Well, we waited and waited. Lionsgate’s Power Rangers reboot has finally revealed its debut trailer and boy, oh boy, does it look like fun. The film’s trailer can be found on the official Facebook page, or in the tweet below. Power Rangers, from the trailer alone, gives off incredible Chronicle vibes, as well as featuring nods to high school dramas such as The Breakfast Club and Heathers. We firmly believed the trailer would drop after the film’s NYCC panel later today, but Saban and Lionsgate decided to treat fans with an early release.
Update: It appears the Lionsgate Youtube page has just posted the trailer for you to view in all its HD glory.
You can check out the trailer below:
So, what do you guys think? I am in love with this new take on the Power Rangers mythology. I think it is the perfect reboot for this franchise.
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary teens (Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin) 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 they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.
Power Rangers hits theatres everywhere on March 24, 2017.
