The Power Rangers reveals keep coming slowly, but surely, as Lionsgate and Saban give us our first real look at one of the new Dinozords courtesy of a poster that shows this big robotic beast in action. This appears to be the first of five incoming posters that will represent all of the Dinozords to be unleashed in the movie.
This particular ultra-powered Dinozord is the Saber-Tooth Tiger, which belongs to Trini, the Yellow Ranger. A few weeks ago, toy images hit the Internet that gave us a first look at these behemoths in plastic form. That was a less-than-ideal way to get a first look at these towering robots. And you have to agree, it looks a lot better in 'real-life'. Trini pilots the Sabre-Tooth Tiger Dinozord just as she did on the original TV series. The Yellow Ranger is played in the movie by Becky Gomez.
If you look closely at this poster, you'll also see the other four Dinozords off in the foggy distance, with the Tyrannosaurus & Pterodactyl Zords offering the best view. The Triceratops and Mastodon are bringing up the rear, and harder to make out. It's likely that the rest of these posters will drop sometime between tomorrow and next week. But this isn't the only fun treat that Lionsgate and Saban have lined up for today. They've also released a new photo of the main villain.
That's right, Rita Repulsa is back once again. And this time she is giving us her repulsive smile. Elizabeth Banks stars as the wretched witch in green. So far, we haven't gotten a look at Bryan Cranston's Zordon. And we've only seen Bill Hader's Alpha 5 in concept art. We know the iconic Puddy monsters will return in this reboot, but the rest of the wicked and vile alien monsters and villains are being kept a secret.
Saban's Power Rangers 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. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
Joining Yellow Ranger Beck Gomez are Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), RJ Cyler (Blue Ranger), Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger) and Ludi Lin (Black Ranger). Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) is directing from a screenplay by John Gatins, based on characters created by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy. Lionsgate has set a March 24, 2017 release date for Power Rangers, putting it up against Warner Bros.' King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Sony's Keep Watching. Take a look at the cool Saber-Tooth Tiger Dinozord in this poster courtesy of ComicBook.com. And we'll be sure to unveil the other five posters as they slowly make their way onto the Internet.
