Paramount Pictures has released a new full length movie trailer for M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender. I was somewhat impressed by the original teaser trailer which accomplished everything in one continuous (yet stitched together) shot. The television spot which aired during the Super Bowl had me completely sold. To me the spot had all the power of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The first full movie trailer sparked new doubts regarding the young actors/actresses and the film’s dialogue. The new trailer puts the story and action front and center, and has me once again excited. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump and please leave your thoughts in the comments below. I would love to hear what you thought (and please put your Shyamalan bias aside).
Official Plot Synopsis: 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 will hit theaters on July 2nd 2010.
