New D'ball trailers

DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION

So far, the marketing media for the upcoming anime adapted DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION has, let's say, underwhelmed. However, a new French trailer and some footage released on a Japanese tv show should do something to make you feel just a little better about the whole thing. Or, you know, not. They at least make the wise decision to use hyper-fast flash cuts so no one gets a chance to actually make out or retain what they're seeing. Check them out below. In the film, Justin Chatwin as Goku is on a quest to acquire the magical Dragonballs before the nefarious Lord Piccolo (James Marsters) gets his evil paws on them and uses them to take over the world. All this happens on April 8th.

These trailers give me a little bit of hope. I went from thinking the movie was going to be terrible to pretty good. The movie still won't be good, but I'll take pretty good anyday over bad

Well, since they're billing this as "Evolution", I'm taking it as a re imagining which is fine, I'm not against a little re imagining as long as it has purpose, so I'll refrain from judgment till I see it.

After all, if they made it just like the cartoon, it would be the silliest damn thing you ever saw.

When I was younger I really loved the original Dragonball and the first half or so of Dragonball Z, but then it got too caught up in constantly topping itself and tried way too hard to be hardcore. That said, I have no clue whether this will

A) Actually be decent
B) Be medicore, but not as bad as many think
C) Suck
D) Suck even worse than anyone ever expected

I can honestly see it going any of those ways, however I shall see it nonetheless.

no war chief

hmmm. the cartoon didn't look like this. goku wasn't in a saved by the bell high school, and he was an alien, not the "chosen one" so lame. the show seemed more gritty too. this looks too polished or fake. i mean.

Im not totally sure now

I was completely against this film at first but now these spots kinda made it look a little more like the tv show. I still have major doubts, though.

Look

No matter how much it gets bashed, I want to see this movie so bad. I expect it to be horrible, but the chance to see a $100 Million Kamehameha must not be missed.
