Reshoots for the upcoming "Power Rangers" reboot movie went ahead as planned over the weekend despite a series of storms that rocked much of the Pacific Northwest and the film's primary shooting location, Vancouver, B.C.

According to pictures obtained by YVRShoots.com, the reshoots were held in a cemetery in Burnaby, a town just east of Vancouver. The location of the reshoots calls into question the narrative importance of the cemetery.
The cemetery could have any number of uses, from a mournful flashback to memorializing a fallen ranger. A teaser trailer released at New York Comic Con showed a "Power Rangers" film tonally in keeping with modern superhero remakes, grounded yet playful. It's possible a ranger or key figure in the film is vanquished by the big bad, Rita Repulsa, or one of her minions.
"Power Rangers" is a reboot of the children's television series "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers," which aired from 1993 to 1995. The original show revolved around the exploits of a group of teenagers gifted with superhuman fighting prowess and enormous mechanical robots called Zords in a quest to defend the Earth from alien threats. The original series has spun off a number of follow-up series over the past two decades.
"Power Rangers" is directed by Dean Israelite and stars Naomi Scott, Becky G., Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lin and RJ Cyler. The film debuts in theaters March 24, 2017.
