Dragon Ball film dated, cast

Ask a typical American about Japan, and the response will usually involve automobiles, sushi, and Godzilla--fairly trivial nuggets of information. But if one of those Americans asked happens to be under 25 years of age, he'll probably gush about Dragon Ball. The wildly popular Dragon Ball franchise began as a Japanese ...

Chow time for Dragon Ball movie

Turning any popular animated property into a live-action film is always a risky venture, but when the fan base is as fanatical as Dragon Ball's is, the film better have some sort of legitimacy.

The movie was officially announced in mid-November, but the names Justin Chatwin (who will play the main character Goku) and James Wong (director, Final Destination) didn't exactly impress.

Now it appears that Dragon Ball may have finally landed that big name it so desperately needed. Chow Yun-Fat has signed on to play Goku's mentor Master Roshi, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The prolific Chinese actor has been a Hong Kong action star for decades as John Woo's go-to guy, starring in acclaimed films such as The Killer and the A Better Tomorrow trilogy. His American break came in 2000 with a starring role in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and he recently appeared ...

Blog Spotlight: The 10 Most Insane Moments in Dragonball and DBZ

Let's not mince words, shall we? The Dragonball: Evolution movie sucks. This is a fact. It's not being screened for critics. It was written by a scab during the Writer's Guild strike. It has almost nothing to do with the original manga or anime. Plus, it's modeled after the goofier, less popular Dragonball instead of the more action-packed, insanely popular DBZ anyways.

I know many of you TR readers aren't fans of DB -- and many of you just hate anime, period. I gotcha. DB's not my favorite anime series. I don't think it's brilliant. But I do think it's very, very good, and it deserved a hell of a lot than Dragonball: Evolution. What drives me most crazy about the movie is that had it been good, maybe it could have shown people why I and so many others think DB ...

The young and very strong boy was on his own, but easily managed. Then one day, Goku met a teenage girl named Bulma, whose search for the dragon balls brought her to Goku's home. Together, they set off to find all seven dragon balls in an adventure that would change Goku's life forever. See how Goku met his life long friends Bulma, Yamcha, Krillin, Master Roshi and more. And see his adventures as a boy, all leading up to Dragonball Z and later Dragonball GT.moreless
