‘Power Rangers’ Officially Rated PG-13

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-2-12-50-pm

The upcoming feature film reboot of the Fox Kids series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a major departure from the original series. It is essentially a total reimagining featuring a much darker and more mature take as opposed to the colorful and campy children’s series.

Power Rangers Now has reported that the film has officially received a PG-13 rating. As we have seen the in the trailer, the film with real teenage issues such as bullying as the characters struggle to find their place in the world.

After an incredible teaser trailer that got the world’s attention, myself and many fans have begun to temper their excitement having yet to see a full trailer that features the Rangers in their full suits and in action with their Zords with only two months left to go until the film’s release. But chances Lionsgate is saving the premiere of the official trailer until the Superbowl when they’ll have the chance to capture the world’s attention once more.

Power Rangers hits theaters on March 24, 2017.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott (Red Ranger), RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott as Kimberly Hart (Pink Ranger), Becky G as Trini Kwan (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor (Black Ranger), Bill Hader as Alpha 5, Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, and Bryan Cranston as Zordon.

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids 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 that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

First Look at Bryan Cranston as Zordon in ‘Power Rangers’

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-2-12-50-pm

The upcoming film reboot for Power Rangers which features an alien like redesign for all of the characters in a darker, more mature take on the franchise has so far offered us looks at the new suits, Zords, and villains in almost every single way but in the film except for Rita Repulsa. We’ve gotten posters featuring the new suits and Zords, images of the new toys revealing Goldar and the new Putties, but until now we have yet to see the new look for Zordon who is played by Bryan Cranston.

The new design for Zordon has come through a rather potato quality photo of a phone demoing the new virtual reality experience from Lionsgate for the film which will make its debut tomorrow at CES in Las Vegas. While most of the designs have been major departures from the original series, the new look for Zordon is much more familiar and for the most part just looks like Bryan Cranston with a blue face.

As I’ve said before, I am beginning to lose confidence in the film. After getting the world’s attention with a fantastic teaser trailer, Lionsgate has revealed nothing else from the film except for a rather cloudy poster of the new Zords. The studio needs to get moving on the marketing campaign because at this point I would venture to say the average moviegoer has no idea this film is even coming out.

Toys R Us Reveals Putty Patrol Action Figure From ‘Power Rangers’

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-2-12-50-pm

The new design for Rita Repulsa’s Putty Patrol from the upcoming film reboot of Power Rangers has been revealed through a toy just like the Zords, Megazord, and Goldar. So far everything we have seen has been reimagined with an alien-like design for the new film which has swapped out the colorful campy tone for a darker, more mature take on the rangers. Rather than the monsters made from clay looking like stuntmen in gray suits, the new Putties look very much like actual monsters made from clay. I think the studio had the right intention behind the new look of the Putties but much like the new design for Goldar, the execution is poor.

As someone who grew up as a huge Power Rangers fan (I’m talking Halloween costumes, Power Rangers themed Birthday parties, the whole nine) I am beginning to temper my excitement for the release of the upcoming film. We are now just over two months away from the release of the film and all we have seen so far are posters and a teaser trailer, albeit an awesome teaser trailer that got everyone’s attention, we have still yet to see any shots from the film of the Rangers in action sporting their full suits as they take on the villains. With the lack of a new trailer during what felt like trailer week 2016 last month and the continued revealing of characters from the film through toys, I’m quickly beginning to lose confidence in the film Dean Israelite has helmed for Lionsgate.

‘Power Rangers’: First Look at Goldar

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-2-12-50-pm

Like the Zords and Megazords, the first look at the redesigned Goldar from the upcoming reboot of Power Rangers comes to us via the official toy to be released by Bandai.

The new design for Goldar falls right in line with the alien aesthetics of the new Ranger suits and Zord designs from the upcoming film. Rather than being a beast like animal with Gold armor, the new Goldar is a completely gold alien monster and let’s just be honest, as far as a toy goes, he looks horrible. I’ll wait to reserve judgment until I saw him in action in the film, but the toy itself looks like someone literally dipped him in a gold.

