Fox now plans to open film on the Wednesday before Easter weekend
The IGN entertainment news website reports that 20th Century Fox has pushed its American release of James Wong's live-action film version of Akira Toriyama's Dragonball manga two days earlier to April 8. April 8 is the Wednesday before the Easter holiday weekend next year. 20th Century Fox had originally listed an August 15, 2008 release date when it officially announced the project last November. The studio then pushed the film back to April 10 for additional shooting and post-production work before settling on the new April 8 date. The cast includes Justin Chatwin (War of the Worlds, The Invisible, Lost television series), Emmy Rossum (film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera, The Day After Tomorrow), James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Spike, Smallville's Brainiac), and Chow Yun-Fat (A Better Tomorrow, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End).
