Power Rangers Opening In Malaysia Despite Gay Hero — They Even Changed Their Minds About Beauty And The Beast!

Looks like they learned their lesson!

After it was revealed one of the five teen heroes in Power Rangers was gay, fans in Malaysia started to get anxious. No, not because it bothered them — because their government could stop them from seeing the film!

After the country's ultra-conservative censorship board tried to cut FOUR MINUTES out of the live action Beauty And The Beast, Disney said hell no and straight up pulled the film.

That meant those who had already bought tickets to the box office record-breaker had to be refunded by Malaysia's major chains, TGV Cinemas and Golden Screen Cinemas.

But this time we guess the Malaysian government decided not to cut off their nose to spite the gays. Power Rangers will open in the country on Thursday, March 23, in all its rainbow-suited glory.

What's more, the country's Film Appeals Committee actually reversed the BatB decision as well, so the uncut musical will now premiere on March 30. Yay for progress! Kinda…

As usual, the way to a conservative's heart is through their wallet.

According to prosecutors, the two got into an argument about Medina's girlfriend, and it eventually escalated into a deadly attack.

Fast forward to Thursday, the actor pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter in a Lancaster, CA courtroom and faces up to six years in prison.

Although the 38-year-old was originally arrested on suspicion of murder, Medina avoided that charge which carries a sentence of 26 years to life in jail.

He will receive his punishment on March 30.

The First Power Rangers Trailer Was Just Released And It Is SUPER Dark!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersNostalgia

Remember the light, mildly funny, camp Power Rangers TV show from back in the day?!

Yeah, this is NOT that!

The first Power Rangers reboot trailer was released this morning, and it is gritty, dark, and clearly taking itself VERY seriously!

Related: Chris Hemsworth's Thor Gets A New Roommate In New Mockumentary!

With much of the trailer set at night, and lots of dramatic music, big explosions, and both battling and fleeing, well, we have a feeling we know what we're going to get, Chronicle-style, with this one!!!

Ch-ch-check it out (above), but if you were a fan of the TV show growing up, this is definitely NOT that — so be warned!

What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Reboots obviously ought to be sort of different from the original if only to catch interest and adjust to a new time, but is this too far gone from the original Power Rangers?!

Let us know your thoughts in the comments (below)! And get ready to see this thing in theaters on March 24, 2017!

Bryan Cranston Apologizes For Homophobic Comment Toward The Original Blue Power Ranger! See What He Said That 'Really Hurt' Billy!

no title

Bryan Cranston may be playing Zordon in the upcoming Power Rangers reboot, but one of the original rangers isn't the biggest fan of the casting!

That's because the Breaking Bad alum once allegedly made a homophobic comment about actor David Yost's portrayal as the OG blue ranger in the Might Morphin' Power Rangers TV series!

In a 2009 interview with IGN, the Emmy-winner referred to Yost's character Billy Cranston mockingly as "the fey one" (which means "effeminate") when joking that the blue ranger was named after him.

Yost, who publicly came out as gay in 2010, told NBC Out on Friday that he was "really hurt" by Cranston's comments.

While expressing mixed feelings about the actor's casting in the upcoming big screen reboot, he said:

no title

He is the one who… um, floats?

First the Power Rangers movie shocked with the addition of phenomenal actress and all-around classy lady Elizabeth Banks as villain Rita Repulsa.

Now the big screen update of the Saturday morning campfest has added none other than Emmys juggernaut Bryan Cranston!

The Breaking Bad star will be playing Zordon, the being who trains the Rangers — and who, you may remember, is just a giant floating head in a big tube.

Srsly, WTF is going on with this casting? Could this movie actually be… good?? Or will Bryan just do whatever it takes to provide for his family..? He tweeted:
