Lionsgate’s re-imagined Power Rangers has officially closed its worldwide box office run, ending the film’s lifetime gross at $141.9 million.
On July 15, the movie made its final stop in Japan, where it failed to make much noise. The movie earned under $1 million in its opening weekend and lost to Japanese competitor titles including Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales and Cars 3.
Despite being the home country of Super Sentai, the original source footage for Power Rangers, Japan ultimately capped off the story which summarized Lionsgate’s run with the Power Rangers: an inability to gain any traction internationally.
In May, the movie opened in China, earning only $3.5 million on its opening weekend. It placed fifth in China’s weekend box office, falling behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and two Asia-based films.
China’s number also came in as a massive disappointment, with recently released movies such as Smurfs: The Lost Village and Ghost In The Shell earning at least $19 million in their China debuts. The film’s performance in China unfortunately adds to the story making it hard to argue that Saban’s Power Rangers movie was anything short of a massive flop internationally.
Still, hopes for a potential sequel remain alive as Lionsgate has yet to issue any official word.
The movie did cross the $100 million club worldwide, which matches the film’s budget, but does not guarantee a sequel due to a more complicated box office process. Although Saban’s Power Rangers pulled in a respectable $85 million in the United States, Lionsgate could find themselves hard pressed to convince foreign distributors to invest in a potential sequel due to the movie’s lackluster international performance.
In its second week in theaters, Saban’s Power Rangers saw a steep drop off, its first sign of future turbulence. While most studios hope for a 50% second week drop, Power Rangers suffered one the size of 64%. It fell to 4th place behind Beauty & the Beast, and theater newcomers Boss Baby and Ghost In The Shell.
However, with a $40.5 million domestic opening weekend, box office analysts had originally called Power Rangers’ opening weekend performance incredibly positive, with Hollywood Reporter claiming it “morphed into a bigger player than expected”, and Variety labeling it “the new superhero franchise on the block”.
The film came in second place at the domestic box office on its opening weekend, as it trailed Beauty & the Beast’s $89 million, but stayed far ahead of its opening weekend competitors in Life and CHIPs. Saban’s Power Rangers safely topped the analysts’ opening weekend projections, who only forecasted $38 million.
Saban’s Power Rangers nearly matched the midnight opening for Kong: Skull Island, which earned $3.7 million. Power Rangers also surged far ahead of Lego Batman, which opened to only $2.2 million in its midnight release. Life and CHIPs, both of which opened alongside Power Rangers, failed to meet even $1 million in their midnight openings.
Internationally, Saban’s Power Rangers has struggled mightily from the start, pulling in a weak $18.7 million opening weekend in over 62 countries.
The turnout for Power Rangers thus far has consisted of 65% male, and 49% millennials according to studies performed by CinemaScore.
Power Rangers fans will have to stay tuned for news on a potential sequel.

Power Rangers 2 Begins 2019
Well it was said that the fate of the PR franchise rested on this movie, so I guess it’s good now?
Power Rangers is currently failing at the box office and we will not get a sequel unless we do something about it. This Youtube video explains the problem and how we can fix it and make sure we get a sequel.
Are we sure it’s going to be a huge hit in China and japan? Because I need more of these movies
I have seen films that made less get sequels. Power Rangers will get a sequel.
Power Rangers opened in South Korea yesterday, with its cume at $76,748 as of April 20 for a 4th place position. Good start!
Man, this movie was really good. Why is it failing everywhere so much? This situation really sucks. Hopefully it won’t fail in Japan though.
I hope it does well on video for Lionsgate to warrant a sequel. The film showed some promise, but could’ve been better.
If it doesn’t, I hope it gets rebooted and be like the Marvel films in tone.
Sadly It had everything going against it, while it has done well overall in Asia, China just recently opened its territory to international brands, so there didn’t seem to be much interest as in Malaysia or Singapore. I’m sure if that hadn’t been the case, it’d have done good there as well. It all came down to Europe as Latin America. Asia and Australia delivered decent numbers.
I believe the movie’s performance showed there’s a market for the franchise and the fanbase wpuld be pretty much locked for a sequel if it featured Tommy and the Green Ranger. For starters, the budget would have to be slashed some 30 to 40 million. It isn’t as expensive to do CGI action scenes today as it was some 10 years ago when a 200 million budget was pretty much guaranteed.
I feel like they took too long to get the ball rolling on the film after they announced it. Not to mention, a match release with beauty and the beast as competition. It probably would’ve done better This past December/January.
It opened better than expected, the past summer and 2017’s are incredibly crowded with blockbuster after blockbuster. I don’t think any particular movie had an effect on its performance, there just wasn’t much interest in Europe and China is practically a new, unpredictable market on which it would have done as good as the rest of Asia if it hadn’t been so isolated and closed in the 90’s, the decade of Power Rangers mania. If anything it shows what a strong market the female demographic has become lately and how you won’t get far without it.
I think the issue is the day it came out! But more to the point power rangers makes people think ‘omg that crap’. When you tell people it’s a good movie they give you this look. Like really?! That is the issue. I myself am not a power rangers fan but I loved this movie. I went to see it with a number of people who know nothing about pr and they too loved the movie! So it’s not the movie it’s the perception of what power rangers is. The issue is getting people to go see a movie they think they are going to hate but end up loving it
First weekend in China: an estimated $4.4 million.
you’re an idiot Gjch, the day it came out had nothing to with the final gross
so sad and unfair
nothing has saddened me more than the lackluster performance of this movie. if i could understand it, it would be a lot easier.
