    Wow. These look incredible. I think I have a new wallpaper for my PC

    Kilowog in particular looks great. Sinestro is badass looking. I get more excited every week for this movie.

    Something about Sinestro looks off to me. Maybe it's the extended forehead. Something uncanny valley-ish, like they just missed making it look convincing.

    But I'm still pretty pumped for this movie in a way I hadn't been until the Wondercon footage.

    Sinestro looks stupid.
    Keeping the snidley whiplash mustache is pro though, i hope his name is sinestro when he is good still and they act surprised when he goes evil.

    As opposed to how a real alien would look?

    I think they both look ok...

    When the only thing identifying you as an alien is a slighty enlarged forehead and a different skin tone, you could just keep the skin tone and not bother with the forehead because it looks fake.

    I thought Sinestro was mostly prosthetics and some digital touchups (aside from the costume).

    They look pretty good to me. The aliens in this movie look fantastic.

    Awesome. Though Kilowog looks a little bit off at that angle, and I wish they had kept the huge wide jaw.

    But that's an identifying feature of the character. And say the whole species has large foreheads (I know Korugarians don't all have them but just pretend) that's part of what makes them alien to us.

    They're better than the Thor posters, but Drew Struzan still weeps for the artform.

    Kinda wondering why they paid live action artists at all.

    I always thought Sinestro's forehead was an artistic choice on the part of the comic artist (like having women with huge boobs/wrist-sized waists and even sleek heroes with impossibly large physiques), so seeing it realized as an actually large, semi-bulby head is a mixed bag for me.

    Conversely though, and I guess this means I'm inconsistent, but I always pictured Kilowog's jaw to be bigger. However, NOW that's me being nitpicky (I've rarely been satisfied with Kilowog's non-comic appearances).

    Other than that, I agree about the Thor posters. These are a lot more dynamic, even if they're standing still trying to look bad-ass. Environment really helps.

    Wow, these look like crap. We get a shaved poodle on steroids called Kilowog, there's Tomar-Re who doesn't get a costume, he gets body paint...and Sinestro...wow, they really went out of their way to make this look stupid.
    Add to that the train wrecks called Thor and Captian America and we have a trio of crap that people will think looks great.
