'Dragonball' Trailer Released

Check out the new trailer for Dragonball!!!

Synopsis via Wiki: Goku (Justin Chatwin) goes on a journey to find Master Roshi (Chow Yun-Fat) and gather the seven mystical Dragon Balls before the evil Lord Piccolo (James Marsters) can. Along his way, he meets Bulma (Emmy Rossum) who then joins him to help him in his mission. When arriving at Roshi’s place, he is not welcomed with an embrace but has to fight Roshi. Roshi soon learns that Goku is the grandson of Gohan (Randall Duk Kim) and thus trains him to prepare him for the ultimate battle with Lord Piccolo to prevent him from collecting the powerful Dragon Balls.

Dragonball is expected to hit theaters April 8, 2009.

  • Rita

    I LOVE DRAGON BALL! I really wish the movie doesn’t ruin the successful dragon ball franchise :(

    By the way, that white dude’s grandpa is the keymaker guy from Matrix? uhhhh ok.

  • Rita

    Oh god, I just watched the trailer.. wtf?! It doesn’t capture the feel of the earlier part of the series.. where Goku was younger, had that monkey tail, and was a ‘clueless’, innocent country kid who was just so loveable!

    Ahhh I’m disappointed already!!!

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    …damn, this movie looks so cheap ~n~ cheesy. all the characters are wrong, the whole dragon ball world/ story line is fcuked. LOL what were they thinking?!?
    ;this reminds me of jean-claude van damme’s street fighter! and that’s not a good thing.

  • oh no

    ooof fuck!!! its so weak imitatino of this fanstic comedy -action cartoon series!! thats not even a 1/10000000 of it.
    how dare you do it such shit like that.. ? japanese should felt insulted. i would!
    americans industry fucks almost everything

  • michelle

    It doesn’t look as bad I thought but I wouldn’t pay money to go see it in theaters. But Justin is hot : )

  • bella

    Sorry have to agree with comment 2.

  • yay!!!

    umm imma only see it cuz of justin

  • Naruto

    Looks like one of those bad Wachowski Bros movies like Speed Racer, but I’m waiting for a live action Naruto movie, but Gatchaman will do also

  • Gasol_fan16

    I will see it! My son used to love to watch Dragonball. He will defiantly be stoked on seeing this movie! :D

  • MarieMJS

    WTF horrible, looks like a cheap B movie that will end in a direct to video batch.
    Oh wait, it will actually be released in cinemas.. *facepalm*

  • Mika

    I’ve seen white people with (adopted) asian kids, but never Asians adopting white kung fu kids!! A white kid named GO(H)-KU played by Justin Chatwin. WTF??? And WTH??? STAY AWAY FROM OUR MY JAP POP CULTURE YOU CRACKERS!!!

  • nando

    That looks so bad. :( Too bad they had to fcuk up the story.

    I agree, it’s like watching Street Fighter with Jean Claude Van Damme.

  • Mika

    The stupid *** stars are covering my J.A.P comment!! I’m Japanese for f*cks sake! FAAAWCK you JJ and your stupid censoring!!

  • Nick Lachey USA

    The only positives I see is that the girls look better than the cartoon girls… What were they thinking? This is beyond disappointing. What a joke…

  • Today

    All I have to say is: Lmao!!

  • Lilianne

    this is going to the theatres? really?! It looks like a christmas tv movie for the kids.
    Don’t destroy my favorite anime serie of all the time please…

  • Lovesryangosling

    Justin looks hot!!! I use to like this stuff but i grew out of it. But justin is hot so i might see it. Btw, where is trunks or whatever. I remember he used to be my favorite!!

  • move the crowd like moses

    fuck dragonball
    ive always hated it, its so stupid
    all they do is scream like they’re constipated
    fuck dbz

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    OMG! I was a huge Dragonball fan as a kid, this looks really stupid but I’ll probably see it anyway XD

  • fashion smashion

    hmmmm looks lame

  • fashion smashion

    hmmmm looks lame

  • meatloaf

    awful cast and movie

  • croks

    Such a disappointed, justin will ruin Goku :-(

  • Richard

    7 mystics? WTF MAN! was the Namekians who created them why are there 7 mystics for gods sake!


  • caxposed

    Super Mario Bros. (1993) and Double Dragon (1994) look more high budget than this awful & boring preview. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some EMMY, JUSTIN, YUN-FAT and JAMIE (MTV’s: The Real World), but this doesn’t make me want to watch the movie. I mean, all I’ve seen from X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE are some promos and I’m already dying to watch it… and I ain’t even a JACKMAN fan! I don’t know, maybe I’m just hating cuz I never really liked Dragonball to begin with, I was more of a Sailor Moon fanatic, LMAO!!

  • lin

    o god they ruin the chances of making the dragonball z sequel. talk bout bad acting n cheesy. looks shite

  • Bre

    Excuse me while I go throw up in my mouth.

  • Queenoftrashin

    How funny. Because of my soon-to-be-23-years-old son, I know all of these names from his childhood.

  • diva

    I used to watch ths show when I was younger my cousin’s forced me and i grew to like it now what is this shit! seriously this is the best they could do they should have kept it close to the original i mean no offence but a white dude name Goku HA! the girl who plays Bulma looks fierce so I would give the movie a chance

  • Cici

    the trailer looks horrible.

  • c

    wtffffffffff …. they’ve got EVERY concept and character wrong, specially roshi. dragonball was such a cool part of my childhood and now they f*cked it all for me… ASSH*OLES.

  • alan


    Asian, Asian, Asian, Hot Asian, Old Asian, Asian, WHITE, Green Dude, Asian. WTF?

  • bee

    WTF at Bulma not having blue hair.

    They coulda had Emmy put a wig on, if Miley Cyrus can do it she can too.

  • William

    Oh cool, you actually posted my request!
    Although it is now called “Dragonball Evolution”.

  • Kerl

    I think everyone feels obliged to pan. It isn’t half a bad as all that. The trailer barely tells anything other than it being an action movie.

  • joneblaze

    Looks terrible should go straight to DVD

  • JOse

    They got the Dragon Ball world completely wrong.
    This really looks like one of those bad asian movies
    from the eighties

  • nilly

    omg dragonball is a goddamn comedy, not some angsty movie featuring a very good-looking goku dammit i hate hollywood

  • Anastacia

    that’s kind of funny XD

    … but it looks lame too

    how cool would it be, if Hollywood would remake SAILOR MOON!!! :)
    it was my fav. anime^^

  • Sylvia

    Goku sucks. What the heck with his hair. The movie looks so lameeee.

  • Pam

    they ruined the series, and if they make bulma goku’s love interest i’m going to hate it more, where’s chichi?

  • o-mg…w.T.f??

    OMG… That looked soo bad… nothing like the original….
    even freaking street fighter with jean claude looked better than this piece of poop…. Horrible

  • dolce


  • Stephen

    I think the kids will dig it. Definitely.

  • Steff

    My good god…
    They just absolutely ruined Dragonball, I mean some of the cast is OK. But Goku? I mean no offense to Justin, but he just doesn’t suit the role.
    The rest of the cast look OK + I can’t really judge the plot until I see it, but as of now it all looks so incredibly cheesy + something that shouldn’t be in the cinemas, which really is a shame considering Dragonball is such an amazing anime… =(

  • LuckyL

    I’ll say it again: Disappointing casting and I hope it fails

  • rini

    This movie looks like crap. I was already upset bulma doesn’t have blue hair, but looking at the trailer…thats the least of their problems.

  • santeezy

    im a fan and this is terrible.
