It's Morphin' Time for Elizabeth Banks! (Well, sort of…)

The Pitch Perfect 2 director is set to star as the villain in the upcoming Power Rangers movie!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress has signed on to play the iconic character Rita Repulsa — the alien witch who is bent on world domination!

The 41-year-old will be trying to put a stop to a group of teenagers who are infused with powers — played by RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludy Lin, Naomi Scott, and Dacre Montgomery!

Rita was the OG villain of the hit 1990's TV series, and we think Banks is an inspired choice to play the campy yet scary character!

Plus, the actress is already used to wearing crazy costumes playing Effie Trinket in the Hunger Games, so pulling off Rita's bewitching wardrobe should be a breeze!

With the addition of Banks, and the fact that the X-Men: First Class writers are penning the script, we're definitely showing our excitement for the Power Rangers movie — and Rita is, too…

Well, 2015 had some of the best movies the industry has seen in some time. Unfortunately, there were also some pretty horrendous flicks too. No joke!

Thankfully, the Golden Raspberry Awards (AKA Razzies) has released its shortlist for the worst movies and performances of the year. Now we know what NOT to watch, phew!

In fact, it looks as though Adam Sandler and 50 Shades Of Grey lead the pack with the most nominations for the unwanted prize. Oof!

Though, we can't be THAT surprised since 50SOG was slammed by the critics, despite making bank in the box office. Not to mention, Adam's Pixels is just the latest project from the funnyman to be taken down by the group.

In case you forgot, the Razzies are voted on by 900 members and the "winners" will be announced the day before the Oscars.

Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominees (below) and let us know if YOU think anyone is missing!

Elizabeth Banks, Natalie Dormer, Jena Malone, and Willow Shields were determined to go out with a bang and wore some of the prettiest dresses we've ever seen.

Natalie and Willow were total princesses in their strapless numbers, with Nat in a silver and gold Vivienne Westwood creation that would make Cinderella die of jealousy and Willow in a cream and gold Naeem Khan voluminous gown.

Elizabeth opted for a more fitted Dolce & Gabbana silhouette, proving that stripes can be just as fabulous as florals or fancy embroidery.

And, finally, Jena was a delicate beauty in a blush-toned Gauri and Nainika frock with fluttering ruffle accents.

Aren't you so totally enchanted???
