It's Morphin Time in New Power Rangers International Trailer

24 February 2017 3:45 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In exactly one month, Lionsgate will unleash their new Power Rangers reboot in theaters, which is shaping up to be one of this spring's early blockbusters. To get fans ready for "morphin' time," Lionsgate has released an international trailer, which includes new footage of the villainous Rita Repulsa. It remains to be seen how much more footage will be released between now and the March 24 release date, but we'll most likely be seeing a few more clips in the days and weeks ahead.

This trailer, which surfaced on YouTube, comes just one week after the Power Rangers final trailer surfaced, with most of the footage here coming from that sneak peek. The new Rita Repulsa scene gives fans a better grasp on how powerful she truly is, and we also get to see how huge Goldar really is.

Prepare For A Mighty Morphin’ Origin Story With The International Trailer For Power Rangers

24 February 2017 9:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the Hollywood calendar, January and February are often relatively quiet months as the Powers That Be brace for annual award shows such as the Golden Globes and the Oscars. But as we inch closer to March, we’re beginning to see a marked uptick in new releases, and soon moviegoers will be bidding adieu to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine via Logan. It’s 2017’s second R-rated movie to be lauded with critical acclaim at launch – John Wick: Chapter 2 being the first – but there’s another high-profile tentpole looming on the horizon, and it’s literally worlds away from mutant dystopias and well-tailored assassins.

We are, of course, referring to Power RangersDean Israelite’s (Project Almanac) lavish reboot that takes the core elements of Saban’s color-coded heroes, slaps on a new lick of paint, and catapults them toward the silver screen. Headed up by soon-to-be Stranger Things »

Why Everyone Is Freaking Out Over the New Power Rangers Trailer

23 February 2017 10:50 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In the age of reboots, it's hard to tell the gems from the trash. The original trailer for Power Rangers introduced a new class of teenage fighters played by Naomi Scott (Pink), Becky G (Yellow), Ludi Lin (Black), Rj Cyler (Blue), and Dacre Montgomery (Red). The latest teaser not only provides a peek at Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa - who looked crazy-cool on the set - Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Bill Hader as the voice of Alpha 5, but also includes a reference to Iron Man and Spider-Man! Why are our geek brains so happy right now? The movie will be out March 24.

Red Ranger Goes Unmasked in Power Rangers Character Posters

23 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's almost Morphin Time! The all-new Power Rangers will be invading movie theaters in less than a month, and Lionsgate is probably more excited about unleashing these teenage heroes than you are to watch the actual movie. Case in point, they have just release a ton of new posters featuring these super powered Millennials. And we get a good look at their Zords. The main poster in this latest batch even unmasks the Red Ranger, played by Dacre Montgomery.

Saban's Power Rangers 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 being obliterated by an alien threat.

Power Rangers Runtime Confirmed As New Poster Gathers The Fresh-Faced Heroes

20 February 2017 1:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We are, at the time of writing, little over a month away from the theatrical release of Dean Israelite’s Power Rangers reboot and with it, the birth of a newfound film franchise at Lionsgate.

At least, that’s the idea. To date, the studio’s bold reimagining has split audiences right down the middle, with many taking issue with some of the design choices and indeed changes being made to both the Rangers and their companions – from Bryan Cranston’s all-powerful Zordon to Alpha 5, the sprightly, sentient robot portrayed by Bill Hader. And that’s before you toss Elizabeth Banks’ sneering Rita Repulsa into the mix.

But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves, as it’s always best to judge the final product than the smattering of promos that precede it. Speaking of which, we now have confirmation that Power Rangers will run for just over two hours – 124 minutes, »

A Movie Marathon for Sports Films Lovers

19 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Many of these films include suspense, excitement, and a good moral lesson to tug on the heartstrings. Below you will find a good place to start your next sports movie marathon, a list of some iconic sports films:

RushThe first movie in our marathon is about the sport of Formula One Racing. Rush stars Daniel Bruhl, Chris Hemsworth, and Olivia Wilde and tells the story of a 1970’s racing rivalry in Germany. Bonus point for this movie because it is based on a true story.

Coming Distractions: The new Power Rangers trailer shows off its superhero side

18 February 2017 9:26 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Beneath all the martial arts action and giant, teetering robots, the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers have always had a pretty standard superhero origin story, with a handful of teens stumbling into extraterrestrial abilities and a whole “great power, great responsibility” thing. The latest trailer for the upcoming Power Rangers makes that connection explicit, with the teen team labeling themselves as superheroes, and even name-checking a few popular Marvel bigwigs.

