Rita Repulsa Grins Devilishly in a New ‘Power Rangers’ Image, Plus a New Poster Shows Off the Zords
Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa is back in a new image from the upcoming Power Rangers movie, and she looks pretty darn pleased with herself. The Power Rangers official Twitter account debuted a new still of the villain, with the caption “Thought you saw the last of me!? Ignoramus, you thought wrong. I have glorious catastrophic plans for the holiday season.”
What those catastrophic plans may be is a mystery — this is probably not a line ffrom the movie, but a clue for some upcoming Power Rangers announcement. Maybe new images? New footage? A new teaser? Who knows where Repulsa’s nefarious plans end?
But that’s not all. Today we also got our best look yet at what those Zords will look like on a new poster: the Yellow Ranger’s Sabertooth Tiger is the most visible, climbing up some misty mountains, but we can also see the Red Ranger’s Tyrannosaurus and the Pink Ranger’s Pterodactyl. We can barely make out the other two Zords in the background, but their designs are still pretty much a mystery.
What this poster does do is give us a sense of scale: in the previous Zord posters, they had the Rangers, tiny, standing on top of their vehicles, but the vehicles were so massive only a fraction of them were visible. Here, you can compare the size of the Zords to the height of what I assume are regular-sized trees, so, man, those things are big.
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.
