I have a feeling when FOX releases the rights to show the facial make up which the artist on their site said they couldn't yet it won't look like this:

I have high hopes for this film and hope it is better than any of the Mortal Kombat movies. Hopefully they can do it justice. Either way I will see this film.
In the meantime the Jackie Chan/Jet Li film the Forbidden Kingdom looks like it has a Journey to the West type story. Can't wait.

man i have a bad feeling about it.
the DBZ characters are going to be hard to make look like the show in live action. The FX will be easy with all the CGI.

we all have to see i guess.

dragonball z holds the record of the anime that's being translated in evry Language in the world.

thats awsome !!

I remember I went to colombia one summer for vacation and man DBZ was on evryday at 6pm and all my cousins ran to the TV to watch it.
It was funny I had a DBZ T-shirt on and goku was super sayin and my cousins where like who is that blonde guy on your shirt.
They where just at the sayin saga so they had no idea what a super sayin was.

That should be noted. Its NOT Dragonball Z which most are used to. Its an adaptation of the original Dragonball series. I find it interesting about the comments about Justin Chatwin being too young, when in the series this is being adapted from I believe Goku was actually 10.

Should be interesting to see how close they get to the original since the looks are already changing and I doubt they'll be a tail on Goku at all....

It is probably a combination of the two, since really, DBZ was just a continuation of DB... in the stills, he is obviously in his late teens or early twenties, which would be more DBZ time-frame.

I read a script review not too long ago. I can't remember the details (if it was even a legit review) but I think this is basically Dragonball/DBZ ala Smallville.

I don't actually have a problem with that. I love DBZ but it certainly could not be translated directly. I'm expecting it to be completely bastardized, but as long as I get to see a live action Kamehameha I think that warrants a ticket from me.

Then again, I once thought the mere sight of Optimus Prime transforming onscreen would be enough to make me happy. So I've been wrong before...

Combining DB and DBZ is a disaster in the making. I really hate it when Hollywood rush things and leave out the good stuff.

Combining DB and DBZ is a disaster in the making. I really hate it when Hollywood rush things and leave out the good stuff.

From what I have read it is not going to be a combination of Dragon Ball and Dragonball Z, it will be straight Dragonball. From what I have heard it will be a combination of the Piccolo Daimaoh Saga when Son Goku was in his early teens and the Ma, Jr Saga when Goku was in his mid to late teens.
Here is what I read -
Piccolo will be trying to track down the Dragon Balls with the help of Pilaf and his henchmen ala the Piccolo Daimoah Saga. The good guys will be trying their best to track down the Dragon Balls first to prevent Piccolo from gaining the Dragon Balls and taking over the Earth.
The only difference is that instead of Tenshinhan, Chaozu and Kamesennin being the 3 heroes trying to stop Piccolo the list will now include Son Goku, an older Goku at that. The look they are going for with Goku being this young has to be the end of the series when Goku was in his late teens and he defeated Ma,Jr (Piccolo) for the last time at the Tenkaichi Budokai.
Personnally if they are going to do a Dragon Ball movie this would be the Saga to do considering the top villain for the entire series of Dragon Ball is also the main villain, Piccolo. The only difference is they changed the age of Goku and had him at the forefront of the fight, not just show up at the end and save the world. The only problem I will have is if they call this Dragon Ball and have Goku go Super Saiya-jin in the movie. That would be crazy.

I read somewhere a while ago that there would be a trilogy. The first film being Dragon
Ball with Younger Goku in a Piccolo Sage style movie, the second being a Dragon Ball Z with Vegeta coming to earth something along the lines of Saiyan Prince and the third being the Freiza saga. I'd be happy with that myself.

DBZ could never itself be translated directly into film....the sagas last so long with so much in them building that they'd be nine hour films....I'm worried about this one but am willing to withhold judgment until I see a trailer or two.

Yeah I don't have big expectations for it but I LOVE Dragon Ball so I will certainly see it. If they make a trilogy that would be great! We'll see how it goes.

If anything comes out of this I hope it brings DB's popularity back to the forefront and maybe we'll get a new series after this all...or perhaps a "re-imagining" of DB,DBZ,DBGT.

The anime HAD to drag the Sagas out so long with filler stuff because the mangas covered it all almost TOO quick to fill a usual 26 Japanese Episode "Season". The movies would cut the fat and get to everything quickly.

