Power Rangers was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated films of 2017. The darker, more realistic take on “five teenage heroes with attitude” and their nemesis, Rita Repulsa, was a true treat to see. Well, Hasbro is back at it again announcing that a sequel to the hit film is in in the works!

 In a recent report from Licensing.org, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said the toy company has big plans for the popular 1990s-era franchise, including a new film.

The Power Rangers brand has a “significant opportunity for growth,” Goldner said in the report. Not a lot of detail was given about the film, which will follow the 2017 Power Rangers movie that received mixed reviews from critics. CNET’s review of that movie notes that while the teen heroes don’t hang out at a juice bar/karate dojo, they “unmistakably” carry the spirit of the cult-favorite show.

Power Rangers fans with an interest in the Mighty Morphin toys and collectibles can mark their calendars for 2020. Goldner said in the licensing report that 2019 is a “transition year” for the Power Rangers brand, with new licensed products and entertainment content coming in 2020.

Lord Zedd and Green Ranger (Tommy Oliver)

This is huge news and we are glad to see the Power Rangers will be back in action. As you may recall, the post-credit scene reveals Tommy Oliver, the sixth and Green Ranger, will be introduced in the next film. There is no word on whether he or Lord Zedd will be the antagonist of the sequel. The Green Ranger was originally and adversary of the other Rangers in the series, and Rita did warn our heroes that others will come seeking the Zeo Crystals. The others are undoubtedly Zedd and other Ranger enemies like The Machine Empire, Master Vile, Divatox, or even Astronema, if the movies progress that far.

We are disappointed we will have to wait until 2020, however, for the sequel. Will the cast still be able to pass for teenagers then? Or is this a time to introduce the next set of Rangers? We will keep you posted on more news at it comes.

us movie opening weekend

Let’s lay out some pretty amazing facts about Us’ $70 million weekend. That is the highest opening ever for an original “R”-rated film. The 11 “R” films to open higher were either sequels or adapted from popular books. Us is also the biggest opening ever for an original live-action film in March and an original horror film in any month. Only It and last year’s Halloween opener higher. But…can it outgross Get Out‘s $176 million?

Us has already doubled Get Out’s $33.4 million opening. A good start indeed. It is the 142nd film to open with $65 million or more. Of those previous 141 films, do you know how many failed to reach the $176 million earned by Get Out? Six. (Fifty Shades of Grey, Halloween 2018, Fast and FuriousQuantum of Solace,X-Men: Apocalypse2012). That is already 95.7% in favor of Us besting Get Out’s total. The number to watch next week when Dumbo knocks Us back to second is whether its second weekend is over or under $28 million.

We are clapping all the way to the bank for Jordan Peele! Yet again, movie trackers are bad at predicting what will be a hit or not. Social media indicated just what a buzz this film had around it, thus we are not surprised! What do you guys think of Us? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE, a film that has grossed over $350 million in theaters worldwide to date, introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the iconic mask. “One of the most rewarding experiences in recent months has been to hear that children are telling their parents that they see themselves in Miles, or that they want to grow up to be like Spider-Gwen, anyone can be a hero. Thats why we made this film, and we hope that feeling of empowerment is something that both audiences young and old can take away,” say Directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman.
