Default Concern over the movie hype

I'm getting concerned about the new movie's chances of success. I am just not sure if the hype is going to be enough for the non fans to check it out. There could be too much market confusion with people who think its a kids movie or just don't care. I am not sure if the latest trailer does a good job giving people a reason to see this.

I hope I am wrong because its a good opportunity for the franchise. Perhaps reviews will help, but I could see this as the type of movie movie reviewers snub their noses at. Its good there isn't much competition in March but you still have to get people in the theater.

The general audience doesn't care about this. And its going to go over the heads of the kids. I don't think the die hard fans are enough to support this. Its going to flop hard.

I think it has a chance to do very well. It looks like the best thing to come out of this franchise in years.

I just hope the second trailer was enough to save it . Since the first one was way too dark. Of course if it isn't true to MMPR than its better off failing. I wouldn't even be posting this if it weren't for the second trailer. Which gave me at least some hope for a good movie.

It reminds me of when Transformers had it's first movie release. No one knew just how well it would do. And really there wasn't much given away in the trailers to attract newcomers. And it ended up doing great. So I think the same thing can happen with the Power Rangers film.

Transformers was a more well establish amd respected brand. PR doesn't have enough of an audience that takes it seriously. The general public doesn't think much of it. Despite its tremendous success as a franchise.

Maybe that was true when the first movie came out. But its been years since then. PR has had more time to catch up. And now should have a lot of lapsed fans that are grown ups and ready for a new version of it. Its time for 90s nostalgia on the big screen, just like we had 80s nostalgia. PR is also easier to adapt if you want human leads. Which is a conflict TF has had to deal with.
