Ayumi Hamasaki to Sing Live-Action Dragonball's Theme Song

Post by Magica » Wed Dec 10, 2008 6:05 am

I honestly wasn't sure where to post this exactly, as there's been an increase in live action threads lately, and it's hard enough to get through all the baww finding or posting vital info. Then I figured that since it's music related I'll post it here. :D

"Rule" theme song to be heard in Dragonball: Evolution film in over 60 countries

The Sports Nippon newspaper reports that popular musical artist Ayumi Hamasaki will sing the "Rule" theme song for James Wong and 20th Century Fox's live-action Dragonball: Evolution film adaptation of Akira Toriyama's Dragonball manga. Fox plans to use the song as the movie's theme in over 60 countries around the world. The up-tempo rock number will be released in 2009. The film itself will open in Japan on March 13 and then on April 8 in the United States.

The newspaper adds that Wong is a big Hamasaki fan who had heard all of her songs, and so he asked Fox to have her sing the theme song. Hamasaki commented, "Dragonball is one of the anime that I've liked for a long time. I look forward to having the Dragonball world embraced by every country." Hamasaki also sang theme songs for Inuyasha and SHINOBI.

The unofficial Dragonball - The Movie blog reports that the British Board of Film Classification is listing the first theatrical trailer ("trailer C") for the film at one minute, 49 seconds in length.

Totally agreed. She has a fantastic voice that is very fitting of an epic score. If anything will make that movie somewhat redeeming (in before shitstorm), it'll be her. Cool beans. :)
