How Do You Say 'Green Lantern' in Russian?

Now here's a trend I can get behind: "[U]p to December, there hadn't been a single Russian film in the top 20. The film expected to create a bombastic box-office crater -– war epic Burnt By the Sun 2, at $40m the country's most expensive production ever –- fizzled out embarrassingly when part two was released in May. A few years ago, Russians learned to stop worrying and love the blockbuster as they began producing SFX-laden spectaculars like Night Watch; now they're learning about the flipside -– the car-crash pleasures of rubbernecking a box-office flop."

    This is not true, or probably semantically wrong sentence. Either way, it's incorrect.
