A sequel to Power Rangers was reportedly in pre-production. But, Forbes has reported that it is not going to happen due to the overall underwhelming performance of the film at the box office. The Dean Israelite-directed reboot of the famous television series was released earlier this year and grossed only $86 million at the US box office. The film earned $51 million in the overseas markets and is one of the major flops of the year.
“Power Rangers” reboot was developed with a budget of $100 million and over $60 million spent on international marketing. Saban‘s film is based on a superhero team of the same name & is the first film featuring an autistic and LGBTQ superhero.
“Power Rangers” debuted at the Regency Village Theater in March 2017 and was released worldwide the same month. The cast included Elizabeth Banks, Fred Tatasciore, Jaime Callica, Kayden Magnuson, David Denman, Dacre Montgomery, Bill Hader, Amy Jo Johnson, Erica Cerra, Jason David Frank, Naomi Scott, Ludi Lin, Anjali Jay, Emily Maddison, Caroline Cave, RJ Cyler, and Patrick Sabongui.
