"The answer to what is happening to you is here. You five are the Power Rangers."

Lionsgate have recently released their latest trailer for Dean Israelite's (Project Almanac) Power Rangers.

Power Rangers, for the uninitiated, originated in Japan as the tokusatsu television series Super Sentai, and was adapted into Power Rangers for American audiences in the early 1990s, ultimately morphing into a giant franchise of its own.

This is the third big screen outing for the team, with director Dean Israelite giving the franchise a breath of modern fresh air and a (moderately) more grounded tone than the campy earlier versions

Power Rangers finds Becky G (House Of Sin) as Yellow Ranger Trini, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott (The Martian) as Pink Ranger Kimberly, and RJ Cyler (Me And Earl And The Dying Girl) as Blue Ranger Billy, who are recruited to suit up to save the world from evil.

The big threat this time comes from Power Rangers villain stalwart Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). And then there is Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), a veteran of voicing baddies in the original 1993 series, who this time will be stepping in as Zordon, the guardian and mentor to the team.

Power Rangers will arrive in cinemas on 24 March.
