The stars of the beloved original series posed in their 'morphin' time' stances at the premiere of the new 'Power Rangers' on Wednesday.
At the time of writing, it’s only one month until those 1990s kids TV icons the Power Rangers return to the big screen for the first time in twenty years – and, based on the trailers and promotional material, we can anticipate something rather different in tone to what went before. It remains to be seen just how interested today’s audience will be in ‘Power Rangers,’ but given the box office dominance of superhero movies in the past decade, in many ways it’s surprising it took this long for a new take on the alien-fighting martial arts masters to reach cinemas. A US-based production from Japanese producer Haim Saban and his Saban Entertainment company, ‘MMPR’ starred a young, fresh-faced cast of all-American actors for the regular day clothes sequences – but when they costumes came on and the monsters came out, the bulk of the footage was recycled from existing Japanese TV action series ‘Super Sentai,’ which began all the way back in 1975.
Prepare for your first glimpse of the mighty Zords from the upcoming ‘Power Rangers’ – although, in-keeping with most of the publicity material to date, it’s a bit of teaser image.
A recurring element of all the various incarnations of ‘Power Rangers’ – beginning with the 1990s TV series ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,’ on which the upcoming movie is modelled – is that, on top of being superhuman martial arts masters, the Rangers also pilot individual robot dinosaurs named Zords.
Yes, the Justice League and the Power Rangers are set to cross over in a new six issue mini-series to be co-published by DC Comics and BOOM! Studios. It appears the Power Rangers in question will be those of the 1990s TV series, as opposed to the new incarnations from the upcoming movie, as these are the characters used in the existing ‘Power Rangers’ comics from BOOM! Studios.
Sorry folks - the original ‘Power Rangers’ won’t be back. During an interview with Audibly Exquisite Podcast, Walter Jones - who played the original black ranger, Zack - revealed that the ‘Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers’ won’t get a cameo in the new movie. The original ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ were played by Austin St. John, Thuy Trang, Walter Jones), Amy Jo Johnson, and David Yost… with Jason David Frank later joining the team as the Green Ranger.
It’s not long until we see the latest reboot of the ‘Power Rangers’ hit cinemas, so here’s our first look at the poster released for the sci-fi adventure. Interestingly, the movie wrapped last month but with Cranston’s role only just announced, it seems his scenes will be added in (which should be fairly easy considering he’ll essentially be a CGI-styled face of Zordon).
According to Variety, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer is rather confident about the upcoming ‘Power Rangers’ movie… and envisions up to seven more films in the series. “We are really, really excited about the ‘Power Rangers’ movie,” he said during a conference call with analysts. Feltheimer revealed that their confidence in the upcoming ‘Power Rangers’ movie was ignited by the positive reaction to the recently revealed costumes, which they believe to be evidence of audience interest.
Entertainment Weekly just premiered the first group photograph of the core quintet from the new ‘Power Rangers’ movie, currently in production. While ‘Power Rangers’ has never left the small screen, enduring in a long series of different iterations over the past two decades, this new movie from Lionsgate is directly modeled on the original line-up of first series ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,’ introduced in 1993. A popular sensation, ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ spawned a marketing empire, two theatrically released feature films in the mid-1990s, and no less than 21 more ‘Power Rangers’ TV shows to date.
