It looks like the casting odds were ever in her favor as the Power Rangers movie locks down Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, The LEGO Movie) to play Rita Repulsa. Banks tweeted the announcement earlier today and already shows signs of getting into character. While she was always colorful and proper as Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games, Rita Repulsa will require Banks to really let loose. (more…)

She joins Red Ranger Dacre Montogomery, Pink Ranger Naomi Scott, Black Ranger Ludi Lin, and Blue Ranger RJ Cyler in director Dean Israelite‘s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Reboot.

The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Now that I have your attention, we’ve got casting news for the big screen version of Power Rangers, which is coming to theaters in the Summer of 2017. You may have heard that Naomi Scott has already been cast as the Pink Ranger, clearly the key role if you’re putting together any Power Rangers team, but who will lead the Rangers, who will take up the mantle of the Red Ranger and fill the big white boots of such acting legends as Austin St. John and Jason Lee Scott? Well, you’ve never heard of him, but the new Red Ranger is Dacre Montgomery. (more…)

Unless you’re Amish, live in a cave without WiFi, or were lost at sea the last couple of days, you might have an acceptable reason for not watching the Power Rangers fan film Power/Ranger that swept the Internet earlier this week. The darker, highly polished, and much more mature look at the Power Rangers had many folks clamoring for more. Of course everyone wanted to know what the original Power Rangers thought about the fan film, and three have made comments or posts. More importantly, Saban, holder of the Power Ranger rights have taken a dim view of this particular Power Rangers fan film and turned all their legal might toward removing the film first from Vimeo (The NSFW boobie version), and then, (The totally safe for anywhere version) from YouTube. What might this mean for Fan film’s in general? (more…)

This is not your father’s Power Rangers movie. All the goofy, brightly colored costumes, and rubber monsters are gone. Blasted away by this dirty, gritty, re-imagining of one of our childhood favorites. I’m not really a fan of the gritty reboot-type works that Hollywood seems infatuated with these days. Not everything needs to be darker, hell some humor every now and then has a place in film. So I found myself surprised that my anti-gritty-re-imagining radar wasn’t flashing and making that weird repeating klaxon noise in my head as I watched this fan film by Joseph Kahn. Throw in Katee Sackhoff and James Van Der Beek and you’ve got my full attention. (more…)

The Power Rangers reboot might have to change its theme song lyrics from GO-GO Power Rangers to Search-Search Power Rangers (For a new director), as word around the Internet watercooler has director Roberto Orci bowing out of the big screen reboot of Saban and Linosgate’s live action Power Rangers reboot. Why’s he dropping out and who might take his place? (more…)

Go Go Power Rangers!  This is the rally cry of fans that fell in love with Saban’s television series about a group of teenagers who could “morph” into the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, thanks to some alien technology, and piloted Voltron-like Jaegers back in the early 90’s.  Just like pretty much everything else that invokes a bit of nostalgia, it was recently announced that MMPR would be getting a big screen reboot.  Well, fans now know when they will be able to see their favorite Rangers back on the silver screen.

Funny story. Remember last week when it was announced that Star Trek 3 director Roberto Orci was hired to help shepherd the new Power Rangers movie to the big screen with the assistance of X-Men: First Class screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz? Well, Orci’s now saying that when this new Power Rangers flick arrives on the big screen, it will have a very important ingredient that will lead to universal success: continuity. “It’s got a continuity within the world,” says Orci. “I can’t tell you what, but it does have a continuity.” Which leads everyone who’s ever watched the series to say, “Power Rangers had continuity?” (more…)
