Production on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie is well under way, and a photo of Elizabeth Banks as chief villain Rita Repulsa is now making the rounds.
Banks, who cut her sci-fi teeth in the Hunger Games, is sporting a different look than fans of the TV show are used to, which leads us to wonder if producers are going to drop the low-budget cheesy quality that made us love MMPR in the first place.
“It’s definitely a modern and edgy re-imagining of the original Rita” Banks told People. “We wanted to give her a backstory that connects her to the new Rangers.”

We still say Phi Phi O’Hara was robbed.
But we have no complaint about the Rangers themselves.
