Elizabeth Banks’s Rita Repulsa is front and centre in the latest Power Rangers TV trailer. We’re really hoping “It’s Not Easy Being Green” is somewhere on the soundtrack. Though somehow… we doubt it. Though she could do a quick rendition of, “Mean Green Mother From Outer Space” from Little Shop Of Horrors.
Directed by Dean Israelite, the new Power Rangers stars Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly, RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy, Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini and Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack, with Elizabeth Banks as the villainous Rita Repulsa and Bryan Cranston as the voice of Zordon. It is released in the UK on 24 March 2017.
