On Monday, Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect) was spotted filming a Rita Repulsa scene for the new Power Rangers movie on the Richmond, Canada set.
Dressed in her green and spiky costume, the 42-year-old actress dragged her staff on the pavement as she walked slowly through the streets of Angel Grove, California, the fictional hometown of the Power Rangers. Citizens of the town could be seen scrambling to get out of her path and in one set video, you can hear Banks hollering at them.

Feeling sheepish that I thought this was Once Upon A Time, which would usually be filming in Steveston. But finding out this is Elizabeth Banks in the new Power Rangers movie is even more exciting!! I'll have to pay more attention to the film notices next time! 🎥 🙈 #sunnysteveston #bcfilm #PowerRangers #RitaRepulsa #ElizabethBanks #notonceuponatime #oops
