lol I don't ever remember "Japan" remaking any movies from america but your reasoning is just an excuse to justify that american actors should be use instead.If that's the case why not use asian american actors? .sure they aresome backup roles asian actors like chi chi (not suprising), master roshi,yamcha ect but all eyes will be focused on Goku.Sadly this movie will also promote the idea that goku being brought from a white american background and that's just wrong. He's an asian created character and always will be.This is an international movie more people would be watching and get all confused of the facts.

american superhero adaptations are really good....it's just okay, but let see if it's really good......it's too early to judge.....
Racist--i don't think so.....of course it's an american film--so they have the right to cast their own pipz....

it's hollywood of course they have to make adaptations and some changes to fit and cater to their viewers otherwise what's the point of redoing it at all, with the remake of hana kimi in taiwan do you expect them to cast japanese actors hehehe.. i think it's more racist to claim unfounded discriminations - to claim what is for asians and what is not.. this is a borderless world anyway, it's been years since the asian entertainment industry borrow ideas from hollywood now it's the other way around - so i interpret this as a compliment to asian writers and moviemakers instead..

lol i dint say that japan made one. I was making an example for people to understand easily. well I just saw the trailer and from the looks of it. IT SUCKS. and whats with the hostility about a white guy playing a role of an asian dude. I just dont get it.(by the way im asian) so im not defending. I think most of the people that will watch this show already knows about the series so dont worry about people getting confused.

I would have liked to seen an Asian play Goku that's just how I think of Goku. But I personally never
think of the ethnicity of the characters when I watch a movie, just if it's good
This movie is going to have stiff competition next year so 20 Century Fox has to produce a movie to
go up against such movies as the Watchmen etc. I saw the sneak peak of the trailer on
http://dbthemovie.com/ and it does seem to hold it's own. I'm likely one of the few people here
actually looking forward to the release. The official movie trailer will be in theaters Dec. 18, 2008
in time for the holidays. Here is a sneak peak at some movie photos.


filming in Durango


Goku/Bulma


Mai


Master Roshi


Chi Chi and Bulma


Big production




ha the united nations

Umm your point also shows a very good reason why asians never make it big in america.

You're getting mad at such a trivial thing? It's not a big deal.
