Let's Fan-Cast the Gritty Power Rangers Reboot Coming in 2016

Let's Fan-Cast the Gritty Power Rangers Reboot Coming in 2016

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.

So let's cast the thing, then, with the quality of actors who might be able to bring a gritty realness to this tale of five teenagers with attitude picked to defeat the evil Rita Repulsa. We're gong to abide by the same racial casting standards used in the first iteration of the Power Rangers squad. If it makes you uncomfortable, that's OK – that awkwardness is practically an integral part of Power Rangers at this point.

'Sprang Break!': Reliving the 4 Best Moments of Spring Breakers on Its Anniversary (NSFW)

Originally posted 03/14/2014 01:00PM

Spring Breakers is a year old Saturday – hardly ready for the kind of "We're so old" nostalgizing that greets every movie anniversary these days.

But still, in the 12 months since encountering the Day-Glo rush of its first trailers, our affection for Harmony Korine's simultaneous celebration and critique of mindless hedonism has grown with each subsequent viewing.

In honor of the anniversary of Faith, Cotty, Candy and Brit's life-changing vacation, we're looking back at four memorable moments from the film. As James Franco's Alien says: "Bikinis and big booties, y'all – that's what life is about."
