Trailers: ‘The Last Airbender’
Posted by Brian on 06/23/2009
Here’s the teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s adaptation of the Nickelodeon cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender. I personally think this looks great, but Shyamalan’s problem has never been directing; it’s his storytelling. Hopefully working from a source where he isn’t creating everything is what he needs to get reinvigorated. The film stars newcomer Noah Ringer, Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), Nicola Peltz, and Jackson Rathbone (Twilight).
Avatar: The Last Airbender takes place in a fantasy world that is home to humans, fantastic animals, and spirits. Human civilization is divided into four nations: the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Air Nomads, and the Fire Nation. Each nation has its own natural element, on which it bases its society. Within each nation exists an order called “Benders” who have the ability to manipulate the eponymous element of their nation.
