Lionsgate’s released the first teaser poster for the Power Rangers reboot which isn’t hitting theaters until March 24, 2017. The studio’s hoping the 2017 feature film will be the first of many involving the Blue, Yellow, Black, Red, and Pink Rangers. Project Almanac‘s Dean Israelite is at the helm and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) was just recently announced as playing Zordon. RJ Cyler is the Blue Ranger, Becky G is the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin is the Black Ranger, Dacre Montgomery is the Red Ranger, and Naomi Scott is the Pink Ranger. Elizabeth Banks is also on board to play arch-villain Rita Repulsa.
Power Rangers is written by John Gatins (Kong: Skull Island), Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold), Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class), and Max Landis (Chronicle). Power Rangers creator Haim Saban, Brian Casentini, Wyck Godfrey, and Marty Bowen are producing.
The Plot: 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.
