TRAILER: The Last Airbender Teaser...

So, there may be no bigger fall from grace in modern cinema than that of the career of M. Night Shamalamadingdong. Kicking off a career with The Sixth Sense, THEN adding Unbreakable to that canon, makes his last four films all the more depressingly bad, with the proverbial kick to the crotch that was The Happening. Now we have his adaptation of the HUGELY popular Avatar: The Last Aibender animated series on Nickelodeon, and it looks like all of his eggs are in this bald little basket.

That said, it looks like he may be back, at least based on this short teaser trailer. I personally really enjoy the look of the film, and it looks like there is a lot of mythology behind the story, which is always a plus when talking about a film based around martial arts and ancient/future worlds. The scope looks to be much bigger than anything Shammer has ever done, and hopefully he will step up his game with the step up in scope. All in all, this is an awesome trailer, for what I hope will be an awesome movie. What do YOU think?

Based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon animated TV series, the live-action feature film is set in a world where human civilization is divided into four nations: Water, Earth, Air and Fire.

The Fire Nation is waging a ruthless, oppressive war against the other three nations. The film’s hero, the reluctant young Aang (Noah Ringer), is the “Last Airbender” — the Avatar who, according to prophecy, has the ability to manipulate all of the elements and bring all the nations together.

Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her bull-headed brother Sokka, Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world. Dev Patel plays the Fire Nation’s evil prince Zuko. Exiled from the Fire Nation by his father, Zuko is sent to capture the Avatar in order to restore his honor and right to the throne.

The Last Airbender is being targeted for a July 2nd 2010 release.

Go see something good!
