New D'Ball posters

Dec. 12, 2008by: Omar Aviles

So the first full length trailer for the now renamed DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION recently came online courtesy of IGN and it was as goofy-looking and bizarre as most of you were probably expecting. IGN also debuted four new posters with the spiffy new title and one thing's still clear, Emmy Rossum as Bulma is hot. In the film, Justin Chatwin plays Goku, a young warrior who must acquire the mysterious Dragonballs before the villainous Piccolo (James Marsters) gets his hands on them and does all kinds of evil shit with them. The evolution begins April 8th. Click through to check out all the posters.

I know nothing about Dragon Ball, but wouldn't it be easier if this was in animation?

I'm excited to see this movie come out! That way JoBlo will stop reporting on it. But all kidding aside, I'm stoked to see this. I love Jackie Chan and Jet Li, and seeing the two of them work together to train the Chosen One... it's gonna be a great movie. Wait... this isn't Forbidden Kingdom is it?

@daydreamer

The Wachowski's aren't doing this movie, wtf are you talking about? if they did then it would have actually been faithful to the source material, and entertaining.

he's not even a saiyan anymore? he's just the cheesey overused "chosen one" are you fucking kidding me.
the coolest thing about this show was that he was a saiyan fighting to save humanity from a saiyan invasion

Chill out

Its just a trailer 2 minute and 30 sec of about 2 hour movie so yea you cant really judge a movie by a trailer so stop hating about the movie on how its not related to dragon ball at all. And wait for the movie to come out and watch it for what it is and not going in thinking how bad its going to suck. And now a days a lot of people are trying to make movies as realistic as possible even if they are pretty much out there like with energy blast and what.

P.S I will hate on one thing goku's

Umm, 1) They already said early on, no super-saiyan.
2) I see James Marsters being the only [link] part of this movie. Was it really that hard to give him antennae?

just saw the trailer

Yeah yeah yeah, we all know that this movie is gonna fucking SUCK. I don't need to add that.

HOWEVER, I bet anybody a trillion goddamn dollars that if from day 1 it was known that this flick was gonna be in Japanese instead of English, but other than that, everything else was identical to what we've seen so far, there would be tonnes of anime fanboys saying "omg thisisgonnabeawesome *jizz*"

ehhhhh

was excited to hear about this movie coming to the big screen but now from seeing what they have so far, i'm not so thrilled. i love james marsters, and people can talk crap about him all day but i'm a die hard spike fan. i'm glad to see him do his thing again as a villian. also chow yun fat is kick ass. after saying that, i think this may be a big waste of talent unfortunately

Wow...

They're really keeping James Marsters out of all the publicity. C'mon, I wanted to see Spike run any career he might've had left into the ground...

it is all about expectations. if this was some no name sci-fi, fantasy flick, (in which case, admittedly i would not have had the same budget but whatever) people would be talking about how cool some of the effects looked whil not minding how stupid the story might be too much. but you call it DBall, everyone expects a decent live action version of their childhood anime, at which point you come out with this and it makes every flaw, every discrepancy, every stupid plot point that much worse and

this is the kind of movie that baffles me. 1. who in their right minds ever thought that a live action DBall film would work. 2. the story, the characters, the atmosphere, the surroundings, .. nothing at all resembles Dragon Ball except Goku's clothes, and that's about it. 3. if they were going to change the story completely, change the characters completely, and all in all make this not at all what DBall should be, what the hell is the point in making it in the first place. if they would have

Evolve?

I guess the only way they can call it Evolution is if he does in fact find out he's Saiyan in this movie... and turns into a huge friggin ape......apart from that the Subtitle of Evolution isnt really needed... anyone who'se watched the show before knows basically what goes on...
