Lets get back to the topic at hand, a potential Power Rangers sequel film. 

Any leaks or news of a reboot or sequel to 2017?

Nope. Every article I've seen is from 2018.

😠 Well all I see is something from March ninth talking about the potential film but nothing definitive yet.

Not sure a sequel is a good idea.  First one was okay, but there was limited interest.  Not sure how they can change that, and its probably going to have a smaller budget than the first one.

Plus the money they get from the toy line.

Is it going to make that much of a difference?  The first movie lost a good bit of money.  Those two are draws for existing MMPR fans, but it's not going to draw in new fans. 

Bottom line....I do think a sequel could do better financially with those 2, but I dont think it's going to be enough to make it a huge success.  So the question becomes...is it worth it?

Let's remember....even at the peak of its popularity, Power Rangers movies weren't huge successes.

With Hasbro at the wheel, this is going to be a toy driven affair. I doubt box office will mean as much, their goal will probably be toy sales.

Did the first one lose money? I thought it broke even and the toy sales helped it make a profit.

It didn't break even at the box office. Definitely lost money in that regard.

I just watched this for the first time the other day and didn't like it at all. Had a lot of good concepts, but just so many poor story choices and I hated the guy who played Jason/Red Ranger. Elizabeth Banks was awful.

What was wrong with Dacre?

I agree about Banks, though.

Just had no charisma and couldn't buy him as becoming a leader. Also looks like a discount Zac Efron and I couldn't get that out of my head, but that's not really his fault.

personally he is the big reason why I want a direct sequel. I think this kid has a BIG future.

Haha...he is Efron-ish.

I thought he was fine for how they portrayed him.  He was troubled and doubting himself at the beginning.

I had numerous issues with the movie, but I thought the actors who played the Rangers were fine.  Maybe not great, but fine.

To each his own, though.
