    I'll only be watching this because James Marsters is in it. Plus my boys want to see it as well. I was planning on watching it for free online. But they want to see it in the theaters. Who knows, it might actually be good. Can't judge a movie just on its trailer.

    I Love Death note but your wrong saying it's the only good manga adaptation. Azumi , Izo and Ichi the Killer were f*cking awesome

    I also wonder if there are enough of us true fans out there who know the stories and will support the movie? I guess if me and all of my friends from high school in the 90's know it so well all the way here in The Bahamas it will do well.

    It is hard to determine, from the trailer, the solidity of the plot and script of the movie, which will largely determine the movies success or failure.

    Along with the script and storyline character development, story progression, mood, atmosphere, and special effects also play a large part. From the trailer however it seems as if the special affects part might be lacking a bit.

    The director has the task of making the unrealistic realistic within reasonable bounds using the aforementioned tools.

    I for one think that the director seems to be conscious of how far to push things and where certain things need to be edited so it doesn't turn into a power ranger free for all.

    For example, piccolos skin color is a pale green instead of a dark green. A good move in my opinion because his skin being a solid green color would detract from the characters credibility, and the actor's role, taking the movie in the direction of Street Fighter the movie (A place none of us would want to ever go again).

    Everything does not need to follow the outline set by the animation specifically. The director should know, however, which characters to use in order to develop a solid story in the given allotment of time without disappointing the fans or straying too far away from the original work unless you can make it ten times better.

    Most people here seem to lean more toward the speed racer effect than the Transformers approach, in that you are more interested in a literal interpretation of the anime. If the director were to go in this direction the whole movie would probably be shot in a green room and the fight scenes would have to be pretty incredible.

    Also directors have to pull in as many people as they possibly can to see the movie because there aren't as many hardcore fans as there are people who aren't and they want them to be able to follow along. I for one want the movie to be on a higher plane than the cartoon, achieving the level of realism and angst possessed by the Transformers movie while giving the fans what they want (great action scenes).

    It's a delicate balance but it can be done. It especially helps when the director has a clear vision and appreciation for the movie they are making.

    What direction the director will take remains to be seen. Although if this version does not turn out well another director may take it over and do it justice like in the case of Incredible Hulk. The first version was more of a comic book excerpt. The second version however had direction and translated better in regards to realism and the audience. I liked them both but the second version of the movie was my favorite of the two for obvious reasons.

    Japan anime is never made good on the big screen... We need someone to take a giant sh*t on the director so he can smell what his movie will amount to. Dragon Ball was and is a good anime.

    Krillin and Chiaotzu are dead during the King Piccolo saga but come for the JR saga. I guess the cast of Dragonball would get too big to flesh out all the characters stories so they had to cut some out. Like Korin, Yajirobe and Kami.
    It's all about flow and action timing. Which means the better they edit this film the better it will be.

    IcerLink you do have a point. When ever Hollywood gets there hands on something be prepared to see something you won't expect to be different. For instance, I don't know how you can start the "live action" series of Dragonball without having Krillin. Its just one of those things. In Spiderman he was supposed to create his webbing not have it come directly from his body. In X-Men the Pheonix saga has Gambit and Jubilee but the introduce it with out them two. Thats just the way the cookie crumbles.

    Like I said it is an adaptation.In the cartoon version of Batman and Superman Harvey Two-Face and Lex Luthor are black, but in the recent movies they are played by white actors. In the first Batman Harvey Dent was played by Billy Dee Williams. He was played by Tommy Lee Jones in Batman Forever. No one made a fuss about that contradiction. It was what the Director of that film wanted and what direction he wanted to go. If James Wong thinks this is the right steps to take in bringig this franchise to the Live Action stage, let us respect his desicion and anticipate this film.

    The final product of the movie is always different than the trailer. This is just a teaser and not a final trailer. The trailers also appear out of sequence than the movie too. Besides this is an adaptation of the whole Dragonball series in a two hour movie. You can't fit every moment you liked in it. Look at Lord of the Rings. They cut the whole Tom Bombadil saga out of and people were mad, but in the end it turned out pretty decent.

    Dragonball is one of those movies where EVERYONE wants to see it get made. Just like me, ive been dying to see a real live action Dragonball Movie. BUT! its also one of those things where IF you do make a movie of it, it BETTER be REALLY GOOD or dont make it at all... but as for this Dragonball movie... this is gonna SUCK! They messed up big on this one. Alot of people are gonna be disappointed if not already. Releasing this movie will destroy the Dragonball Phenomenon where people adore it World Wide. Because its poorly made... Should have been done with different actors and followed the characterization and storyline word for word just like the cartoon because thats what people like to see.
