The New Power Rangers Have Arrived!
You Know What Time it is!
By Sam Burns
Entertainment Weekly have revealed our first first look at the rebooted Power Rangers in all their colour coordinated glory! The new suits look to be a mixture of light weight armour and flexible fabric, the helmets are bang on traditional and overall this is a very modern take on the classic heroes. EW also had the following quotes from the cast and crew on the movie:
“It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume,” production designer Andrew Menzies claims. “Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans."
Even the Yellow Ranger herself is impressed “It’s the coolest costume ever,” Becky G says. “I’m gonna wear it for Halloween for, like, five years.
The 90's spandex is well and truly a thing of the past and this reveal comes a week after we got the first shot of Elizabeth Banks as villain Rita Repulsa. Slowly this reboot is taking shape and we are still holding out hope that the movie can reinvent these heroes for a new generation of fans in a positive way.
The Power Rangers movie is set for release March 24th 2017, here's our impressions of the film after the initial anouncement.
