Power Rangers
The Power Rangers in the upcoming movie reboot have got a seriously updated look... Lionsgate / Saban Films

Back in May, Lionsgate and Saban Films released the first official glimpse at their versions of the classic Power Rangers suits, with many concluding that the mighty morphin' heroes had taken a leaf out of Iron Man's book when it came to their new looks.

Now the studio have unveiled a further sneak peek at their outfits, offering fans a close up view of the gang's helmets and metallic-like armour, while showcasing the unmasked actors playing each Ranger for the first time too.

Although the exact plot is being kept under wraps until nearer the release date, brief synopses have offered up an idea of what's to come. Following a similar formula to the beloved '90s 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."

Terra Nova actress Naomi Scott is to bring Kimberly Hart's the Pink Ranger to life, with Me And Earl And The Dying Girl star RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston's the Blue Ranger, Marco Polo's Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor's the Black Ranger, A Few Less Men's Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott's the Red Ranger and singer-turned-actress Becky G set to portray Trini's Yellow Ranger.

Bryan Cranston is also set to star, playing the Rangers' mentor Zordon, while Elizabeth Banks will be seen as villain Rita Repulsa.

Project Almanac director Dean Israelite is on board to helm 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).

Principal photography began back in late February with the film aiming for a US and UK cinematic release on 24 March 2017.
