Power Rangers (2017)
« on: October 08, 2016, 09:47:05 am »
No thread for this yet?

Teaser dropped today.  A bit different than what I was expecting, but... kind of.  There's a Chronicle meets Breakfast Club feel to it.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that thread! But I think we'll be getting more news, so this is the proper place for that.

Wow, total 180 from the last trailer.


Digging the new command center, and I like the idea of Zordon being a wall, it looks like he can just project himself anywhere on that wall... pretty cool solution to the "head in a tube" problem from the show.

AND I can't help but notice that Bryan Cranston has facial appliances on, which I was totally expecting, I think he'll be the same alien species as Elizabeth Banks... now there's a rumor that she's the Green Ranger, and that the start of the flick will be her vs Bryan Cranston as the Red Ranger, and I think them being the same species makes that a little more likely.



Also digging the rock monster designs, two bodies stuck together.

The fighting on the beach?  Totally looks like the show in the right way, you know?

I'm still not nuts about the Zord designs... the animals look better in motion, but the big guy?  Too lanky, too messy, it looks like one unit and not a combination of things.

Alpha looks better in motion, and it's interesting to hear Bill Hader's voice come out of him.  Surprised that it's not given some elector-distortion.

I'll also say that I'm so used to Zack being black that I have to remind myself, "no, Zack is the asian guy this time!"

Oh, and apparently there's a new rumor floating about because of this moment:


People who can hear are saying that's Elizabeth Banks' voice as Trini's mom, suggesting that Rita possesses her body, which would be real interesting, as well as explain why/how Rita attacks Trini in bed in the last teaser.

The open secret of Power Rangers: the franchise is chok-a-blok with babes, to name a few: Rose McIver (iZombie), Anna Hutchinson (Spartacus), Cerina Vincent (Not Another Teen Movie), Amy Jo Johnson (Felicity), Ciara Hanna, Christina Masterson, Erin Cahill, and now Becky G, Naomi Scott and Elizabeth Banks.

Set visit.  So this interview has to be OLD.  At least half a year old.


and some B-Roll of the making of the film, including Bryan Cranston and Bill Hader





And an article about how the Fate of the Power Rangers rests on the new movie.  Basically describing how the show's been stuck in a rut for the last ten years (well, you could argue longer) since it's stopped taking creative chances and isn't expanding its' audience.

So part of this story I knew... we've all heard of the Japanese Spider-Man, and that Marvel dipped a toe into super sentai in Japan, but I had no idea that

Stan Lee tried to create "Power Rangers" a decade early

The more you know.

(I also didn't realize that the original Spider-Man cartoon only had 13 episodes.  But I do like that trying to bring the Rangers to the states was also the impetus to do those awesome 90s Spider-Man and X-Men series).
