‘Power Rangers’ Movie Gets Release Date

Lionsgate has given Power Rangers a release date.

The studio will open the movie, which hopes to launch a franchise, July 22, 2016.

The move puts the title on the same date as Warners&rsquo King Arthur, another movie that hopes to launch a franchise.

It also sandwiches the movie in between Universal&rsquos next Bourne movie, which opens July 15, and Fox&rsquos next installment of Planet of the Apes, which is to bow July 29.

X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are penning the script while Haim Saban, Brian Casentini, Allison Shearmur and Roberto Orci are producing.

Power Rangers was a &rsquo90s TV series and global marketing franchise, initially called The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, that used footage from a Japanese children&rsquos show. It first aired on Fox Kids, then in the 2000s on Disney-owned channels. A movie also hit theaters in 1995.

The new movie promises to completely re-envision the Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique superpowers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.
