In Brightest Day, In Coldest Light, GREEN LANTERN SFX Wrapped Last Night!

After much concern from fans, visual effects for the Green Lantern film are finally complete. How do we know? Geoff Johns posted this picture from the SFX wrap party last night.
Pretty….cool, huh? Sorry, I had to.
Back in early April, Green Lantern producer Donald De Line spoke about the rush to finish the film in time for its June 17th release date. “We’ve had a very tight post- production schedule. We have over 1500 visual effects shots in this movie, which is a lot,” he said. “And we have to convert to 3D. That pushes your schedule up even tighter so they can go through this painstaking conversion process. You want to do it with the right quality so you need a lot of lead time. Those things conspired to make what seemed like a decent amount of post feel like incredibly pressured.”
De Line also said their visual effects houses were working non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week but that he’s excited about what they have to offer.
It’s good to know that although it was cutting it extremely close, the hard work paid off and the movie is completed. Johns also mentioned something he heard at the wrap party that I found interesting considering the location and company they were in. “Just overheard two drunk people arguing whether or not Green Lantern’s weakness is the color yellow,” he wrote on Twitter. I’d assume those people worked on the film so now I’m wondering whether that particular aspect of the mythos is included in this version.
