Lionsgate has unveiled new motion posters for their highly-anticipated Power Rangers adventure, which gives fans a closer look at these new helmets worn by these heroes. We also have what could be the first in a new series of character posters for this upcoming reboot, featuring Billy the Blue Ranger, played by RJ Cyler. The actor is seen sitting on the shoulder of his massive robot known as a Zord, with this poster also revealing that Billy is the "Master of Operations."
Lionsgate unveiled the motion posters and the character poster on Twitter earlier today, arriving just one week after a new viral website surfaced for Angel Grove High School. The studio also unveiled the first trailer during their New York Comic Con presentation earlier this month, which was well-received by the fans. It was also recently announced that the Power Rangers will cross over with the Justice League of America in a new DC comic book debuting in January.
Power Rangers stars Becky G (Yellow Ranger), Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), RJ Cyler (Blue Ranger), Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger) and Ludi Lin (Black Ranger), with Elizabeth Banks also starring as the villainous Rita Repulsa. It was also recently confirmed that Bill Hader will provide the voice of Alpha 5, while Bryan Cranston will portray Zordon in this remake, which has been set for release on March 24, 2017. It was also recently confirmed that none of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers original cast members will have cameos in this reboot.
This new update of the Power Rangers TV show follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove, and the world, is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat.
