Dragonball trailer

The trailer for DRAGONBALL (now apparently retitled DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION for some reason) is now online, and since I can't properly articulate my reaction, I will leave that to you.

The movie (adapted from the endless manga/anime) stars Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Ernie Hudson, Emmy Rossum and Chow Yun-Fat. James Wong (THE ONE, FINAL DESTINATION) directs the pointy hair and explosive punching. Check out the trailer at IGN.

still not sure but ...

Ok, so the first teaser that came out made me not want to see this movie at all regardless of enjoying the dragonball series as a child... it looked like Fast and the Furious meets Spy Kids... now that the new international trailer has come out... it's gradually looking a bit better....it still has that spy kids flare to it but it also has this Mortal Kombat thing going on as well ... so it does look a bit dated... i don't care... some of my most fond memories with movies are still the ones

GREAT.. if not... well atleast they tried and i can get it second hand at Blockbuster

Now all they have to do is change the word Dragonball also and all the character's names and it won't shit all over one of the best animes ever.

Also, on a side not, what's this 'Evolution' bullshit? Now it sounds like a shitty, X-men cartoon. The title 'Dragonball' was fine...

huh?

ya kno, the action look cool, dragonballish, but why the fuck did they replace the whole saiyan story with this chosen one bullshit. the most intriguing part of dragonball, the biggest catch, was that he was like superman and his backstory was to actually kill everyone but he hit his had and had amnesia etc. and whats this crap about some dudes makin dragonballs.
i'm not that into the show, but i know enough from watchin it a lot when i was a kid, and it seems they took out everything that

This looks infinitely better than i'd expected...
...and it still looks like a pile of shit. They're butchering the story, look, feeling, and characters of the original comic. Goku, what the hell? He was little kid, an innocent, awestruck by everything, excited by adventure. How the hell did he get changed into this brooding, moody loser? Piccolo seems all right, but damn, this looks bad... I'll stick with the manga, thanks.

Crappy so far...

1-I'd rather jerk myself off with a fist full of broken glass than pay good money to see this.

2- Speed Racer was underrated. I enjoyed it a lot.

3- Yun Fat needs to get back into his Tequila shoes.

Oh gyeawd - it's co-starring ERNIE HUDSON?!

His career is doomed.

I officially have no interest in this movie, now.

Bullet proof Monk 2? Ouch

This is another of those projects that for the life of me I can' figure out why the excellent Chow Yun-Fat is doing these garbage products. This looks like a 12 year old boys version of "Bratz" Terrible.

Frankly, it doesn't look that bad.

I mean it doesn't look any worse than that Jackie Chan/Jet Li movie that came out earlier this year.

that looked 140,349x better than I thought it would. Not bad, all things considered.

I don't think there's enough weed in the state of California to make me enjoy this movie, and there's alooot of weed here. Unless 45 minutes of this movie consist of screaming while in horse stance, glowing, and hair color changing, then it can't be called Dragonball.

anyone who compares the guys who gave u The Matrix work to the guy who gave you The One, is a FUCKING idiot and an ignorant moron. The only ones who hated speedracer are people who don't appreciate viseral art or people who haven't watched it and feel cool dogging it. SPEED RACER was infact one of the best movies this year and definately the most underated. It was visually amazing and very well executed...so stop the comparisson and as for this movie it looks like SHIT and from the time they

Not Ridiculous Enough!!!

this looks like shit. it should have been made in a style sort of that of the speed racer movie, but obviously instead made to feel like dragonball. this looks like a poor man's version of the mortal kombat movie. i am deeply sadden:(

i think i feel the worst for Rossum, shes easily too talented to be in this, Chow Yun-Fat i can excuse, maybe he wanted to buy a new house or something and this was a quick paycheck. also i think they missed their mark to ride the Dragonball money train, that was about 8 years ago when it was big in the US. after watching The One again this past weekend i dont see anything good coming of this film.

I guess they took the title evolution to heart, the trailer is way better than the original and what I was worried about has been fixed, Piccolo being green, I had heard he would eveolve further in the film and would reveal his true form/color, I gues those rumers were right.

I'll admit it I wasn't too keen on seeing this film but as a fan of the show and now the new movie trailer I'll give this film a chance and I will be seening it no matter the reviews or critics.

While never a DB, DBZ, or DBGT fan I respect the property and did enjoy a few arcs of the series (Cell saga, in particular). This trailer looks fine to me. The effects are cartoonish, the characters seem appropriately understated (truth be told, in the manga and anime they were only as "epic" as the current storyline was), and it's changed just enough to garner a reaction from source fans and the newly exposed alike.

You can't please anyone, and I think a Wachowski "Speed Racer" style

You can't please anyone, and I think a Wachowski "Speed Racer" style visuals would best be suited, but I think this will be okay. I'm not sure "fun" is the right phrase just yet, but it has the potential to be so... and, not to burst anyone's bubble, this flick is probably going to make a killing in Japan, and do modestly in the US- this is probably just the beginning.
