April 27, 2011, 6:48 am GMT

Warner Bros has released new character posters for Kilowog as well as Sinestro, and allegedly spent an extra $9 million to get a better visual effects for the forthcoming movie.



Two aliens of "Green Lantern" have got their own posters. After Warner Bros. Pictures released a character poster of Tomar-Re, the studio has now unleashed new character posters featuring Kilowog (voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan) and Sinestro (portrayed by Mark Strong).

In another "Green Lantern" news, WB is reportedly having a visual effects problem. According to Variety, the studio faced a crisis regarding on-time completion of the special effects. Thus, the studio has decided to spend an extra $9 million to overcome the problem.

However, Chris de Faria, WB executive VP of digital production, animation and visual effects, claimed that "Green Lantern" did not have a problem. The exec said, "There is no problem on 'Green Lantern'. We try to add things to make the movie better until the 11th hour. That doesn't mean we're risking the movie up to the 11th hour."

Apparently, "Green Lantern" is not the only film under the threat of the visual effects issue. Also allegedly having the same problem include "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon". Variety indicates that the matter is increasing in coming years.

Victoria Alonso, Marvel exec VP of visual effects, commented on the problem. "I think the day [the system] breaks is the day everyone will revise their thinking," so she said. "Until that day comes, filmmakers are going to push it to the limit. I think it's sad that we will have to watch one of us fail to learn our lesson."

"Green Lantern" revolves around Hal Jordan, an ordinary man chosen by a dying alien named Abin Sur to receive a green energy-powered ring used for protecting the planet. As a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the universe, the fate of Earth lies in Hal's hands.

In addition to the actors mentioned above, the movie adapted from D.C. Comics has Ryan Reynolds stars as Jordan, with Blake Lively starring as Carol Ferris and Peter Sarsgaard as Dr. Hector Hammond. Directed by Martin Campbell, the film is scheduled to make its way out in theaters across the nation on June 17.
