Zack Taylor (Ludi Lin), Kimberly Hart (Naomi Scott), Billy Cranston (RJ Cyler), Trini (Becky G) and Jason Lee Scott (Dacre Montgomery) are five kids with a lot in common; they're all high-schoolers with pretty screwed up lives and going through a lot of the kind of problems that regular teenagers go through. That is until one day, when they stumble across what looks like a long-abandoned spaceship which they somehow manage to accidentally open. Once inside the ship, it soon becomes clear that they are not alone and are very much trapped. It's not the most friendly welcome to their new master as they could have, but they soon realise that Zordon and his robot minion Alpha 5 mean no harm.
In fact, they have chosen these very kids to unite together and become their Power Rangers; superheroes on which the world depends. Of course, they don't believe that they really have super powers at first, but after a series of minor incidents, they are forced to accept their newfound destiny - and quickly because a deadly force is already on the rise led by the dastardly Rita Repulsa.
'Power Rangers' (sometimes known as 'Saban's Power Rangers') is the third and newest movie from the superhero franchise, coming 22 years after 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie'. It has been directed by by Dean Israelite ('Project Almanac') with a screenplay written by the Academy Award nominated John Gatins ('Flight', 'Real Steel'), and it is set to be released in theatres on March 24th 2017.
'Power Rangers' actress Becky G was 'speechless' when she got to see her outfit.
For any actor, one of the coolest things about getting to star in a superhero movie is the outfit - especially in this day and age when costume designers can do so much with a needle and thread. The new Power Rangers uniform was a particularly jaw-dropping moment for star Becky G.
Becky G plays the Yellow Ranger in 'Power Rangers'
The 20-year-old 'Shower' singer turned actress gets to play Trini, the Yellow Ranger, in the forthcoming reboot of the teen hero franchise and one of the highlights of her time on set was getting to see herself in her revamped costume for the first time. It's certainly better than the Spandex and PVC nightmares of the past, but took a painstaking three hours to fit.

It's the re-boot we've waited 20 years for.
'Power Rangers' returns in an all new re-boot produced by original series creator Haim Saban. Everything from the costumes to the characters have been given an upgrade, so this isn't quite like the TV show and subsequent films you remember from the 90s.
