"Dragonball," the film based on Akira Toriyama's manga, seems to be getting a new title.
According to ComingSoon.net, "20th Century Fox may have extended the title of its upcoming "'Dragon Ball adaptation to 'Dragonball Evolution.'"
I have no idea what is up with that at all.
According to The Geek Files, "Written and directed by James Wong, the big screen version stars Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Jamie Chung, Emmy Rossum, Eriko Tamura, Joon Park, Chow Yun-Fat, Texas Battle, Randall Duk Kim and Ernie Hudson. The movie will be released on April 8. Fox has also registered the domain name DragonballEvolutionmovie.com, which confirms the new name for the film.
The Japanese comic book - about the adventures of Son Goku as he searches the world for seven wish-granting mystical objects known as the Dragon Balls - has already been adapted into three cartoon series, seventeen animated films, three TV specials and numerous video games."
I still don't get it, but if the title for the movie changed, that is fine with me. I will still see it just because it is "Dragonball."
What are your thoughts on the sudden name change? Do you think it is even necessary?
