Like Ben Affleck, Elizabeth Banks is proving that just because you’re a successful director, doesn’t mean you can’t take on the occasional silly role in a superhero movie. Affleck went from winning an Oscar to Batman vs. Superman and now Banks is going from Pitch Perfect 2 to the live-action Power Rangers movie, where she’ll star as the villainous Rita Repulsa.

The biggest discovery of indie tearjerker Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was RJ Cyler, the newcomer who impressed audiences as the Earl of the equation. Both of his co-stars recently signed on for major blockbusters, leaving us wondering when we’d see Cyler do the same. The answer is now, as the young star has signed on to play the role of the Blue Ranger in the Power Rangers movie reboot.

‘Power Rangers’ Details Connect the Reboot to the Original Series in Wacky Ways

by Britt Hayes June 30, 2015 @ 6:15 PM
Although we were previously promised a film that would be “mature but playful,” the new details about the Power Rangers reboot make this film sound downright silly. It may be a reboot, but it definitely still features heroes, villains and specifics that you’re familiar with from the series. Basically, that fun Hollywood cliche applies: it’s different, but the same.

‘Power Rangers’ Movie Eyes ‘Project Almanac’ Director

Power Rangers feels like such a strange property to reboot for the big screen, but then again, the idea of reviving Transformers as a live-action film franchise also seemed pretty weird at the time (and still kind of does).

Watch the Dark and Gritty ‘Power Rangers’ Reboot You’ve Always Wanted (or Dreaded)

As the kids of the ‘80s and early ‘90s are dragged kicking and screaming into middle age, their nostalgia for the things they enjoyed in childhood has only grown stronger. And Hollywood has responded in kind, taking those childhood obsessions and transforming them into movies that are specifically crafted to appeal to adults with fond memories instead of kids. That’s why director Joseph Kahn’s new grim ‘n gritty Power Rangers short film is brilliant and unsettling in equal measure. On one hand, it’s exquisitely made and just tongue-in-cheek enough. On the other, it’s exactly the kind of movie that we’re worried will actually get made in the next few years.
