“Rita tries to make Trini feel like she’s the weakest link of the Power Rangers, and she feels it’s easiest to go for her,” Gomez told Entertainment Weekly. “Rita’s the type to play a lot of mind games, and Trini’s [thinking], ‘Can I really overpower Rita Repulsa or can I not?'”
She added that she performed her own stunts in the scene, saying, “When we did our blocking, our run through, Elizabeth and I really wanted and to make it fun, to make this scene as real as possible. Actually, I got to run through the wall a couple of times. I got thrown up against it and I got to break it myself. My stunt double of course was there, talking me through it, but I was really, really excited. It was a bit intimidating for me because, you know, it’s Elizabeth [Banks]! I look up to her a lot as an actress, so getting to work one on one with her is really cool. I learned a lot, and there were moments when I had to hit her, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I hope I don’t actually hit her!’ She really let me be hands on in a lot of the fighting, so it was cool.”
“We’re done with the majority of filming now,” she shared. “We have some reshoots coming up which I’m excited for, because I’ll get to see everybody again. We have Comic-Con before that, which is even more exciting because it’ll be my first time ever… Little did I know I would be going as an official Power Ranger.”
The “Power Rangers” movie is currently filming in British Columbia, Canada. The execs behind the film are positive it could lead to several sequels, as Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer indicated a few weeks back, “We are really, really excited about the ‘Power Rangers’ movie…We could see doing five or six or seven.”
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 and Becky Gomez as the Yellow Ranger, “Power Rangers” morphs into theaters March 24, 2017.
