Production designer Andrew Menzies told EW, “Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.”

A "More Mature" audience. lmao. Power Rangers is a childrens property that has been so over-saturated with reboots and recasts that the property should be laid to rest at this point. :lol:

Elizabeth Banks will be Rita Repulsa and she looks like she just left a Mortal Kombat tournament. XD

My problems with this is they're shooting for a new, mature audience. Do they not realize this audience will be the one that grew up watching this when they were younger. In my opinion there's no right way to do this (like with SW) because you're going to have old fans whining about every little thing they change (Rita does not look good, she didn't look good to begin with but her old look is so much better). Plus this won't be Power Rangers without the original cast (which will be quite hard as the original yellow ranger is dead). 

I'll give it a shot depending on what the trailer looks like but this is honestly a bad idea.

Aside from the fact that the Yellow Power Ranger no longer morphs into a man this looks bad.... In a extreme way. They just over sexualized all the characters I preferred not to be over sexualized.

Though it's probably too late I'd rather have a (stoner) comedy movie revolving around Bulk, Skull, Rito Revulto, & Goldar.

I did watch the original power rangers series all those year ago, but never in the last 10 years have I ever thought "Damn, I wish I could get a new power rangers for my age group". Instead I wanted to see a grown up live action Voltron instead. I'm surprised Michael Bay isn't directing this. XD

My favorite portrayal of the Power Rangers ever was in one of my all time favorite cartoons Megas XLR:

The 'S-Force' showed up in 2 or 3 episodes. I miss this show so bad. I wish it'd have gotten more seasons. If any giant robot show need a live action movie adaption all these years later, it'd be Megas XLR. XD

Bryan Cranston, the man who sparked fear into the hearts of millions as Walter White in Breaking Bad, is about to play a floating head in the new Power Rangers movie.

Cranston confirmed his role as Zordon on Twitter earlier today. In the Power Rangers universe, Zordon acts as a mentor to the group of teen heroes and first appeared in the first season of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

I doubt they'll keep Zordon as a floating head in this movie, but if they do.. all I can think about is a floating heisenberg head selling meth to power rangers. XD

This trailer came out last month and I forgot all about it. This looks way better than that other Power Rangers movie. Sure its all CG'd to hell like Transformers, but it looks like a good reboot for a change.

You do know that you've now summoned the movie gods to call Michael Bay and give the idea to him.  XD


Yesterday was the deadline for all complaints!

Oh god I hope not. XD The new Voltron cartoon reboot on Netflix is pretty damn good tho, so I think we're safe from seeing a live action movie of it any time soon.

No, I wouldn't say that.  If it gets popular enough, Hollywood will notice and believe they can milk more money out of people via nostalga! ><

      It looks promising and a couple of the scenes look like they were taken right out of the game. Alicia Vikander looks like Lara Croft in that outfit, but shes a very small woman (height and muscle) in comparison to Lara Croft in the video game. I hope her physical performance is believable considering how many men she'll have to kill. To hell with the double guns tho. I'd rather see her using only the bow and climbing axe the entire movie.. and maybe an assault rifle. lol.

      I was under the impression that these movies have been getting filmed for about 3-4 years already.. and they'd start releasing a new Avatar movie once a year. But they're still casting roles!? Wow. At this rate I won't even expect Avatar 2 to come out in 2020. Also, I haven't seen this actor in much besides Fear the Walking Dead. While hes probably the best actor in that show (thats not saying much honestly), I don't see him doing well as a lead in a major movie franchise like this.

      This is noticeably a marvel made Spider-Man movie and looks far superior to the previous movies Fox has made.
