Power Rangers TV Spot Hints at Rita Repulsa's Past Life as a Ranger

17 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate has released three new TV spots for the highly-anticipated Power Rangers movie, which arrives days after a new Power Rangers international trailer. One of these new TV spots shows how some of the Rangers met during detention, with Rj Cyler's Billy Cranston, a.k.a. The Blue Ranger, revealing he was sent to detention for "blowing up his lunchbox," which was apparently quite a bigger explosion than planned. We also see Dacre Montgomery's Red Ranger activating his sword while leaping into battle, along with more footage of Goldar and the Zords.

Perhaps the biggest reveal is the spot featuring Rita Repulsa. She claims to have killed Rangers before. But in an even bigger twist, she says she was once like them, full of hope. This line has many speculating that she actually is the former Green Ranger, which has long been speculated. Especially since she is confirmed »

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. Rita Repulsa's mission on Earth, after thousands upon thousands of years in captivity, »

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.

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, »

‘Power Rangers': Why Bryan Cranston Agreed to Star as Zordon

14 January 2017 11:52 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Bryan Cranston’s motivation for playing the mentor role of Zordon in the upcoming “Power Rangers” film is quiet simple: the creator of the popular series reached out to him. “Haim Saban called,” Cranston told IGN. “I know Haim and 35 years ago I was doing voice overs when I was first starting out and I would do it when they were dubbing into English and they had to change everything.” Cranston, however, admits he wasn’t on board with being in the film at first… until, that is, he read the script. His mind was instantly changed. Also Read: ' »

Univision Gets FCC Ok on Foreign Ownership Issue Ahead of Trump Transition

4 January 2017 7:26 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Univision Communications has been given a favorable ruling from the FCC on a foreign ownership question involving its partner Grupo Televisa. The decision is an important win for Univision that will make it easier for the Spanish-language media giant to pursue its long-delayed initial public offering.

The FCC granted Univision’s request for a waiver of the commission’s foreign ownership rule, which bars non-u.S. individuals and entities from holding more than a 25% interest in a company that owns broadcast TV stations.

The FCC ruling issued Tuesday allows Mexico’s Televisa and its affiliates to own up to 49% of the equity in Univision and up to 40% of the voting shares. Univision said the decision would allow for greater investment in the company by Televisa and through a possible Ipo, a move that the commission determined was in the public interest. Televisa already owns 10% of Univision’s equity and 14.4% of voting shares.
