Lionsgate has released a film clip from "Power Rangers," the upcoming big-screen version of the kid-friendly television action series about five high school teenagers who are recruited by an alien sage named 'Zordon' and become five suited superheroes who possess the power to morph into one mighty humanoid fighting machine.
In the two-minute scene, we see the would-be teen heroes (played by Dacre Montgomery, RJ Cyler, Becky G., Naomi Scott, and Ludi Lin) have just discovered a giant spaceship buried beneath the grounds of a remote desert area on the outskirts of their small Californian town. As they further explore the inner chambers of the spacecraft, the kids quickly learn that they are not alone. There's something beeping and buzzing within the shadows. Could it be the sounds of a certain alien robot named 'Alpha 5'?
Helmed by "Project Almanac" director Dean Israelite and also starring Elizabeth Banks as the evil Rita Repulsa with Bryan Cranston and Bill Hader as the voices of Zordon and his robot assistant Alpha 5, "Power Rangers" will be hitting theaters March 24th.
SABAN'S POWER RANGERS follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove -- and the world -- is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.
