What a time to be alive.
The very first trailer for the Power Rangers 2017 reboot film is out, and I am still screaming into my 5th cup of coffee for the day.
The film is a reboot of the original rangers, and is a retelling of the story of how Jason, Kim, Billy, Trini and Zack gain their powers, and learn how to use them in order to save the world. The power rangers were really important to me as a kid. One of the first movies I ever saw at the cinema was Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (big shout out to my Mum here, thanks Mum), and Tommy Oliver was pretty much my first TV boyfriend. It was very much a formative influence. And I love this trailer. I’m sure lots of people, fans and not fans, will have a bunch of negative things to say about it (they always do with reboots) but I love it. Also look at this!
And so, on that note, I will leave you with this warning: If Tommy Oliver shows up at any point in the film (maybe in an after credits scene?) I will be talking about nothing else for the following 6 months.
“Power Rangers – BACK TO ACTION!” (I’m sorry I’m just really excited ok).
