Ahead of its debut at New York Comic Con, Lionsgate has released the teaser trailer for “Saban’s Power Rangers” online. This reboot of the famed franchise follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat.
Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late. Dacre Montgomery, RJ Cyler, Naomi Scott, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bill Hader, Elizabeth Banks and Bryan Cranston star.
The new trailer offers very little actual Ranger action – the characters don’t appear in full in their armored suits, while Rita Repulsa is only briefly glimpsed. Instead the focus is on the human element which has a very “Chronicle” meets teen drama feel. It has also been confirmed that Repulsa’s Putty Patrollers and the winged humanoid ape Goldar will appear in the film. “Sagan’s Power Rangers” opens March next year.
