The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are headed to the Middle Kingdom.
The Wrap reports that Lionsgate’s Power Rangers reboot is set to open in China with zero cuts on May 12, a week after the release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. This also puts the Dean Israelite-directed movie directly up against Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which arrives on the same day.
Last month, Power Rangers was approved for a theatrical release in China, following weeks of speculation that the film would not make its way to the country due to a character who questions her sexuality. State distributors China Film Group and Huaxia Distribution are handling the film’s release, with marketing by TIK Films.
The film stars Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks.
Power Rangers is out in U.S. theaters now. You can read our review of the film here.
