Not too long ago, we got our first look at the big budget reboot of Saban's Power Rangers, and while that preview did have some action content, it focused more on the characters we are about to see re-imagined on the big screen. However, if you're sick of watching that version of the trailer, and want something that cuts to the heart of the action quicker, then we've got just the thing for you, as an international trailer has done just that. Watch the fast paced video for yourself below.
ComicBook.com released this latest look at Saban's Power Rangers through their YouTube channel, and it pretty much eliminates 90% of the dialogue we were privy to in the original teaser. What we're left with is a surprisingly effective collage of the action beats that were presented to us, strung together into a shorter, but more intense whole. That being said, while this new trailer is made up of the stuff we've already seen in the first trailer, there's a couple of things we wish they could have included for a further look into the film's content. Namely, Zordon and Alpha 5.
While both trailers to Saban's Power Rangers show off some action with Elizabeth Banks' Rita Repulsa, there's not only a lack of her villainous behavior in this new trailer, but there's also a continued lack of Bryan Cranston or Bill Hader embodying the roles they've been cast in the supporting line-up. While they're more than likely being saved for the next round of trailers that we'll see cut for this film, it would have been nice to break up the footage we've seen with a couple quick glimpses and/or voice overs to give us another taste of what's to come.
All criticism aside, this re-cut trailer gives this reboot to Saban's Power Rangers a bit of a harder edge. Though it's hard to shake the stereotypical nature of the background we were given in the first spot for the film, we can see where the studio wants audiences to focus their attention: the big ticket action sequences. You can even see this in the fact that we've been given a sneak peek at the DinoZords that the Rangers will be piloting so early in the game. Still, when re-watching that first trailer below, you can see that the initial intent of selling this as a pure "teen movie" experience, with action mixed in, may not have been the best choice.
Saban's Power Rangers will arrive in theaters on March 24, 2017, undoubtedly with a more cast-enhanced trailer dropping in the new year.
