The elements collide in new Last Airbender theatrical trailer

02.10.2010

There's a new full-length theatrical trailer for THE LAST AIRBENDER that just made its debut on Yahoo! and as much as it pains me to say it, I think it actually looks pretty damn decent.

I don’t need to go into a long-winded explanation about why I’ve lost faith in M. Night Shyamalan; anyone whose seen his past three movies knows the answer to that, but I am starting to feel like a genre change will do the man well, and I’m curious to see how he handles a blockbuster.

In the new trailer, we get to see a lot more elemental fighting, which looks like a Captain Planet episode on crack. As cool as all this is, I do have to say that star Noah Ringer and villain Dev Patel are two of the least intimidating leads I’ve ever seen, but hopefully the script and special effects will make us forget all about that.

Check it out below and head over to Yahoo! for HD.

Extra Tidbit: The Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi is in this too? Good stuff. Get Aziz Ansari in there, and that's all my favorite Indians in one place.

Damn it! That looked good. And I really wanted to hate this movie, too.

trailer did look cool, i just hope they dont make it TOO serious. they are just kids after all. all the trailers make Ang act like Neo from the matrix.

YES!

I think most of us are gonna be surprised just how awesome this movie will be. Yes The Happening was turd, but come on all directors have there turds. Well most of them, I'm ready for the resurrection of M.Night.

I don't even know how I ended up watching this show, but I did one day and was hooked. I am looking forward to the movie and hoping for the best. Aside from some of the casting choices the trailers have looked solid.

BTW, the two leads aren't suppose to be the most intimidating characters ever. Especially Ang (Noah Ringer) as the Avatar. A big part of it is that he is just a kid having to deal with all this shit.

Hmmm....

I really felt like that was just a very long teaser than an actual trailer. Aang didnt say one word!

But nonetheless, I've watched the whole series and I gotta say, this looks promising. I cant wait to see this film!!

I really hope M. Night makes his comeback with this film.

Oh and I was worried about the Fire Nation not being able to produce fire at will due to the tv spot, but this trailer thankfully smashed my worries. YES!

I can't get into it. There's something cheesy about the whole thing, plus Shaymalan really f ucked up with The Happening. I still think Unbreakable is his best film and I was even kind to The Village, thinking it was just poorly marketed, but this looks awful.

I already didn't like Dev Patel after Slumdog, but I didn't know he was the villain. That has to be the worst casting choice of the year thus far. Sorry I'm sure I'll get hated on for this, and if you're into it, to each his own I

I cant see your reasoning. Dev Patel surprised the hell outta me and I'm still not convinced he can pull off Prince Zuko.

But I believe in M. Night so I'm not too worried :)

don't know the show, didn't like the last two Niht movies, but he has proven himself a director to look out for, and this looks like fun. hopefully it will get a bit of an adventure tone (i.e. some lighthearted moments)

I'm an abashed Night fan, I mean really, when your worst movie is "Signs", I am totally behind you.

This looks very exciting with some excellent action, can't wait!

Just like all of the other trailers released for a Shyamalan film, I'm not gonna get my hopes up.

Wow, I think M. Night Smallama finally felt like proving himself. this man clearly knows how to make a big budget special effects film. Compare this to those garbage trailers for the Dragon Ball movie (seriously, somebody needs to convince M. Night to reboot that DBZ)
