While Green Lantern hasn’t exactly lit up the box-office, Warner Brothers has decided it will move forward with a sequel to this summer’s super hero film.
Sources say Warners still believes in the franchise, even if the studio is “somewhat disappointed” with Green Lantern’s result.
Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman said the movie is settling in, pointing out that movies with a hard core fan audience pics often see a significant drop-off in their second weekends.
Lantern cost a reported $200 million to make and it may have a difficult time recouping that figure domestically. The competition gets steeper this weekend with the opening of the third Transformers movie.
