This isn't really an uncommon thing in the film business if the studio projects a large income. The new trailer looks a bit more promising Cool

I'm actually somewhat excited by the new trailer. Before, it was kind of "meh, this could be decent", but now I think it has the potential to pull something of a Transformers and be pretty dang good.

If nothing else, we'll get to see a big screen Kamehameha. Very Happy

Insert joke about script length here. Rolling Eyes Anyway, there was a sequel planned for Speed Racer, too, so...

So Chatwin is already saying "Please don't give up on this movie. If it does good, we'll make a better one."? I'm not sure if we're all still pessimistic about its this movie, but he does seem to be tempting us with another movie if this one does well.

Script written? I thought this was all ad-libbed.

AH HA HA HA, HA HA HA HA, HA...oh wait...you were being...serious?

Confused

Sorry, I just can't picture this being nearly as fun or having the kinds of gee-whiz special FX of Revenge of the Fallen...

Ah Ii!

Hey, if X-Men got a trilogy I don't see how DB:E can't get them. It looks half decent judging by the trailers. Purist will hate it but in a very general sense I can't really see it bombing like Speed Racer. Speed Racer was a bit too psycadilic and sytlized to really appeal to a general public outside of those looking for a bit of nostalgia or anime fans. DB:E doesn't seem too alienating to a general public. But only time will tell.

Hey, even the new Street Fighter movie looks decent.

This is all assuming that it will actually make its money back from this first movie, which, by judging what it will be competing again, won't do. If there is a sequel, I am sure it will be a direct to dvd release as this movie isn't only bashed among our fellow Otaku, but the film geeks as well. Also take in mind, there has been nothing good said about this movie yet.

Seriously Chatwin, do you earnestly belive this movie will be so popular and sell well that a sequel is warented? As if the first movie wasn't horriable enough.

It will be popular, except in the wrong direction. My friends and I are simply going to go to the theaters and troll it while we're watching and I guarantee that a lot more people than just our small group will be doing the same. This is going to be so bad.

Yeah X-Men had a trilogy because the adaption was not as loosely based as DBE. X3 which was notably the worst of the 3 movies will most likely stand leagues above what DBE will accomplish. There's also the fact that the comic nerds didn't pretty much unanimously hate the X-men films, which is the opposite outlook from the DB otakus. You can't even compare the to in the end.

Let's face it there isn't really much of anyone who wants to see this. The movie nerds don't want to see it because they think it looks like crap, the otaku don't want to see it because they've alienated them by changing almost ever aspect of the source that made it DB, and casual movie goers and children will probably pass this up for something else. It's not looking too good at all.

Yes, that's exactly what he said. Rolling Eyes

Do what I will do, and I suggest all do this as well: buy a ticket for some other movie, and then walk into the Dragonball theater.

Really?
According to Yahoo on 4/3 Fast & Furious; Alien Trespass; Paris 36 & Sugar open. on 4/8 there's DBE. on 4/10 there's Hannah Montana & Observe & report so what's the competition? Watchmen will be a month old by then--well past the box office rush. Depending on the film itself, it might still have legs or not by then, but nowadays movies are gone pretty fast. The conventional wisdom I've heard is the first week is the must see fans, the 2nd is the ones wanting to miss the crowd of the must sees & it filters out from there. Yeah, given the fanbase, I don't doubt Watchment will still have viewers, but I've been wondering if it's such a hot film, why was it put out in a pretty dead period for movies? THe Matrix was viewed by many at the time as being rather early for a summer flick. DBE I can see being released at a pretty quiet time. Hannah Montana will presumably have a fairly large young female audience while DBE should attract more males. I know I plan on trying to see it as soon as it opens, but our schedules are pretty hectic anymore so I might have to wait
