Still very much in production, we won’t be seeing a first trailer for the reboot of the “Power Rangers” franchise for a few months yet. That hasn’t stopped Lionsgate from today’s reveal to EW of the new armored outfits of the group – their new threads are spandex-free and described as “translucent extraterrestrial armor that crystallizes around their bodies”.
Talking about the look, production designer Andrew Menzies says: “It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume. Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.” The film itself hits cinemas on March 24th 2017.
