Mattel and Dolphin Entertainment have released the first US trailer for their big screen adaptation of the once popular action figure Max Steel.
It was only a week ago they released the international trailer for the long-awaited movie that’s been playing hide and seek from being released since its filming wrapped in 2014.
Check it out:
Let’s be real, it looks a lot like a Power Rangers spin-off for the White Ranger, who didn’t know he was a Power Ranger. Even the suit Max wears looks like it’s from the new Power Rangers film, I wonder if the costume designer worked on both films.
Max Steel Synopsis:
Max Steel is an in-depth “origin” story packed with captivating characters and fast-paced action. The plot chronicles the adventures of Max McGrath and his mother have just moved back to Copper Canyon, the town in which Max’s scientist father died in a mysterious accident shortly after Max was born. As Max adjusts to his new school, things get complicated when his body starts to generate strange energy flare-ups that he can’t control.
At first a confusing mix of inconvenient and exhilarating, this unpredictable power eventually grows too intense for Max to handle, causing him to distance himself from those around him including the girl he likes, Sofia. Eventually the energy pushes him to the verge of fatal combustion. In the nick of time, a techno-organic extraterrestrial named Steel, who has been secretly monitoring Max’s progress, saves him just before he loses consciousness. The two discover that when joined together they can control the energy and harness it into superhuman strength – and that when apart, neither can survive for long.
As these two unlikely friends learn to accept their connected fates, they begin to uncover secrets surrounding the death of Max’s father. As they dig deeper, they soon find themselves hunted by an unforeseen enemy bent on capturing Max and Steel for a sinister agenda of destruction. Uncertain who to trust, they will have to work together to find the truth, and fight the mysterious forces threatening our world.
