It’s been a busy few weeks for Power Rangers, finally, we got our first look at the movies footage in the shape of the first trailer, now we have some more new images. This feature film has been a long time coming and from day one we knew the campy retro style from TV Show was out the window for a gritty origins version. These new images back up that ground take on the Power Rangers…
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove — and the world — is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.
Check out the movie’s first teaser trailer here , let us know what you think. Do we see something that might resemble something similar vein to Chronicle? The comparisons are hard to ignore but don’t let this put you off, as despite the new contemporary look there will be plenty of references, to keep the old school fans happy. They might not be campy, might not look like a Power Rangers movie, but when you read the synopsis this is essentially a Rangers movie for the 21st Century.
Power Rangers is set for a March 2017 (possibly 24th) UK&Irish Release date with Bryan Cranston as the mighty Zordon and Elizabeth Banks as super-powered villain Rita Repulsa. The rangers themselves are made up from singer Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini, Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly, and RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy.
