Power Rangers Official Teaser Trailer: Mighty Morphin’ Social Misfits


The new Power Rangers trailer eschews the gorgeous, candy-colored goody-two-shoes rangers of the original series for a gang of somber, bullied "weirdos and criminals," who are also gorgeous and probably goody-two-shoes at heart. Playing down the suits, playing up the teens' superhero crime-fighting powers, and setting it all to a Halsey cover of Johnny Cash's “I Walk the Line,” the new Power Rangers is clearly angling for a cooler, hipper, more-dangerous vibe. Elizabeth Banks’s Rita Repulsa straight-up threatens to murder one of them, for Zordon’s sake. Don't worry though: There is still a little morphin'.
