We already shared with you some photos from the set of Dragonball, but they were quickly removed from Fox. Now we have our very first look at Justin Chatwin as Goku and Emmy Rossum as Bulma from the movie. I'm not exactly how many people have an interest in this Dragonball movie, but I'm guessing there are enough of you to warrant sharing these photos. Plus I just love Emmy Rossum, so I can't help myself when it comes to photos of her. Unfortunately since the movie was pushed back to April of 2009, we probably won't see any new official photos or footage until much later this year - at least until Comic-Con.
The Dragonball - The Movie blog was sent the exclusive scans of the Japanese magazine named Weekly Young Jump. You can check the pages out full-size at that link but we've cropped out the Dragonball portions below. How does Justin Chatwin look as Goku?
Based on the popular Japanese manga created by Akira Toriyama, whose work spawned best selling graphic novels, video games and a phenomenally successful television series, Dragonball centers on the heroic Goku, a powerful warrior who protects the Earth from an endless stream of rogues bent on dominating the Universe and controlling the mystical objects from which the film takes its name.
Dragonball stars Justin Chatwin as Goku, James Marsters as Piccolo, Emmy Rossum as Bulma, Chow Yun-Fat as Master Roshi, Jamie Chung as Chi Chi, and Park Joon as Yamcha. The movie arrives in theaters on April 3rd, 2009.
