Japan has released new artwork for Saban’s Power Rangers movie!
The film opens in Japanese theaters on Saturday, July 15. Japan will mark the final country having yet to release Lionsgate’s re-imagined superheroes.
The newly released artwork pictures the five Power Rangers, some of which have taken on the personalities of the high school clique their characters are associated with. Kimberly, formerly part of the school cheer-leading team, can be seen waving pom poms. Billy, often associated with a nerdier clique, can be seen building a pyramid of cards. And Trini, who debuted into the film listening to hardcore rock, can be seen wearing headphones.
The new artwork was designed by Japanese artist Yusuke Murata, released on Japan’s official Power Rangers movie Twitter page.
Despite being the home country of Super Sentai, the source footage behind Power Rangers, Japan is not expected to give Saban’s Power Rangers movie a major boost in sales. Thus far, the movie has experienced an incredibly lackluster international performance with countries in Europe and Asia generating minimal sales.
