This new surgical procedure could lead to lifelike prosthetic limbs

This new surgical procedure could lead to lifelike prosthetic limbs Medicine has progressed a lot since the Civil War, but amputations haven’t. Once a limb is sliced off, surgeons wrap muscle around the raw end, bury nerve endings, and often attach a fixed prosthesis that is nowhere near as agile as the flesh-and-blood original. Better […]

The upcoming Power Rangers movie is already an adaptation of a series that a lot of fans associate with the ’90s, but the people behind the film’s slightly bizarre aesthetic aren’t stopping their nostalgic nods there. If some new photos are anything to go by, Power Rangers will also have some ’90s-inspired styling cues for us to enjoy as well.

Thanks to IGN, we have our very first look at Bill Hader’s Alpha 5, the whiny robot that helps Zordon (Bryan Cranston) support the Rangers. Unlike the original Alpha 5 from the TV show, who had a big lightning bolt on his plastic chest, this one is wearing a stylish crop top that highlights his robot belly. If we didn’t know any better, we’d say he had just leapt out of an old Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera video!

(Image: Power Rangers/IGN)

IGN also has a shot from Alpha 5’s back, which allows us to see his very flat robot butt. We don’t remember the original Alpha 5 doing much sitting, so he didn’t really need a butt area, but maybe this indicates that the movie will have a scene where the new Alpha 5 sits on a chair backwards and “raps” with the kids about what it means to be a hero.

The Power Rangers Twitter account has also released some new photos of Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa, and though the ‘90s style isn’t quite as overt, she does seem to have an outrageously long rattail dragging on the floor in this picture:

Granted, it’s green and does look a little like her neck thing, but we’re going to assume it’s a rattail until Rita Repulsa herself emerges from a space pod after 10,000 years and tells us otherwise.

Power Rangers will be in theaters on March 24, 2017.
