Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Gets a Theatrical Trailer for North American Release


I’m not going to lie here, while it’s been some time since I’ve been heavy into Anime, I can’t deny my deep desire to see new Dragon Ball Z stuff.  It’s among my favorite shows and something I watched vehemently when I was younger.  Fans got a treat in a form of an all new movie, bringing the classic characters to a modern generation of fans.  Sadly, it only released over in Japan, but now it’s coming to the States for a limited theatrical run (on August 5, 6, 7, & 9).  If you’ve been eagerly awaiting this new film, then today brings a treat in the form of an all new trailer:

Prepare for the Dragon Ball Z experience of a lifetime as Earth’s greatest heroes hit the big screen in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods! Stunning animation and epic new villains highlight this first new Dragon Ball feature film in over seventeen years!

Following the events from the Dragon Ball Z television series, after the defeat of Majin Buu, a new power awakens and threatens humanity. Beerus, an ancient and powerful God of Destruction, searches for Goku after hearing rumors of the Saiyan warrior who defeated Frieza. Realizing the threat Beerus poses to their home planet, the Z-fighters must find a way to stop him before it’s too late. Only Goku, humanity’s last hope, can ascend to the level of a legendary Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus from destroying Earth, and possibly the entire universe! Fans of the series will be delighted to know that Battle of Gods is an original work from Dragon Ball creator, himself, Akira Toriyama.
