The ‘Power Rangers’ Find Their Strength in New Super-Powered Trailer [VIDEO]

Sassy teens turn into super sassy teens in the new teaser trailer for “Power Rangers,” released on Saturday.

In the film, from Lionsgate and Saban Films, five high school students named Zack, Kimberly, Billy, Trini and Jason become Power Rangers when they discover that their small town and the world are threatened by aliens.

The new teaser trailer shows the group before they have discovered their powers. They are all outcasts in their school. The Power Rangers suit starts to materialize just before the teaser cuts off.

The cast of teens includes Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G and Ludi Lin. There are also some more familiar names involved like Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks.

In May, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said the studio may make as many as seven more “Power Rangers” movies.

“We are really, really excited about the ‘Power Rangers’ movie,” he said during a conference call with analysts. “We could see doing five or six or seven.”

Dean Israelite directs the film which is produced by Haim Saban, Brian Casentini, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. The script is written by John Gatins, Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney. The film features characters mostly from “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.”

    Antonio Ligabue holds an unusual place in the annals of mid-20th-century Italian art, championed by those who feel his boldly-colored, largely naive paintings are the product of a self-taught artist whose mental incapacities prove that natural spirit transcends training and intellect when wielding a paint brush. Wherever one falls on Ligabue’s talents, making a film [...]

The claustrophobically close-up tale of a woman’s mental unraveling in the wake [...]