Yes they were certainly "too long", but that's how it had to go for TV. But sometimes it's worth it. I'm all hyped again on DBZ I bought all the Season sets and re-watching them is some fond memories. I'm on the Frieza Saga right now but waiting for Goku to finally arrive on Namek during the Ginyu Saga was all the much sweeter when he finally did...because it took SOOOOO long and built your excitement and eagerness that when he finally got there I swear I was giddy like a school-girl. It was WORTH the wait.

I really have to get the season sets. I never got to see the ending of the Majin Buu saga and everything that came after it. Cartoon Network moved it from late night back to early afternoon and I just never got around to finishing it! I feel so unworthy... :monkey2

...but at least I've still got several episodes to look forward to watching for the very first time!!! :rock

But see, that wasn't the end because Dragonball GT started up almost immediately if I remember correctly. The original run of DBZ had the preview for GT at the very end of the last DBZ episode.

lcummins, I agree with you 100%. If they did this the same way they did Ex Machina it would look amazing.
I also agree with you that if you took a room full of Dragonball fans, a six pack of beer, a pencil and pad of paper you could crank out a movie based on one Saga, in this case the Piccolo Daimaoh Saga, that would be 2 hours or less but include all of the best aspects of the Saga. They do it in Japan all the time.
There are plenty of series that do an hour and a half to two hour movie that is based on a fraction of the series but include all the major events. Just look a the Fist of the Northstar movie from 1986. It is less than 2 hours but includes most of the best parts of the first half of the series.
I agree that this film might be horrible, but making a great movie based on Dragon Ball, in my opinion, can be done.

They made two movies out of each season of GITS:SAC, but I'm not sure how that condensed it that much... there was a lot in each episode! :google

Here is the weird thing about Dragonball: Grand Tour.....Akira Toriyama had very little to do with the series. He designed the character looks including the Super Saiyan 4 designs and set off the premises to be like the original Dragonball where it is comedic in tone. They starting working on it towards the end of DBZ but then he dropped out I believe harboring creative differences. I know he said he wasn't happy about the Business Man Gohan and depowered Goten..... Many hardcore DBZ fans don't even consider it part of the series in a weird Expanded Universe type of deal.....

I am one of those fans who don't consider DBGT as connon because Toriyama really had very little to do with the series. I believe his bad experience with Bandai on DBGT is one of the reasons he is tentative to do anymore Dragon Ball stuff.
Plus, if you look at DBZ as a whole, the series should have ended at the death of Frieza. Toriyama went wild with the Cell Saga, tried to change the focus of the series with Gohan as the star in Great Saiya Man and ended the series with his stamp when Son Goku flew off with Uub at the one and only Tenkaichi Budokai in DBZ.
DBGT has its good and bad parts but if they let Toriyama has his way it probably would have been very different.

04-10-2008, 10:20 PM
I believe I've read that Toriyama definitely wanted the series to move from Goku to Gohan and have him come into his own especially setting the stage that Gohan should have been more powerful then Goku or any other Saiyan with how fast he achieved SS2. The popularity of Goku and the overshadowing of Gohan made him change suit. Its also been rumored that he wanted to include SS4 in during the Buu saga but rewrote it all and included it in the initial plannings of DBGT. Personally, I absolutely hate DBGT except for the SS4 transformations because I believe its a nice natural progression but its the relationship with Bandai, you're right, that stopped him from doing anything past the DB Christmas Special which dealt with Goku's great-grandson.

Have you ever read Neko Majin Z? It is Toriyama at his best. The main character is a cat demon that was trained by Son Goku. It is more comedy than martial arts but includes new Saiya-jins, Frieza's son who looks really cool and a guest appearance by Son Goku himself!!
I know right now Toriyama has sworn off of Dragon Ball but who knows, in 10 to 20 years he might want to revisit everyone's favorite Kung-Fu/Sci-Fi/Fantasy Epic.

Also, I like to compare Goku to Superman just because the similarities are there and Toriyama has admitted to using Superman as a inspiration for DBZ. When it comes to Gohan taking over for Goku after the defeat of Cell it was very similar to when Superboy became the main focus in the Death Of Superman. I loved Superboy, but you were always wondering when Supes would be back. He is the star, even though Gohan is Goku just with more brains and less natural fighting ability.
I also like to compare it to when Ben Reilly took over as Spider-Man for Peter Parker in the Clone Saga. Same powers, slightly different look, even the same voice. It's just, you want the star back. The story is better when they are together. Like peanut butter and chocolate.

