Power Rangers To Launch A New Film Series

In his earnings call this morning, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer and fellow executives have revealed that the six month delay of the studio’s upcoming reboot of the “Power Rangers” franchise – from July 22nd 2016 to January 13th 2017 – should not be seen as a lack of confidence in the product.

Lionsgate Motion Pictures Group Co-Chairman Rob Friedman says: “We’re very excited and with Dean’s [Israelite] vision; we felt very comfortable looking for opportunistic dating. We really believe that great movies deliver no matter what date they’re on.”

Feltheimer says he sees the film as the start of a “significant series of movies” and adds that: “We’re picking a date where we think we can win.”

This is part of a move of Lionsgate to up their production output with 2016 seeing the company targeting a release of around fourteen or fifteen films.
