Power Rangers 2017

FIRST OFFICIAL LOOK AT POWER RANGERS 2017

Published

Production of Lionsgate’s  2017 Power Rangers is fully underway in Vancouver.  As usual,  Entertainment Weekly has the scoop on what we can expect from the re-booted Power Rangers movie franchise.

Speaking with Director Dean Israelite, EW shed some light on what we can expect from the new generation of galactic heroes:

“From the very beginning, diversity was a very important part of the whole process. We switched all of the races around, but we made sure that the essence of each of those characters are who they were in the original show, and this really will be an origin story of those characters.”

Israelite has also let on that the characters will have to overcome personal issues, that will conflict with them coming together as a team.  Partnering with Weta Workshop, Israelite and his team have created “power costumes” for a new generation:

“We’ve really pushed ourselves to make them feel different from any other superhero costume that’s out there. One key that’s different to the Power Ranger suits is that they’re not really suits that people get into. They’re suits that morph onto our kids, so they already have this almost metaphysical quality to them.”

Power Rangers has been blessed to add an A-List actress in Elizabeth Banks to the cast as Rita Repulsa.  Israelite feels she can embody the diversity of the character, stating:

“It’s very exciting that we got [Banks], and I think what she loves is the opportunity to really embrace the insanity and deliciousness of Rita Repulsa in terms of how weird and wonderful that character was, and really dive into and consume that character. You should always be off-balance when you’re watching her. Is she insane? Is she totally calculated? Does she know what she’s doing? Elizabeth can toe that line really well.”

    When did Power Rangers first appear on the scene? 1993? I believe, like the Ninja Turtles, this franchise has run out of steam and the fact that they are trying to reintroduce them will only lead to poor #s at the box office. The original movie only made $38 million in the states, and that was in their heyday! Time to get some original things turning Lionsgate, I smell a turd here!

      Maybe reintroduced to the big screen, but the Power Rangers have been around for over 20yrs. And still putting out tv episodes today. Which means there must be a very large fan base. So it makes sense to at least try and reintroduce them to the big screen. I for one have always been a fan and am pretty excited. But I do agree, these types of movies can easily end up on the straight to DVD side of things. lol

During a recent interview with Reddit, for ‘Stranger Things: Season 3,’ Dacre Montgomery, who plays Billy on the Netflix series, was probed to find out if we would see the return of a different character of his.  Montgomery, notably is known for his role as Jason “The Red Ranger” in 2017’s ‘Power Rangers’ reboot. Montgomery gave fans hope that we would see a return to the big screen for one of the longest running franchises of all-time. He also may disappoint some fans, stating, he doesn’t believe they will continue with the story and cast that starred  in the 2017 film.

“I think there is a [Power Rangers] movie in the works but it’s not with me and the cast. So yes [a new Power Rangers movie will happen], but not with us.”

The film [Power Rangers] directed by Dean Israelite boasted a $100 mill budget while only bringing home $142.3 mill. [Worldwide] The film went on to earn a 50%. Rotten score, while also bringing home a 65% audience score with 43,717 user rantings. Since then, Hasbro has taken full control of the franchise and back in February were in talks with Paramount Pictures to get a some sort of a reboot off the ground. No official word has been released. But, with San Diego Comic-Con International rapidly approaching, many are hoping for an announcement.

NEW ‘POWER RANGERS’ PROMO ART REVEALS BETTER LOOK AT POWER SUITS

Published

By

New promo art has arrived giving us a better look at 2017’s ‘Power Rangers’ suits in action.  With the movie  set to hit theaters in March.  Promotion of the upcoming him has ramped up tremendously.  Actor Bryan Cranston who is playing Zordon, even went on the offensive while speaking to Huffington Post comparing Power Ranges to ‘The Dark Knight,’ stating:

This is as different a reimagining as the ‘Batman’ television series as it became the ‘Batman’ movie series. You can’t compare those two, and nor can you compare this movie version of the ‘Power Rangers’ to that television series. It’s unrecognizable for the most part. There are tenets of the folklore that you hold onto for sure, but the inspiration is different, and the sensibility of it, and the approach to the film making is completely different.

Take a look at the images below:
