New look at Power Rangers non-spandex power suits

I think POWER RANGERS is going to surprise people. It seems to be making mostly all the right decisions when it comes to adapting something like this (play it straight, but allow yourself to have fun). The suits themselves exemplify that, with retaining what's iconic and fun about them (the dinosaur theme, the bright colors), while also being redesigned to be more sleek and modern.

Here's a new look at the suits, up close and personal:

While these posts don't reveal anything too outrageous, it's still cool to see the work and design that goes into these types of elaborate costumes. Even if the film itself is a bust, making the suits look more like alien armor than form-fitting spandex was the right move.

Another thing that's interesting, is how similar the texture and some of the design of Rita's costume is to the Power Rangers' costumes. That could be coincidence, but if rumors are true that she (and Zordon) were former Rangers, that'd make her the former Green Ranger and make me forgive the otherwise Poison Ivy looking get up (although it looked pretty good in the trailer). 

Either way, POWER RANGERS will be morphing into theaters March 24th, 2017

Extra Tidbit: While Trini was a girl in the American shot High School scenes, the Yellow Ranger from the Japanese sentai show was clearly a dude.

Can't unsee the belly button belt buckle

The belt buckle thing now looks like a weird belly button, which I wish I could unsee.

Suits look cool, but the movie looks like shit

Angsty teens ripped from that horrible Chronicle movie with all these powers OUTSIDE of their suits. It makes no sense. Why can't we have movies where the characters have FUN and aren't brooding assholes?? Everything is still trying to be The Dark Knight and its been almost 10 years.

The suits look fantastic for a modern update of the franchise for today's generation.
