The upcoming film is a reboot of the 90’s American television series ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’. Elizabeth Banks is playing the role of an alien witch Rita Repulsa in the movie. According to banks, the look is “definitely a modern and edgy re-imagining of the original Rita Repulsa.” The headgear and the costume have been swapped out for a more reptilian look.
People Magazine posted her first look from the movie.
