Coming soon to a theater near you is the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.
Expect to see new TV shows, books, and toys in your local Wal-Mart, grocery store, and even gas station as Lionsgate is bringing back the iconic series.
According to Deadline, Lionsgate is teaming with Saban Brands to bring the Power Rangers back to the big screen for a potential new television franchise.
The first Power Rangers movie made $66 million dollars in the box office with a 15 million dollar budget. But, the 1997’s Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie did horribly in the box office. So, this may be a bigger challenge to becoming a hit than it might look. But, with the recent success of Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles it might be possible.
The new film will cast a new group of high school kids who mix their studies and social lives with the mission to save the world.
Even though the plot seems very unoriginal, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 definitely showed that it is possible to create a 400 million dollar blockbuster on very predictable story lines.
