A new Power Rangers movie has been shooting, which has a bigger budget than previous attempts to the franchise on the big screen, and will be bringing a more cinematic feel, rather than just being a TV spin-off. The movie won’t be in cinemas until next year, but the makers are keen to show us that this won’t be the slightly cheesy Rangers we know from television.
That includes giving the suits a complete makeover. Gone is the spandex-type material and in are superhero inspired robotic-looking suits. They look pretty cool, but it’s certainly noticeable that while the men appear to have lost their genitals, the women have been given ample boob room – but that’s Hollywood for you.
The new pic above comes shortly after we got out first look at Elizabeth Banks as the new Rita Repulsa, who again looked very different from how she looked in the original series.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.’
