An all-new take on the fan favorite and long lasting “Power Rangers” franchise is about to leap into theaters this Friday. Ahead of the reboot’s anticipated debut, Comic Book Resources has your exclusive first look at a new batch of stills from the film that feature the villainous Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) as well as the heroic Blue and Red Rangers.
The images, which you can check out in the gallery below, include a menacing shot of Rita as well as a few images of the Rangers on the hunt. The first image features Bank’s snarling villain getting up close and personal with Becky G’s Trini (also known as the Yellow Ranger). Other images show the Red Ranger (Dacre Montgomery) stalking the halls of a metallic spaceship as well as on the hunt in a wooded area. Another pic of the Blue Ranger (R.J. Cyler) shows the team high up on a mountaintop. You can check out all the new images by clicking on the gallery below.
Opening Friday nationwide, the reboot of “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove — and the world — is on the verge of obliteration by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, they quickly discover they’re 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.
“Power Rangers” 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, Becky G as the Yellow Ranger, Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa.
