Legendary passed on Green Lantern when Warner Bros tried to co-finance with them, leaving the $200+ million budget all to Warner Bros. Green Lantern had a rocky time reaching theaters and the first released trailer was met with disappointment, which Warner Bros would later acknowledge, when most of the vfx money shots were not finished yet and couldn’t be included in the trailer. Warner Bros would also keep throwing cash at the project, spending millions adding more visual effects before release and adding more pixels does not mean the film will connect any more with audiences. The ad spend was reported at over $100 million in the US with $55 million in TV ads and $75 million overseas, though not all of that was spent by WB, but through cross promotional tie ins with companies all over the globe. Green Lantern opened in the US to $53,174,303 a soft number for a film with hundreds of millions of dollars behind it. Word of mouth was not strong and the film plummeted 66.1% in its second weekend to $18,028,056 when Cars 2 and Bad Teacher led the box office. The pic sank 63.6% in its third frame to $6,556,612 when Transformers: Dark Of The Moon took most of the box office to itself and it closed its disappointing domestic run with $116,601,172. Overseas, Warner Bros released the film to less than blockbuster numbers, killing off their planned franchise. It took in $103.2 million from the rest of the world, bringing the film’s worldwide total to $219 million, which would leave Warner Bros with about $120 million after theaters take their cut of the gross. Along with the film, Warner Bros released tons of Green Lantern merchandise, which did cushion the massive loss the film left.
