Superhero Hype wrote:Roberto Orci Drops Out of Power Rangers Reboot

Deadline reports that due to his schedule for the upcoming Star Trek 3, executive producer Roberto Orci has had to drop out of Lionsgate and Saban’s upcoming big screen reboot of the Power Rangers. Orci recently completed the first draft of Star Trek 3 with co-writers Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne which he will also direct. No release date is currently set for that film, but the expectation is that the new film will land in theaters in 2016, just in time for the franchise’s 50th anniversary.

Screenwriters Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor) will script the upcoming reboot of Power Rangers, which is described as a modern reinvention of the long-running franchise. In it, a group of ordinary high school kids find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world. It is currently set for release on July 22, 2016.

Saban’s “Power Rangers” franchise is the brainchild of Haim Saban, creator and producer of the original “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” hit series that launched in 1993. Following its introduction, “Power Rangers” quickly became the most-watched children’s television program in the United States and remains one of the top-rated and longest running boys live-action series in television history. The series follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who “morph” into superheroes and save the world from evil. It is seen in more than 150 markets around the world, translated into numerous languages and is a mainstay in the most prominent international children’s programming blocks.

20th Century Fox previously released two feature films, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie in 1995 and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie in 1997.

Good. 8-)

Saw it yesterday. Awesome but not the way I would want a "Power Rangers" film to be portrayed..

The link you posted Cyborg doesn't work now because "Saban" ordered the removal due to copyright.

Superhero Hype wrote:Project Almanac’s Dean Israelite is in Talks to Direct Power Rangers

TheWrap is reporting that Project Almanac director Dean Israelite is currently in talks to direct Lionsgate and Saban Films’ Power Rangers.

Israelite has apparently been courted to direct a number of Hollywood tentpoles over the past few months on the basis of Project Almanac, although it only grossed $22 million domestically earlier this year after being delayed from last year. Israelite is said to be a huge fan of the Power Rangers franchise.

The original “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” was a hugely popular television show when it debuted in 1993, culled from reworked footage from Japan’s “Super Sentai” as it introduced North America to the concept of high school students with martial arts-based superpowers. The show has remained in production in various incarnations for the past two decades with two theatrical releases: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie in 1995 and its less successful sequel Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie.

With a script in place by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class), the movie is already scheduled for July 22, 2016 with original creator Haim Saban acting as a producer, along with Brian Casentini, Allison Shearmur and Roberto Orci.

One presumes that Lionsgate is hoping to turn the Power Rangers into a theatrical franchise similar to what Paramount is doing with the similarly-popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Israelite is also attached to the long-in-development remake of the popular ’80s film War Games.

just got back from seeing it, not bad. all I can say is, GO GO POWER RANGERS!

grew up on the tv show and had the toys, so I had to see what they would do with this version of the story. kind of forgot the show and remembered a few small things about it. it's an origin story so 3/4 of the movie is all character development and that was what slowed it down, the characters are cool and had some funny moments. when they get their powers you would think they would get straight into the suits but drags along a bit more. the actors and their characters are cool but this could have been trimmed down a little.

it was entertaining enough, the action at the end was cool. don't mind this version of the suits, and the 2 cameos were awesome to see. critics really like it, but trash something like Transformers. I don't get that, it's basically the same kind of thing. just over the top action and explosions, the characters are better in this and likeable... although I didn't care for the yellow ranger all that much. since 3/4 of the movie is about the characters it could have very well been something else, like Chronicle 2. thinking about it more, it's similar to Fantastic 4 2015, all character for 3/4 out of the movie and the last act is the big fight... and everyone hates that movie. was gonna give it a 3 but...

Movie:

This movie was rated 3.5 stars out of 5
