Believe it or not, in one week, we're getting a new Power Rangers movie!
The review embargo doesn't lift until Monday, but with preview screenings taking place all around the world, word has started to leak out about the Dean Israelite-directed film and for the most part, it's been trending positive, which should certainly be good news for long-time fans of the original series. Now, as for whether the reviews will reflect the same positivity is yet-to-be-seen, but we should know soon enough.
On another note, during recent appearances on The Today Show, stars Elizabeth Banks and Bryan Cranston debuted new clips featuring their iconic characters. The first clip sees Rita Repulsa attacking Becky Gomez's Trini in her bedroom while the second clip features Zordon & Alpha 5 meeting the new Rangers for the very first time.
Check out the clips at the beginning of the two interview segments below:

And, here's some new promo art:
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.
