A new generation of fangirls and fanboys will be introduced to the concept of "Morphin' time!" when the new Power Rangers movie hits theaters this month. Starring a fresh new cast, the big screen reboot of the popular children's action show follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove -- and the world -- is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat.
Power Rangers will introduce western audiences to one of Asia's fastest rising stars, Chinese Canadian actor Ludi Lin, who makes his U.S. feature film debut as Zack, the Black Ranger. Filled with bravado and swagger, Zack is described as "tough and cool on the exterior but has many layers beyond his fearless appearance. He advertises everything about himself, except the truth, which makes him feel deeply inferior to all his peers."
Lin's television credits include roles in Netflix's Marco Polo, Level Up! and Holiday Spin. His Chinese film credits include the upcoming feature Come Across Love (不期而遇), Crazy in Love (疯富的爱, 2012), I'm Sorry, I Love You (对不起我爱你, 2013), A Servant of Two Masters (一仆二主, 2014), and Monster Hunt (捉妖记), which is currently the second highest-grossing Chinese film released to date.
