CULT classic The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is getting yet another remake, this time for the big screen.

Lionsgate Movies has released the first teaser trailer for its 2017 release Power Rangers, starring Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks and a fresh young cast of rangers including Australian actor Dacre Montgomery.


The film follows a group of high-school kids, who are infused with unique superpowers and learn to harness their abilities for good.
