Apparently the break down for the new movie has been posted.........not the most informative of synopsis' but here it is.

In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

Also, more news from the set:

Even taking into
account heavy CGI element of Warner Bros. superhero film, Green Lantern, it's fairly obvious that many practical stunts will be used for the action-oriented film. We've even seen several of the large cranes and harnesses that were on the movie set in New Orleans, LA, during the first few days of filming. If you're familiar with the behind-the-scenes work of action films , you already know that accidents and injuries are bound to happen.

Advanced Dark managed to catch up with one of the busiest stuntmen in hollywood, Jeff Wolfe, back in March. They discussed his roles in several upcoming films, including his visit to the Thor movie set. The other day Wolfe mentioned an injury he sustained while working on Green Lantern. No big deal for Wolfe, apparently, since he's still hard at work.

"Ok Ed... here's the update! Little action sequence last week.. Dislocated left shoulder..Big scene..looks awesome.. all good right? Wrong.. had to do another action sequence 12 hours after they popped it back in and a dialogue scene after!

Ever try punching with a recently dislocated shoulder?..not fun! Truly a glamorous biz right? All good now. No permanent damage, just one hell of a bruised arm!"

Though I'm sure none of us would wish injury on anyone in that dangerous line of work, it's good to see the amount of dedication the Green Lantern crew are putting into making this film a success.
