First Teaser Trailer for 'Power Rangers' About Five High School Teens
"I'm not the same…" Lionsgate has revealed the first full-length teaser trailer for the new live-action Power Rangers movie, from the director of Project Almanac. They're bringing back the classic colored superkids for an epic sci-fi movie and it looks pretty cool at first glance. The cast is lead by: Naomi Scott as The Pink Ranger, Becky G. as The Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as The Black Ranger, RJ Cyler as The Blue Ranger, and Dacre Montgomery as The Red Ranger. This also features Bryan Cranston as Zordon, Bill Hader as the voice of Alpha 5, Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, as well as David Denman, Sarah Grey, Emily Maddison, and Caroline Cave. This teaser ends right when it's getting good (revealing their outfits), but so far I'm admittedly intrigued. This trailer also features the song "I Walk The Line" by Halsey. Take a look.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Dean Israelite's Power Rangers movie, direct from YouTube:
A group of high-school kids (played by Naomi Scott, Becky G., Ludi Lin, RJ Cyler, Dacre Montgomery), who are infused with unique superpowers, must harness their abilities in order to save the world from being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. Saban's Power Rangers is directed by South African filmmaker Dean Israelite, who previously directed Project Almanac, but got his start as an assistant to director Jonathan Liebesman. The screenplay is written by John Gatins & Ashley Miller. Based on the TV series "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" created by Haim Saban & Shuki Levy in 1993. Lionsgate will release the Power Rangers movie in theaters worldwide starting March 24th, 2017 next year. Stay tuned for updates. Who's excited for this?

I think the tone is great. The "teaser" is a little long to be a teaser. Reminds me of Chronicle, but with attitude 😛

Well I'm a 31 year old kid so this definitely for me!

I didn't say I won't watch it. I just don't want to say wrong things. Silly moods, at least when it comes down to myself, are so easy to indulge in my life ...

I didn't like the trailer. But a March release is pretty confident. And the cast rounded out nicely.

A school for misfits and delinquents? Why can't they have attitude and not be trouble makers?

Not that thrilled about this honestly. Can't say I'm surprised by it.

Not bad at all. I expected tons of cheese enough to make billion pizzas, but the trailer made me want to watch it.

They had me until 1:42...that fighting stance si soooo cheesy (even though it's iconic to the old power rangers)

Someone pointed out that the teen chemistry and starting story looks very inspired by the Breakfast Club and it totally makes sense. Looks interesting. Definitely keen to see what other footage they release before the movie release but so far this looks pretty good.

So the new Power Rangers is basically a Breakfast Club/Chronicle ripoff with a dash of Power Rangers. I'll probably watch those instead...
