    So Power Rangers? Or more likely, what Power Rangers was based on.

  • randomironicname

    That is the worst fucking teaser imaginable.

  • FlamingTROLLZ

    So, Power Rangers and Speed Racer had a baby. A boring, tedious one.

  • Brian

    Maybe if you understood what they were saying… it would’ve have seemed so bad.

  • Mr I_LIKE_TO_WHITE_WASH_

    It’s kinda of refreshing that they are using “”real orientals”” for this movie and not a bunch of white people

  • John

    I bet the Japanese thought that was the greatest trailer ever.

  • Sarcastabastard

    I like the part where you see that one guy walking.

    yeah, who would think they would pick japanese actors for a japanese movie based on japanese characters.

  • ANTI Douche

    I’m guessing once you see (or have) the Zod ‘transmission’…
    You’ll have a new worst.

  • Convoy

    Saw the Zod transmission, and the Gatchaman teaser is still the worst.

  • ANTI Douche

    Agreed. So bad, it made me want to…
    Turn off my screen.
