Never got into the whole Dragonball thing, but that's not to say the property doesn't have its fans ... and those fans are hoping beyond hope that the new live-action film does the popular manga series justice. Folks have been iffy on the previously-released images, and I'm curious to see what you all think of this new piece of marketing power -- what is perhaps our best look at the flick so far.
IGN has shoveled out the brand new trailer for Dragonball Evolution, and while the martial arts sequences look fun, I'm not crazy about the special effects work. I won't say it looks cheap, but it's lacking a certain polish. Starring Justin Chatwin (whose blank and boring face needs to show more emotion), Jamie Chung, Emmy Rossum, James Marsters and Chow Yun-Fat, Dragonball -- in its simplest form -- tells of a young dude named Goku who, in order to save the world from the evil Lord Piccolo, must collect the seven Dragon Balls before his nemesis. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
Dragonball Evolutionarrives in theaters on April 8.