Didn't Toriyama have little-to-nothing to do with DBGT? I think I remember reading that he did the initial character designs...but thinks like SSJ4 were NOT his design.

Plus he does not consider DBGT as part of his canon. I remember reading that the MMO Dragon Ball game will be much more in line as the DBZ follow-up than GT since Toriyama is directly involved with the development of the game.

You are absolutely right, DBGT is not considered cannon on the Toriyama front. I can't wait to see what will happen with Dragonball Online. Maybe a new series?

This goes into the same category as X-Files 2 - I never in my life expected it to exist, so how bad can it be? I have absolutely no expectation for it and even if it's terrible, I'm going to probably enjoy some aspect of it. Too bad there's no CGI Oolong. We get Yamcha, but no Oolong?

They did get the Blue Suit right. Remember from the get go this film was based on the original Dragonball not Dragonball Z. The argument that was used as I read on one thread is the the DB adventure was while Goku was a kid and then DBZ picks up at Goku's adulthood so they moved the DB story up in age.

8 Ways They're Going to ^^^^^k Up the Dragonball Movie
Posted at 5:04 AM Jul 11, 2008
By Bryan Hartzheim

Stand In?
http://www.toplessrobot.com/justin_chatwin_goku-thumb.jpg



We’ve now seen the first poster of the live-action Dragonball movie, and it is not satisfactory. Let’s start with the good: they got the number of stars on Goku’s original Dragonball correct. And now the bad: Bulma looks like Claire from Resident Evil, Master Roshi looks like Chow Yun Fat wearing a Hawaiian shirt, Chichi looks like nothing, Goku looks like he’d be at home at a bro bar, and Mai—who gives a ^^^^ about Mai? At best, she was a minor comic foil to Pilaf’s antics. She doesn’t throw a punch in the whole comic series. Worst of all is how Goku holds his Dragonball like Yamcha’s weak-ass “super move,” sokidan.

This does not look good. Next thing, we’ll be getting Krillin totally written out of the movie and replaced by some random asshat. Wait, this has already happened, you say? This movie is shaping up to be one giant ass-eating piece of suck. Before things get any worse, we’ve assembled a must-have list of elements for the movie to retain from the series in order to keep the spirit of the original Dragonball intact. That’s right, the original series (the arc this movie is being based on); no “It’s over nine-thousaaaaaand!” Z bull^^^^ here. Not including a single one of these things will result in something significantly worse than Dragonball GT.

8) No Gratuitous Shots of Bulma’s Boobies
http://www.toplessrobot.com/8%20Bulma.png
By last count, Bulma bares her bust at least three times to various horny males, including the time Oolong changes into her to show her vanilla pudding bags to Master Roshi (she also does one emphatic flash of her bottom half, for good measure). Yes, before she became relegated to fixing broken Dragon Radars and sporting groovy new hairstyles of the day, Bulma was the series resident fan service who flashed us more than a drunken college chick in Girls Gone Wild (well, nearly as much). To be deprived of her rack for a sissy PG-13 rating would be a disservice to any red-blooded male and many rugged, rack-appreciating females (God bless you gals!). Emmy Rossum’s shirt should come down at least twice, with close-up of Yamcha's nosebleeds when appropriate.

7) Starring More Svelte Femme Fatales than Testosterone-Induced Warriors
http://www.toplessrobot.com/7%20male%20cast.jpg
On that note, seriously, the entire Dragonball series has like, two legitimate female fighters, one of whom is an android. Even including the movies, the world of Dragonball is not a female-friendly place. It’s a Darwinian landscape where women are shoved to the margins, and in those margins make rice balls for the hungry warriors. We don’t care what women are thinking about, unless it’s about how their men are so difficult to deal with—as they should be, the world-saving bad-asses that they are. So why does the poster have more chicks than dudes on it? Where the hell are Krillin, Tienshinhan, and all of Piccolo’s instrument-named henchmen? Why is Mai suddenly his right-hand “man”? This just smacks of marketing deception and equal opportunity employment. The fact is, in Dragonball, the women can’t do it too. Get Chichi back in the house making Gohan a geek; again, pull Bulma’s shirt down all the way to her ankles; and if we must include Mai, at least “reinvent” the series with a little lesbian action with Lunch in both her incarnations (is she even in this movie? No? Blasphemy!). Please, ladies, let us guys have this one and just go and eat chocolate and sip chardonnay or whatever it is y’all do together on a Friday night.

