The enthusiastic artificial intelligence unit Alpha 5 – who will be voiced in this incarnation by Bill Hader (Superbad) – is no longer the goofy robot we remember from the 1990s.
The original bright poppy colours have been traded for darker, deeper shades of red and blue. Gone are the 1950s science fiction aesthetic that made Alpha 5 so charming. But perhaps he will have a better personality this time around.
With Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) voicing powerful, peaceful alien Zordon and Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) physically present as villain Rita Repulsa, the movie will find the Power Rangers battling Rita's evil schemes and defending the Earth while figuring out their own teenage issues.
Talking of Rita, Banks' character recently staged a takeover of the movie's Twitter feed to debut a new image.
