Well, we don't know about you guys, but we've resigned ourselves to our new nostalgia machine overlords. Their latest decree: the film reboot of the long-running 'Power Rangers' TV series will officially hit theaters in 2016. That gives you plenty of time to figure out an excuse for where you need to be that day -- whether that's an excuse so you can go see the movie or an excuse to avoid it is up to you. The power is yours. Wait. That was 'Captain Planet.'
The man who's probably going to be directing 'Star Trek 3,' and the writers behind 'X-Men: First Class' are the ones reimagining our favorite teenagers with attitude. As the newly announced 'Power Rangers' movie slowly makes its way towards the big screen, Roberto Orci, Ashley Miller, and Zack Stentz have been tapped to compose the story.
Whether it was the announcement of a new feature-length 'Power Rangers' movie or just some massive wave of nostalgia settling in, we have those morphin' teenagers with attitude on the brain. Now, Bandai, the purveyor of incredible 'Power Rangers' products, announced their exclusives coming to Comic-Con 2014, and among them is one spectacular item that'll have diehard 'Rangers' fans looking to drop some green.
The 'Power Rangers' are ready to "go, go" onto the big screen once again. Twenty-one years after this team of super-powered, mighty morphin' "teenagers with attitude" debuted in the Saban TV series of the '90s, spawning a massive franchise with toys, games, movies and the like, they're now ready to return for a potentially franchise-starting film.
