Zordon, Alpha 5, questionable cgi, Zords, more Rita, Putties and even a brief look at the Megazord, all and much more in the new trailer for Power Rangers.
“Five teens with attitude are inexplicably brought together by coincidence or destiny to become the newest generation in a line of warriors known as the Power Rangers. The world rests in their hands as Rita Repulsa, a powerful witch and ex green Ranger, launches an assault with a army of stone golems called Putties and a giant golden monster named Goldar.”
Those weird looking (awfully rendered) stone monsters are supposed to be Putties? Of course I didn’t expect people in grey suits, that would have been too much even for this, but if bad cgi rock monsters is what they decided to go with then I’m not as confident in this film as I thought I was after that first teaser. At the same time it’s still Power Rangers, and for the most part it does look the part, which I guess is good. Hopefully they’re not done with the CGI because most of what was shown in this trailer did not look very finished. You’d think they’d show their best shots in a trailer, shots that should’ve been finished by now.
Dean Israelite directed and John Gatins wrote the screenplay for Power Rangers. Starring in the movie are Bryan Cranston (Zordon), Elizabeth Banks (Rita Repulsa) and Bill Hader (Alpha 5).
Power Rangers opens in the very busy month of March, on the 24th in the US and around the world.
