I'm lazy so here's the article from here

Even though here in the United States, Dragonball Evolution was a massive flop hated by everyone but the most self-loathing of Dragonball fans… it’s getting a sequel. James Marsters, who played the villain Lord Piccolo in the first film, confirmed the rumors in an interview with a fansite. Marsters says that after his upcoming concert tour, “we’ll start shooting the second Dragonball movie. I’ve just heard that I can actually tell that there is going to be a sequel.”

Even the Dragonball fan community seems less than enthused by this announcement. The question everyone seems to be asking is: “Why god why?!”. Here’s why:

Dragonball Evolution made only a miserable $9 million dollars, total, domestically. Unfortunately it seems international audiences are a little less savvy than American crowds. Overseas this bright and shining turd made $45 million. In particular it was big in both Japan and China. Meanwhile Fox spent almost no money at all advertising it and the cast was comprised mainly of genre television castoffs, so it’s not like they spent anything on salaries. There’s a chance that it may actually have made a profit and of course Fox assumes that if people in China watched this shit the first time there’s every reason to think they’ll happily watch more of it. It’s Asia that’s to blame for this sequel tragedy so here’s my suggestion: Keep it out of America. No one wants it, it wastes space in our movie theaters and seeing the Dragonball Evolution name followed by a number 2 on our marquees would only be a depressing reminder that it’s now China’s mental midgets, not ours, who control which shitty movies Hollywood will make. Make it if you must, but don’t bother releasing it here. Dragonball is Asia’s Larry the Cable Guy and we already have our own Larry the Cable guy. We don’t need someone else’s.

The first was quite possibly one of the worst movies ever made.

I would honestly like to see a remake but with some money behind it, larger dragon balls and you need the whole cast and crew and to tell the story almost fight for fight i think until you get Goku more well known to the masses.

If they did the Braddock arc of the Dragonball Z series it would be similar to what Man of Steel just did but with less media attention. I think one of the big problems with turning the show into a movie is that they always fly off to the middle of no where and movie goers like to watch things get blown up and destroyed.

The size of the dragon balls was the least of the movie's worries.

@degraaf: They just reminded me of the smaller ones from the original Dragon Ball series. But yes. Bad movie.

You should be paying attention to these important details. It's like a doctor telling the wrong person they have cancer.

LOL, yeah. I always check the date when it comes to weird news, mainly because many people tend to report April Fools gag articles as news.

You know, I never saw this movie but I'm curious: did they actually do that thing they said they'd do about having "fist-cams" in the movie?

I would love a big budget remake... preferably directed by Snyder... And written by someone other than a 5 year old boy.