I am no die hard fan of PR in general, but this film from all stand points is near perfect. I have seen it 27 times and enjoy it more with each viewing. (sadly i will now have to wait till home media retail)
I have taken people who think the tv show is ridiculous nonsense, yet they came out of the film loving it.
I have to wonder if the fact it didn’t have a sameday world wide release if that is a factor?
If the film’s budget had been around 30 million lower it would’ve made double its budget. Some of the decisions which seemed good at the time and were supposed to grant respectability turned out to be of zero help to the movie such as casting Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Bill Hader as Alpha. I feel literally sick to my stomach and so angry, people can go fuck themselves especially Europeans and the brain dead female demographic which makes the likes of Twilight and 50 shades of gray huge. 4 identical Transformers shit fests have been hits but Power Rangers is not good enough for them, go figure. If the movie lacked the casting of a hearthrob such as Zac Efron then I personally prefer this, the film may have underperformed but we got a decent movie. Kudos to the production for sticking to their approach and making a decent film, light years better than the 1995 film.
Well Power Rangers 2 Could Happen Because Power Rangers Became The Best Selling Action Figure Brand (#1 Number One)
It has more to do with the name ‘power rangers’ that’s a turn off to some people. Why because they expect it will be that crappy tv show from years ago. That’s the issue
Only in the UK did this happen. US sales were reported as mediocre.
It was reported in this site that it was #1 selling toys brand in the US you asshole.
The denial in the comments section here is hysterical. Here’s the reality Lionsgate made a decent movie that just didn’t click with audiences on a worldwide scale. You can cite the 6 movies line all you want but you need to remember that Sony at once point also announced plans for an Amazing Spider-Man expanded universe, so yeah.
The sequel could happen if home video and merchandise sales stay strong but it will be an uphill battle for Lionsgate to do so.
I wish the movie did better. I think the problem was the release date and the competition from other movies.
There is always going to be competition. Power Rangers failed because it wasn’t marketed well, two trailers that gave off a Michael Bay Transformers vibe, and another that was Breakfast Club ish. Potential audiences didn’t know what to make of it, aside from this isn’t at all what I remember, and some were turned off by the late mentions of the LGBTQ trini and the bull semen joke in the reviews. Others with the lack of Power Rangers in much of the promotional materials and the film itself. Contrast that with Beauty and the Beast which heavily used nostalgia in its marketing campaign, marketed the film for all ages and was based off a film that is dearly beloved by critics, audiences, and fans, Power Rangers should have done the same, but the short sighted vision of Dean Israelite, a self claimed fan of the franchise, and Lionsgate decided to market this mainly to an audience that would be embarrassed to see it, and in doing so alienated adults for eliminating core concepts that made the original so beloved and original, and then tried to merchandise the film with children in mind, yet jokes about bull semen, and cyber bullying using nude photos of Kim, were enough to keep parents from taking them. The film ended up like so many others, with only the die hard fanatics and the curious in mind buying a ticket.
you have no idea what you’re tanlking abot the other darren, power rangers was neither beloved nor acclaimed. Don’t rewrite history, critics saw this as the perfect chance to get back some credibility after doubts of their integrity for givin every marvel movie rave reviews therefore rumours of being paid or pressured by Disney. They always belittled the franchise and mocked it yet the new movie comes out and it turns out it is respectable if sonewhat serious so in order to justify their mixed reviews they pull the it is so different from the original card as if they had ever liked the franchise.
many family movies feature adult jokes, the original series received greater backlash from parents organizations back in the day in case you forgot as you seem to be a history revisionist. you’re trying to uncover some deep reason as to why the movie failed to perform better when it is just quite simple, there just wasn’t much interest outside the millenial generation. The movie performed almost identically as the 1995 movie if you adjust the first movie’s gross to inflation which makes me question of this was the right time to release it, millenials are becoming parents and they will pass Power Rangers to the next generation and so forth. When baby boomers and generation x cunts stop being important demographics I believe PR will have more of a chance.
haha the other darren is something else, what are your overanalyzed thoughts on why Turbo 1997 failed, a child ranger? aliens being cast in a positive light? evil space pirates? Jason and Kim not having enough screentime? The politically correct multiracial cast?
the media will savage anything these days just look at past terminator movies like rise of the machines
and salvation plus genesis they failed in most markets but was successful in china but it didn’t stop
them for making more of them in the series it happened with Friday the 13th and an nightmare on elm street
franchises in the 80’s each sequel had massive failures but it didn’t stop paramount and new line for making more of them just like the ill advised ghostbusters reboot from last year will be continued in comic book form
anything goes in Hollywood but it will not stop them for event trying for another fant4stic reboot in the near future plus another go at power rangers may not be with the rebooted cast by the time they get around to
doing another one the cast will be too old by then.
frankie croft smales
This can’t and shouldn’t be considered a flop as noone had any idea how it would perform, it was discovered there just wasn’t interest in Europe as the film barely cracked the top 5 in their opening weekends across european countries and not even the top 5 in some. The quality of the film had nothing to do with this, if it did Transformers and the 50 shades of grey franchises would be dead by now.
Sadly Europe and now China exert too much influence. If it were up to Latin America, the US and south Asia the sequel would be a reality by now.
To me, a huge part of the issue was in the way it was released. We live in an age of piracy so why wait so long to release it in other countries, and go up against huge films like GOTG at that time also?
I’m willing to give 200K of my own money to help with the sequel and get a bigger budget and less cgi.
Oh am really so sorry why is this always happen to us hope we try again nex time tnx
