Saw GREEN LANTERN yesterday on Austrian TV and – even though it was another synchronized German version (Gah!) – I simply knew that this pointy-eared alien Sinestro would have to be a British guy.
When I looked up the actor, Mark Strong, in Wikipedia, I found out that he’s half Austrian, half Italian. He was born in London and studied In München. So I guess, he’s quite the European. After only one season of LOW WINTER SUN, Fox’s replacement of BREAKING BAD, Strong was cast for 6 (!) films in 2014, 1 ( GRIMSBY ) to be released in 2015 and there are more very interesting projects on the horizon.
I’ll have my eyes on you, Herr Salussolia.
Btw. I don’t understand why GREEN LANTERN flopped – it’s a great film with a terrific story and very good actors.
I didn’t go to the cinemas to watch the Green Lantern, because I looked so fifties …
After seeing it on TV, I must admit that I liked the movies, although I still did not like how the ring etc. looked like … but the story was good !
It DID look fifties, Ingmar, the ring design reminds me even of the twenties (remember Corbusier?) … I like it that those early sci-fi aesthetics are kept alive in this film (maybe because they remind me of the sci-fi books I nicked off my elder brother when I was a teenie)
