Rita Repulsa Chokes the Yellow Ranger in First Power Rangers Still
The Power Rangers reboot doesn't hit theaters for another eight months, but we already have the first official still from the movie. And while it's not going to be nearly as gritty or NSFW as Joseph Kahn's Power/Rangers, it still features some wall-cracking violence from Elizabeth Banks' Rita Repulsa:

Becky G, who plays Trini aka the Yellow Ranger, gave an update on production, stating that they were finished with principal photography and were going to do reshoots sometime soon. She also broke down the above fight scene between Trini and Rita:
