Last week, we finally got a proper look at the new Power Rangers movie coming to theaters in a couple months in the form of a full trailer. New footage included all of the teenagers with attitude in action, in their power suits, and in their Zords. It certainly has a new tone and style for the property that became popular back in the 1990s, feeling right in line with something like the Transformers franchise.
It remains to be seen whether adults who were once fans of the show will seek out this movie for the sake of nostalgia, or if they’ll only be going because their kids are dragging them to it. In the meantime, those who grew up loving the first iteration of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be pleased to see a nicely done mash-up that takes footage from both of the Power Rangers trailers, and brings it together in the style of the opening credits of the original show.

The more we see TV shows like Baywatch and CHIPs turned into movies, the more realization sets in that the success of 21 Jump Street as a quality comedy was a small miracle.
While Baywatch doesn’t look bad, it just seems to be trying too hard to have the same blend of R-rated comedy and action that directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller delivered wonderfully with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. And now we have the first CHIPs trailer, revealing Dax Shepard (who also directs the comedy) and Michael Peña as unlikely partners in the California Highway Patrol. And if Baywatch is trying to be 21 Jump Street, than CHIPs is trying even harder to be its cool PG-13 cousin.

Despite the existence of a longer teaser trailer, we still haven’t seen any footage from the new Power Rangers movie that shows the titular heroes suited up in their colored gear. Furthermore, the only villain we’ve seen on-screen is Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, but only taunting one of the Rangers as they lie in bed. In fact, the best glimpses that we’ve gotten of the villains have come in the form of the upcoming toys from the movie, and another has just been revealed.
In the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series, Rita Repulsa consistently sent a batch of clay being known as Putty Patrollers to cause trouble for our heroes. They were pretty stupid, but gave just enough trouble to the multi-colored team to keep them busy for a little while. Now we have confirmation that they’ll be appearing in the movie, but they’ve been given a bit of a makeover.

Even though we got quite a lengthy teaser trailer for the latest big screen iteration of Power Rangers, we still haven’t seen the titular teenage superheroes in action on screen yet. So far only still images of the Power Rangers in their signature suits have been provided online, and we’ve seen even less of their massive robot companions known as Zords, but now we get a somewhat better glimpse at the latter.
A new Power Rangers poster teases the arrival of the Zords, however, they manage to show even less than the previous teaser posters revealed with each of the Rangers standing on their own vehicles. In addition, we’ve got a new photo of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. Read More »

Way back in the spring of this year, we got our first look at Elizabeth Banks as the villain Rita Repulsa in the latest big screen adaptation of Power Rangers. She looks drastically different than she did in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, looking less like a medieval witch and more like an alien vixen from the Species franchise.
Now some new photos of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa provides another glimpse at the character, this time showing us one trait that took influence from her look in the 1990s TV series. In addition, Rita Repulsa took over the official Power Rangers Twitter yesterday during Cyber Monday to make some truly weird product endorsements.

Right now The Walking Dead is in the middle of its seventh season, and it’s perhaps the most upsetting season for fans yet. The arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan is really shaking up every aspect of the show, and some fans haven’t been able to handle it. That’s not stopping the show from being just as popular, and the passion of fans just might result in the title heading to the big screen.
The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple was recently asked about the possibility of a movie ever coming to fruition, and he revealed that it’s a topic that has been discussed occasionally. But does that mean the idea has potential? Find out what he had to say about the jump, and also get the remaining episode titles and synopses for the rest of the new episodes this year, but beware of some spoilers. Read More »

It remains to be seen if the nostalgia will bring the now grown up children of the 1990s and early 2000s into theaters to see the new Power Rangers movie coming next spring, or if Lionsgate is banking on the younger, newer fans of the various television incarnations to drag their parents to theaters. Either way, this movie is coming, and it’s offering a whole new spin on the long-running property. Now we get a sneak peek at one of the signature pieces of Power Rangers.
Thanks to the official Power Rangers Twitter account, we get a glimpse of the new Megazord that will be controlled by our five teenage superheroes, and formed by their individual Zords that we already caught a glimpse of in some character posters.
