Power Rangers New Season Will Be Called Dino Fury | Screen Rant

Hasbro's long-running  series has unveiled its 28th season, Power Rangers: Dino Fury. The series began back in 1993 with the iconic  and has jumped to many other ranger teams as it adapts the Japanese Super Sentai series. This announcement follows the conclusion of the  saga which ran for two seasons and makes good on a rumor from back in January that hinted at the new season being dinosaur-based.

In addition to television, the Power Rangers series has expanded into other mediums including a live-action movie back in 2017 that teased the arrival of the green ranger. Despite mixed reviews and a modest box office haul, a new live-action movie is in the works from Hasbro but it likely won't be connected to the 2017 version. The series has even crossed over into Animal Crossing: New Horizons where players can use codes to dress their characters and islands up like the rangers of old.

The new Power Rangers series will be based on the Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger series and is set to premiere sometime in 2021. The story will follow an entirely new team as they fend off an alien menace with the familiar world-ending stakes to which the series is accustomed. The announcement comes with two teaser images, seen above and below, as well as an official Power Rangers: Dino Fury synopsis that you can check out below:

"When an army of powerful alien beings is unleashed on Earth threatening life as we know it, a brand-new team of Power Rangers, fueled by the prehistoric power of the dinosaurs, are recruited to deal with the threat."

This is the fourth time that Power Rangers has taken inspiration from dinosaurs with the original dinozords from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers as well as the Dino Thunder and Dino Charge series. This marks the shortest amount of time between dino-series for the show, with a gap of 11 years between each of the aforementioned shows. This new series will premiere only six years after the debut of Dino Charge and thus will have its work cut out for it as it attempts to distinguish itself.

That said, given the nature of Power Rangers' target audience, it is possible that the new group of kids it's aimed at were not around for the previous iterations anyway. In the meantime, fans will have to wait and see how Power Rangers: Dino Fury sets itself apart when it premiers sometime next year.

Halloween: The Actress Who Almost Played Laurie Strode

John Carpenter almost cast a different actress in the role of Laurie Strode in Halloween. The iconic character ultimately went to Jamie Lee Curtis.

Halloween: The Actress Who Almost Played Laurie Strode

John Carpenter’s Halloween was cast with many of his friends and previous work associates. While Jamie Lee Curtis was ultimately cast as iconic final girl Laurie Strode, the film’s protagonist, she was not the director’s first choice.

The casting for Carpenter’s classic horror film could have turned out very differently had fate not stepped in and flipped the script. The director’s first choice for the character of Dr. Sam Loomis was Hammer horror star Christopher Lee – who had flat out turned the role down; this was a decision that the actor would later openly regret. Also approached was Lee’s costar in several Hammer films, Peter Cushing. The esteemed actor, who was just coming off the success of Star Wars, also turned down the part of Loomis. Donald Pleasence, who wasn’t taken with the role either, did it partly because his daughter was a fan of Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13.

The screenplay for Halloween, co-written by Debra Hill, featured characters that were expressly created with certain actors in mind. Both Nancy Loomis and Charles Cyphers had appeared in Assault, and were both given roles, Annie and her father Sheriff Brackett respectively, tailored for their personalities. Carpenter was an admirer of Brian DePalma’s Carrie and wanted P.J. Soles, who had played bad girl Norma in the hit 1976 film, to play Lynda. However, for the lead role of teenager Laurie Strode, which has now become an iconic older character, fate once again played a part in the casting. Both Carpenter and Hill saw several actresses, but one was already top of mind for the director.

The revered filmmaker has revealed that during the early stages of casting, there was one performer on his radar for Laurie. Anne Lockhart, daughter of actress June Lockhart, had appeared in a few films and was becoming increasingly visible on television. In the late 1970s she was making guest appearances on such hit shows as Happy Days and The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries. Though Lockhart herself has no recollection of being approached about the role, she evidently had schedule conflicts and was unable to audition. This proved to be an ideal circumstance for another actress who also had a famous mom and numerous television credits.

After being impressed with Jamie Lee Curtis, Hill mentioned to Carpenter that casting the daughter of Janet Leigh in a film that owed a great debt to Psycho might not be such a bad idea. Though the first choices for the two leads fell through, the inclusion of both Pleasence and Curtis in Halloween helped to create a horror classic. Lockhart would go on to star as a regular on Battlestar Galactica and continue to appear in high profile TV shows throughout her long acting career. In the past couple of decades she has also become a prolific voiceover artist, with dozens of roles in animated television and film productions.
