Well...more like continue and go into a fervor. The movie is about a week from release and already some people have seen it, including famous anime & DBZ fan dubber Lanipator. His review of what he saw says it all. I'm sorry guys, any hope of this being somewhat of a film us fans maybe, maybe wanted is practically up in smoke. The trailers show much of what we fear but I'm a cup-half-full kind of guy. Sadly, even with my optimism...there's not much hope here for a person who looks like and personifies himself with DBZ's Trunks (yeah, yeah I'm a bit of a DBZ nerd :-/). I can't give a real opinion with out actually seeing it....but that would give money to the evil organization that makes the Red Ribbon Army look tame...20th Century Fox. Rumors have it that there is already a sequel in the mix.
Dragon Ball Evolution looks to be the biggest insult to fans and FOX's most distasteful April Fools joke. -_-
Here's a quick glimpse across the blogosphere:

The pain us anime fans will probably feel isn't over. Movies are set for the following anime/game series:

This is not an April Fools joke. Ayumi Hamazaki's new single, "Rule" is going to be the single for the movie.
Don't believe me? Here's the latest and probably the final trailer:
Wow...us anime fans are being simply smacked across the face :-(
