Another new teaser poster for the upcoming Dragonball movie has been uncovered by the guys over at dbthemovie.com. Although I'm not a big fan of the show or manga, every time we write about this movie, the fans seem to tear it all apart. So now I will admit that I think this is the best poster I've seen so far, but honestly I still have no clue what to expect! I'm personally going to wait until I see a trailer before determining whether this could be good or not. However, you can check out this new poster below and tear it apart if you wish. This is the first time we've seen Justin Chatwin as Goku in his orange gi. Enjoy!
With so much negative buzz, I'm curious what it will take to convert fans from disliking everything they've seen so far to actually looking forward to this movie? Any thoughts?
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 is directed by James Wong, of Final Destination, Jet Li's The One, and Final Destination 3 previously, with a script written by Ben Ramsey, of The Big Hit and Love and a Bullet previously. The film 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. 20th Century Fox is releasing the Dragonball movie in theaters everywhere on April 3rd, 2009.
