Rita Repulsa Power Rangers

A couple of months back it was reported that The Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks was set to star in the Power Rangers movie reboot as the villain Rita Repulsa.

Now we have our first look at Banks in full costume as the baddie, and she looks much different from the version seen in the image above. Banks herself describes it as a “modern and edgy re-imagining” of the original’s look.

You can see the image of Banks as Repulsa below.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Saban Lionsgate Movie

Power Rangers is a film that is happening. After various TV iterations and reincarnations, network switches, and two live-action films, we are finally getting a new reboot with an all new cast. The principle story stays the same where five teenagers with attitude and skills are recruited by Zordon to stop an evil alien force from ruling the world. Now the five young recruits consist of a young and relatively unknown cast. But one of Lionsgate’s major goals was to cast an A-list star to attract fans of the franchise and generate new ones.

The studio didn’t have to look too far as they have cast Elizabeth Banks to play Rita Replusa.

RJ Cyler joins Power Rangers

As expected, Dean Israelite has gone with relative unknowns to play the titluar heroes in Power Rangers. We saw a glimpse of who Israelite was looking at when they started testing for the roles of the five teenagers earlier this month. However, the only one to be confirmed from those testings so far is Naomi Scott (The Martian, The 33). Newcomer, Dacre Montgomery was also announced earlier this month as Jason the Red Ranger.

Now two more actors will be receiving their power coins and morphers. The official Power Rangers Twitter account confirmed that Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt, Netflix’s Marco Polo) and Me and Earl And The Dying Girl star RJ Cyler will be joining the cast. Find out who they will be playing below.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Saban Lionsgate Movie

It has been slow-going, but Lionsgate is finally getting ready to cast Power Rangers. This past summer, a character description list revealed that the team would be comprised of Jason, Zack, Billy, Trini, and Kimberly – these are the names of the five who would become the first power rangers. The descriptions followed the basic character tropes of natural-born leader, the cool-guy, the nerd, the calm and collected person, and the popular pretty one.

Now, a new shortlist reveals who director Dean Isrealite and Lionsgate are looking at to fill those roles. Check out who is auditioning for what role here below.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Saban Lionsgate Movie

Lionsgate’s adaptation of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers hits theaters January 2017, but up until now we didn’t know much about the film. The last major development for the film was that Project Almanac director Dean Israelite was signed on to direct the film. But with no cast or list of characters, fans weren’t sure if this was going to be another installment to the long running TV franchise or if this would be a major reboot.

Now the character descriptions of the new Power Rangers have been revealed, giving us a slight idea of what we are going to get. Check them out below.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Saban Lionsgate Movie

Last year it was announced that Lionsgate would be rebooting the Power Rangers. Production has been slow going for the film, which is expected to get a July 2016 release, having already lost executive producer Roberto Orci . Although Joseph Kahn‘s darker take on Power Rangers isn’t actually a part of the franchise, and was considered more fanfare, the viral video hit set the bar pretty high. Even Saban Entertainment – the production company that helped bring Power Rangers from Japan and adapt it for American audiences – fought to have the video taken down. But the video may have actually helped the film in the long run, as there was a debate as to whether or not there can be a more mature Power Rangers or not. Kahn has explicitly stated that there would not be a longer version of his short, which may have disappointed those who liked the video.

Lionsgate’s Power Rangers probably won’t mirror Kahn’s short in the end, but they are finally narrowing down the list of possible directors. According to a new report, Project Almanac‘s Dean Israelite is now in talks to helm the Power Rangers reboot.

SDCC 2014: Paramount panel

The final film panel of San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H on Thursday belonged to Paramount Pictures, which presented Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Project Almanac, Hercules, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

As the room darkened the voice of SpongeBob Squarepants was heard over the speakers, searching for Hall H. Voice actor Tom Kenny then came on to cheers from the crowd as he introduced footage from the film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, in which Spongebob and crew have to leave the ocean to become superheroes to save Bikini Bottom. This was followed by a video retrospective of the history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, from the earliest sketches to the cultural phenomenon that followed.

A remake of the 1983 movie WarGames being developed by MGM has found a writer and director for the project.

Amel previously wrote Erased with Aaron Eckhart and most recently penned the script for Grace of Monaco, the movie about actress Grace Kelly’s as a star of the Golden Age of Hollywood and eventual Princess of Monaco that stars Nicole Kidman. Israelite has mostly directed shorts, with his feature directorial debut, Project Almanac (previously titled Welcome to Yesterday), coming soon.

‘Welcome To Yesterday’ Trailer: Trime Travel Meets Found Footage

Welcome to Yesterday Trailer

Found footage movies have dominated the horror genre for the past couple of years, but now we’re really starting to see them branch out into other genres. The surprise microbudget megahit Chronicle covered found footage superheros, and now comes a new found footage flick that dives into the always interesting (sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a bad way) world of time travel, with hopes of replicating that low-cost, high-reward Chronicle success.

The movie is titled Welcome to Yesterday (a new title, as the former title, Almanac, is still being used on IMDB), and involves a group of friends who discover a way to create a time travel machine, and then begin to use this new found technology with reckless abandon. Such power can quickly go to a young person’s—or any person’s, for that matter—head, and soon the friends realize that their actions have great consequences.

Click on over to the other side to check out the trailer.
