First Look: Elizabeth Banks on the set of “Power Rangers”

Posted on April 26, 2016

Elizabeth Banks spotted in full costume as Rita Repulsa while on the set of the new “Power Rangers” movie in Vancouver.

 

We adore Miss Lizzy and we really want to believe she can do no wrong, but we seriously question the choice to do this film. She’s going from the haute couture of Effie Trinket to … this?

But hey, she seems to be having fun with it.

It’s just hard for us not to see how cheap this looks. Like Saturday morning kids TV, back when that phrase actually meant something. Granted, we have absolutely no generational affinity for the Power Rangers, so maybe we’re underestimating the power of Millenial nostalgia. And we suppose once these shots are processed and ten thousand layers of digital effects are laid over them it’ll all come together somehow, but right now, this looks like B-level cosplay instead of big budget costuming.
