Lionsgate has released the first look at Elizabeth Banks as Power Rangers villain Rita Repulsa.

Lionsgate's Power Rangers reboot retells the story of the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers TV series, in which five teenagers gain powers which they use to protect Earth from monsters unleashed by Banks's Rita Repulsa.

“It’s definitely a modern and edgy re-imagining of the original Rita Repulsa,” Banks told People. “We wanted to give her a backstory that connects her to the new Rangers.”

Banks also told People she’s most looking forward to “world domination.”

“I’ve never played a villain before, let alone an alien warrior.”

Power Rangers is scheduled to hit theaters March 24, 2017.
