Children and grown-ups alike flocked to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in its first weekend of release, and now Hollywood is betting the the '90s nostalgia wave will last least two more years – on Wenesday, Lionsgate announced that its Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reboot will hit theaters on July 22, 2016.

The studio has signed the the writers of Thor, to produce a script off a story by Star Trek's Robert Orci. There are no plot details yet, but knowing that Lionsgate was the studio behind Ender's Game, The Hunger Games and I, Frankenstein, it's likely the Power Rangers movie will skew in the same dour, effects-driven direction.
