The Dragonball Movie slated for a release date of April 3, 2009 is an American live action film adaptation of the Dragon Ball media franchise. These new screenshots shows the various characters such as Justin Chatwin as Goku, Jamie Chung as Chi Chi, Emmy Rossum as Bulma, Chow Yun Fat as Master Roshi and Eriko Tamura as Mai.
I’m a bit skeptical how this movie would turn out since Dragonball is an over-the-top stylized animated series but with Stephen Chow as a producer, it does seems that the movie could turn out good.

Dede Koswara dubbed the Tree Man is back after nine months of operations to remove the woody growth from his body. He was once sacked from his job, deserted by his wife and shunned by his neighbors – treated like a freak becaused of his gnarled growths sprouting from his hands and feet.

‘Get Much More For Much Less’ is the theme for these Buenos Aires Zoo ads. Why spend so much on plush toys when you can go to the zoo and see the real animals? Well the comparison is way off since you own a plush toy while you can only make a visit to the zoo and take a look at the animals. Anyway the uncanny resemblance deserves some creative merit and advertisement agency Saatchi & Saatchi of Argentina are the creative minds behind these ads.
