First trailer for Saban's Power Rangers teases a promising romp

10.08.2016

The first trailer for Saban's POWER RANGERS has dropped and it's pretty legit. For one, it doesn't give you the whole movie in one trailer. Far from it, in fact. It's actually more of a teaser than a trailer and as a first look, an effective one at that. Directed by Dean Israelite (PROJECT ALMANAC) and starring Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger), RJ Cyler (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), Ludi Lin (Black Ranger), and Becky G. (Yellow Ranger), along with Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Bill Hader as Alpha 5, this flick looks full of promise. Check out the (teaser) trailer and let's talk some more about this.

"I've killed Rangers before..."

I mean, pretty cool, right? Yeah, I wanted to see how the action would shape up in comparison to the cheesiness of the many shows, but the set-up looks to be a straightforward and fairly serious in tone adaptation, which is pretty damn cool. I have no doubt that seeing them in full costume and kicking ass will be just as cool and love that I actually want to see more. Really, this is how every trailer should start out. Give us a set-up, establish the tone, tease some coolness, and save a shit-ton for later. As a mostly non-fan of the Power Rangers growing up (missed my age bracket), I have little stake in the characters, but with this teaser (and the posters) I'm ready for the Rangers.

You can go-go see the POWER RANGERS on March 24, 2017.

I will be watching this. That TV show the black character used to be on was absolutely horrible though.

The good thing is that this looks ways better than the old Power Rangers The Movie. The bad is that the story just seem to be a mashup of at least three different teen movies.

This looks like someone finally put the money behind the Power Rangers concept to make it actually good. It also looks like the first entry in a new YA novel series, but that's just because such is the world we live in. I think it shows promise.

Honestly, the teaser would have been better had we got to hear Zordons voice because as it stands, aside from seeing the title of the film at the end, you'd almost never know it was a Power Rangers film.

Well now I can't say I was expecting this. This does look WAY better than expected and is now on my radar for sure. This looks like a hell of a good romp and one time going all "super serious" was a good idea to freshen up the series from its corny cheesy beginnings.

It looks good, but I don't like the fact they have superpowers without the costumes. Teaser also make it seem like the costume will only show up near the end for the last fight.

Looks better than I thought it would have and I'm glad that the teenagers in the film came off likeable and that their banter and chemistry with one another was natural and likable as well.

And the money shot of them morphing was a nice touch too.

loved the SNES game.....

well this looks pretty legit, so far no cheese to be found! I know the tv show is geared toward kids, but that was the biggest thing that always kept me from watching the show was how cheesy it was.

I get it

I understand the negatives about how its like Chronicle mixed with The Breakfast Club, and agree. BUT, the source material i.e. the old tv show and the original movie are SO shitty and cheesy, this more serious tone looks more entertaining.

Im not saying the movie is going to be good, it might/could very well be dog shit, but it looks a hell of alot better than the old dog shit tv show and movie.

Greatest line from original "Remember what we learned? To all those who posses the great

Greatest line from original "Remember what we learned? To all those who posses the great power, all things are possible." Green ranger was the worse actor ever.

You got me. Wow I mean I always thought I was in Power Ranger denial, but just kept fighting it every day of my life.

I guess all it took was some random person on Joblo to help me reflect on the truth.

Thank you sooooo much for this realization. You are a true American hero.

This looks pretty good. I hope the fight choreography is as good as the trailer. Did they get Yuen Woo Ping? Cause that would be amazing. Wish Donnie Yen was the black ranger. Oh well.

Oh man I didn't think it would look THAT BAD

It's fucking Chronicle all over again. Why can't teens HAVE FUN and not be angst riddled like emo babies? Why do they have super powers???? This is just a mess. Rita Repulsa just looks stupid too.

Oh and the attractive girl being bullied and called ugly?? Bullshit. This is just really stupid, another franchise ruined because it wants to be The Dark Knight, dark and edgy. But it comes off as forced and boring.

I would be inclined to agree with you if the source material wasn't so absolutely shitty.
