The Power Rangers Movie is coming out very soon, on the 24th of March and with all the excitement, Lionsgate is releasing tons of content for instance there is a behind the scenes video informing us the fans on what we can expect from the movie and how important this movie is to Power Ranger fans and how they are trying to differentiate themselves from other superhero movies and paying homage to the original TV show.
The actors describe this movie as not just another movie but an interesting story of “teenagers with attitude” who are portray real high school teenagers who are outcasts coming together and forming a unit to fight Rita Repulsa and her army of puddies and golden monster.
Watch the video below featuring interviews with the main characters from the film
With only three days left, of the highly anticipated movie about “Teenagers with attitude” who are five teenage students who are bestowed with a unique powers and abilities they must come together in order to defeat great evil yes I am referring to The Power Rangers. On the 24th of March this movie (Based on the 90s TV Show Mghty Morphin) will finally be among us. I am a huge fan of Power Rangers (I watched Mighty Morphin and enjoyed the Dinsey era of Power Rangers such as Ninja Storm, SPD and Dino Thunder). I love this TV series so much because it represents unity amongst a diverse cast.
Now with the release of this film, the writers and director are introducing another aspect of humanity to their character development, They are making Trini Kwan portrayed by Rebecca Marie Gomez (Becky G) who is an American singer, actress, model and rapper. She is a well spoken, talented and beautiful and now her character is confirmed to be a lesbian.
This franchise has been around since the 90s and the hardcore fans of the show will watch this movie, also this movie is PG-13 so it is not for kids and will be aimed at 18 + and older males and females. This movie seems to be addressing mature issues such as: bullying, autism, working together and all around coming together as a unit to fulfil a purpose as a team which is to defeat an evil intergalactic witch. and her golden companion.
During Power Rangers‘ second act, there’s a scene in which the titular heroes learn that the Yellow Ranger, Trini (Becky G), is coming to terms with her sexual orientation, with one character assuming she’s having “boyfriend problems,” and soon realizing that perhaps she’s actually having “girlfriend problems.” It’s a small moment, but one director Dean Israelite calls “pivotal” for the entire film.
“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” Israelite tells The Hollywood Reporter. “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
One of the iconic things about this upcoming reboot is that, the director Dean Israelite is aiming to push the boundaries of a comic book superhero movie. Above you can see Trini’s character is discussed, thoroughly it is revealed that she is having relationship problems but it is later revealed that she is having sexual identity issues and is revealed she is involved in relationship with a fellow woman who is her other half the writers revealed they want to make Trini Kwan the first “Latina Lesbian” superhero on the silver screen.
In my opinion this is a bold statement as it empowers people in being themselves and accepting who they really are. This is the first time I have heard of a lesbian in movies who will be openly gay. This film is not shying away from sexual identity issues a lot of teenagers and even adolescents go through throughout people’s millennial years. Since this is a PG-13 I am not too surprised but I am looking forward to this nonetheless.
GO GO Power Rangers in cinema’s 24th of March 2017, stay tuned for my no spoilers review/spoilers review.
Saitama and Genos are returning to your TV screensthe critically acclaimed anime TV show that sparked a revolution last year in 2016 is going to be available on the popular streaming service Netflix . This news was brought to my attention from comicbooks.com . One Punch Man was a major success, due to the high ratings and large volume of sales of the manga sold in Japan. (7 BILLION COPIES SOLD in Japan) (One Punch Man is on Netflix US offically released on Netflix US on the 21/03/17)
Originally One Punch Man was a superhero parody web comic, created by an author who used the alter ego “ONE” . He was approached by illustrator that wanted to adapt his web comic into a digital manga and eventually into a television show for anime viewers.
The show is about a seemingly about a normal guy called Saitama with extraordinary powers. Before he became “Caped Baldy”Saitama lived a mundane, boring life and wants to change that so he does by training to be a superhero. his special workout regime consists of “100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100-squats and 10 Kilometre’s running…..EVERY SINGLE DAY”. HOW INSANE YET HEROIC.
with the amount of training Saitama has done he has acquired the unique ability to take out enemies with one punch he has defeated: Sea King, Mosquitto Girl, Grorbias, Speed of Sonic and Lord Borus.
One Punch Man grew in popularity topping the New York Times Manga Bestseller list and the anime with mostly positive reviews on imdb and forums such as myanimelist even non-anime fans were really interested in this anime and recommended it to their friends and peers.
Madhouse were responsible for the adaption of this manga/web comic. One Punch Man aired in Japan in October and December 2015, it was dubbed in English in Summer 2016, the show is now playing on the popular streaming Netflix US and I assume will come to Neflix UK after two months this year or summer 2017.
Season two of One Punch Man is currently in development and will be released later on this year or next year I’ll be on the lookout for any details on the release date. ARE YOU EXCITED TO WATCH THIS SUPER COOL ANIME TV SHOW ???
