Dragonball Header 1

You know that old saying, “I’ve had worse.” That is how I feel about the upcoming cinematic adaptation of Dragonball. I suppose that while nothing about this movie grabs me in any way — except possibly Emmy Rossum — worse films will be released over the course of the next 12 months. As well, the Dragonball game and cartoon series have major followings, so just because I lack interest, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of people waiting anxiously for April 3, 2009.

Of course, before the movie can be released, we must go through the marketing blitz that will ultimately include at least a few trailers — one of which was leaked online via DBtheMovie.com today. The footage is without proper audio, as it was recorded by a random bystander at the Brand Licensing Europe Expo over the weekend. What I can gather from the footage below is that the visuals in this film are dangling in the area between “impressive” and “overdone.” Who knows about the rest. Either way, the video is below.

We have the updated, less bootleggy trailer below.

The full teaser trailer for Dragonball is rumored to be running in front of Max Payne when it hits theaters on October 17th, so until then this is all we have to go on. Dragonball stars Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Emmy Rossum and Chow Yun-Fat. It is directed by James Wong.

What do you think of the leaked footage for Dragonball? Additionally, are you excited about this movie?
