It's a teaser trailer though.

I'm sure the actual trailer will show some more of the Power Rangers.

Like every 90's kid I was obsessed with Power Rangers. I'll probably go see this.

It's extremely difficult to recreate Power Rangers without making it campy or cheesy. Making the characters outcasts at least gives them a bit of relatability.

The actors look like a good fit for the characters, the script seems to have a light tone from those brief glimpses we got, and the studio seems to have given it a big budget as shown by how good polished the visual effects are. Even the suits and Alpha 5, which I absolutely hated when they were first revealed, look great.

I have NO PROBLEM with them maturing the material as trying to adapt the 90's material to a modern era without doing a
"Brady Brunch Movie" comedic skew on it would be pretty hard.
The only thing that didn't look amazing in that trailer was Goldar but I guess we're going for the element gold as opposed to flying bear/lion thing and with that I can live. I'm sure there'll be more editing done but I'm looking forward to seeing this in cinemas.

For sure. Work on editing/CGI a lot of the times is still a going process up until two weeks prior to its theatrical release.

So far I'm really liking what I'm seeing. I really hope this will be a success so that we'll get the Tommy storyline in the next film and possibly Lord Zedd.

Why do I get the feeling that this will be derided by fans yet make a ridiculous amount of money and spawn at least two sequels?

So far the fans seem pretty pleased. I really hope they will get this right. It would be nice to see a couple of Power Rangers films. :D

Horrible trailer, I always watched the series in the 90s but I feel like there are some things you can't reboot. Looks like all the other boring movies these days packed with action and effects

Tbh, the original Power Rangers weren't good either. Like "Jurassic World" we'll go to the cinema because of our inner child and nostalgia.

I'm excited for this now! It's just gonna have to be taken for what it is. There's always gonna be comparisons to the original series, some good, some bad.

This theory is pretty damn good :o

Yeah but that was certainly part of the show's charm. Power Rangers was always cheap and campy, that's why it was so great.
