Dragonball Movie Piccolo

A picture of Piccolo from the movie Dragonball has surfaced online:
(Click on the picture to enlarge it.)
Piccolo - Dragonball MovieThe role of Piccolo is played by James Marster.

I'm a bit disappointed that Piccolo's face isn't green... He just looks like a Vampire from the candy girly movie Twilight.... Fox: it isn't too late to fix this!

Besides the picture of Piccolo we have some more stills from the trailer of the movie Dragonball:

I guess the film will be entertaining, but I really doubt it is going to be a blockbuster: the man in the street will not be appealed by this cheap action movie, and Dragonball fans will probably disdain to buy a theater ticket for such a lame adaptation and will just search for it on torrents...

But well, we may have a surprise eventually, so let's pray for a miracle to happen....

firstly, thats not what twilight vampires look like, if anything he is a buffy rip...secondly i believe this was a good choice. He retains a green tint which is hard to see in this pic without being a completely campy alien thing. They took the concept and beefed it up, making it more audience friendly. This is an AMERICAN movie. they cant keep all the strange and wacky anime elements

In a day where modern technology could have accurately portrayed the Dragonball universe, this is all just shameful. Fuck you, Wong!

Right. Piccolo looks like a Reman from Star Trek or a vampire. Definitaly, not like a Namek.

Honestly who cares? I've watched all the Dragonball series and I'm ready for it to come to life on the big screen. So why should it matter if the movie version doesnt retain the green Piccolo? Why cant anyone go see a movie for what it is instead of always picking the movie apart? I'm sure the DBZ correctness crew will be out in full force when the movie opens and tell us all the differences. I just wanna see a ki blast. Lol.

PLEASE RETHINK THIS Dont Ruin It For The Fans. If You Dont Know How To Do It Then Leave It For Some One Who Can. Goku Must Be Asian Piccolo Gotta Be Green With Antenas The Ladies GOOD CHOICE. Look For A New Face To Be The Star More Asian Actors The Clothes More Baggy Kinda Like A Cloth. Male Charaters Must Be Cut.

Amen to that,

Dragonball has been in my life for a very long time. I have seen all the series and movies. This is like seeing a different version of the series; whether good or bad. Its kinda like the Ultimate series in Marvel. Sometimes people who used to be white are now black ^__^

Actually if they want me to buy a ticket to watch this movie they'll make it exactly as it is SUPPOSED TO BE. Not a off-green... FULL BLOWN GREEN. To be honest it's pathetic and like the blogger said we'll just torrent it...

forgive my spelling not very good at typing.........

regardless of all the stuff they are doing too this film i hope
that db and dbz fans alike will go too see this movie lets not forget how horrible the first adaptaion
was, so it will be nice too see them try too make this one better
it may not be a blockbuster but its setting way for the movies too come no piccolo doesnt look right but havent we been pushing them too make a movie for a while now, who knows maybe the person can play piccolo like he was meant too be
or just hack it up
but you cant expect it too be like the dragon ball series its just too much story lines too follow they would of had too make a live action tv show instead and i for one would think that would be crap
soo lets just see how this is done

I can see some guys working for Fox making some pathetic attempts at trying to convince people this garbage is worth watching, despite knowing how futile their efforts are against a raging worldwide boycott movement.

No rly, Piccolo looks like Scorpius from Farscape (without the weird bondagey-like suit); just google it, it's scary.

I just wanna say that the characters is where it starts.....
I could no see this kid as playing goku..WTF??
first of all he is way to skinny..
please go look at a pic of goku.. second just seeing the pictures makes it seem like a power rangers film...
FOR it to be believable it show have the same picture editing as Sin city or 300 or something u know??
i personally just HOPE this movie is not disapointing even though its allready looking that way :(

this will be a "THUNDERBIRDS" caliber piece of junk. evidently they were to confused about what they were trying to do (and i would never go beyond blaming a "studio/weak director" combo for something like that) we can hope all we want but she's a no go folks. we can only pray that the next guy who pitches this has a really solid take on the story, or we may never see another live action dragonball movie....ever

also,

what memo am i missing, i thought goku was a kid when this all started..
