Saw the movie in Cartersville, GA last night. I actually held off from watching the subbed version somehow when it became available on the internet and was glad I did.

I went into the movie knowing that Goku loses, but that's all that I knew. I thought he was going to lose via the Beerus blast, so I was really impressed when he absorbed it all up!

The theatre I went to did not have Battle of Gods posted anywhere, so for a second I thought they weren't even showing it (even though I confirmed beforehand)

Our theatre was surprisingly full. Believe it was almost at capacity and the crowd was great.

The theatre had issues starting the movie for some reason, after the previews ended it went to black for like 5-10 minutes, and during that someone yelled out "Next time on Dragon Ball Z!" which was great.

Overall, I just simply had a really good time. I was surprised at not only how many people showed up (even a few Cosplayers as Goku, albeit poor jobs of them) but how good the movie was. I honestly did not think I would enjoy it as much as I did. I feel like it's the early 2000s all over again and I hope that Akira continues to do this.

So after hobbling 4 miles to the theater in crutches, I have just arrived at the AMC and have gotten my ticket. Currently in the room waiting for it to start. Will post back when I get home as to how it was.

You know what? This was the perfect time to do that.

I would've gladly paid a premium price for a double feature. BoG and then Movie 12 or 13 afterwards would've been the perfect showing.

Looks like I'll be seeing it on theaters after all. I'll be seeing it on Saturday at 12 at Tower Theater. Can't wait! :D

Just got back from my showing, and overall my experience was great! We had a Vegeta cosplayer which surprisingly looked pretty damn good! Since the movie had a lot of comedic moments there was a bunch of laughter from the crowd which made me miss some lines spoken since they were really loud, also there were two people behind us who were talking through a lot of the scenes though, which was really annoying :roll:

I was also surprised to see so many people at my theater, it didn't see like there was much marketing for the release. I can't say what I thought of the dub overall though, since I haven't seen the Japanese version in almost a year so I can't really compare the lines. But I found the voice acting to be great! (even though Kaio-sama's voice is cringe worthy) and I thought the actors nailed the comedic moments, the average anime episode joke was great :lol: (was that in the original Japanese version? I can't remember).

Yep, it was. And it got a huge laugh in my theatre. Although as long as we're on the subject of that scene, I hated the fact that they didn't use the name "oracle fish." For some reason, that name tickles me quite a bit, and the fact that they went with the nondescript "sage" just confused me.

Seer, that was probably it. I knew it started with an "s". Thank you. But, yeah, point still stands. It's just so bland and not ... oracle fish!

Hmm...I just thought of something, in regards to the ending credits of the film, since someone mentioned earlier that they did leave the manga-pages-flipping stuff, as well as even having Schemmel do a Kamehameha for the very last part. In regards to the manga pages flipping, did they just leave that part alone entirely, or did they like...re-do that only with the English manga pages? I'm going to assume the former, since the latter would most likely entail talking to Viz, as well as just being more trouble than it's worth just for the end credits, but it would be a nice little change for the English version of the film.

...Though I guess that would entail them either ONLY having that version (which would bug a lot of people), or having two video tracks, something they haven't done in years.

Just got back. It was pretty cool. The dub was excellent and they did a great job with the script. The crowd was packed and the people were good aside from this one bratty little shit who wouldn't SHUT THE FUCK UP. Beerus' anime joke, the entire Pilaf scene, and Goku imitating Vegeta got the biggest laughs. And when Goku asked Beerus to give him 5 minutes someone said "5 minutes? We're gonna be here all day" and everybody laughed

Bulma: Of course! I'm not gonna pull a Frieza and screw it up!

Ah, that would make sense then!

Overall, it was nice. The drive was a bit too far away for my tastes, but still worth it. Some glitches at first, as my brother and cousin had no money on them, so they didn't get in as early as I did. They needed to have money transferred. Overall, the sound system worked well! It was a full theater. We had to leave about 10 mins before it ended (after the end of the fight).
It was odd to kinda hear modern slang in a Dragon Ball dub, but I welcome it. The humor was well adapted, people laughed at most of the right moments. Had an 'Oh!' or two when Beerus slapped Bulma.

The one annoying part was: Goku had his second burst for Super Saiyan God as he's getting hit by Beerus' attack. A guy a row or two behind me felt the need to unnessciarily quote TeamFourStar and yell 'SENZU BEAN!' and as Goku's recovering/giving up he yelled 'Space Duck'... There's a time and place to enjoy TFS, but that annoyed me, my brother and cousin to no end (they also have never seen TFS, so they were confused).

Nope, it was the exact same un-translated Kanzenban pages and panels.

I remember Beerus calling "Seer! Seer!", but at some point someone did call he/she/it "Oracle Fish" as well. In that respect it's like how the movie called Beerus "Beerus the Destroyer" and "God of Destruction", though the latter was more rare, unfortunately.

Thanks for the answer. That was what I figured, would have been too much trouble to do anything else, but it would have been a nice touch.

I don't think funi has the rights to Viz's translation so they'd have to translate it themselves which would've been a waste of time

Also, I wound up sitting in front of a subbie who kept saying "SIGH-an!" when Beerus first mentioned the Super Saiyan form. :|
