The first trailer that Lionsgate released for Power Rangers offered audiences a tease of what was to come in the film. There was a bit of grim darkness to the trailer that left many people wondering exactly what they could expect from the big screen adaptation of the long running TV series. However, in the new trailer that the studio released on January 19, fans of the Power Rangers are getting everything they could have asked for.
This new official trailer offers plenty of action, a look at the suits that the team will be wearing and even plenty of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. Where the first trailer left fans of the series wondering how the movie would bring the action, in this second trailer the action is intense and the team is both introduced to their new gifts and fully using them.
When the trailer for Power Rangers kicks off, it once more shows the small town vibe that reminds audiences that these teenagers are young and even if they are the “screw ups” that the one character calls them, they will ultimately have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders. It is also confirmed that these five people do not really know each other before they take on these special powers.
As the trailer continues, fans get to see as the powers they are gifted with slowly become a part of each of them and they learn how to control their new abilities. There is of course the moments that they could never have expected, like the strength and power that being Power Rangers instills in them, such as them breaking a porcelain sink or jumping long distances unexpectedly. Even as the new team comes together, they are also given some guidance from Bryan Cranston’s Zordon and the many tools aboard the ship.
As a whole, this trailer offers fans everything they could have asked for in a teaser for the movie. There is action, there is still that darker vibe that was present in the first trailer, there is a look at the villain and of course there are is a look at these teenagers as they begin to come together as a team. At the same time as all of the action is happening, there are hints at so much more within the snippets of conversation. When Zordon mentions that there is a long history of Power Rangers and even mentions a legion of them, it opens the movie up to unimaginable depths. This means that there is so much more potential to the overall story than one or two trailer could ever hope to offer up.
With still two months to go until the film arrives in theaters, fans will get to pour over the trailers to get as many details as they possibly can. Audiences will get to see the new team of Power Rangers in action on the big screen when the movie arrives March 24, 2017.
