"It's Morphin Time!"
Probably one of the cheesiest lines ever, yet, for some reason we all still love the Power Rangers and always are grubbing for a new movie for them. Well now, we have been answered! Power Rangers plot is nothing new, we've heard and seen it before with five seemingly ordinary teens coming into extraordinary powers to save the world from an alien invasion. Sounds familiar right? Well this time it seems like we are going to be seeing that story play out with revamped and somewhat badass versions of the Power Rangers.
This trailer gives us the first official and great look of the suits and I honestly could not be any happier with how they turned out. I think that they look touch, not plastic, and enough like the old suits that it feels nostalgic without it being silly. We see some of the larger scale fight scenes that will take place in the movie and although they looked pretty okay here I am a little worried that these action sequences might look a little bit like Jonathan Liebesman and Michael Bay's version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Another highlight of this trailer would have to be hearing Bryan Cranston's voice as Zordon in the wall of their... secret lair? I think that he is the absolute perfect casting for this role and I hope that they utilize his acting chops to their fullest potential.
The villain of this movie Rita Repulsa was given some more screen time for this trailer and honestly she put some of my previous reserves about her character to rest. I used to think she looked similar to Cara Delevingne's portrayal of Enchantress in Suicide Squad (I am sure you can understand why I had those reservations), but this time around she actually looked more menacing and seemed like she was going to be an excellent adversary for this teenagers.
This trailer had it's highlights and definitely helped me put some of my previous reservations to bed and I can honestly say now that I am slightly looking forward to this movie. I was never the biggest Power Rangers fan but I must say that I am a sucker for a good and badass reboot of something that was around when I was a child.
SO with all that said and done Power Rangers hits theaters March 24, 2017! What did you guys think about this new trailer, sound off in the comments section below and let us know what your excited about or worried about in this upcoming reboot.
