In what’s likely to be the final trailer for Lionsgate’s Power Rangers movie, the title teens lighten up a bit and have some fun with the idea that they are now basically superheroes. Honestly, who wouldn’t be excited at the prospect of donning magical battle armor that grants you badass fighting and athletic skills, not to mention piloting massive robotic animals that combine to form a gigantic battle bot? This movie should be fun, and this latest trailer leans heavily in that direction.
Time will tell if Dean Isrealite‘s big-screen feature film carries that tone throughout or if it balances the silly side of things with heavier dramatic beats. For the time being, I’ll take Bill Hader‘s robotic character Alpha 5 getting in a jab and a joke at the end of this trailer as a good sign.
Starring Naomi Scott, Becky G., Ludi Lin, RJ Cyler, and Dacre Montgomery, with Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks, the John Gatins-scripted Power Rangers opens in theaters on March 24, 2017.
