Power Rangers was chock full of fan service, including cameos from fan-favorites Jason David Frank (former Green Ranger) and Amy Jo Johnson (former Pink Ranger), who came back as civilians who live in Angel Grove. Still, other references weren't as easy to spot, and screenwriter John Gatins is here to help you out.
Gatins gave a few hints (via Cinemablend) as to where numerous references are located, saying “I think when [Trini] comes in her room, there’s like… you have to be able, when you have the movie on DVD you’ll be able to stop and look at the dressing and the set dressing in the rooms of the kids. You can see things, which I always really appreciate… You’ve gotta kinda look, because we had great designers and everyone was very aware of trying to put certain things and evidence. So there’s just things that, like, you’ll smile more and more.”
The film opened to a solid but still modest $46 million domestically, bringing in over $65 million worldwide. The good news is that Power Rangers has generated positive word of mouth, and currently enjoys a 79.20 on ComicBook.com's composite rankings. It also has a 3.96 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's user ratings. Hopefully, that will translate into some long legs for the property, as it attempts to overcome the $100 million dollar budget.
"Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late."
