James Van Der Beek, Katee Sackhoff star in Power/Rangers fan film

Power Rangers

(From Entertainment Weekly) Go go gritty Power Rangers?

While a big screen reboot is in the works, director Joseph Kahn, whose most recent work includes Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” music video, debuted his fan film take on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and he has some surprising star power on hand to help.

James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff star in this 14-minute short film that takes the goofy, colorful fun of the original Power Rangers series and plays it as straight and serious as possible.

Words like ‘gritty’ have been thrown around to describe every big action property since Jason Bourne and Batman began ruling the box office in the last decade.

But Kahn’s film isn’t afraid to include every ‘gritty’ action trope imaginable. Updating a classic, beloved children’s property to be deadly serious? Check. Graying out a colorful palette so only the vaguest hints of bright pinks and greens remain? Check. Dubstep? Unfortunately, check.
