This blast from the past is sure to pull oldies and youngsters alike to the cinemas. And for those that grew up imbibing the stories of the Power Rangers itâ€™s like taking a time machine back to the days of innocence. This remake follows the story of five ordinary teenagers that band together to form an extraordinary team when they learn that their small town is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. They soon discover that the fate of the world lies in their hands alone. Not only must they battle Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks), a powerful witch and former Power Ranger, but also their inner demons to come together as a team.
With a young cast and Bryan Cranston (of Breaking Bad fame) as their mentor Zordon, this film is all set to be a blockbuster. It will release at the end of March, and was produced for a budget that crossed the $100 million mark.
Samsung Presents the QLED TV
Thereâ€™s nothing more relaxing than zoning out in front of the TV. And now this will become even more pleasurable. Samsung Electronics recently unveiled its state-of-the-art TVs: QLED and The Frame at a global launch at the Carrousel de Louvre in Paris. â€œWe wanted to present our masterpieces surrounded by Old Masters,â€ Samsung executives said.
The QLED TV is like no other TV on the market. The colours, picture quality and 3-D effect are life-like. Furthermore, in one marvelous leap, they have designed a TV with only one thin wire and voice-controlled remote for all your devices. The TV itself is curved and can be placed even in the center of the room or hung right next to the wall with no gap. No more are there messy wires dangling, a plethora of remotes needed or are you restricted to place a TV near a wall limiting your furniture placement. If you are looking to upgrade, QLED TVs will be available in Pakistan after Eid. Best of all the price is not prohibitive. They are competitively priced and at a similar price point to regular TV sets.
The Frame is another remarkable new television. When it is turned off, it displays digital art on your wall. Nobody can tell that itâ€™s not a painting, but a TV hanging on your wall.
With these achievements, Samsung has demonstrated their leadership in defining the future of home entertainment with advanced cutting-edge technology. Be sure to keep an eye out for these when they hit the Pakistani markets and enhance your TV viewing pleasure.