Of course, that doesn’t mean the movie’s ignoring the “giant robots totter around a city” part of the equation, either; we get a slightly longer look at the team’s Zords in action, plus Zordon, Rita Repulsa, and Alpha 5 (Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks, and Bill Hader, respectively) all getting a chance to shine. Power Rangers arrives in theaters on March 24.

"Five little Rangers - how cute." Lionsgate has unveiled another brand new 60-second trailer for the Power Rangers movie, directed by Dean Israelite, in theaters in March - about a month from now. The full trailer hit just last month, but this new trailer has even more footage - including a few scenes with Rita Repulsa gearing up to take on the cute little Power Rangers. The cast is lead by: Naomi Scott as The Pink Ranger, Becky G. as The Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as The Black Ranger, Rj Cyler as The Blue Ranger, and Dacre Montgomery as The Red Ranger. Also starring Bryan Cranston as Zordon, Bill Hader as the voice of Alpha 5, Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, as well as David Denman, Sarah Grey, Emily Maddison, and Caroline Cave.

New ‘Power Rangers’ Trailer Showcases Elizabeth Banks, Goldar, and the Zords

17 February 2017 1:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“The answer of what is happening to you is here.”

So says the commanding voice of Zordon (Bryan Cranston) to five recently empowered superhero teens in the latest “Power Rangers” trailer. The footage has the quintet, slowly learning how to use their powers, battling alien invader Rita Repulsa, played by none other than Elizabeth Banks.

“Five little rangers,” Banks, dressed in green armor and holding a golden scepter, sneers. “How cute.”

Final Power Rangers Trailer Can’t Figure Out If It’s Iron Man Or Spider-Man

17 February 2017 12:41 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you didn’t know any better, you’d assume next month kicked off the summer. Between Logan, Beauty and the Beast, Kong: Skull Island and Ghost in the Shell, it’s filled with tons of blockbusters, and that’s without mentioning Power Rangers. Director Dean Israelite’s revamped reboot is a younger, slicker take on the corny children’s TV series, and this final trailer isn’t afraid to flaunt that.

The new one-minute teaser favors jokes as much as it does the goofy, larger-than-life action, and while it’s unclear if the final product will work, it looks like the filmmakers took a tongue-in-cheek approach here. What a relief. While screenwriter Max Landis is given a writing credit, his script was ultimately discarded – though you might think otherwise, with the film seemingly mimicking Chronicle just as much as it does Iron Man.

Michael Cudlitz may be deader-than-dead on “The Walking Dead,” but he’s coming back to TV life in the form of a broadcast comedy.

Cudlitz has signed on to star in ABC’s hourlong pilot “The Trustee,” Variety has learned.

The Trustee” is described as a fun female buddy cop comedy. The pilot follows a stubborn detective who finds unlikely help from her precinct’s trustee, a larger-than-life ex-con finishing out her prison sentence doing menial tasks for the police department. Though the duo has completely opposing views on crime and punishment, a highly entertaining and successful partnership is born.

Cudlitz will play Captain Timothy Waits, a wry and sardonic police captain who has learned to appreciate Eliza Radley’s — played by Meaghan Rath– unorthodox policing methods.

Jay Scherick and David Ronn penned the pilot and will serve as executive producers, along with Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman. Warner Bros. Television is producing, along »

Final Power Rangers Trailer Sends Alpha 5 Into Battle

17 February 2017 11:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the March 24 release date rapidly approaching, Lionsgate has released a final trailer for Power Rangers with brand new footage, along with another TV spot. These new videos give fans a better look at the iconic Zordon, voiced by Bryan Cranston, along with a new glimpse at the villainous Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) and Goldar, plus a brief scene with Alpha 5 (Bill Hader). The Alpha 5 scene shows that, while he is certainly lacking in size, he's more than capable of taking care of himself, as he takes down an enemy while screaming "Power Rangers!" Alpha 5 could very well be a scene-stealing character in this immense ensemble when he makes his big screen return on March 24.

Lionsgate debuted this 60-second trailer and 30-second TV spot on YouTube, which also features some footage showing how strong these teenagers have become after finding the power coins. There is also a new scene where Rj Cyler's Billy Cranston, »
