First Images from the Dragonball Movie Trailer

142 Comments

Well kids, I guess you don’t have to wait for the “Dragonball” movie trailer to show in front of “Max Payne” after all. Well, you still have to wait to see the actual footage (you know, moving and such), but screenshots from the trailer have leaked online, and they look, well, let’s put it this way: if you weren’t fans of the movie in the first place, these images probably aren’t going to convince you to change your mind.

The original screenshots surfaced over at Nerdorama (a place for nerds, one presumes), but the site has been hit so hard with traffic it’s since gone down. I was, though, able to find these images over at the Dragonball Movie Blog.

The “Dragonball” trailer shows in front of Max Payne October 17, 2008, and opens wide April 3rd, 2009.

So, um, why does Piccolo look like a vampire extra from Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

    nice costume for piccolo! looks modern! thank god they took out the feelers and the gay original costume. he looks like spike in armor.
    wait… he is spike in armor! lol

    so far so good i think.

    cept goku looks silly, they should have just made him wore leather jeans and jacket.

      Excuse me,are you trying to say piccolo looks good?

      He has no feelers.
      He aint Green.
      No white cloak.
      No purple training suit.

      Not piccolo.

      looks like the master from buffy.

      I hope that maybe if he powers up the aura will at least be green.
      Other than that.

      Not piccolo.

      I mean how hard is it to make someone green.
      if james masters is apperently a “fan” of dragonball then why the fuck did he not just say “i aint doing it if i aint green”.
      i would.

        ok ur retarded. this isnt a dragonball z movie. its DRAGONBALL!

        ur describing piccolo from dragonball z, which isnt even the same character as who marsters plays. have u even seen db? at the end when goku kills lord piccolo he spits up an egg which becomes Kame, then came expells all the evil in his body, which is the piccolo u love soooo damn much.

        first off, lord piccolo has been in jail and out of the sun for 2000 years. i bet if u stayed outta the sun for 5 years ud be white as hell too.

        plus do u know how much of a bitch that would be if he had green skin and they shoot against a green screen? fuckin damn near impossible.

        stop being dumb.

          Well look mate,i dont care if he hasnt seen sun for the past how many years, i dont think alot of you have either.

          I remember piccolo green and mean.not like a vampire.

          i remember the purple suit he wears in dragonball when he last fights goku.I also think it would be nice to see his cloak.

          I dont think my opinion was dumb.Each to his own.

        • i think so i saw him on the te

          Adam your wrong – before dragonball even starts there was a namekian who wanted to be guardian of earth he split into 2 (good and evil) so that he could do this – at the end of the fight piccolo(evil) spits out an egg containing piccolo jr. kame already exists dumb ass he was the good side (no kame no dragonballs no bulma meeting goku in the woods NO story) so stop talking shit and confusing ppl who don’t know any better !
