Only Elizabeth Banks could make me care about that Power Rangers movie that’s coming out next spring.
It was announced yesterday that the Pitch Perfect star and director has been cast in the role of Rita Repulsa, whom, I will admit, I have completely blocked from memory.
I was a kid a long time ago, and dem Power Rangers clearly did not become ingrained in my psyche.
Banks being involved with this movie, though (especially as the villain). That changes things. A little.
The actress joins Aussie newcomer Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, and Becky G in the project, which will mightily morph into theaters in March 2017.
