Get Your First Look At The New ‘Power Rangers’.


power-rangers-2017-poster-teaser

So it’s a fairly well known fact that the Power Rangers, much like many popular shows/properties is getting a reboot.  This morning we got our first look at the teaser trailer for the official Power Rangers film.  I say official film because last year an amazing UNofficial short film was released, that you can see be clicking here.  While some people were confused as to weather or not the official movie would follow the same path as the fan film, this concern is more than put to bed.  The new trailer seems a bit more like ‘Chronicle’, mixed with a dash of ‘Twilight’.  And although just the word “Twilight” may be off-putting to some, the basic concept of teenagers in a small town some of whom have special abilities is what I’m getting at.  There are some darker aspects to the teaser as well.  Rita Repulsa, the main villain of the piece says the words “I’ve killed other Rangers before”, which is something that was NEVER said in the original series.  “I’ll get you!” was the most common threat used in the original show, and even in the 1995 movie, the threat of death was never really present.  The trailer teases the suits, and has an apparent lack of Zords, however, if you were a Might Morphin Power Rangers fan back in the day, sound off in the comments and let us know how you feel about this reboot.

Following the first look at Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, EW has debuted the updated costumes the young heroes of the Power Rangers reboot will sport. They’re immediately recognizable, (more or less) but fans may still take issue with some of the radical changes to the classic outfits.

According to director Dean Israelite, the costumes are actually “translucent extraterrestrial armor that crystallizes around their bodies.” He continues: “Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.”
