Brace yourselves for your childhood to be ruined or possibly rejuvenated. The first teaser trailer for the upcoming Power Rangers movie is here, and while it lacks in mighty morphin action, it makes up with a shizload of teen angst. In the modern, big-screen take on Saban Entertainment’s 90’s classic, troubled teenagers Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Trini and Billy find themselves in the middle of a mystery after breaking free from Saturday detention. Breakfast Club anybody? As it turns out they uncover those supernatural crystals called power coins, that give the possessors super-powered abilities.
While they teaser shows very little of the Power Rangers in action, except for a brief glimpse of Jason morphin into the Red Ranger and Elizabeth Banks in all her full Rita Repulsa glory, it does establish director Dean Israelite’s darker take on the 90’s classic series. I won’t lie, this does look pretty damn cool. Do we actually have a decent Hollywood reboot on our hands? Only time will tell.
