New Power Rangers images have surfaced from the Power Rangers Virtual Reality (VR) experience at the 2017 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Qualcomm Technologies worked with Lionsgate on the VR experience, which is designed to allow audiences to enter the Zords of their favorite Power Ranger, embodying their powers and capabilities.
In the gallery below, you can view new images of the Power Rangers, Alpha 5, the Zords, and the full Red Ranger costume on display.
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
The Power Rangers cast includes Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, with Bill Hader (“Saturday Night Live) voicing Alpha 5, Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad,” Godzilla) as Zordon, and Elizabeth Banks as villain Rita Repulsa.
Directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac), Power Rangers is written by John Gatins (Kong: Skull Island, Real Steel), Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold), Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor), and Max Landis (Chronicle).