6) Making Goku More Like Gohan than God
http://www.toplessrobot.com/justin-chatwin-dragonball.jpg
http://www.toplessrobot.com/6%20Gohan-Study-thumb.GIF
Speaking of Chichi, all indications of story synopses point to a sad, sad premise of the movie: Goku is a high school student. Goku is a simple, generous soul, and probably the strongest manga character who ever lived. He is not, however, a student. Goku hates school, or, at least, he can’t read. We’ve never seen him read anything other than a Dragon Radar, and we’re not about to start with any of that learning nonsense now. Save the school story arc until the mentally-weak Gohan (that's him above) enters the story. Leave Goku, eternal savior and representative of the little guy (remember, he is the lowest level of Saiyan) as he is.

5) Replacing the Japanese Music with Generic '80s Metal

Man, Dragonball had some great music didn’t it? Of course, I’m talking about the original Japanese mood music, not the bastardized American metal rock. Don’t believe me? Compare the intros. First, the Japanese original Dragonball theme song:

It gets you pumped for the action and journey, with inspirational lyrics like “The world is itself a giant treasure chest,” and “Let’s break through the sky on cloud machines” that testify to the adventure of the search for seven magical orbs from God. The American song, on the other hand:

A bunch of ^^^^^^^s screaming “Rock the Dragon!” to wailing guitars like Ultimate Warrior’s intro music. It’s a little catchy in a mindless chant sort of way, but we’re taking the “mystical” quotient down several notches with this kind of stuff.

The Mike
07-12-2008, 12:05 AM
Part 2:

4) Creating Original Characters for the Movie
http://www.toplessrobot.com/4%20paikuhan-thumb.jpg
Original characters created apart from the author’s intentions are never a good idea. That’s how creatively-challenged anime TV series always ^^^^ up the original manga – they include unnecessary, unmotivated characters who have no relevance in the grander story arc, but can fill up precious screen time by stalling us while the manga’s creator thinks of new ideas. Hence, bland and derivative characters like Pikkon (or Paikuhan, above), the robot on Kaio’s tiny planet, and every filler character in Naruto. The movie is already including lame “schoolmates” of Goku’s named Weaver and Texas Battle. These characters should not have any role whatsoever in the movie other than to die swift, grotesque deaths, ala assassin Tao Pai Pai's tongue-into-the-temple. That being said, we don’t need every single dead member of the Red Ribbon Army either (just General Blue—he’s hilarious!). Speaking of dead characters, making Master Mutaito into Sifu Norris, played by Ernie Hudson, just sounds plain retarded, as does this description according to DB the Movie: “Male, late 50s—early 70s, noble and intelligent man, regardless of race or nationality.” Let me get this straight: you mean to say he’s intelligent despite his race and nationality? Wow, imagine that! Racist xenophobes.

3) Making Yamcha and Yajirobe Cool
http://www.toplessrobot.com/3%20yamcha2-thumb.jpghttp://www.toplessrobot.com/3%20yajirobe-thumb.jpg
Okay, so it appears that no animal characters are going to be included in the film, hence robbing us of an Oolong vs. Puar shape-shifting derby. (On a side note, we submit that Oolong and Puar make the best Dragonball slaves. You could make them change into every hot celebrity who ever lived and have sex with them – in Oolong’s case, however, only in three-minute quickies. Or you could send one to work everyday while you lie at home and have sex with the other one’s celebrity likeness. The possibilities are endless.) But with Piccolo as the main adversary, Vegeta not yet in the story, and Krillin, Goku’s BEST FRIEND, inexplicably written out of the entire movie, we might be seeing a lot more of Yajirobe and Yamcha, two of the most laughably weak characters who’ve ever lived on the combustible Dragonball earth as Goku’s posse. We love them, but they must be used as comic relief, if at all.

