Over the past couple days there has been plenty of news, trailers, panels and cosplaying surfacing on the internet.  But few have been talked about as much as the recently released Power Rangers trailer.  Up until now speculation has been running high as to whether or not the reboot will take off and reintroduce Jason, Trini, Billy, Zach and Kimberly to an already devoted fan base.  That speculation will continue as we are shown the overall tone of the controversial movie, as well as the dynamic between the Rangers themselves.  It’s essentially The Breakfast Club gets superpowers, with interesting looking special effects and one of those eerie/moody slow paced songs playing throughout the trailer. But don’t take my word for it check it out below.

 

While we didn’t get a look at the recently revealed Alpha 5 played by Bill Hader, or even a look at how Zordon will be treated in this gritty/emo reboot, we did get a good look at Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, who has claimed to have “Killed Rangers before” which, at least for me, lends more credibility to the whole “Rita is the original Green Ranger” theory that has been bubbling around the internet as of late.  It would appear we also get a brief look at Bulk, the big bad bully from the original run of Power Rangers who ended up being a staple throughout future generations of the show.

What do you guys think? Will this be a great reinvention of the franchise or does the trailer leave you thinking about Twilight or The Covenant?
