It is difficult to say what exactly everyone was expecting from director M. Night Shyamalan and his latest work, The Last Airbender. Although, we can be almost certain that they didn’t expect the level of cool that we see in the first teaser trailer.
The film is a live-action adaptation of an immensely successful Nickelodeon animated series, set in a world where human civilization is split into four nations: Water, Earth, Air and Fire. And as the Fire nation wages a ruthless war, one young hero named Aang (Noah Ringer), the ‘Last Airbender’ — the one Avatar who is said to be able to manipulate all of the elements and bring all the nations together, must reluctantly join the fight with the help of a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her bull-headed brother Sokka.
Of course, Aang must steer clear of the Fire nation’s evil, exiled prince Zuko (Dev Patel), who has set out to find and capture the Last Airbender in order to earn a way back into his father’s good graces. And as you can see from the teaser below, he’s bringing all the firepower he can find. Although I would urge him to watch out, as that little Airbender kid is kind of a badass.
The Last Airbender hits theaters on July 2, 2010.
