Power Rangers movie casts Elizabeth Banks

Power-Rangers-MovieThe forces behind Power Rangers just made a bold move and announced that Elizabeth Banks has been cast as Rita Repulsa.

Elizabeth Banks has never been an over-the-top villain before, but the casting seems great.  Banks joins the existing cast of relative unknowns playing the Rangers including Dacre Montgomery, RJ Cyler, Naomi Scott, Becky G. and Ludi Lin.  Here’s to hoping we get an announcement about Goldar soon!

The movie, based upon the popular children’s show from the early 90s, is scheduled to come out in 2017.  With the recent success of other childhood nostalgic blockbusters of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Transformers, this could be a surprising, well performing hit next Summer.
