With just less than a week before Green Lantern opens in cinemas, Warner Bros. has released a plethora of scenes from the new film based on the popular DC Comics superhero. After the jump you will find eight clips in all, many of which feature key moments of the film and should be considered spoilers. Directed by Martin Campbell, co-produced by DC's Green Lantern writer himself, Geoff Johns, and starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Angella Bassett and Tim Robbins, Green Lantern opens June 17.

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.
