This year, its classic 90s TV show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers‘ turn to get rebooted for the big screen in the much-anticipated Power Rangers from Lionsgate. The first trailer, released late last year, caused a stir online as it presented a movie far removed from the cheese of the original show. It seemed to promise a more down-to-earth take on the franchise that was an unlikely blend of The Breakfast Club and Chronicle.
While it impressed many, some felt it could follow in the footsteps as 2015’s Fantastic Four as another misguided gritty reboot of a family-friendly property. Thankfully, this second trailer puts those fears to bed by ramping up the humour, the action and the loving nods to the original show. By the looks of things, the movie will be a very different beast from the kitschy cult kids show we all grew up with, but it’ll still remember not to take itself too seriously, which should help Power Rangers appeal to both hardcore fans and newcomers alike.
So, as we wait for the reboot to hit theaters, join us we take a look back at the new trailer and pick out the 8 most exciting moments from it!
