EW has published the first official picture of Elizabeth Banks as the villain Rita Repulsa in the upcoming Lionsgate Power Rangers movie. AND SHE LOOKS BITCHIN’.

Right now the details about the movie is scarce. The plot is pretty generic:

Five ordinary high school kids Zack, Kimberly, Billy, Trini and Jason 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 led by Rita Repulsa. 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.

Power Rangers stars Dacre Montgomery, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, and Elizabeth Banks.

The film is to be released on March 24, 2017.

One of the queens of the acting world, Elizabeth Banks, has signed off to play one of the coolest roles for her yet. RITA REPULSA!

The actress tweeted last week that she has officially joined the cast of the upcoming 2017 Lionsgate reboot of Power Rangers in the role of the evil alien witch. In the movie, Rita Repulsa is free after 10,000 years of slumber/cryosleep/whatever they are calling it this time around and the Power Rangers will need to save Earth from her wrath.

 

There isn’t much else known about the rest of the reboot but with the likes of Banks signed on, it looks like it can’t be too terrible!
