There is no doubt that when money is made, a company will see enough reason to make another movie in that title, what ever it may be. White Noise got a sequal, granted it went to DVD only, but they felt that enough money was to be made that they could get away with it and be in the green expense wise. There was that movie about ghosts making it into our world through the computers, I forget the name but as much as everyone talks down that movie, it got two U.S. sequals. Do you feel that Dragon Ball Evolution will make enough money that Fox will try and add another story in the line of this title?
Well They made around 27million over seas, so that may get a DVD release or maybe a movie release if nothing else. Why? If your movie fails.....ACTION FIGURES!!! Kids are the money. Now I watched several shows from all three sagas, and I won't say it's bad, but of all the "anime" cartoons out there to gain such a following over here in the states, we kind of wasted our pick. Imagine if Blue Gender had been cleaned up and brought over here first, or maybe like a Trigun, which is my fav. I am not knocking your show by any means so please don't think that, but I also feel you will never be happy with a live action DB movie because you cannot make a person or shot look as goofey and silly as the show is. Come on, when there isn't any fighting, there are walking pigs, prehistoric animals running around, locations with nothing in them for miles and miles to the point that no such place could be found on Earth. That will never transfer over to the screen well.
I would hope not. Honestly, I never even got into the manga/anime, but I knew enough to tell when an interpretation looks like crap. I just think they shouldn't have wasted their time, but that's just my opinion. Honestly, turning anything animated into live action is a big stretch. Remember the TMNT live action movies, Scooby Doo, or Garfield, not to mention the countless others like Underdog, Fat Albert, and Robin Williams' Popeye? I mean, they all can't turn out like Transformers, so I think they can either try harder to make these movies better or pick a better source material for a movie. And is it just me, or will they make a movie out of ANY source material lately?
Just because you are a fan of the series, does NOT excuse you for supporting crap.
I am a long time D&D player, but I hated the movie.
Same for Transformers.
Same for Eragon.
Same for...while, most conversions like this.
Will there be others? Hell, this is the SECOND Dragonball live action movie made people! Yes, there will be...but likely they will be direct to video, as more reports of theaters not even bothering to show the movie come in.
