BREAKING: NEW POWER RANGERS MOVIE TITLE IS….STUPID

The Power Rangers are a known property whether you like them or not. The high flying, campy nature of these teenage ninja warriors is coming to the big screen with it’s cast quickly filling up for the main five colors (the Rangers I mean) and thanks to those working over at Collider we have the budget, names of the characters, and the title of the film. The title of the film will be…

Saban’s Power Rangers

!!!

I know, I hate it too. The man behind the success of the Power Rangers has the right to throw his name on the title somewhere, but damn, this isn’t even subtle. The names of the characters have been changed from the original Might Morphin Power Rangers names fans of the show will recognize to:

  • Callum Oliver – The Red Ranger/Tyrannosaurus
  • Priya Patel – The Pink Ranger/Pterodactyl
  • Brian Olson – The Blue Ranger/Triceratops
  • Oscar Fernandez – The Black Ranger/Mastodon
  • Teyana Jones – The Yellow Ranger/Sabre-tooth Tiger

The budget for the film is as modest as the show used to be as well at only $35 million for the whole production. It’s better to make something great out of a little than make it on a huge budget only to lose money. It sounds like the campy nature is going to return to the film rather than branch off from the shows style of action and adventure. We will have to wait until 2017 to see the final results.
