That's being optimistic I think.

Oh no, that makes it worse. I have yet to see an American anime or remake of anime that wasn't complete GARRBAGE, poor poor DBZ. Sure it's over hyped, slow, with shallow character and ran far to long but it didn't deserve that!!


American anime? What is that? If you are talking about American animation in general, then that is quite a statement. No Disney/Pixar movie you've seen that you think isn't garbage? No American animated movie has been even ok in your eyes? Though this point is mute as the DBZ movie isn't going to be animation anyway. Now with remakes, I am not sure if you mean American anime remakes or Japanese remakes. I know of no American anime remakes, so you will have to enlighten me, but I have seen a number of Japanese anime remakes and they certainly haven't been garbage so you will have to give me some examples.

I think Fresno was pointing out that the DBZ movie could do super-powered martial arts fighting like in The Matrix or The One. Or it could do flying fighting like at the end of the third Matrix movie.

I mean series like Robotech, Voltron, Animetrix, The animate Highlander movie. Except for Robotech which is saved by Macross and the third season the others are garbage.

As for the fighting, they'd have to do something like MAtrix three to stay faithful to the series. Mean mind blowing super unrealistic amazing fights don't get any better then DBZ during it's prim, Namik, Android and Cells sagas. That partially what has me worried.

Then who are they going to get for the Actors? Are the actors and staff take the movies seriously. Are they going to stay faithful to the characters. There's a lot to worry about.

Personally I don't put so much hope in that movie. The many adaptations from the last years were, uh, improvable (to say something positive), but, of course, this is only my opinion. Mortal Kombat, anyone? Streetfighter?
Heck, has anyone of you seen the old Dragonball live-action movie?
That Chinese-Indian coproduction (English dub available)? It was so bad it was actually fun watching it, altogether with a bottle of sake or something... man, that was one great evening... :D
Still I'd watch the new movie - just to be able to talk about it.

Yep, that's the one.
Great entertainment for an entire evening if you're drunk. :D

Here is a little more information posted about the upcoming DBZ movie:

"Dragon Ball Movie to Film This Year for 2008 Release
posted on 2007-11-14 01:15 EST
Final Destination's James Wong to direct Justin Chatwin (Goku)

Twentieth Century Fox has officially announced that it signed director James Wong (Final Destination, X-Files television series, The One) and casted twenty-five-year-old Justin Chatwin (War of the Worlds, The Invisible, Lost television series) in the lead role of Goku for the movie adaptation of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball action manga. According to the Variety newspaper, filming is set to begin this month, and the film is slated to open worldwide on August 15, 2008. James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Spike, Smallville's Brainiac) will play the antagonist Piccolo, and Stephen Chow, of Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer fame, is producing the project.

Wong will not only direct the film, but he also rewrote an earlier script that was submitted by Ben Ramsey (The Big Hit). According to The Hollywood Reporter newspaper, the story centers around the alien Goku as an adult as he protects Earth — the very planet he was sent to destroy. Chatwin is training under the stunt firm 87Eleven (The Matrix, The Bourne Supremacy, 300). Other roles are still being casted. Previous reports have indicated that shooting will take place near Montreal, Canada and in Mexico, and that Heroes actor James Kyson Lee is auditioning for the role of Yamcha.

Between 1984 and 1995, Toriyama created 519 installments of the original manga for the publisher Shueisha and its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. The manga's 42 compiled volumes have sold over 150 million copies in Japan and over 300 million copies worldwide. Both the manga and its anime adaptations (Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z) have enjoyed success in countries in Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. The 17 animated movies in the franchise have been seen a record 49 million times in Japanese theaters. Fox first acquired the live-action film rights to Dragon Ball in 2002." Source ANN

---------------------------------------------------

Things seem like they are coming together. Definitely glad to see Stephen Chow involved.

I'll admit I'm a little psyched. I mean, with the right reinvisioning of the series the movie could work VERY well. I do wonder how they'll rewrite the story since it has Piccolo as the villain and Piccolo only appeared in the last few episodes of Dragon ball.

I believe they are doing Goku vs. Piccolo from the end of Dragonball, or whenever they were battling in DB, but making Goku a young adult as opposed to a kid. Or something like that.

Well that makes sense since Goku was an adult when he fought piccolo, I just don't know how they'll rewrite the story since the fight with Piccolo occurs years after the fight with Piccolo's father. In other words, I'm wondering how they will explain Piccolo's origin while building tension for the confrontation, since the main reason Piccolo was such an important fight was because of his lineage. So I'm wondering if they'll stick with the tournament (which makes me wonder if they'll have Chi-Chi) or change the story arc/Piccolo's origins. Then again, if they make it a comedy, then it all can work out (hell, Piccolo's dad was trapped in a rice cooker...and Stephen Chow's involved :D )

I hope I'm not gonna be dragged to the cinema.
My girlfriend is a huge fan of Marsters' since he appeared in "Buffy". :D

I don't think it's worth the time speculating how they will set Goku and Piccolo. I'd rather guess they'll use the characters and make up some more or less new story based on a row of melee battles... hell, they could even have them fight first and then fraternize against some greater evil during the last ten minutes...

And if they're gonna have an adult Goku there should be a Chichi, because the newer heroes of good and justice often have love interests (i.e. "something to lose"), or there is some other form of gender balance.

What story? The DragonBall story consists of Goku growing up and fighting a number of ever-stronger adversaries. And when he's not fighting, he's in training. Things like relationships, marriage and children never looked like anything more than alibis for me.
For some reason I really prefer YûYû Hakusho. Cooler characters and more interesting voice cast I guess.

You shouldn't let an extraneous live action movie ruin your enjoyment, or memories, of the series. If you don't like the live action adaptation, just simply forget about it. That's what I did for the Fushigi Yuugi OVA :D (The second one anyway, I didn't have a problem with the first part).

Here's the leaked trailer. http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/news/t ... leaked.php

Seriously, this movie looks like its going to suck. It looks nothing like the original DB series, or even DBZ for that matter. It looks like just another shit "adaption" or "remake" coming out of hollywoods fat ass.

I will wait for a real trailer to come out since that trailer is so short its more like a teaser.

But you are probably right Mmsven, it will not be as good as the anime or manga but hollywood has to find some way to cash in.
