The new designs are right in the line with more Japanese inspired look of the new Ranger suits in the film. While I am still partial to the designs from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers / Super Sentai Series from Japan, I am excited to see what looks like an anime to come life in a live-action American film.

The full site for RangerNation.com launches next month and you can expect to see many of the new toys, most likely revealing Zordon, Alpha, the Putty Patrol and Goldar ahead of the film’s release.

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.

‘Power Rangers’: Jason is in Trouble

Dacre Montgomery who stars as Jason/The Red Ranger (and recently added to Stranger Things 2) shared with us a new photo from the film via his Instagram account featuring Jason looking troubled in his bedroom.

The upcoming reboot of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will take on a darker, less campy tone compared to the original series which premiered in the early nineties. The film simply titled Power Rangers dropped its first trailer at New York Comic-Con a few weeks ago and while it introduced us to the new take on the franchise, it included just enough attitude and martial arts to remind us these are still the same rangers many of us grew up loving.

Dacre Montgomery who stars as Jason/The Red Ranger (and recently added to Stranger Things 2shared with us a new photo from the film via his Instagram account featuring Jason looking troubled in his bedroom. We already saw Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) attack Trini (Becky Gomez) in her bedroom via the trailer so it’s possible she could be paying Jason a visit as well. Whatever the case is, the pants Jason has on have some tears across the upper leg portion. Judging from his build, it would seem like this occurs after the teenagers discover the alien rock that contains their power coins.

EDIT: the picture has since been removed from the Actors Instagram account.

New ‘Power Rangers’ Posters Revealed

It’s morphin’ time. Thanks to IGN, we just got our first look at the new posters for Power Rangers. The posters feature each ranger posing and ready to take on Rita Repulsa and the Putty Patrol. It is expected that Lionsgate will reveal the first footage from the film at NYCC this weekend.

The posters are definitely a step up from the last set released by the studio which had one that featured Billy chilling atop his Megazord. While the new ranger designs look more like MMPR meets Iron Man, it’s exciting to have a fresh take on the rangers for a new generation to fall in love with. My only hope is that we get some kind of call back to the original MMPR movie. What would you like to see? Personally I would love a cheesy roller blading scene for absolutely no reason or maybe the inclusion of a track from the original film such as “Free Ride” by Dan Hartman, or “Dreams” by Van Halen.

The film is directed by Dean Israelite and stars Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger, Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, R.J. Cyler as the Blue Ranger, and Becky Gomez as the Yellow Ranger.
