Power Rangers Poster Reveals Saber-Tooth Tiger Dinozord

9 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Power Rangers reveals keep coming slowly, but surely, as Lionsgate and Saban give us our first real look at one of the new Dinozords courtesy of a poster that shows this big robotic beast in action. This appears to be the first of five incoming posters that will represent all of the Dinozords to be unleashed in the movie.

This particular ultra-powered Dinozord is the Saber-Tooth Tiger, which belongs to Trini, the Yellow Ranger. A few weeks ago, toy images hit the Internet that gave us a first look at these behemoths in plastic form. That was a less-than-ideal way to get a first look at these towering robots. And you have to agree, it looks a lot better in 'real-life'. Trini pilots the Sabre-Tooth Tiger Dinozord just as she did on the original TV series. The Yellow Ranger is played in the movie by Becky Gomez.

Rita Repulsa Flashes A Manic Grin In All-New Power Rangers Still

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Look away now, Rangers. Rita Repulsa has descended on Angel Grove ready to wreak havoc and judging by this new image pulled from the upcoming Power Rangers movie, Elizabeth Banks’ battle-ready witch is going to have some fun while doing so.

Unveiled via the film’s official Twitter page as part of the ‘#RepulsaTakesOver’ campaign, the pic above came tethered with a sinister warning: “Thought you saw the last of me!? Ignoramus, you thought wrong. I have glorious catastrophic plans for the holiday season.” For an alien sorceress hellbent on galactic domination, Rita Repulsa sure knows her way around social media.

As for Power Rangers itself, Lionsgate’s effects-heavy reboot has taken the core DNA of the hit ’90s phenomenon and slapped on a new lick of paint, a creative process that has resulted in radical new looks for both Alpha 5 (to be »

Rita Repulsa Is All Smiles In Yet Another Official Image From The Power Rangers Reboot

19 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

To call the concept art of Bill Hader's Alpha-5 horrifying would be an understatement, and while we've yet to see what Zordon looks like, another new image of Power Rangers' Rita Repulsa has found its way online today. As you can see, Elizabeth Banks is looking ready for action here, though some might argue that she pales in comparison to the version dreamed up for an earlier version of the movie. Another trailer for Power Rangers is expected to be released later this month, but we don't know exactly when. Power Rangers stars Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, Rj Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, and Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger.

Emma Stone on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

4 December 2016 7:26 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Saturday Night Live isn't just trying to figure out how to be funny in the wake of Donald Trump becoming this country's President-Elect, but also trying to figure out what kind of world it's actually satirizing. To say the show had blinders on about the election is both an overstatement and a wildly unfair accusation. After all, few could foresee last month’s election breaking the way it did, and so there's been a lot of introspection happening at SNL.

But that introspection has also incorporated some outward gazing as well, »

Eight Rom-Com Spoofs You Have to Watch Again (and Again)

2 December 2016 1:37 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Everyone loves curling up with a good love story, but every now and then it’s just as much fun to have a laugh at romance movies’ grandiose depictions of relationships.

Below, six times comedians played around with our favorite romance films — and made us love them even more.

The Notebook: Ryan Reynolds & Conan O’Brien

The actor and the late-night host took on everyone’s favorite tearjerker about everlasting love. They re-enacted Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdam’s iconic rainy kiss, and it was basically even more touching that the original.

Rita Repulsa concept art from Max Landis’ Power Rangers pitch revealed

2 December 2016 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While earlier this week fans were given a brand new look at Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa in next year’s Power Rangers movie, artist Matt Frank (via Cbr) just revealed a much different interpretation of the character in his concept art from a previous version of the project.

Back in 2013, when Power Rangers was still in development, Max Landis, writer of Chronicle and Victor Frankenstein, pitched his idea for the film to Lionsgate. The studio didn’t end up moving forward with his vision, but Landis did ask Frank to draw up some concept art, which he just unveiled on his Facebook page. See the sketch below…

On his work, Frank wrote, “Max Landis approached me back in 2013 to do some concept art for #PowerRangers when he was doing a script treatment. I had other obligations at the time and could only do a quick Rita, so I pulled from »

’21 Jump Street’ All-Female Spinoff to Be Written by Rodney Rothman

1 December 2016 4:53 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One “21 Jump Street” spinoff isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? Two “21 Jump Street” spinoffs. In addition to “Mib 23,” which will see a crossover between “Men in Black” and the comedy/action series whose first two films were led by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, Sony is also developing a female spinoff about two undercover cops.

Rodney Rothman, who wrote both “22 Jump Street” and “Mib 23,” will write the as-yet untitled spinoff; he may also direct. Hill and Tatum will appear in the “Men in Black” crossover, though there’s no word yet on whether they’ll also feature in this latest venture, which will follow the first film’s formula of having two police officers pose as high school students in order to solve what’s surely a most important case.

Jump Street Female Spin-Off Finds Its Director

1 December 2016 2:34 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures has tapped 22 Jump Street writer Rodney Rothman to write and direct the studio's currently untitled all-female spin-off of their Jump Street franchise. We first reported on this project back in April 2015, when Broad City writers Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs were brought on to write the screenplay. Now the studio has brought on Rodney Rothman to not only work on the script, but also make his feature directorial debut.

