New Airbender Banners and Trailer News

airbender_header

Throw what you want, it won’t stick anyway – I’m really looking forward to M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender. It seems to me that he’s got just the skills, story instincts and appropriate technical discipline to pull off a film of this type.

Yahoo have unveiled two banners for the film, one showcasing the fire nation and Dev Patel‘s villainous prince Zuko, the other Noah Ringer as the air nation’s Aang, our hero. See them in full below the break.

Meanwhile, over on Twitter, the film’s producer Frank Marshall has today spilled a couple of details on the trailer, perhaps to assuage fears of a heavy air-vs-fire bias.

The AIRBENDER trailer will be about 2 minutes long…

The AIRBENDER trailer will feature all the main characters…

The Last Airbender Teaser Trailer

The Last Airbender

The official teaser trailer for M Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender is now online. On display are M Night’s signature extended seamless single takes (which I’ve always loved), ILM’s amazing air-bending effects and a logo that looks very similar to the Harry Potter series. Overall, it does a great job at teasing the big picture. I’m suddenly excited to see if this is the film that all the Avatar fans believe it can be. Paramount believes they have the first part of a trilogy. But who knows? Don’t call it a comeback just yet, but I think M Night will have the interest of his harshest critics after this teaser debuts in front of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Thanks to /Film reader Thurston for the tip. Watch the trailer now after the jump. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below.

zuko_comparison

The first official images from M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender appeared yesterday when US Today presented stills of Noah Ringer as Aang and Dev Patel as the ‘evil’ Zuko . I think that the first unofficial image of Zuko is much better however. I’ve presented a little of it above, with the whole thing lurking below the break.

I had the picture e-mailed to me overnight, without any explanation or fanfare. I’d reckon that it’s a screen capture from the teaser trailer. That teaser is due to unspool before Transformers 2 so the encode for online has doubtlessly already been done and I’d eat my shoe if that wasn’t the source of this image.

the last airbender

Above is the first photo of Aang (Noah Ringer), the “Last Airbender,” a 12-year-old regional karate star was who discovered in a Texas open casting call. After the jump we’ve also included a tv to film comparison of Dev Patel as Prince Zuko.

Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle and star Dev Patel are in talks to appear on the real Who Wants to Be A Millionaire. This according to The Sun, if it happens, the two would play together on a celebrity edition where the winnings would be donated to an Indian children’s charity.

Wouldn’t it be great if Freida Pinto, who plays the romantic lead in the film, was available to be the “phone a friend” option? I have a feeling that the real life Pinto probably wouldn’t be of much help on a large money question (she wasn’t much of a help at that moment in the film), but it would be cool none the less. Wait a second, is Who Wants to Be a Millionaire even still on tv?

Vanity Fair hired Annie Leibovitz to photograph “10 partnerships that helped generate more than four dozen Oscar nominations this season.” If you’ve ever seen any of Leibovitz‘s photographs before (and you have, even if you don’t know it) than you know what to expect. She is somehow able to capture the life, natural realism and character of any of her subjects. And yes, the Christopher Nolan / Heath Ledger photo is a composite. Check out all the photos on VanityFair.com. Thanks to /Film reader Josh B for the tip.
