Sdcc: Power Rangers reboot will use original Dinozords and Alpha 5, Aye Yi Yi Yi!

22 July 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While a load of Power Rangers reboot props, costumes and action figures are being showcased at this year’s San Diego Comic Con (the 90s lycra suits have been swapped out for crystallised armour and helmets – see above), more exciting revelations have emerged from the director and cast’s interview with Nerdist (no link, unfortunately, as the original article has disappeared from their site).

Firstly, director Dean Israelite has confirmed the Dinozord vehicles from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television show will feature in the film. These five Dinozords – Tyrannosaurus, Pterodactyl, Triceratops, Mastodon and Sabretooth Tiger (the last two aren’t technically dinosaurs) – combine to become the Megazord below.

And when the Megazord comes out, stuff has gotten real.

Aka, The Third Act.

Also confirmed for the 2017 Power Rangers reboot is Alpha 5, the permanently stressed robot assistant of the team’s blue-headed alien mentor Zordon (Bryan Cranston) – famous for his exasperated catchphrase, »

Villain Photos: See Elizabeth Banks in 'Power Rangers' and Jude Law in 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword'

We're still in the middle of the summer movie season, but it's never too soon to speculate about next year's big releases. In that spirit, we have advance looks at two movies that tackle familiar subjects from fresh perspectives. As a further point of interest, the movies are both scheduled to open on the same date in 2017. First adapted for the U.S. market in 1993, Power Rangers draws from its Japanese inspiration to tell a story of young people who transform into superheroes. The movie stars Becky G., Naomi Scott, Ludi Lin, Rj Cyler and Dacre Montgomery as a new team of five teenage rangers. A new photo (above) via Entertainment Weekly showcases Trini (Becky G.), also known as the Yellow Ranger, as she battles the villainous Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). Repulsa...

Rita Gets Violent In New "Power Rangers" Photo

14 July 2016 5:08 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following the character posters released earlier this morning, a new photo has debuted from the upcoming "Power Rangers" reboot - this shot featuring Elizabeth Banks' villain, Rita Repulsa, as she attempts to take on the Yellow Ranger Trini played by Becky G.

Talking about her role with EW, Becky G says: "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. 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?'." Principal photography has wrapped on the film with additional filming to take place later this year ahead of an early 2017 release.

Rita Repulsa Vs. the Yellow Ranger in New Power Rangers Photo

14 July 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after Lionsgate and Saban announced they were collaborating on a big screen reboot of the iconic Power Rangers franchise, it was revealed that the studio would be seeking out mostly unknown talent for the leading cast. They would anchor the film with some bigger names in the villain and secondary roles. And that all came to fruition, with Elizabeth Banks taking on the iconic character of main baddie Rita Repulsa and Bryan Cranston becoming the new Zordon. Today, we have a new photo from the movie that shows Banks in all her Rita repulsiveness. And we get a few words from one of the newcomers tasked with taking over as these high school superheroes.

Becky G certainly has her fans. And amongst the hot young cast of this new version of Power Rangers, she is perhaps the best known of the bunch. Rebbeca Marie Gomez is an American singer, »

'Power Rangers' character names revealed in striking new posters

14 July 2016 3:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Did you love the Power Rangers television show from the '90s? Then you might just like the new Power Rangers movie a bit more now than you did before. Check out the new character posters to see why. We've already met the new cast from Power Rangers, raised an eyebrow to their intense Iron Man-like costumes (not to mention sexy Rita Repulsa), and freaked out when Bryan Cranston was added as Zordon, but now we know the Rangers' names. And they're very familiar. Yup, they're playing the same characters from the TV series. (Or simply stole all their names I guess...) Zack (#LudiLin) is the #BlackRanger. #PowerRangersMovie pic.twitter.com/587vHY1jKS — Power Rangers (@ThePowerRangers) July 14, 2016 Jason (#DacreMontgomery) is the #RedRanger. #PowerRangersMovie pic.twitter.com/prYv54ylaE — Power Rangers (@ThePowerRangers) July 14, 2016 Kimberly (#NaomiScott) is the #PinkRanger. #PowerRangersMovie pic.twitter.com/4xSfqhwqsb — Power Rangers (@ThePowerRangers) July 14, 2016 Billy (#RJCyler) is the #BlueRanger. »

Power Rangers Image Shows Rita Repulsa And The Yellow Ranger Up Close And Personal

14 July 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A new photo from the upcoming Power Rangers movie shows the gang’s main foe singling one of them out for some special treatment. The picture, released by Entertainment Weekly, depicts the villainous Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) stroking her gnarly talons down the face of the Yellow Ranger, Trini. She doesn’t look too happy about her predicament. But, as actress Becky Gomez went on to tell EW, that’s because Repulsa believes she’s susceptible:

“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,”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?'”

After the somewhat mixed reception to the drastic makeover Repulsa has been given, folks are slowly warming to the new iteration. A large »
