The Japanese movie trailer for Fox’s big screen live-action adaptation of Dragonball has hit the interwebs. Remember how cool that new Terminator Salvation trailer was? Well this is quite the opposite. Goofy looking characters, cliched action sequences and laughable dialogue. But honestly, what did you expect? Leave your most amusing thoughts in the comments below!
This Dragonball movie trailer was shot on the showfloor at the Brand Licensing Europe Expo in London. Normally we wouldn’t run such crappy footage, but there are still a lot of rabid Dragonball fans out there that are not yet convinced that Fox ruined their precious big screen adaptation. For those of you who don’t want to sit through the Cloverfield-like shaky cam, I’m sure the official version will show up online soon enough.
DBthemovie has gotten their hands on a new Dragonball character poster featuring Emmy Rossum as Bulma (seen above). Head on over to Nerdorama to see exclusive screen captures from the official movie trailer.
ComingSoon is reporting that 20th Century Fox will released the first trailer for the big screen adaptation of Dragonball attached to Max Payne, on October 17th. Meanwhile, rumors that Fox isn’t happy with the final film have been debunked on a variety of different websites. In fact, SuperheroFlix‘s sources claim that “everyone involved seems to think they have a hit on their hands” and that the studio has already been talking about sequel possibilities. While I never expected Fox to cancel the release of the film (how do these rumors get started anyways?) I’m not sure if I believe that the executives are jumping for joy over the results.
Film1.nl has the first poster for the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still starring Keanu Reeves. Even though we’ve heard virtually nothing about this project since the first casting announcements, Fox is still planning on releasing the film on December 12th 2008.
/Film reader Christopher M sent over this poster for Guy Ritchie’s RockNRolla.
DBlive has posted what appears to be the first possibly official photo of Justin Chatwin as Goku from 20th Century Fox’s upcoming DragonBall live-action movie. The scan was said to be taken from the Japanese magazine Shonen Jump #24. Updated with a higher quality image. As always, click to enlarge.
