Power Rangers – like the Turtles, it’s another of those ’80s/’90s superheroes franchises which were of their time, then died a death. However, since the Turtles have been reborn in a couple of recent movies, with more to come, obviously someone thought the same could happen with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers if they dropped the first two words and added a ton of extra CGI in this tale about a group of high-school kids, who are infused with unique superpowers, and then try to harness their abilities in order to save the world.
This was never really my bag, but for those that love it, Bryan Cranston is Zordon, Elizabeth Banks is Rita Repulsa, Bill Hader is the voice of Alpha 5, and those playing the Rangers are Naomi Scott, Becky G., Ludi Lin, RJ Cyler and Dacre Montgomery.
If you have the first idea what’s going on in this trailer, please tell me.
Power Rangers is due out on the UK on March 24th, 2017.
