A look at Lionsgate’s placements suggests the studio is targeting a split demographic: today’s kids/teens as well as the adults who grew up on previous versions of the franchise (Power Rangers first came on the scene as a children’s TV series in 1993, followed by movies in 1995 and 1997). The studio prioritized network-specific budget for NBC and Nick, and show-specific spend during The Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead and Nickelodeon’s 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards.
Just behind “Power Rangers” in second place: DreamWorks Animation’s “The Boss Baby,” which saw 1,037 national ad airing across 40 networks, with an estimated media value of $5.74 million.
