Dragonball poster

07.21.2008
A new poster for DRAGONBALL has emerged, and it is basically the first time anything from this movie has looked remotely relevant. If you've missed what's been happening with this movie, just imagine if every picture or poster released for THE DARK KNIGHT had just been Christian Bale chilling at the beach, or Gary Oldman eating sushi, and then suddenly a poster where he is dressed as Batman.

Extra Tidbit: Doesn't actually look that bad, does it?

casketmouth...

It's no more "mornonic" than the people claiming ethnicity is irrelevant, he okay as a "white" character...

In any event, you DO make a good point in that the Wachowski's at least had some good movies, so it was expected "Speed Racer" would be good as well.

retards who say ethinicity is irrelevant then lets make him black??!!! morons. The culture is set in Asia as much as Superman is a Caucasian JEW...get outta here with that BS. Goku should be portrayed by an Asian and that's that, but I will give it a chance. Only prob is at least wachowskis had a great line of films under their belt to give me hope in their ability to Turn an anime live action. They did a BRILLIANT job. As for This guy, his movies are not that great or visionary but rather

Sorry but this picture does nothing to change my perception on how this movie will turn out. I originally hated on ledger as Joker but he died shuttin my ass up, so maybe it'll work, but so far I have no reason to give a shit. At least pictures of joker surfacing were astounding.

Goku is an alien as you mentioned, so his ethnicity is irrelevant. However, suddenly ethnicity becomes an issue with you or even skin color when a non-white is brought up?

You DO realize that there are many dark-skinned Asians, and even some "white" people with varying hues; and fair-skinned "black" people right?

So, you believe if a black male (or even a dark-hued Asian--as Indians, some Japanese, Chinese or even Hispanics have varying skin tones) tried out for the role, he should have

So, you believe if a black male (or even a dark-hued Asian--as Indians, some Japanese, Chinese or even Hispanics have varying skin tones) tried out for the role, he should have been bypassed for his race or skin tone.

However, a white person should be allowed because suddenly ethnicity doesn't matter. (And maybe, depending on the skin tone, you'll allow an Asian to play the role, but NOT an Asian, or Asian Indian who is dark! That's wrong).

Interesting...a double standard.

"Whites only...!"

or

"If you have the right skin color...a non-white may be allowed in the role."

Interesting...! Sounds similar to the early days of Hollywood. (And even more interesting, the characters of Dragonball z were based on Asian lore, so you would think there would be a big Asian influence on the film!)

Goku has light skin and dark hair. Those are the only ethnic clues we are given. Any mix of asian, caucasian, central-european, or the like could fit the bill. He's clearly not black, indian, persian, or any ethnicity of dark-skinned people.

Let's not mention that travesty. Please.

And, "Steel" was just that: Steel. Not Kal-el aka Clark Kent aka Superman. (The film wasn't even a faithful rendition of the comic).

erh whatever

Never read the books or seen more then 10 minutes of the cartoon so I've no comment on the movie.

The people commenting on the linked website seem to think it's just shy of an orgasim. Plants or are fans polarized by potential suck?

So if this is next years Speed Racer, it will be awesome, yet not make that much money.

Okay... Honest question, all jokes aside... Is that meant to be Goku or Gohan?

Isn't Goku supposed to be western looking?

Every time I've had the misfortune of seeing anything Dragonball related, that character has always been drawn with the stereotype western look that the Eastern artists draw with huge big eyes.

Anyway, isn't Goku just the same character as Monkey from the 70's TV show, essentially? Its the same story!

I don't know how

this movie is supposed to be anything other than a complete disaster. Emmy Rossum looks very fine as always, but still...that is not enough for a ticket...

Red4, I'm looking forward to a black actor portraying Superman...

"Goku is from another planet, just like Superman. Goku is merely his adoptive Earth name. It has nothing to do with his ethnic appearance."

Well, maybe we'll see a black actor portray Superman someday since Superman is an alien, and "Superman" is merely an adoptive Earth name; and it has nothing to do with his ethnic appearance.

Will Smith is obviously out since he already portrayed "Hancock"...(Hmmm...Hmmmm...A 6' black actor, who is able to portray a mild-mannered reporter

I wouldn't mind seeing a hot Asian actress as Lois Lane, as well.

Goku is from another planet, just like Superman. Goku is merely his adoptive Earth name. It has nothing to do with his ethnic appearance.

But either way, DB and DBZ are my bibles; and this atrocity is blasphemy.

No. Just no.

Looks like one of those kids from High School Musical holding a jawbreaker filled with nitroglycerin.


Hey.
Think they'd do a movie where the kids from High School Musical were incinerated in a gigantic explosion due to improperly stored nitroglycerin?

I could pitch this idea.

AWFUL

I'm not talking about bad. I'm talking awful. For one, how the hell is a guy named Goku, an ultra white boy?!

I guess its the same casting people that that it was a swell idea to cast Jean Claude Van Damme as the ultra-American Colonel Guile.

Did I mention this is awful?

I shudder in fear. It's like Mortal Kombat...but worse. Ouchie to the film. Did anyone else see those gawd-awful shots of Chow Yung Fat as Master Roshii? I keeled over laughing the ridiculousness of it. I'll probably hit the $5 morning showing just for good fangirl measure but other wise....bleech.

Nope....still looks like it's going to the dogs. I'm not even sure why this is live-action. With CGI and full-3D going berserk everyday (watch the new God Of War 3 Teaser for PS3 and you'll know what I'm talking about), they could have very well made this a fully 3D animated feature which I dare take a bet would've kicked any and all sorts of ass. I'm no DBZ fan, but I know enough to say that it has a huge fan following (mostly in Asia) and a lot of lore to it, so why f*ck it up with Chatwin
