Green Lantern Needs A Brighter Bulb

Green Lantern, the latest superhero commodity to hit theaters debuted with a nice $53 million, but still behind recent other superhero movies, including X-Men: First Class ($55.1 million) and Thor ($65.7 million). Also, the rumored $150 million plus budget (it may actually be closer to $200 million) doesn't bode well for Green Lantern. A strong overseas performance will most likely recoup that.

As for Jim Carrey's Mr. Popper's Penguins, it made a decent $18.2 million for a third place finish behind Super 8.
