“My hair isn’t all blue in the film and Justin Chatwin’s hair isn’t 10-feet high, so I think everything changes a bit or gets lost in translation, so I hope that [the fans are] pleased,” Rossum offers. “I think the core of what it it and the core of the story and the core of the characters is the same.”
Rossum hopes that fans will at least watch the film before writing it off. Which is an understandable hope, but on the other hand, it's kind of odd-- if all the Dragonball fans go and see the film to determine if it's as bad as they think, then the ticket sales make it a success.
I can understand her desire to not have the movie written off out of hand, but at the same time, it doesn't seem fair to expect fans who haven't liked the trailers and stills released so far to go and see the movie because it might be better than it looks-- it's the marketers' responsibility to sell the movie, and if fans don't think it looks good, that's a marketing failure, not just fans being closed-minded meanie-butts.
What do you think? Should fans set aside their preconceived notions based on the materials offered so far and see the movie, or is it fair for them to look at those materials and decide it looks too bad to be worth their money?
