Green Lantern Vancouver Premiere

Comments 93 by Rebecca Bollwitt

One of this summer’s superhero blockbusters, Green Lantern, starring Vancouverite Ryan Reynolds, is hitting theatres next week and our city is joining in on a series of worldwide premiere events.

On Monday, June 13th, there will be a night projection of the Green Lantern logo somewhere in the downtown core at 9:00pm (safely after the Canucks game). The first 17 people to find it will win double passes to the Vancouver premiere (two days before the global release) and everyone else who finds it will have a chance to win other prizes from Warner Brothers Canada.

They haven’t said where the projection will be but they have been releasing clues every day, which I am able to post.

June 6: During the Olympics streets near this building were closed for the celebrations of superheroes clad in red & white.
June 7: Everyday it overlooks the most artistic building in Vancouver.
June 8: One of its neighbors is a vault for priceless works of art.
June 9: If shopping is your superpower, you can utilize it at this building.
June 10: Masked with secrecy this building has no windows.
June 11: One of its neighbors has never lost to its archenemy: high clothing prices.
June 12: If villains needed money to fund their evil plans they would target its neighbour recognized by its green logo.
June 13: The Sears Building Vancouver 701 Granville Street

I will be sharing the daily clues as I receive them up until Monday. You can also enter to win a double pass for the Vancouver premiere from me. Here’s how:

  • Leave a comment with the one superpower you wish you could have (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
  • I entered to win premiere passes to #GreenLantern from @WBPicturesCan & @Miss604

    I will draw one winner on Monday, June 13th after the night projection event. Green Lantern opens in theatres nationwide in 3D and 2D on Friday, June 17, 2011.

    Update The winner is Deidre!

      I wish I had the ability to conjure up the delicious meals I see in pictures. I would grab a healthy eating magazine or cookbook look at the picture, then in ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ style I would fold my arms and nod my head and *poof* dinner is served 🙂 That would be AWESOME!

    24. JulesThursday, June 9th, 2011 — 4:28pm PDT

      ‘probability warping intrinsic field’… so I would win any contest I ever entered. I’m sure it would have something to do with quantum mechanics.

      Actually, the Black Cat (Spiderman foil) has a similar power, but instead of making her luck good, it makes that of those around her bad. Which is good for her, if they mean her harm.

    25. AishaThursday, June 9th, 2011 — 4:29pm PDT

      I wish I was a human lie detector.

    26. KarenThursday, June 9th, 2011 — 4:30pm PDT

      With all the accidents these days, I wish I didn’t have to sit in traffic or be affected be other people’s driving – so something to the effect of getting to places without actually traveling. Simply appear and disappear.

    54. A.J.Friday, June 10th, 2011 — 12:50pm PDT

      I would love to be able to teleport around. How great would it be to have the ability to be anywhere at anytime? Totally trumps invisibility… but maybe not mind reading haha!

      Still going with teleportation as the one super power I would want.
