Green Lantern comes out today; but here's what other colored Lantern movies might look like

Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds, the world's leading collector of failed superhero franchise leads, opens today. Reynolds plays Hal Jordon, a fearless test pilot who's chosen to become part of an intergalactic peacekeeping force called the Green Lanterns. They use their power rings to harness the green energy of "willpower" (members of the Lantern Corps have been raised on summer blockbusters, so their expressions of willpower look like bad CG) against the yellow force of fear.

There are power rings for every color and emotion of the spectrum in the Green Lantern world. Here's a look at what those Lanterns' movies would be like.
