Power Rangers poster teases reboot's cast
While Lionsgate is reportedly already considering up to seven more Power Rangers films for future release, the studio is slowly teasing audiences with bits of information from the first installment, including a new teaser poster for the upcoming reboot.
The poster features silhouettes of what looks to be the film’s leading cast against a starry backdrop, with a constellation in the shape of the franchise’s iconic lightning bolt logo framing them from behind. “Together we are more,” the tagline reads.
The upcoming film, a revival of the 23-year-old Fox Kids TV series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, tells the story of a group of five teenagers tasked with saving the planet from destructive alien invaders.
The film, directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac), has a cast that includes RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Blue Ranger Billy, pop star Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery (Family Tree) as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott (Lemonade Mouth) as Pink Ranger Kimberly, Elizabeth Banks as a nefarious, reimagined version of Rita Repulsa, and Bryan Cranston as Zordon.
Fans will have to wait a bit longer to experience morphin’ time once again, however, as Power Rangers isn’t slated to hit theaters until March 24, 2017.
