Power Rangers Director Says Sequel Talks Are Taking Place
The status of the Power Rangers movie franchise has been up in the air ever since the final box office figures came in. Lionsgate and Saban’s big screen reboot, directed by Dean Israelite, enjoyed a big opening weekend, domestically, but ticket sales quickly tailed off and the movie ended up $85 million on home shores. In China, where a strong performance had been widely predicted, it didn’t manage to perform well at all, taking around $4.2 million and putting Power Rangers on a worldwide total of $140 million. Figures like that mean that any chance of a sequel, much less a multi-movie franchise as originally conceived, is unlikely. Thanks to toy sales, though, relating to both Power Rangers movie and Power Rangers: Ninja Steel TV show, we could well see a sequel sometime in the future.