Yajirobe is, to quote Urban Dictionary, “a ^^^^^-ass character in the Dragonball series who pretty much does nothing except eat and give the other fighters senzu beans.” Perfectly said; he’s a ^^^^ing coward. But Yamcha looks like he’s going to enjoy some underserved bad-ass status when in reality he’s probably the most pathetic character in the entire series. Did you know that if you do something sad but hilarious like fall on your ass in a Japanese gym class, the other kids will say you pulled a Yamcha? (Check out this Japanese “tribute” to Yamcha’s efforts.) We’re talking about a character who, after his colleagues learned elaborate fireballs, sound-piercing energy blasts, and razor-like slicing beams, still thinks he can get by with the “Wolf Fang Fist.” Can’t anyone do the “Wolf Fang Fist”? It’s just a bunch of punches and kicks. Even when Yamcha does something more complex like a Kamehameha blast or spirit ball, he manages to ^^^^ it up somehow and get killed or maimed right after. I could go on and on about Yamcha.

2) Kamehameha Abuse
http://www.toplessrobot.com/2%20kamehameha.jpg
For all the jokes about Dragonball being a one-dimensional anime and manga series where the characters only use Kamehameha blasts to kill each other, they’re simply unfounded. Only two battles in the entire manga series have been decided by a Kamehameha: the Cell saga, and one early on where Goku turns a giant octopus into takoyaki (it’s true; look it up). The anime series uses Kamehameha blasts considerably more, but again, TV series always screw with the original creator’s intent. That being said, Kamehamaha blasts, while they must be doled out incrementally and with caution, need not be the end-all either. Goku and co. have finished off opponents by slicing off their heads; flying jump kicks and head butts to the abdomen; razor-blade beams cutting bodies in half; spontaneous combustion; delayed combustion; energy collected from the planet; turning people into cookies; and by switching bodies with frogs. Let’s not forget any of that invention.

1) No Fighting Tournaments
http://www.toplessrobot.com/1%20fighting%20tournament-thumb.jpg
Do you know the rumored story of how Akira Toriyama nearly ended Dragonball barely a couple dozen episodes into its initial run? Apparently, audiences weren’t digging the mix of martial arts and humor following Toriyama’s mega-gag manga Dr. Slump, so Toriyama was instructed by his editors at Shonen Jump to end the damn thing. Toriyama thought to himself that if he’s going to go out, he’s going out with a bang, and decided to pit all of his characters against each other in an elimination-style fighting tournament. The rest, as you know, is history, and the movie needs to incorporate this history by having at least one grand fighting tournament, and also having Wayne Knight or Dom DeLuise play that filthy ^^^^er Bacterian. You know, there are not nearly as many good obese actors as there used to be.

The Mike
07-13-2008, 10:46 PM
He cared about DB until Z ended, helped the character design of DBGTT, but willing threw his hands in the air at that point and actually was in the works to do a whole new Dragonball series that focused on his (Goku) great-great grandson who was also named Goku. It was in a Christmas special that was put out a few years after DBGT ended but he never completed work on it. There are grumblings with the new movie coming out that he is going back to work on it but its still just grumblings.

No Super Saiyan for You?
08/25/08

Fox is apparently on a roll here with fans of the comic world.

First, there's the whole Watchmen debacle, that has fans ready to behead the powers that be over at Fox. Now there's rumors that the suits at Fox are less than impressed with the progress the Dragonball movie is making thus far. The film's already been pushed back to April of 2009, and now there's an alleged push to just drop the whole project.

Filmjunk.com seems to think that it could be a power move to pressure director James Wong to deliver better product, but with a supposed budget of $100 million dollars, a great deal is at stake for the property. Additionally, without a showing at San Diego Comic-Con, it's difficult to imagine what they've done as being "fan-pleasing". We'll see how it plays out, but with Stephen "Shaolin Soccer & Kung Fu Hustle" Chow at the helm, it should be pretty interesting…shouldn't it?


That report seems to be contradictory to this one doesn't it?

Dragonball Trailer Coming in October
Source:ComingSoon.net
August 26, 2008


ComingSoon.net has learned that 20th Century Fox will debut the first trailer for Dragonball in theaters on October 17 with the studio's video game adaptation Max Payne, starring Mark Wahlberg. We'll have to wait and see whether Fox will release the trailer online earlier that week.

Opening on April 10, Dragonball is written/directed by James Wong and stars Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Jamie Chung, Emmy Rossum, Eriko Tamura, Joon Park, Chow Yun-Fat, Texas Battle, Randall Duk Kim and Ernie Hudson.

Dragonball is adapted from the manga created by Akira Toriyama. It was also turned into a Japanese anime series that played all over the world.

Goku didn't really bulk up until all through Dragon Ball Z with his extensive training. Yeah he is supposed to be real muscular but doesn't build it up until later and you can see this in the series. In the original Saiyan Saga he isn't all buffed up and this movie is supposed to be the start of it all.

