Paramount Pictures has released the theatrical trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender this afternoon, following the fire of their Super Bowl spot with yet another grand two-minutes of unstoppable cool. As I’ve said before, M. Night Shyamalan has never made a movie that looks more awesome than this, at least not one that looks better in trailer form. Young Noah Ringer (the kid with the wild, glowing tattoos) has a level of intensity that is very exciting, and we can’t ignore the fact that the action looks fast and furious in all the right ways.
I would suggest that you take a moment and watch the trailer below.
Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction. Caught between combat and courage, Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother, Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), to restore balance to their war-torn world.
The Last Airbender hits theaters July 2, 2010. It also stars Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, (a very sinister-looking) Dev Patel, Jessica Jade Andres, Aasif Mandvi, Shaun Toub, Cliff Curtis and Keong Sim.
