The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reboot that's not a reboot doesn't have a director, a cast, or many other components essential to making a major motion picture.
As of today, however, it does have something: a release date.
Lionsgate has scheduled the merchandising bonanza to open at a multiplex near you on July 22, 2016.
There's no way around it: With the tragic and shocking death of Robin Williams, the world in general and cinema specifically have lost something irreplaceable.
Williams was something truly rare, something truly special. He was a performer in the very best sense of the word, a joyous and exuberant comedian with an unstoppable drive to entertain, as well as an actor whose fearlessness could make a moviegoer's soul grow with his earnest vulnerability and hard-won wisdom.
He wasn't just a star. Robin Williams was a force, a charismatic whirlwind and a singular embodiment of exuberant childishness. He was capable not only of making us laugh uproariously, but of tapping into deep wellsprings of humanity within himself, sharing it with us, and reminding us that it's in us too.
Like so many of you out there, we here at IAR grew up on Williams. He was a fixture. He was simply always there, livening up otherwise dour movies and elevating good ones to greatness. Now he's gone. And he went in a fashion that will impact the feeling and meaning of every nuance of every performance he ever gave on film.
One of the wonderful things about movies, though, is that their power isn't diminished by the passage of time or the tumult of the now. We lost Robin Williams, but his films remain. We can still access and learn from his greatness and vitality. We can still appreciate Williams through the legacy of his work.
So, for our latest ROGUE 10, we put together a list of ten movies that we feel stand as testaments to his unique power as a performer, movies we'll revisit for years.
