Well, here it is.
That’s Justin Chatwin as Son Goku, the poster apparently says “The legend comes to life”, with the release date at the bottom obviously being March 13, 2009.
My initial take it on it? What’s with the pants? The costume in general seems less than stellar, and the photography looks a little less than professional quality too. It seems like something me and my buddies could have done with Photoshop and some leftover fabric from a Naruto costume. But it’s just the first poster, maybe they’ll have more in mind. I worry more about James Marsters as Piccolo though. If the makeup for that is less than amazing, this movie is dead in the water.
The pic was released on the website of the Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun. You can see the google translated version of the announcement here
Just for fun, here’s a previously released promotional shot of Chatwin as Goku.
