Watch: Katee Sackhoff, James Van Der Beek Kick Ass in ‘Power Rangers’ Fan Film

24 February 2015 4:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Power Rangers are all grown up and the future looks … dark.

Film producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn teamed up to created a bootlegged, revisionist future version of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” in 14 minute short film called “Power/Rangers.” The fan film imagines that the Rangers have matured past their teenage years, and now live in a much bleaker world.

The video stars “Battlestar Galactica” actress Katee Sackhoff as Pink Ranger Kimberly (a role originated by Amy Jo Johnson in the TV series), and “Dawson’s Creek” headliner James Van Der Beek as disgruntled former Red Ranger Rocky (played by Steve Cardenas on the show).

In the short, Rocky has captured Kimberly, and is interrogating her, trying to figure out the location of Green Ranger Tommy who is apparently the only other Ranger still alive. The film features blood, bad language and a killer twist.

Power Rangers Goes Gritty With James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff

24 February 2015 12:09 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

This isn't the Power Rangers you grew up with. Dawson's Creek veteran James Van Der Beek and Battlestar Galactica and Longmire fan-favorite Katee Sackhoff got their morphing time on in a 14-minute gritty flick—seriously, there's lots of blood, naked women and stuff you definitely wouldn't see on Saturday morning—from director Joseph Kahn. His other credits include Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" music video, Torque and several other of your favorite music videos. The film comes with this disclaimer: "Power/Rangers: Deboot of the Power Rangers. My take on the Fan Film. Not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition. This is a bootleg »

Power Rangers 'Bootleg' Movie Stars James Van Der Beek, Is Awesome

24 February 2015 12:05 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Power Rangers fans, prepare to have your collective childhood morphed.

A new (and highly Nsfw) 14-minute film, hailing from producer Adi Shankar (A Walk Among the Tombstones) and music-video director Joseph Khan, and co-starring James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), offers a glimpse of what a full-fledged, gritty Power Rangers movie would be like — and it’s pretty perfect.

Without giving too much away, the film (simply titled Power/Rangers) likens the multi-colored protectors to child soldiers, recruited to fight in an intergalactic war they have no business being in, and reveals the grim »

This Is the Most Insane, Nsfw Reboot of 'Power Rangers' Ever (and It Stars James Van Der Beek!)

24 February 2015 11:04 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Dawson isn’t by the creek anymore.

Here’s the “dark and gritty” Power Rangers reboot you never knew you wanted until now: Director Joseph Kahn (the man behind Taylor Swift’s Blank Space music video, amongst others) created a 14-minute “fan film” starring James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff from Battlestar Galactica as the Pink Power Range (a.k.a. the best Power Ranger).

“The dark and gritty reboot thing is such a cliché that the intention was not only to make it dark and gritty but make it even darker and grittier than you could possibly imagine,” Kahn told HitFix in an interview. “Hence the brains, the blood and the violence and the sex."

Watch: The original Pink Power Ranger sings in the streets in costume!

The short finds Kimberly (Sackhoff) being questioned by turncoat Red Ranger, Rocky (Van Der Beek) about the untimely -- and very, very violent »

R-Rated ‘Power/Rangers’ with Katee Sackhoff & James Van Der Beek takes ‘fan film’ to a new level

24 February 2015 10:09 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Updated: Hollywood’s habit of rebooting campy old properties into “dark” and “gritty”, Nolan-esque movies has grown tiring for a long time. No material is sacred, and no material is too ridiculous to be unironically rehashed.

One of the lesser titles on that long list of remakes are the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, a horribly silly ’90s staple that by 2016 when the official Lionsgate movie is released will be 20 years removed from when the original show went off air.

Joseph Kahn’s short film Power/Rangers isn’t that.

Starring Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) in Kahn’s “fan film”, one that doesn’t “reboot” the old property but extends its story threads to their natural, grim and bloody conclusion, Power/Rangers is an intense and dense fan story that takes fan filmmaking to a new level.

Emily S. Whitten: The Minds of Philip K. Dick

24 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Before I get started on this week’s musings, here are a couple of housekeeping items:

1) Have I mentioned lately how great the other writers here at ComicMix are? It’s probably been awhile, so let me take a quick minute to do so (again). If you somehow found ComicMix via me and primarily read my column here on the site, a) Cool, thanks! and b) I highly recommend you give the other folks here a try. Even in just reading through the last few days of columns, from Mindy Newell’s thoughts on Battlestar Galactica to Marc Alan Fishman’s discussion  of guarding one’s creative integrity versus going for a payday and wider success, to Molly Jackson’s rejoicing over the awesomeness that is Agent Carter, I am reminded of how quality the folks who write for this site are, and how lucky I am to be amongst them. »

The Power Rangers Go R-Rated In New Short Film

24 February 2015 9:43 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers are getting the big screen treatment from Lionsgate next year, and while we know nothing about it at this stage, we can be sure it will be nothing like this dark, gritty, and frankly amazing short film from director Joesph Khan (Dentention, Torque) and producer Adi Shankar (Dredd). Starring James Van Der Beek and Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackoff, Power/Rangers is the next in the "Bootleg Films" series,  which includes The Punisher: Dirty Laundry, where Thomas Jane put on the skull t-shirt again, and the unofficial animated Dredd spin-off, Superfiend. A pretty grim take on the beloved kids t.v.show, the short was born from Shankar's realistation (as he explains in an accompanying video, that has to be seen for Shankar ripping into Orlando Bloom alone) that the Power Rangers were basically child soldiers who were bound to end up with Post Traumatic »

Joseph Kahn's Power/Rangers is a Brutal Cyberpunk Take on a "Silly" Kids Show

24 February 2015 8:59 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Adi Shankar continues to be one of my favourite producers. Both The Grey and Dredd were awesome films, he recently hired Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett to write and direct an adaptation of I Saw the Devil and today, he released a kick ass, dystopian re-imaging of the hit kid's show, Power Rangers.

