in Movies, Television

An entire generation of kids grew up on the campy action-adventure series “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” and its many offshoots and spinoffs. Now that most of those kids are grown up, it’s no surprise that the franchise is being revisited in the form of a new feature-length theatrical movie.

This week People Magazine gave Power Rangers fans their first real glimpse at the reboot, with an enticing production photo of star Elizabeth Banks in costume as her character, the devious villain Rita Repulsa.

The minimalistically-titled movie “Power Rangers” is scheduled to hit theaters almost a full year from now, on March 24th, 2017.
