Dragonball Trailer Delayed
12.03.08 by REELZ
It looks like Dragonball fans will have to wait a
little bit longer for their first official glimpse of Fox's live-action
adaptation of Akira Toriyama's hugely popular manga/anime series. The
Dragonball trailer had been set to debut on December 12 in front of IMAX
screenings of Keanu Reeves' The Day the Earth Stood Still remake, but news
emerged early this morning on dragonballmovieblog.net that it will not be
ready in time for the deadline. A source at Fox has confirmed to us that the
Dragonball trailer debut has indeed been pushed back, and that a new date has
not yet been determined.
Any number of issues could account for the delay, but we're guessing that problems were encountered while tailoring the CGI-heavy trailer for the expanded IMAX format, which projects at 70mm -- as opposed to the 35mm film used in conventional theaters.
Whatever the case, we'll be sure to keep you posted as more details
emerge on this latest setback for one of 2009's most-anticipated movies. Until then, check out our Dragonball preview.
