Various elements get bent in the new trailer for The Last Airbender

04.23.2010

The new trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's THE LAST AIRBENDER is packed with flashy FX -- just think how much more dazzling they'll look in 3D! Assuming the studio has enough time to do a better conversion than CLASH OF THE TITANS, anyway...

The live-action adaptation of the Miyazaki-influenced animated TV series (which drops the original AVATAR name, for the obvious Cameron-related reasons) is set in a fantasy world and follows a reluctant young hero who can manipulate the elements using martial arts and CGI. The movie opens July 2nd.

Check out the last trailer below or in HD at Apple.

Extra Tidbit: "The Daily Show" correspondent Aasif Mandvi is in this? I might have to see it just to watch him playing it straight.

Nicee

Yeah..I will also take mine 2D thank you very much.

On a side note, This actually gives me hope they will do a Naruto Shippudden or even a Bleach movie in a decent way. M.Night, get on that.
That is all.

These trailers are looking awesome...maybe he just needed to get back to his 'adaptation roots' - I mean come on, the first Stuart Little was awesome. Based on these trailers I am hopping back aboard the Shyamalan express...and hopefully it has a better destination than recent trips.

This trailer just got me more excited. The movie might be cool in 3D, but I'll wait and see if the conversion is good enough.

2 things about this movie

ya its amazing how now its in 3D but if you saw clash of the titans you know how crappy not shooting in 3D is, and second this looks alright but maybe if you saw characters that look like the characters you would be alot more intrigued than this piece of work with Caucasian good guys and minority bad people.

I'm sorry, what ethnicities are you choosing to read into the cartoon that aren't being reproduced in the film adaptation?

FAIL.

looks cool

2d here as well. But sadly, the ill-informed idiots of our population (80%) will go see it in 3d, and this will further push 3d conversion blockbuster movies.

Why spend money on making it actual 3d with the cameras when you can sell it to morons?

Yes...

Welcome back M. Night. I love this series and it looks like M. Night is a fan too. I am hoping Aang's childlike persona will come through in the film but even though the trailers havent displayed this they have succeeded in doing what they needed to. A ticket will be mine... oh yes indeed.

Btw. 2D is the way to go. I want this 3D fad to die quickly. Films shouldnt be about gimmicks, it irks me everytime you see a character fling something at the screen (cough cough Titans) just for the sake

Looks bad ass, but . . .

I'm really missing the humour of the original series. Aang was this goofy, charming little kid who happened to be the Avatar, and Uncle Iroh was a brilliant foil for the obsessed Zuko. I hope that element (hee-hee) comes through in the film, because I'm not seeing it here.

Cannot Wait!!

Huge Shamalan fan, and am glad he doesn't use tons of CGI usually, but this just looks soo damn cool, and it seems that CGI was the only way to really bring it to life.

Ok first off I am a Night fan and have always been. Sure, its been kinda downhill since THE VILLAGE and THE HAPPENING could have been the comeback if he didn't make it out to be a hammy twilight zone episode. But to me, I feel like he has sold out (rightfully so) because he was one of the few directors who would use little to no CGI. But this looks pretty badass.

AWESOME!!!!

M. Night seems to be pulling this thing together quite nicely.

My only problem with that trailer is that Aang looked too scared talking to the Face Stealer. He isn't supposed to show ANY emotion. Oh and looks like Aang wont be manipulating the big ass water spirit. But thats no biggie.

Cant wait for this! My most anticipated film of the summer, hell maybe even the year!

Why would the 3D give you a bad feeling? They are pretty much being forced to do it.

And if you dont like 3D then dont watch it in 3D. They shouldn't affect your 2D viewing experience
