Entertainment Weekly has our first official look at the Power Rangers costumes from the upcoming movie, Movie is now shooting in Vancouver, the new Power Rangers hits the theaters on March 24, 2017.

Joe: Retaliation) tells the magazine. “Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.”
