==== CHARACTER BIOS ====

JASON / RED RANGER - Played by Dacre Montgomery
Jason was a football legend in his small town of Angel Grove until one fateful mistake. When we first meet Jason, he is in need of redemption and is struggling to find himself. But soon he is given a chance to lead a new team made up of an unlikely group of teenage superheroes and must find it in himself to rise to the challenge.

ZACK / BLACK RANGER - Played by Ludi Lin
Zack is filled with bravado and swagger. He is tough and cool on the exterior but has many layers beyond his fearless appearance. Zack advertises everything about himself, except the truth, which makes him feel deeply inferior to all his peers.

BILLY / BLUE RANGER - Played by RJ Cyler
Billy has always been challenged in his abilities to communicate and interact socially. Whip-smart and sweet, he is the most pure-hearted of the group. Billy has never really had any friends, so finding teenagers that he is comfortable with is a big deal, and soon he begins connecting with people in a way he’s never been able to do before.

TRINI / YELLOW RANGER - Played by Becky G
Trini is mysterious but extremely bright. Her parents constantly move for work, making her the perpetual new girl to any school. A loner who owns it, Trini is self-sufficient and contemplative, but always observant. All she wants is to find her gang of friends, but she’ll never admit it — least of all to herself.

KIMBERLY / PINK RANGER - Played by Naomi Scott
Kimberly used to be Queen Bee of Angel Grove High, but has been cast out of the popular clique and is now struggling to find her identity. She has a new rebel-without-a-cause, edgy attitude, but this front is hiding a secret that makes her feel deeply vulnerable.

==== PRESS RELEASE ====

LIONSGATE AND SABAN BRANDS PARTNER
FOR POWER RANGERS LIVE ACTION FEATURE FILM

SANTA MONICA, CA, May 7, 2014 – Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), a leading global entertainment company, and Saban Brands, a strategic brand management company that acquires and builds global consumer brands, are partnering to develop and produce an original live action feature film based on the iconic Power Rangers property, it was announced today by creator of Power Rangers Haim Saban and Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer. The announcement marks another step in Lionsgate’s continued commitment to build a broad portfolio of branded properties and franchises with global appeal.

Saban launched Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a live action television series more than 20 years ago, and the series has been in continuous production ever since. It has subsequently grown into one of the world’s most popular and recognizable brands, with toys, apparel, costumes, video games, DVDs, comic books and other merchandise.

The two companies noted that, with an extensive and extremely devoted worldwide fan base as well as a deep and detailed mythology, the Power Rangers are primed for the big screen. The new film franchise will re-envision the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique and cool super powers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.

“Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level,” said Saban. “They have the vision, marketing prowess and incredible track record in launching breakthrough hits from The Hunger Games to Twilight and Divergent. In partnership with the Lionsgate team, we’re confident that we will capture the world of the Power Rangers and translate it into a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Haim Saban and his team to maximize the potential of this immensely successful and universally recognized franchise,” said Feltheimer. “The Power Rangers stories and characters have been embraced by generations of audiences for more than 20 years, and today they are more powerful than ever. We have the ideal partner and the perfect brand with which to create a motion picture event that will resonate with moviegoers around the world for years to come.”

Hopefully. Unless there is big news or there are a lot of arguments.

But, when has anyone ever argued in these threads?

No one is going to read my take on the new movie now. Maybe I should repost it! Pretty excited about the new movie. Big PR fan. Just joined today but I've been a fan since I was a kid and they released MMPR for the first time. My grandma made me a green ranger costume that I wore for halloween. I have a green ranger shirt I wear now. I have so many copies of the new power rangers comics! Sorry to blab, just excited to join!

so to summarize my thoughts from the last thread.

Young Adult novels don't really interest me, so the movie trying to use that as it's tone is not doing it.

Zords don't feel like zords to me, instead they feel like Zoids, and it only makes me want a zoids movie right now.

Toys should really not be the first glimpse of a characters' design...2014 TMNT were costumes, and those sucked (the design overall did suck, but I digress.)

New Rita reminds me of Scorpina in design, which isn't a bad thing as adaptations have combining characters isn't a bad thing.

They are still calling a Mammoth a Mastodon.

the combined megazord feels way to human (more like classic mecha anime and not suits)

I need to see the suits in motion before I can judge

I want the movie to be good, but I fear that the movie will take away aspects that makes Power Rangers unique from other superhero shows and almost make it feel too much of a generic hero show (I'm not saying that Power Rangers should only attack from the right side, but still)

I am but a simple man to please, I'm very easy - It's just when I do love something, I am picky as hell about it (Looking at you Ramona Badwolf)

I went back and looked at the very first thread. You were one of the first people to post and said nothing more than "this is going to suck". We knew literally nothing about the movie. You have said nothing more of note since. So please reiterate how you are doing anything more than simply trolling. Repeating the same opinion you originally formed based on no information doesn't give much credibility to your posts.

The guy's feeding off of the negativity of the movie and general mood right now.
