Power Rangers and the last Divergent movie, Ascendant, are both getting new release dates, per Lionsgate.
Power Rangers will hit theaters on March 24, 2017, when Ascendant was originally set to open. Universal’s Mummy reboot is currently scheduled to open on this date, as well.
The movie based the popular ’90s kids TV show was previously set to hit theaters on Jan. 13, 2017. This move means that Power Rangers will be opening while many schools are out on spring break.
The official Power Rangers twitter account also confirmed the news:
This is the second time the film has been pushed. During it’s initial announcement, the movie was going to be released July 26, 2016 before being pushed to January 13, 2017. It’s not the only thing that has seemingly been pushed.
Dacre Montgomery, who has been cast to play Jason the Red Ranger, had replied to a user’s tweet on twitter (that has since been deleted)) stating that he didn’t begin filming until February in comparison to initial reports stating that production would start in Vancouver in January. The production list for feature films and TV shows taking place in Vancouver, Canada shows that filming will take place in Vancouver between February 29-April 1, 2016.
This has made fans wonder if filming is really that short (the PDF hasn’t been updated since December 11th at the time of this posting) or if that is just the time frame of production for Vancouver and other cities will be used for filming
