Lionsgate have slowly been rolling out the promotional material for upcoming reboot Power Rangers for some months and now, following on from the closer look fans they released of the new team's metallic suits back in July, the studio have now unveiled individual colour-coded character posters. In the new batch, each Ranger can be seen atop of their Zords, the Pacific Rim-like machines they captain during big battles.
In the artwork, Naomi Scott (The Martian) appears as Kimberly Hart aka the Pink Ranger while Marco Polo's Ludi Lin can be seen as Zack Taylor the Black Ranger. Relative newcomer to the big screen, Dacre Montgomery, stars as Jason Lee Scott (the Red Ranger) and singer-turned-actress Becky G plays Trini's Yellow Ranger. The foursome certainly seem to be cutting some 'cool' silhouettes but it's RJ Cyler's Blue Ranger (real name: Billy Cranston) who can't help but get our attention. Just look at that laid-back stance.
While the exact plot is being kept under wraps until nearer the release date, brief synopsis have offered up an idea of what's to come. Following a similar formula to the beloved 1990s television series, the movie will revolve around five high-school students, who team up to save the world after "they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat."
Project Almanac director Dean Israelite has helmed the film, while Power Rangers veteran Haim Saban is among the team of executive producers working on the reboot. The latest script has been written by John Gatins (Real Steel), Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold), Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class), and Max Landis (Chronicle).
Also starring Bryan Cranston as the Rangers' mentor Zordon and Elizabeth Banks as villain Rita Repulsa, principal photography began back in late February with the film aiming for a US and UK cinematic release on 24 March 2017.
