I was never the biggest Mighty Morphin Power Rangers guy. Yeah, it was pretty much required viewing at its peak, but I wasn’t ever obsessed with it like G.I. Joe or Transformers.
But this new Power Rangers movie just might make me go all-in with the franchise. The more I see of it, like with this new trailer, the more convinced I am this could be the start of something special for Power Rangers fans.
Here’s the synopsis:
SABAN’S POWER RANGERS 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.
There’s a great Angel Grove High School website with articles about school life and the latest on the incidents. I’m a big fan whenever studios go the extra route to mock up websites to further hype up their films. And this one is very well done.
Power Rangers comes to theaters March 24.