Just go into this movie expecting nothing, you might be surprised with some of the scenes. We'll always have the original material and I never really cared if they made a live-action movie or not, so this is a nice bonus to me.

what a waste of resources this film is. its an insult to every dragonball fan. every single character looks ridiculous in this movie and the plot summary is crap. there are times when a seemingly bad movie decision turns out to be good (people complaining about ledger being cast as the joker), but this is not one of those times.

Yeah even if the movie tanks, Emmy's Bulma is gonna be a big hit with anime convention goers and cosplayers, no doubt.

Anyway, I'm actually looking forward to the movie. I'll go see it even if it turns out to be a cheesefest. As far as fan expectations go at the moment, there's nowhere to go but up, right?

I have to back solidsnake up on this one. Dragonball is indeed one of the greatest anime of all time. It's been out for decades in Japan and its fan base is still undeniable (just take a look at Dragonball merchandising over in Japan.) While it may not be AS big here in the states, it still has a strong following. Before I begin to judge anymore of the movie though, I'll have to wait and see it for myself. *keeps fingers crossed.* The mere fact that it's hitting the silver screen is enough for me to buy a ticket. (The fact that I'm a uber-Dragonball/-Z/-GT fan probably helps a little too. :lol) And not to mention James Marsters (ie. Buffy's Spike) is Piccolo. :banana

Dragonball fans should recognize the giant monkey above as Goku in his "Oozaru" state; it's one of the bat^^^^ insane things about Dragonball and DBZ that has made it so endearing to fans around the world. Now, a picture has appeared of what could very well be Goku in his Oozaru state from the live-action DB movie.

A clever journalist might say that Fox's adaptation is "monkeying around" with the original anime.

I pretty much hate most live adaptations of animes and I doubt this will be any different. I used to be a HUGE DBZ fan back in the day but after the Frieza saga it just got a little repetative. The stories were almost always the same, it's just you had a new villain in each saga who would always hand Gokou's ass to him untill Gokou transformed into a new SS level only have the villian transform to once again hand Gokou's ass to him again only to have Gokou eventually kill said villian of with a Spirit Bomb or Kamehameha. But still I guess thts part of the charm of DB/Z/GT.

That's sad to here, esp. when it's towards a series that's been named "the greatest action cartoon of all time." It's also the most sucessful anime ever in terms of merchandise sales, other misc. marketing etc.

Now, I'm not saying that the movie will live up to the franchise, but the franchise itself is definitely a respectable one in my opinion. And I'd say there's a few million other people that would agree.

As much as this pains me to ask, is that supposed to be Piccolo (:confused:) fighting Goku?

I am STILL really bewildered as to why they didn't even color him green? That's almost a necessity don't you think? If you were to do one thing at all....

But like SolidSnake was saying, let's hope for a dramatic turnaround in the next trailer. :monkey3

Nononono its a vampire from Buffy!!! relax!! its not piccolo!!!!:monkey2:monkey2:monkey2 even when i lie to myself my heart aches!!!:monkey2

Yeah, that's James Marsters plays Piccolo who also played Spike the Vampire on Buffy. :D So yes, all of you Buffy-haters are right. That is indeed a vampire. :lol

oh and fox keep trying to take down my stan winston tribute video for compywright claims .
That man made all of there movies alot of there money with his amazing talents in the special effects department.
What big deal is it and how cold hearted can you be taking down a tribute of a man who has died because you maybe see a little part of a movie in there ??!.
Its plain retarded.
FOX SUCK !.

they just finally did this. They took the video down.
Well from making comments and stuff anyway , as soon as I take it off my homepage its gone forever.
I'm scared of putting anything in a video lately , it seems everyone is all about copyright recentley. There taking down videos before I can make em. :sick:google:rotfl

I don't think it looks that bad. I know it's based on the original Dragonball, but I hope they have at least one crazy ass Z style fight scene, but without all the screaming and powering up.

I have to say, I think the new trailer is an improvement over the first one. It's nice to hear the Kamehameha Wave will be in it.

It's funny, the one thing I thought when I heard they were going to make the live action DBZ is "At least they won't try and make Goku's hair all crazy spikey like in the cartoon, since it would look RIDICULOUS and remove any hope people taking it seriously..." and they went and DID IT! :lol:rotfl:lol
