Dragonball Evolution....part 2!

American audiences loved Dragonball Evolution (a live action take on a beloved anime/cartoon series from the 80's) so much that it made around $9 million during it's time in box offices around the country! By comparison, Battlefield Earth earned over $11 million in its opening weekend. Evolution never even reached that mark during it's entire stretch in theaters. This is how much American Audiences LOVED Dragonball Evolution.

Guess what! They're making another one!

One rather excellent article suggests that perhaps it's the fact that the film earned over $45 million outside of the US that has lead them to decide to make a sequel to this steaming pile. I guess we shouldn't be surprised since the film no doubt cost a fraction of it's total earnings to create. At least it's not American audiences behind the gun this time. $9 million domestic for Evolution is a sign to me that we are getting a lot more intelligent about the films we watch. At least there's something positive to take away from all of this.

Unfortunately, that doesn't make this throbbing headache disappear. Lets pray for a straight to DVD release and hope they won't even attempt to sell the second disaster to American audiences.
