I have to say that this live action movie worries me...James Wong directs...Steven Chow Produces...87eleven do the stunts...Amalgamated Dynamics do effects, Hybride/cafe FX do visuals.., $100 Million Budget ...ok...could be good, but then No Krillin?, Piccolo is not green, Bulma is a weapons expert and Grandpa Gohan dies from Ninjas. ;)
Then there's Goku...Uncool and Unpopular at HIGH SCHOOL? what are they making him into...a second Peter Parker? (and it's Piccolo who tells Goku he's a saiyan)...um? :wacko:(...who tells him that the Dragonball universe is actually Japanese then?!)
I found this website with all the details...supposing it is real, it seems to be.
I hope they don't mess it up.
This Movie is a total *peeeeeee*
I mean.. since when Goku is a skiny boy?
Goku is THE man
I love him
destroy dragon ball D:
I have to say that what the movie people are doing to the characters and plot lines seem to be typical Hollywood screw-ups to suit themselves rather than the actual stories on which they base their film, some things should be set in stone or left alone you know? :banghead: I agree that this manipulation is frustrating, and the possibility that the dragonball universe becomes a Hollywood mockery is quiet large, this upsets me, I'm a huge Dragonball fan. I'm pretty much speachless as to what they seem to be doing with Goku, He's just too much of a huge character to be messed around with :mad:.

In reality, the true fans will always be upset at the movie adaptation, and Live action from anime or manga or both is a very tenuous thing to do, it probably will not work, although I really hope they can pull it off.
Which ever way it goes, I doubt it will destroy Dragonball as there is too much of a hardcore fanbase to allow this to happen.
Wo0t! I am definitely gonna see this!
This movie will be probably a success (economically speaking), although I think so far the movie sucks!!!! it really looks like Hallmark or HBO movie, I personally think is going to be awful, ...but lets face it...everybody is going to watch this movie, and the producers will be happy ...they don't care about been faithful to the real story, they are not thinking in the fans they just think about the money...
Somebody post something like... "so what, it doesn't matter it the movie sucks", or somethingl ike that, but it does matter, because some people have waited a long time for something like this!! and if the movie producer, director or whatever blew it off, there is not going to be another movie, thats it! if the movie sucks they won't take the risk of doing it again and different...there are some rare cases like the Hulk movies, where they kind of change the direction that the Hulk story were going to ...but if this movie sucks and probably will...and we all go to see it, they will probably make a new sucky second part and third ...so I think it does matter a lot because this movie could be the last time we see Goku searching for the 7 dragon balls...
I see why they changed the story to maybe appeal to a more mainstream audience but what they didn't think about is that the fans actually might want a "out there" story like the original was. I'll see it, but more than likely when it hits the cheap-o theater around here.
Transformers did so good because they didn't hold back. They made that movie amazing looking.
This DB movie looks like nothing special at all. It's one of those movies you wait to come out on dvd or TV. But Since it is Dragon Ball, people will go and see it, only reason. If this was a known movie, it would bomb hard. I will see this movie and hope for the best.
IF THEY MAKE DBZ< THEY BETTER SPEND EVERY CENT THEY HAVE AND TAKE THEIR TIME. I dont care if it takes 2 years... At least I will know they put some heart into their movie. I want that over whelming feeling of BADASS. Like the first time you watched 300, people came out after the movie feeling like they could fight anyone, lol. The movie looked so awesome, crisp.
I only hope for the best for now and later.

What annoys me is how they came up with a decently original idea and they had to get permission from Toriyama and make a non-Dragonball movie into a Dragonball movie, cause some Japanese dude thinks it's infringement? Toriyama should have just left them alone and let them call it whatever the heck they want, use their own character names, and use their own attack moves.
Hmm.. doesn't look like it will be much like the anime Dragonball at all. It doesn't look bad, though. It still looks like a movie worth seeing. Looks like they made it more "modern" and "relatable". It's just a shame that they didn't make a proper tribute to the original.. I mean, this Goku? He seems kind of wussy? I don't know.. of course, even that is just speculation, considering ALL that I've heard [and there are TONS of rumors floating around out there about this movie, there has been for quite some time now] you really can't be too sure until you watch the movie for yourself.
I think I will go see this one in theatres. Like I said, looks like a good movie. I just hope that they don't hack up this classic too much...

im gonna rent the movie when its out in dvd cuz i dont want to get anymore depress watching this movie at the cinema
2 ways they could have made it better is by using master myagi from the karate kid to play as master roshi which will be much better then chow yun fat
and last way is making the film into a cgi movie like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie.
and by the way i think piccolo isnt green
I think it is the worst idea ever. However, if they can make the fighting scenes as like the show, then I have no complaints.
I would rather want to see a Dragonball Z movie. That way Golberg could play Nappa. He could totally pull it off. I'm not too confident about Vegeta. After all, who would've want to have their hair straight up like that. THe only one I can really picture playing Vegeta would be that the Drift King from Tokyo Drift.
Well i think i have seen picolo's pic...but i cant find it now :(
looking forward to see this one coming.....
Didnt that guy who played Mr. Myagi died a few years ago?.......See they waited too long to make this and now a person who would've a made a perfect roshi is replaced with Fat who has to play a role that he isnt really suited for. This movie is goin to be crap just like all them other live action adaptation like Guyver, Fist of the North Star, Speed Racer, G-Savior, and all them other ones that I cant remember.

By the way, I think that is super uber fake.

I have not seen a successful DBZ cosplayer, therefore the movie cannot win.
i have found the very first trailer of the dragon ball movie
apparently its now called dragon ball evolution
find ANYBODY who looks exactly like the characters please.
Its honestly going to be impossible, the art they used is to....non human...its not even funny.
You don't know if this movie is going to suck or not. I will go see the movie, you know you guys will too, just to see if its good or not.
he exactly looks alike ^^
I'm really looking forward to this as well.
Like others have stated, I hope they pull it off well.
Once I see the release date in theaters, I'm taking the day off of work just to see it. :p
the fuuniest part for me in this Dragon Ball Z Live Action Movie is... Picollo is color yellow... XD:laugh:
i'll like to see it but i don't think it will be that good because some of the stuff in dbz will be realy hard to copy into a movie
hehehehehe you guys are going to love this, Goku's "Ozoro" form... we can all start crying now
We already had The Matrix: Revolutions, didn't we? If I wanted to watch a Dragonball live action movie I'd just watch the last thirty minutes of that.
Oh, and the movie has CAR WRECK AVOID AT ALL COSTS written all over it.
