Slick New Banner Poster For Power Rangers Rallies Lionsgate’s Fresh-Faced Heroes


Over the past fortnight or so, Lionsgate has been busy peeling back the layers of its upcoming Power Rangers reboot to introduce budding viewers to the film’s supporting cast – namely Elizabeth Banks’ power-mongering alien and a radically different Alpha 5, the pint-sized assistant set to lend a helping hand (claw?) to the Rangers and Zordon – and yet, opinion is still mixed.

Overhauling a franchise with such a passionate audience has and always will be a difficult feat to pull off – how do you go about satisfying long-time fans while still serving up something relatively new? – but Power Rangers will be out to crack the conundrum, and possibly spawn a whole new franchise in the process, early next year.

In a bid to ensure that Dean Israelite’s live-action redo remains firmly in the public eye, Lionsgate has rolled out a slick new banner for the upcoming blockbuster, which essentially takes the existing character posters and, ahem, morphs them into one. Could this signal that a new Power Rangers trailer is on the way? With a March 24 release date fast approaching, we’re inclined to believe so.

For the uninitiated, Lionsgate’s reboot has Stranger Things season 2 star Dacre Montgomery front and center as Jason/Red Ranger, while the core Power Rangers lineup will see Naomi Scott as Kimberly/Pink Ranger, RJ Cyler as Scott Billy/Blue Ranger, Becky G as Trini/Yellow Ranger and finally, Ludi Lin as Zack/Black Ranger.

Power Rangers will hope to ignite a newfound franchise at Lionsgate when Dean Israelite’s modern redo hits theaters on March 24, 2017.
