LionsGate and Saban Brands has released the first teaser trailer for the much anticipated Power Rangers movie. Right off the bat you can definitely see that this is not the Power Rangers that we grew up with as kids. The tone is much darker and grittier than the original show from the 90s. However, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The focus in this trailer really seems to be on three main characters of the group making me wonder how much of this movie is actually going to have action in it.
The problem I think I have with this new teaser trailer is that this looks like a mix between Chronicle and the Breakfast Club movie, just not as believable as the originals. In fact I’m finding it almost impossible to believe that this group of smart and attractive young people is actually a group of unwanted misfits in their school or community. Also, if I remember correctly the reason the original group of teenagers were chosen to be Power Rangers was because of their comradery and they displayed heroic qualities.
Obviously things have changed quite a bit, but all in all this looks pretty good and I am excited to see it.
