Lionsgate has released a new trailer for "Power Rangers," featuring the creation of Goldar, our five Rangers battling Rita Repulsa, some Megazord action, and an Alpha-5 body-slam.
The trailer begins with scenes familiar from the first trailer, showing the "teenagers-with-attitudes" discovering the Ranger coins, testing their new abilities, and finally morphing into their new armor. Zordon asks whether they have any questions, which makes Billy reference the Marvel Cinematic Universe by asking, "Are we more like Iron Man or Spider-Man?"
What is new is watching the villainous Rita Repulsa create her faithful servant Goldar in what appears to be a sunken construction site. From there, the Rangers take to their Zords to form the gigantic Megazord in a battle with Goldar high above the streets of Angel Grove. The footage ends with Alpha-5 delivering a body-slam to what looks like a miniature Putty while screaming, "Yeah! Power Rangers!"
A reboot of “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” 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.
Directed by Dean Israelite and starring 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. “Power Rangers” hits theaters on March 24.
