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.

Hollywood has been trying to make a Voltron live-action movie for more than a decade now, which makes me skeptical that it will happen. But the success of the Netflix animated series Voltron: Legendary Defender means that they are going to try to bring this big giant robot to the big screen once again. Hit the jump to learn more about this new live-action Voltron movie adaptation.

Today brought the first look at the latest attempt to bring Power Rangers to the big screen straight from New York Comic-Con, and this was even more of a tease than we were expecting. While the first teaser trailer gives us the origins of the teenage defenders of Angel Grove, who all feel like they have personalities lifted straight from The Breakfast Club, it features exactly zero footage of the titular heroes suited up in action.

This weekend, attendees at New York Comic-Con will be treated to the first footage from Power Rangers, the latest effort to bring the long-running sci-fi action TV series to the big screen. We’re hoping that the first teaser trailer for the movie will also be unveiled online this weekend, just like the first trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, but we’ll see what happens.
In the meantime, five new Power Rangers posters have debuted from NYCC. Each of them show off one of the five titular warriors tasked with protecting Earth from Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) and any giant monsters she may summon to Angel Grove, even if starting world domination somewhere else would prove to be more beneficial. Anyway, check out the new Power Rangers posters after the jump. Read More »
Next month brings another one of Nickelodeon’s attempts to cash in on the nostalgia that children of the ’90s have as they’re now taking care of children of their own. The Legends of the Hidden Temple movie takes all the elements of the kids’ game show and incorporates them into an adventure movie where three kids end up stuck in an ancient temple and must overcome various obstacles in order to escape alive.
A new Legends of the Hidden Temple trailer really pushes the adventure side of the movie, opting not to have any of the kids speak and letting the only dialogue come from the giant talking stone head known as Olmec (played by the original voice actor Dee Bradley Baker), delivering one of his signature lines from the show. You can watch it below if you wish. The choice is yours and yours alone. Read More »