The short was directed by Jospeh Kahn (Detention) who was once tapped to direct the long in development Neuromance, so I'm not surprised to see a ton of Cyberpunk thrown in here including audio nods to Blade Runner.

Power/Rangers stars James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica).

Enjoy!

James Van Der Beek Stars As ‘Power Rangers’ Gets Dark

24 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In his Bootleg Universe, producer Adi Shankar re-imagines pop culture characters as he sees fit. For his latest work, Shankar has teamed with director Joseph Kahn for Power/Rangers, an extremely dark short film that imagines its titular characters as messed-up adults.

Power/Rangers stars James Van Der Beek as Rocky, one of the Red Rangers from the original 90s version of Power Rangers. In the short film's timeline, Rocky has turned away from his former colleagues and is instead searching for Tommy (the Green Ranger) during a futuristic war. In order to learn about the Green Ranger's whereabouts, Rocky interrogates Pink Ranger Kimberly, played by Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff.

There's a certain level of silliness to this whole endeavor, but in creating an ultra-gritty version of Power Rangers, Shankar is adding a realistic conclusion to an otherwise fantastical TV series. In a separate video, Shankar explains how messed »

Lionsgate is hard at work making a big screen adaptation of “Power Rangers,” but producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn have already finished a new vision of the popular children’s TV show that launched in the 1990s. “Power/Rangers,” Shankar’s fourth “Bootleg Universe” project, stars James Van Der Beek (“Dawson’s Creek”) and Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”) as former rangers at odds in a bleak future controlled by the machines.

The Future of Pop Culture, According to Parks and Recreation

23 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For its final season, Parks and Recreation has left us with a wonderful gift: a glimpse into the future. But the show’s Battlestar Galactica–inspired flash-forward hasn’t just been a way to advance the lives of Pawnee’s favorite residents (and avoid TV baby clichés). Sure, Andy has his own show, Ben’s running for mayor, and Apple/Facebook/Google hybrid Gryzzl data-mines your online presence so it can send you pictures of the Supreme Court justices sipping the Friends milkshake. Otherwise, our old pals from the Pawnee Parks and Rec Department are pretty much the same. It's the future of pop culture that Michael Schur and Co. have had a lot of fun skewering. So, in honor of the show’s series finale on Tuesday, let’s take a trip to 2017, where 20-year-old billionaire bros ride iPad skateboards and people still say "normcore."TV & Film There’s »

Mindy Newell: Said The Joker To The Thief

23 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

“There are many here among us / Who feel that life is but a joke / But you and I we’ve been through that / And this is not our fate.” • Bob Dylan, All Along the Watchtower, 1967

“What’s it all about, Alfie?” • Burt Bacharach and Hal David

I’m writing this while listening to the soundtrack of the revival of South Pacific, which played at Lincoln Center here in NYC in 2008 and won eight Tony awards. It starred Kelli O’Hara as Nellie Forbush, Paulo Szot as Emile de Beque, and Matthew Morrison (Will Schuster on Glee) as Lt. Joseph Cable. The show, written by Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, and Joshua Logan, opened on Broadway in 1949, and is based on James Michener’s series of short stories about the Pacific theatre, Tales of the South Pacific, which was published in 1947, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1948.

Justified, Ep. 6.04: “The Trash and the Snake” rewards series-long viewers

11 February 2015 9:36 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justified, Season 6, Episode 4: “The Trash and the Snake”

Written by Chris Provenzano and Ingrid Escajeda

Directed by Adam Arkin

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX

When it comes to planned-in-advance TV endings, in general, you can do it straight, or you can do it serpentine. Do it straight (Breaking Bad, The Wire) and you guarantee a high degree of fan contentedness, though usually at the cost of spontaneity. Do it serpentine (Lost, Battlestar Galactica, The Sopranos) and you run the risk of pissing off a large percentage of the fanbase, though you’ll have the side-benefit of being debated into eternity. On occasion, a series finds a way to split the difference and reaps incredible rewards. Justified seems destined to opt for the former route. While it’s supplied some artful twists and surprise developments in the past, it’s never been a series built on narrative trickery or hifalutin thematic development. »

‘Legenderry: Red Sonja #1′ is a sassy, swashbuckling steampunk mystery

10 February 2015 9:02 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Legenderry: Red Sonja #1

Written by Marc Andreyko

Art by Aneke

Colors by Impacto Studios

Published by Dynamite

On a surface level, it doesn’t seem that the sword and sorcery adventures of Red Sonja could fit in a Victorian steampunk story. However, in Legenderry: Red Sonja #1, writer Marc Andreyko and artist Aneke combine witty dialogue (and voiceovers), plenty of action, and hook readers in with a mystery/conspiracy plotline along with an equally mysterious foil for Red Sonja. Andreyko may lay this doubling on a little too thickly with the hooded woman’s inner monologue being the inverse of Sonja, but she propels the plot forward and will play a huge role in the miniseries as a whole. Aneke has a good command over space and pacing and uses jagged panels during the fight scenes to make them seem especially brutal. She even makes Red Sonja’s chainmail bikini sometimes »
