Saban’s Power Rangers movie topped all home video sales as the #1 selling home video of the week in its first two weeks of release. Lionsgate’s re-imagined superheroes managed to dethrone John Wick: Chapter 2 and Disney’s Beauty & the Beast to take home the top spot leading up to the July 4th holiday, as reported by research website HomeMedia Magazine.

In their second week, the Power Rangers were overtaken by CHiPs for the #1 spot in weekly rentals, as reported by HomeMedia Magazine.
With a continued strong showing of home video sales, and online reports of positive toy sales (recap here), perhaps fans of Saban’s Power Rangers movie may earn the sequel they so strongly covet.
Saban’s Power Rangers movie opened to mixed reviews from critics, but overwhelmingly positive reviews from both longtime fans and moviegoers alike. With an A grade from industry market research firm CinemaScore, and audience scores exceeding 80% on platforms such as Rotten Tomatoes and MetaCritic, Saban’s Power Rangers movie has thus far ranked among audience’s favorites in 2017.
Yet despite positive moviegoer reception, the film experienced mediocre results throughout its box office run – pulling in only $85.4 million domestically and $140.2 million worldwide. Saban’s Power Rangers movie will open in Japan on July 15, the final country which has yet to open the film.

Gimme a hell yeah!
About time we beat Beauty and the Beast at something.
I Think They’re Making The Sequel Thanks To Home Video Sales
I believe it may be done due to toy sales, they keep releasing new products months after its premiere
Not going to lie I’m enjoying beating Beauty and the beast screw that movie. Know listen here lionsgate everything you did in this movie with the characters was great don’t fuck with any of that. Don’t force anything. You set up some a lot of good stuff don’t mess with it up. in particularly Jason/kim and good job are taking the time to set them up and not treating kim like love interest bouncing around all over the place because everyone seems to ship her with fill in the blank. Just keep doing what your doing with them. Just next time pick better release date and give us some amazing action. Red ranger/green ranger fight and the masses will show.
Well I enjoyed kim/trini! 😉 And Jason/billy. But I kind of hope they don’t make kim a love interest and don’t force kim/jason or kim/tommy or whoever. I kind of hope they stick to the no love interest thing.
I feel like having the movie out in Japan before it was on home video in North America might have helped its chances in Japan.
I loved power rangers
This information means nothing. BATB and JW have been out on video for a month. Even the new Paw Patrol would’ve beaten them. This is not a positive milestone in any way. Just a natural drop in sales for 2 other films. Sequel chances are still screwed.
Go away Digifiend, we all know it’s you. Your website is a piece of shit.
It does mean something, many people who didn’t feel like checking out in theaters wait til it was available for rental. And as the article stated it was a 5 day holiday weekend on which there are considerable sales boosts. It could have not made number one easily.
It means that the film sold well during a week that many people do not typically buy movies. That’s great, but also, looking at the major releases of the current week, Power Rangers was it, so not much in terms of big competition. I’m sorry, but unless we see what the numbers are, I’m not holding my breath for positive sequel announcement.
James, I don’t know what kind of drugs you are taking like The Critics (Those Stupid Idiots) but go on ahead, join the critics, it makes you suitable for stupidity.
Way to assume. I loved the movie. I wish it had performed better. But having the home video release be ranked at #1 versus movies in which one shattered all kinds of records and the other one brought almost triple the revenue to the same studio that made Power Range
Way to assume. I loved the movie. I wish it had performed better. But having the home video release be ranked at #1 versus movies in which one shattered all kinds of records and the other one brought almost triple the revenue to the same studio that made Power Rangers, and both were released on home video over a month ago, is not a win.
This site makes me sick. I don’t even know why I’m commenting on this. You guys are filling up people’s hopes and dreams for something that will never come to pass.
Saban’s Power Rangers (2017) was a financial failure. The plug will be pulled. Let’s swallow it and move on. Stop tormenting yourselves and wasting your money thinking 2 extra people buying a 20$ home video release is going to turn a franchise around.
Keep telling yourself that. Ignorance is bliss.
This site and Power Rangers movie fans make you sick but you’re still here. We all know you’re Digifiend, you’re salty you run a shitty website no one likes. Go back in your basement, hater. Let us be happy over some good news.
Wow lots of positive and negative comments here! Guess I should throw in my 2 cents! I loved the movie, and I hope they make a sequel, but if they do it will be on a smaller budget! And that’s a shame! That is unless the home video sales continue to be in the number 1 spot! Fingers crossed!
Also let’s not forget the toy sales!
Please make a sequel with the same cast especially Becky g
we need more trini
Japan I think will do enough to boost the world wide box office sales since Power Rangers originated there. With toy sales and home video the sequal will for sure be made and I cant wait…the depth to this reboot was so much more than I expected I know people felt like there wasnt enough fighting or more action with the megazord but honestly they did a great job showing the origins of each character so far and I feel like if they keep on that path to make the SIX MOVIE ARCH like they planned it will work out just fine…..
If the movie was truly a lost cause, Lionsgate would stop promoting it or else why would they keep spending millions which they may not see back.
Showgirls was one of the flops of 1995 but has since become one of the best selling home videos for its studio. Power Rangers home videos have always sold well regardless of its motion pictures performance at the box office. Remember Power Rangers is first and foremost a TV enterprise so it is no surprise that it experiences good home video sales. You can not honestly argue that the movies grosses reflected the true popularity of the franchise. If the Simpsons movie reflected its show popularity it would have the record gross for a movie.
Good point. I always think back to how popular Mighty Morphin was at the time and that the movie should’ve been ridiculous at box office. But I guess people waited for the VHS.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: the Movie was released with heavy competition that weekend it opened. Apollo 13 debuted the same weekend, and blockbuster actioner, Batman Forever and the Disney hit of that year Pocahontas were major holdovers. Power Rangers was also in decline starting in 1995, the fad was wearing off.
Let’s be real here. The reason is the movie flops is because the POWER RANGERS name itself. General people know that name is a 5 colored guys fighting monsters kids show, and ask them to watched in theater is a bit much. I ask some of my general friends to watched it they replied with not so interesting. Tokufans is opposite of that. They very exciting and even cosplaying in the premiere. Another enemy is BEAUTY N BEAST ate all the audience. I need to convince my gf to watch POWER RANGERS rather than Beast. It’s hard but then she agree that the movie was good. Because of the concept show itself that make people think twice to watch in theater. And don’t forget the advertising. There nothing ads in my country about the movie, local tv, etc. Heck even kids did not now that movie exist.
^ that right there!!! Same. But we came out really enjoying it but thats the issue right there
