Power Rangers Pics Tease Putty Monsters

Comments came earlier this week from Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltenheimer that the distributor is so confident in their upcoming “Power Rangers” cinematic reboot that they already have up to six sequels planned. Considering we’re a full year out from the release of the first film, it seems premature to offer such a prediction.

While the studio isn’t short on hubris, it has been stingy in terms of promotional material for the film which has seen only two stills published so far – cast shots of the characters in costume along with the villain Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). Now, more set photos from the Vancouver shoot have popped up giving us our first look at the pre-visual effects Putty Patrollers in their CGI green screen leotards as they fight the stunt double of Red Ranger.

YVR Shoots posted the shots and say the sequence has the Red Ranger fighting off the monsters to come to the aid of his father, who is in the blue pickup truck. Production on the film is expected to wrap today with the movie opening March 24th.