‘Power Rangers’ Plot Details Emerge: Rita Repulsa is a Former Green Ranger Gone Rogue

Screen Shot 2016-12-10 at 1.09.47 PM.png

New details on the plot of the upcoming reboot of Power Rangers have emerged. The film itself is a darker, more mature reimagining the colorful campy children’s series from the nineties. Along with a total redesign of the Rangers’ suits came a new look for the villainous alien invader hell bent on world domination Rita Repulsa. Considering the series has always used colors to distinguish the rangers from one another, myself and many began to speculate that Rita’s new green and gold suit could signal that she was harnessing the power of the dragon coin which she had given to Tommy Oliver in the original series, transforming him into the Green ranger to help her take on the Power Rangers.

According to The Wrap, Rita Repulsa is, in fact, harnessing the dragon coin as she is the former Green Ranger gone rogue. In the film, Rita will be attempting to resurrect her lackey Goldar after he was vaporized into microscopic gold particles many centuries ago. It seems the film will be also pulling elements other versions other than Mighty Morphin Power Rangers including Power Rangers Zeo. In this new version, Goldar was created with the purpose of stealing the Zeo crystal, the artifact which the Rangers’ power stems from. The film will inject a ticking clock as the rangers will only have 71 hours to stop her. My bet is on them failing and Rita supersizing Goldar to give the Rangers an opportunity to use the Megazord in battle. Rita will be trying to deliver the Zeo crystal to Mighty Morphin’s other major villain, her master Lord Zedd.

The putty patrol will also be on hand as the report states they will appear in multiple action sequences including a bank heist in Russia.

The film seems to be retooling the origin of Zordon as well. In the original series, Zordon created the Power Morphers after he was trapped him in a time warp. The report also states that in the film, Zordon was the original red Ranger before being trapped in a state of pure energy.

Power Rangers hits theaters on March 24, 2017.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott (Red Ranger), RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott as Kimberly Hart (Pink Ranger), Becky G as Trini Kwan (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor (Black Ranger), Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, Bill Hader as Alpha 5, and Bryan Cranston as Zordon.

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids 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 that they are the only ones who can save the planet.

Screen Shot 2016-12-08 at 3.14.56 PM.png

Thanks to a new poster debuting via Comicbook.com, we have our first official look at the Zords from the upcoming Power Rangers reboot of the popular Fox Kids series from the nineties. Up until now, we have only seen the new Zords in a set of leaked images revealing the toys from the film.

The new poster gives a clear look at the Yellow Rangers Sabertooth tiger Zord with the Red Ranger Tyrannosaurus Zord in the background and the Pink Rangers Teradactyl Zord swooping in from above. Trini (Becky Gomez) is visible piloting her Zord from the cockpit.

Rita Repulsa is Back in a New ‘Power Rangers’ Photo

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-2-12-50-pm

The feature film reboot of the Fox Kids series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a major departure from the original series, featuring a much darker and more mature take as opposed to the colorful and campy children’s series. Power Rangers features an overhaul of the suits worn by the Rangers as well as the alien invader, hell bent on world domination Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks).

Repulsa is making her return to Earth, beginning her plot for world domination, making her first step as she takes over the Rangers Twitter and Instagram accounts today. The new image see’s Repulsa in her new green costume with her redesigned staff. What’s interesting about Repulsa green costume is that Power Rangers has always used the colored suits to differentiate the Rangers from one another while in battle.

In the original series, the villainous Tommy Oliver (Jason David Frank) originally sported a green suit with gold accents which he harnessed from the dragon power coin, given to him by Repulsa in order to help her defeat the Rangers. With the green ranger absent from the upcoming reboot, and Repulsa sporting a green suit herself, it’s possible that Repulsa could be harnessing the dragon power coin herself.

Power Rangers hits theaters on March 24, 2017.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott (Red Ranger), RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott as Kimberly Hart (Pink Ranger), Becky G as Trini Kwan (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor (Black Ranger), Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Bill Hader as Alpha 5.