Deadline reports that Rodney Rothman also recently turned in a draft of another spin-off, which brings the Jump Street and Men in Black franchises together. Back in August, Jump Street star Jonah Hill said that the crossover was "impossible," stating that he doubts that movie will get made. However, today's report states that the Jump Street/Men in Black crossover is actually still in development. Insiders claim that there will also be male characters involved in this story, »

Alpha 5 concept art from the Power Rangers reboot is here to ruin your childhood

30 November 2016 11:45 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Everything we’ve seen from the Power Rangers reboot so far seems to have divided fans of the classic TV series. With the costumes in particular putting many off to the design of the Megazords (which were revealed via some toys). This evening some new concept art of Alpha 5 – who will be voiced by Bill Hader […]

Power Rangers Movie Offers First Look at Alpha's Drastic Makeover

30 November 2016 2:18 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The latest reveal from Lionsgate’s upcoming Power Rangers movie will likely elicit a few “Ay yi yi”s from longtime fans of the mighty morphin’ franchise.

RelatedPower Rangers Movie Shares New ‘Alien’ Costumes — Do You Approve?

By now, we’ve accepted that the reboot — hitting theaters on March 24, 2017 — is going to be a gritty departure from the bright, colorful version we watched on TV from 1993 to 1995. That much was clear from the Rangers’ new suits, Elizabeth Banks’ less-hilarious Rita Repulsa costume and, of course, the long-awaited (and super melodramatic) teaser trailer.

So we shouldn’t have been surprised »

Newswire: Alpha 5 rocks a crop top in new Power Rangers photos

30 November 2016 12:28 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The upcoming Power Rangers movie is already an adaptation of a series that a lot of fans associate with the ’90s, but the people behind the film’s slightly bizarre aesthetic aren’t stopping their nostalgic nods there. If some new photos are anything to go by, Power Rangers will also have some ’90s-inspired styling cues for us to enjoy as well.

Thanks to IGN, we have our very first look at Bill Hader’s Alpha 5, the whiny robot that helps Zordon (Bryan Cranston) support the Rangers. Unlike the original Alpha 5 from the TV show, who had a big lightning bolt on his plastic chest, this one is wearing a stylish crop top that highlights his robot belly. If we didn’t know any better, we’d say he had just leapt out of an old Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera video!

‘Power Rangers’ Reveals the New Bill Hader-Voiced Alpha 5

30 November 2016 10:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

A Power Rangers movie was always going to be a hard nut to crack on the creative side and a tough sell for a general audience. How do you even begin to update something as silly as this without spiraling into a realm of overly self-parody (which was the entire point of Joseph Kahn’s Power/Rangers short […]

‘Power Rangers’ Movie: First Look at Alpha 5 (Photo)

30 November 2016 8:27 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The “Power Rangers” movie is taking some liberties with the classic ’90s series, but the first look at concept art for Alpha 5 is straight up weird. The image, obtained by IGN, is definitely darker than the original Alpha, showing his film counterpart to be more organic with large tentacle-like eyes. Bill Hader will provide the voice of Alpha-5, who managed the command center for Zordon. Hader was the latest high-profile casting for the film, with Bryan Cranston playing Zordon, while Elizabeth Banks will play the intergalactic villainess Rita Repulsa.

Power Rangers Alpha 5 concept art released

30 November 2016 8:18 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The other day we got a new look at Rita Repulsa’s new look in the upcoming Power Rangers film and now IGN has revealed exclusive concept art of the Rangers’ robot ally, Alpha 5. In the concept art he has a more “modern and organic” look with a darker colour palette than he traditionally has before. Check out the artwork here…

Saturday Night Live veteran Bill Hader will be voicing Alpha 5 in the film while Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston will be the Rangers’ master Zordon. Here is a comparison of Alpha’s design from the original series.

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.

New Images for Alpha 5 and Rita Repulsa from the Power Rangers Movie

30 November 2016 7:39 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

More reveals for the upcoming Power Rangers Movie. And who would the rangers be without Alpha 5.

So the other day we got an image for Elizabeth Banks full on Rita with the staff. Now we’ve seen other pictures so I was underwhelmed or not over or under just kinda whelmed. That’s right, I watch Young Justice. But let’s take a look at that image and we’ll come back to the topic.

Now on to other things as a true reveal we finally see Alpha 5 in full robotic glory. It looks as though he’s staying true to the overall look of the alien technology but easily you look at this and know that’s Alpha 5. Bill Hader’s voice coming out of that thing guys, imagine that.

Power Rangers Movie First Look at New Alpha 5

30 November 2016 7:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

So far, fan reaction to the new Power Rangers movie has been mixed. Some love what they are seeing, and others aren't quite sure what to make of it just yet. While a trailer arrived this past October, none of the Power Rangers were seen in action. And we caught no glimpse of some of the more popular secondary characters. That all changes today with a first look at the new Alpha 5.

Yes, Alpha 5 has gotten a modern day reboot. He is no longer the goofy robot we remember from the mid-90s. IGN brings us this reveal in concept art. And it's always hard to tell how fans will ever react to this stuff.

In the Power Rangers movie, which arrives from Lionsgate to kick of the spring 2017 movie season, Zordon and the Power Rangers robot assistant Alpha 5 will have a more modern and organic feel. Gone is the »
