Dragonball Evolution Trailer

One movie we haven't really heard from in a while is Dragonball Evolution, probably for good reason. But then again, the more I see of this, the more I wonder if I'm wrong in thinking that it looks so bad, and curious whether it indeed might just be a fun movie. Maybe it'll turn out better for people who aren't big fans of the original anime? Either way, today we've got a new French trailer for Dragonball Evolution courtesy of ComingSoon that shows a few new scenes and overall is just flashier than anything before. This trailer alone doesn't exactly push me in one way or another, but it is just cool to watch. Enjoy!

Watch the French trailer for Dragonball Evolution:

This movie does not look as bad as everyone has been making it out to be. Its not really an adaptation of the anime but thats alright with me, and yes i am a big big fan. I think people should just take it as is and let it be fun and cool!

Energetic Japanese singing in the background? Ah, crap, they've got me now. This is just gonna be fun to watch, so if that's not what you want, just stay away.

Ironmonging on Feb 3, 2009


As a matter of fact that song MAKES this trailer and I cannot wait to watch this.

Ironmonging on Feb 3, 2009


Respect to all those that are fans and who are psyched to see this, but I am not one of those people. This still looks to me like a fan-made ripoff.

Boris on Feb 3, 2009


1st poster this is an Adaption of Dragonball, it Has Goku, Bulma, Master Roshi searching for the Dragonballs with Evil Lord piccolo trying to take over the world and Goku turning into Ozzaru while Shenron coming out of the Dragonballs and granting wishes ..... if thats not Dragonball then I apparently been watching the wrong show all these years.

MajinKrillin on Feb 3, 2009


I cant wait for its release in April

josh on Feb 3, 2009


Also this clip just showed you a sneak of Ozzaru who looks bad ass! Everyone does this when a movie first being made they hate it Transformers, Batman ect then when it finally releases you still have the small number of haters then the majority of people who truly enjoyed the movie! BTW this movie looks Amazing its going to be a fun ride watching this and I cannot wait!

Yeah Alex I agree with you. The more I see the better it looks. I'm still very disappointed that piccolo is a bad guy but this looks pretty darn entertaining from the footage shown above. I think I'll stop being so hard on it and just enjoy it.

Scott McHenry on Feb 3, 2009


This trailer sucks big time, they raped DB.

LOLLARD on Feb 3, 2009


april 1 wow

florian on Feb 3, 2009


it looks like a nineties tv show. like power rangers or lois and clark...

fanboy d on Feb 3, 2009


Still looks a bit like Mortal Kombat, I'll give it a few years for a re-boot, or maybe not. This isn't a cinema movie, it's scifi channel material.

Crapola on Feb 3, 2009


why is the kamehameha one handed? movie is gonna suck

jesse on Feb 3, 2009


The production values look like Power Rangers and other crappy children's shows.

ebbie on Feb 3, 2009


16: The Kame Hame Ha isn't one handed you moron it's a different shot. They aren't gonna spoil it. There's a much better trailer on http://dbthemovie.com that should shut most of you up. Why Alex decided to post an old trailer when a new one is out is beyond me.

to 16 on Feb 3, 2009


Shenron looks epic in japanese tv spot!

MJC on Feb 3, 2009


This still looks horrible, whether you're a fan or not.

Bummer on Feb 3, 2009


This keeps on looking better and better, yet I am still not convinced. And Goku's "Kame Hame Ha" sounds extremely weak.

Ajax on Feb 3, 2009


Yosh! another movie in the list of Worst movie of 2009.

Cindarr on Feb 3, 2009


um no, this looks bad. And, hate to say it, but it's FOX. haha

Timothy on Feb 3, 2009


Way I see it only two things can come out of this film: satisfaction or laughs (even if you hate it) It's a win-win

Jaf on Feb 3, 2009


new japanese footage here: http://www.dragonballcinema.com/

I became a DB fan by watching it in french 😉 I still think DB should be in french and its odd to hear it in English/Japanese. The only thing about this trailer is that... Its a bit sad that the same voices from the series arent in this trailer! 🙁 They could have tried to get ahold of those voices for the version francais. Oh well i will be seeing it in English anyways x) It looks really bad the movie, but im sure its gonna be entertaining.. Or AT LEAST fun to see... I will probably be even going to see this if it hits the theaters in Finland, which i doubt to be honest. It doesnt look like the DB movie i always thought would have looked cool on the big screen though.

max on Feb 4, 2009


so when are we going to see cute little justins butt in that porno movie he's making??

dan link on Feb 4, 2009


NOPE>.. still gives me the feeling of the craptastic "Go Go Power Rangers"...... But of course I will still go see it and pad someone's pockets to make another craptastic movie down the road...... GRRRRR.... who knows, maybe there is something I am missing, but just can't get the wire work and effects from the trailer to stop reminding me of PR

Dusty on Feb 4, 2009


the birds are sexy,still not sure about the film.

zetsu on Feb 4, 2009


I went from not being interested at all to being interested...It does look like it will be fun...My expectations are low, as they should be, but I am still thinking I will catch this thing in the theater. #11 - Why would you be sad that piccolo is a bad guy? He original was a bad guy, just like Vegeta was a bad guy and Majin buu was a bad guy and they all end up being allies and even friends....

ERivas on Feb 4, 2009


I agree with Jaf(24), LOL!

CoryCow on Feb 4, 2009


this trailer makes it look a little better... but its still going to stink to high heavens.

dave13 on Feb 4, 2009


I can't tell this and streetfighter apart

Ryan on Feb 4, 2009


It's funny reading the comments people who have something negative to say, say things like this "Goku doing a 1 handed Kamehameha this movie is going to suck" Answer: That is clearly not him doing a Kamehameha that is a different shot all together there not going to ruin the most epic part of the movie in the trailer you fool! "Why is Piccolo a bad guy" Ummm because Piccolo in DRAGONBALL was a bad guy please watch the show this is NOT Dragonball Z!!!! Why do people always hate on movies before they come out, Transformers was being hated on big time, Batman was being hated on then look what happened everyone is in love with the movie now! Dragonball will be the same thing will it have the same amount of success no but will it still get a huge blockbuster opening weekend oh for sure yes! I for one think this movie is going to be amazing because I actually follow the show and can tell you this movie is based on Dragonball! 1) Dragon balls 2) Shenron (Dragon) 3) Goku, Bulma, Master Roshi and Piccolo (Yes I know Krillin is not there and that sadness me too but life goes on) 4) Capsules (Capsle Corp) 5) Ki Blasts and Powering Up 6) OZZARU 7) GOING ON AN ADVENTURE Hmmm all that above is what makes Dragonball and they so far from what I seen in the Trailers have displayed the above in them signifying this is most definitely Dragonball!

MajinKrillin on Feb 4, 2009


so the eye at the begining of the trailer is the ozzaru becuz i am still missing it and i agree wit Ironmonging the hip japanese music sorta sells me on the movie now hope its in the american verison

samuel on Feb 4, 2009


LOL epic megafail

Kamus on Feb 4, 2009


This looks like a fun movie

Kail on Feb 5, 2009


I love the french voice for Piccolo.

Lauren on Feb 5, 2009


personally I think this trailer looks worse maybe i need to rewatch the first...

Silver on Feb 5, 2009


I'am a huge DBZ fan, and to see this makes me so sad,and angry at the same time. How can you guys F**** up the best anime series of all time, what a flop! I can tell you this Watchmen is going to be better than this piece of S*****.

clipse on Feb 12, 2009


This movie was horrible, hands down, it made Street fighter look way better. Horrible...no more comment cause I'fm freaken pissed off
