Ahead of the Lionsgate Power Rangers movie premiering in China on May 12th, a series of new posters have been released specifically catered to that market.

You might be asking just how important the Chinese premier is to the success of the Power Rangers movie? The live-action Warcraft movie which came out last year only made $160 million domestically, but the Chinese market prevented it from being a total flop bringing in $220 million in that region. So while the Power Rangers movie may have had lackluster sales domestically, the film could make it’s money back with the Chinese premiere.
