After a mediocre box office performance, the Power Rangers seemed to have found new life on home video. Lionsgate’s Power Rangers topped the home video sales in their first week of release. This is an impressive feat considering it was up against Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast.
According to HomeMedia Magazine, Power Rangers topped the sales charts over the weekend. Not only did it win in sales, but it also beat out Logan in rentals, something that hasn’t been done since Logan’s release. Power Rangers only made $85 million at the domestic box office, but hopefully, it has found its audience that will support a sequel.
Lionsgate had big plans for the franchise, believing that they could have multiple sequels. We don’t know if this will have any effect on if a sequel gets made. However, it does give us a glimmer of hope.
The film stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott (Red Ranger), RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott as Kimberly Hart (Pink Ranger), Becky G as Trini Kwan (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor (Black Ranger), Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, Bill Hader as Alpha 5, and Bryan Cranston as Zordon. Here’s the official synopsis:
Five ordinary teens 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 is available now on Digital HD, Blu-Ray and DVD now. You can check out our review for the film here.
