Power Rangers trailer drops, and it looks different

The official trailer to the Power Rangers movie is here, and it looks alright

If you were bored with your weekend and wanted to see something maybe a little unexpected, then you'll be glad to know we have the official trailer for the upcoming Power Rangers movie to cheer you up.



As you can see, it looks like a Transformers-like movie with a massive injection of teenage drama and angst... but director Dean Israelite explains his ideas behind Lionsgate's adaption of the TV series: "I grew up on Power Rangers in South Africa and what was important to me from the beginning was making a movie about growing up".


He continued: "I wanted to make this a grounded, character driven origin story that was always set to the backdrop of this adventure. Always at the center was making these characters real with real problems that people can find relatable. I wanted to remain true to the spirit of the franchise that I grew up on and loved. And I wanted really hard to reimagine it and reinvent it for a 2017 audience".


Israelite's vision of Power Rangers was a world where they were as true to the original TV series as possible, without trying to fake parts of it. We all know Zords are going to be a problem for the Power Rangers movie, but since they're entirely CG created, the cast and crew had to act the scenes involving Zorgs as authentic as possible - even though there's nothing there. Not much different to many of the movies of the last decade, really.
