‘Power Rangers’ International Trailer Has Teens, Angst, and One Mean Rita Repulsa

In case you forgot that the Power Rangers movie is happening, Warner Bros. has rolled out an international trailer to drum up interest here and overseas. There’s a good chance this movie will be way bigger on the other side of the Pacific than here — after all, the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers TV show came from Japan. This is the first big blockbuster live-action movie adaptation of the characters, so it makes sense that it’ll trace back to the original TV show’s roots a little, but not without some changes. The new trailer features angsty teens, mysterious alien rocks, and symbolic hair-cutting.

We have yet to see Zordon or Alpha-5 in the trailers, and there’s a good chance we won’t until the movie comes out. There have been plenty of images and posters released, but no new footage since the first trailer came out. What I like about this trailer and the ones that have come before it is that it really doesn’t give too much of the movie away. This could be strategic, to add an air of mystery to the plot, or it could just be because they figure we already know the story of the Power Rangers anyway. Whether you like Power Rangers or not, it’s cool that these trailers aren’t giving too much away. If you want to see the Rangers suited up and fighting crime, you’ll have to go to the theater.

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary teens 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 they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

Power Rangers hits theaters March 24, 2017.
