What the hell?!??
A newspaper in Chile ran an article on Dragonball: Evolution, and in it the budget of the movie was unveiled. According to the paper, the production budget was only 45 million, much less than the previous $100 million estimates. What this means is the film has already made about half its budget back in Asia alone.
newspaper articled from Chile
So your telling me that the film was $45 million to make?!?! Not $100 million!!?
Now I get! Now I get it! I mean, a $100 million movie will look better then this. Right?!
Danm 20th Fox, you got us there. $100 million...Why didn't I see this coming.
So who put that $100 million budget info?....IMDB? Wiki? I know how much they love to edit things around and mess with ppl.
There’s really no doubt now that the film will be profitable, and so sequels are a definite possibility. IGN spoke with Justin Chatwin (Goku) and James Marsters (Piccolo) who were incredibly enthusiastic about the idea… Marsters even wants 6 more films!
He went on: “All I know is I’ve been signed to three movies, but I would like to make five — seven of them. You could just pretty much paint by numbers using the wealth of source material to easily get the seven films. There’s that much there.”
Meanwhile, Chatwin is also obviously thinking about Dragonball as a series of movies, with the actor seeing Evolution as an introduction piece to the wider universe.
He said: “There’s a whole generation of kids waiting to be introduced to Dragonball, so this first movie is really important for that. I mean the main plot is the battle between Piccolo and Goku, but this first film still serves to introduce the characters and where they’re from and what they’re deals are. And so to cover that ground really takes up most of the first movie.”
He goes on: “I know what they have in store for the second one and it’s really cool! It’s more in the vein of the Dragonball saga… it goes into other places, there’s other characters, other fighters and there’s a lot of action that is just really awesome.
“It actually goes more into Dragon Ball Z land and it’s just really exciting. It goes into the whole legend of Dragonball. I cant really say more than that, but it made me think this is a cool franchise to be a part off because there’s so much we haven’t shown yet.”
Well, I know is this: The next film will be more of the DBZ side then this movie. I just read in the begining of the film, Goku get him self killed. Thats all I know. But 6 movies!?!?!? To much man, to much. 3 is decent number for a movies series but 6!!? James Marster is a good actor and all, but come on man....Really? 6 films? Are we going all the way to the Buu saga? Why can't we stop at the frieza saga....WERE IT WAS ORIGINALLY SUPPOSE TO END IN THE MANGA!!!? You can do it, we don't need to see the Cell & Buu saga.
..... I feel happy and sad at the same time!......
See you all soon! ^_^
