Above are the first two posters for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender, with Dev Patel’s evil character Zuko on the right and Noah Ringer’s character Aang on the left. It’s been nearly 7 months since the impressive teaser trailer hit the internet, I’m not fully convinced about this though, just for the fact that M. Night’s last film was The Happening, that film was so bad it felt like a con, it was a huge, steaming, smelly turd of a film if there ever was one. I still think M. Night is a talented director (which frustrated me even more) and I believe this sort of source material will bring the best out of him. Look out for the trailer in Febuary

Based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon animated TV series, The Last Airbender 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.
