The Power Rangers will be back on the big screen in the summer of 2016...

Lionsgate's planned reboot of the Power Rangers has been given a release date. The new movie has been earmarked for a US release on July 22nd 2016, and we'd expect that date to be reflected worldwide.

Furthermore, we've got a brief synopsis for the project too, which doesn't give much away.

It reads:

"From a story by Executive Producer Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek, Amazing Spider-Man 2) and screenwriters Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor) comes a modern reinvention of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of ordinary high school kids who find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world".

Told you it didn't give much away. The missing part of the jigsaw right now is who is going to direct. We'll pass that news on when we get it.
