Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Box Set

There are countless iterations of the Power Rangers that kids have been obsessed with over the years, but for all the kids who grew up in the early 1990s, there’s only one definitive version of the teenage defenders of Earth: the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

In addition, it comes with a slew of bonus content and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie with a brand new retrospective featurette with some of the original cast and crew. Read More »

Power Rangers Hasbro

Hasbro, the toy company that’s been making movies based on their toys in Hollywood for a decade now, has just acquired a group of mighty morphin’ teens that should give the company a big boost. A new report says that Hasbro has acquired the entire Power Rangers brand (along with a few lesser-known properties) for $522 million. That should translate into a whole bunch of new toy sales, but for our purposes, the biggest implication of this Power Rangers Hasbro deal is that the alien-fighting teen heroes will be almost certainly be joining the Hasbro Cinematic Universe.

Power Rangers Honest Trailer

Lionsgate made their attempt at bringing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back to the big screen earlier this year, and now that the movie is available on home video, Screen Junkies has taken some cracks at the teenage superhero team with a new Honest Trailer.

Power Rangers took quite the serious approach to the goofy TV series that was imported from Japan and adapted for American audiences in the 1990s, and Honest Trailers wastes no time pointing out how this movie spends 90 minutes on having the titular heroes bond and train, only to conclude with a 30-minute big budget version of the TV series. Should we really be surprised though?

power rangers sequel

Fans loved Power Rangers. Everyone else, not so much.

Although for a while it seemed as if fan enthusiasm could will a Power Rangers sequel into existence, that didn’t seem to be the case after the abysmal international box office numbers came in for the silver screen reboot of the kitschy ’90s TV series. But there may still be hope for a sequel after all thanks to one factor moviegoers may have forgotten about: toys.

Power Rangers TV Spots

Lionsgate had big plans for the Power Rangers series. In the lead-up to the first film’s release, CEO Jon Feltheimer teased four (or five or six) sequels. The message was clear: they were on board for the long run and the glossy revival of the nostalgic favorite would be one of their next big franchises. After all, something has to fill that Hunger Games-shaped hole in their line-up.

And while Power Rangers got off to a strong start at the domestic box office, it never really took off in the way Lionsgate wanted. Now, it’s starting to look like international numbers will seal the fate of Power Rangers 2 (and Power Rangers 3 and Power Rangers 4 and…).

original power rangers actors

’90s kids had a lot of expectations going into Power Rangers, the big-budget movie reboot of the weird and kitschy American sentai show. We wanted to live their ass-kicking superhero lives (I predictably was a Pink Ranger wannabe), and the anticipation was high for it the movie to measure up to the beloved childhood series.

But for the actors who actually lived the Ranger Life, expectations were even higher. And they weren’t exactly met.
