Go, go, Power Rangers! The first full-length trailer of the upcoming ‘Power Rangers’ movie was released at New York Comic-Con on Oct. 5, and it’s EPIC. Click to WATCH!
This is the trailer we’ve been waiting months for. Fans at New York Comic-Con were treated to new footage of the Power Rangers movie, a reboot of the original Power Rangers TV series.
The 2-minute railer follows five high school students as they gain extraordinary powers after exploring a restricted, cave zone. As they start to get control of their new abilities, they soon realize their destiny of becoming a crime-fighting gang of superheroes. But it won’t be that easy, especially with villains out there, looking to end them for good. This definitely looks like a must-watch!
The cast is full of young up-and-comers in Hollywood. Becky G plays Trini, the Yellow Ranger; Dacre Montgomery plays Jason, the Red Ranger; Naomi Scott plays Kimberly, the Pink Ranger; RJ Cyler plays Billy, the Blue Ranger; and Ludi Lin plays Zack, the Black Ranger. Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks are also starring in the film as Zordon and Rita Repulsa.
This isn’t going to be your average Power Rangers movie. It’s a total reimagining of the classic TV series. The Power Rangers are going to have new suits, and the film as a whole is going to be much darker. They’ll likely be fighting bigger villains than Ivan Ooze. Bryan even compared the movie to The Dark Knight!
“I don’t know if the tone is as dark as that because you’re dealing with teenagers,” he told Huffington Post. “So the appropriateness of that, and real teenage life, and going through high school and the cliques and the popularity or lack thereof, and the bullies and all the different sections and sub-sections of high school life, and the insecurities of these kids and things like that — hopes and dreams — and you embrace all of that into a retelling of the ‘Power Rangers.’ And what you would get is this new version, this new reimagined version.”
So get pumped! Power Rangers the movie is set to hit theaters in March 2017!
