Lionsgate has released a new set of “Power Rangers” pictures featuring each of the rangers striking a heroic pose. The upcoming “Power Rangers” film features brand-new designs for the rangers’ iconic suits, and the newly released images get up close and personal with the heroes’ attire.
“Power Rangers” is a reboot of the 1993 children’s show “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.” The new film will follow in the original series’ footsteps, charting the transformation of five small town teenagers from ordinary kids to superheroes charged with defeating a legion of aliens and their sinister witch leader, Rita Repulsa.
Last week, Adi Shankhar, showrunner for the recently announced Netflix adaptation of the video game series “Castelvania,” said he is working on another kind of “Power Rangers” reboot—a dark and gritty one that’s aiming for an R-rating. Meanwhile, earlier this week, GameStop announced it will release an exclusive line of glittery Pop! Television figures that harken back to the original “Might Morphin Power Rangers.” For Valentine’s Day, the “Power Rangers” Twitter account crossed the movie franchise streams when Rita Repulsa took over, tweeting at the “Hunger Games” account.
Debuting in theaters March 24, “Power Rangers” is a production of Lionsgate directed by Dean Israelite and starring Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks.
