New Last Airbender trailer continues to impress

03.25.2010

I'm not a fan of the "Avatar" series on Nickelodeon. Not that I dislike it; not at all. I'm just almost completely unaware of it. I've seen bits and pieces but I've probably seen more of its upcoming live-action movie, THE LAST AIRBENDER, than I have of the cartoon itself. But what I have seen of this movie, even though I'm not a fan of the cartoon, has me impressed.

This new trailer continues the fine footage we've seen from the movie but when I was talking about this with someone else, they mentioned that Shyamalan always seems to have great trailers (and lately not-so-great films). He just directs movies that lend themselves to epic trailer moments (not unlike Zack Snyder and Roland Emmerich). But does that make a great movie? So far reports out of test screenings haven't been very positive but the movie is still some time away and hopefully Shyamalan uses that time wisely. Check out the new trailer below and let me know what you think.

Extra Tidbit: I think the tagline should be "Bend This."

Im all for it. Shamylian's said that Momo was in it. But i agree with red here, Aang didn't get all depressed until later in the show. I hope they stay true to his character in the movie

I thought the main character was supposed to be uppity and charismatic, not some lone wolf.

You can tell in this trailer that they showed the pieces when Aang leaves the group or gets captured. I'm sure he'll be the hyper kid, but they just arent using that to market the film. Strange though, because this is more geared to kids.

I'm convinced they turned Aang from a very immature child to a more grown up warrior. I'll welcome this adjustment.

Shyamalan does a 180

Never really watched the show but this looks really good. 'Don't call it a comeback?'

Bring on Unbreakable 2 next.

Hmmmm....

I really am excited for this, I'm a huge fan of the show and M. Night is one of my favorite directors. Its my number 1 movie to see this summer.

BUT....i'm still a little worried that the Fire Benders cant create fire out of thin air....which they should be able to. I hope M. Night didnt do something like that.

It kinda makes me think what would it be like if they brought Naruto into the real life adaptation..then again...Dragonball says alot about why maybe it shouldnt happen..

Oh man...Naruto is my favorite long-running anime series, as much as I'd love to see it live action I just dont think its possible and I hope no one attempts it anytime soon

WATCH THE ORIGINAL CARTOON, MIKE!

You'll thank me for it later.

I'm pumped to see this flick, although I can tell M. Night's directing this thing like his career's on the line (which it is). That said, it would be really difficult for him to mess this up, and it's seriously on my list when it hits theatres.

Thumbs up but could use more bending and less push-ins on dramatic facial expressions and poses.

this is the only website that i know that makes you watch their own ads before watching a trailer...which is another ad. you're only supposed to show ad's for your own content. but you guys really dont have much. anyways movie looks great.

Nada...

I'm sorry, this does absolutely nothing to me. Except making me think that the chick seems to either have very corny line, be a very corny actress or a bit of both...

It will take a lot more than this trailer to revive my faith in M. Night.

Looks like Night is directing it like his career depends on it....oh, it probably is. I'm still interested though.

Yup

Except for some very fast "new" footage this trailer is no different from the last realease.
I'm unfamiliar with the cartoon but I'm willing to give Shyamalan one last try.

Almost identical to the trailer released weeks/months ago other than a couple of minor seconds towards the end.

Still looking forward to it though, looks great.

Doesn't look as good as the teaser. It seems to be missing the playfulness from the cartoon series.
