So.. I was just going through my blog site and i realized.. “Holy Shit! I havent said shit about the Upcoming Power Rangers movie!?”
So here goes nothing..
A Power Rangers Movie is on the way! Scheduled for a early 2017 realease. Its the first time since.. 1994-95 that the Rangers will be appearing on the big screen.
(When it was first announced, i wasnt hyped, nor was i upset, nor can i say i was remotely interested. It did however make me nostalgic about the original.)
Months passed and we got our first look at the Ranger suits..
Of course, all of fandom half ridiculed Saban and.. Uhm.. Lionsgate?! Are they the ones doing it?.. Hmm.. Gotta fact check.. BRB! 🏃🏃
YUP! ITS LIONSGATE!
Fandom ridiculed the new suits as blatant Iron Man ripoffs.
(I noticed the similarities. But still respected the studios direction they were going with the costumes.)
After that, Casting news began to spread like wildfire.
We had our cast of Twenty-somethings playing Some-Teens. Then Elisabeth Banks of ‘Zac and Miri Make A Porno’, ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Pitch Perfect’ was cast as Rita Reuplsa.
(That caught my attention. As to that i am indeed a fan of Ms.Banks.)
Then we got our first look at Rita Repulsa..
(Then my penis decided to pay attention!)
The photo clearly showcasing the very different and uniqe style they are taking with the whole thing.
Thanks to ‘Entertainment Weekly’ we got more and more exclusive looks at the Rangers..
Then more casting news..
‘Breaking Bad’ Star, Bryan Cranston was announced to play head in a lava lamp, Zordon!
(Interestingly enough. It turns out Cranston, in his early years in show buisness, voiced a number of characters in the original Power Rangers series…
Hype is steadily climbing throughout the interwebs at this point. We got Heisinberg playing Zordon, and a Rita Repulsa that makes men and women pitch tents in thier pants! Things are looking good!
Most recently, we got more exclusive posters from the studio, featuring the Rangers striking poses on their, still yet to be revealed, Mega Zords..
(My hype senses are tingeling! Yes.. The hype bug is slowly creeping upon me. Cant say im there yet.. Perhaps when we get our first Trailer, and its actually good.. We’ll see.)
And FINALLY! The MOST recent casting news to hit. Has been the addition of SNL Alum (and personal SNL Favorite) Bill Hader. And he will Voice APLHA-5!
Things are looking very good for the Remake/Reboot of the Power Rangers at the moment. The movie could suck major Donkey Balls! But that remains to be seen. We wont know until the film drops, March 24, 2017! But right now.. In my humble opinion.. This looks pretty fucking awesome!
So what do you folks think? Are you excited by what your seeing so far from the New Power Rangers movie? Hit me up, place a comment.. FOLLOW/SUBSCRIBE to the blog! And let me know what you think!
