Premiered by IGN UK and IGN AU, the video footage gives out more on the story behind the mystical orbs from which the film takes its name as well as sneak peeks of the martial arts sequences.

Produced by Stephen Chow, it features mixed theps from Hollywood to Asian actors, including Emmy Rossum, James Marsters, Eriko Tamura, Park Joon Hyung and Jamie Chung. Previously set to be having a U.S. release on April 10, 2009, this 20th Century Fox film has been pushed forward to April 8, 2009 tentpole.

this movie's no easy task, if they leave fans satisfied then that's great! if only some find it alright then they could still make a sequel

Just thing of it as a parody. It's something very different from the dragonball manga but it could still be very good as a movie. I bet if it had a different title and different character names everyone would rush to see it, it's just that is different than the live movie everyone was expecting to see after all these years of waiting. I for one am going to watch this film and then i will be able to see what it's worth.

Jesus people if you are true DB fan you want this made more than ever and loking forward to it praying that it is done right, Fox has done plenty of good adaptations and for all of this DBZ crap ITS DRAGONBALL the first series aired before DBZ, there is no vegeta no kid gohan just younger Goku fighting fucking piccolo thats the whole story and as you can see THATS WHAT THIS MOVIE IS ABOUT, so all you haters shut the hell up and admire what they are trying to do, it is no small task. Thanks!!! looked incredible
