Rita Repulsa’s witchcraft has always proved a defining trait, what with creating monsters left and right in attempts to take over the world. Now the sorceress and her power are front and center in the latest TV spot for the Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers.”
In the 30-second promo, titled “You Five,” Elizabeth Banks’ deliciously sinister character offers enticing clues about her history with the Rangers and showcases her might. “I’ve killed Rangers before,” she hisses.
Perhaps the most iconic villain in the long-running action-adventure series, it makes perfect sense for Rita to take the stage as the film’s primary antagonist. It’s been 22 years since last we saw the classic Mighty Morphin Rangers on screen, and this franchise reboot will introduce them to a new generation.
Directed by Dean Israelite, the film 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.
Opening March 24, the film 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 Gomez as the Yellow Ranger, Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa.
