There’s not been too much marketing for M.Night Shyamalan’s adaptation of the award-winning cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender, especially with the fact that the full trailer was pushed back from its originally planned Christmas release until February. But now thanks to Yahoo, we have the first two official one-sheets for the flick alongside confirmation from producer Frank Marshall for when we’ll finally see the full trailer for The Last Airbender.
And the end of 2009 – it was only a few weeks ago, really – we reported on some scans that hit the net from a recent issue of Empire magazine. These images depicted some behind-the-scenes goodies from the production of The Last Airbender and they looked really cool.
It wasn’t that much, but now we have more in the form of two brand new posters; One features the title character of Aang (played by Noah Ringer) and the other features his nemesis, Dev Patel as Prince Zuko.
The details of the background and of the special effect of the air/smoke are what get me excited.
Again, note the details in the background which present some of the Fire Nation war ships. I dig the posters and I’m excited to see the other characters in costume and what the bending powers look like in live-action.
In addition to these official promo sheets, we finally have the unsurprising confirmation from producer Frank Marshall that the full trailer for The Last Airbender will in fact come attached to Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief which opens February 12th, just over two weeks away.
The Last Airbender is one of Screen Rant’s top 20 most anticipated films of 2010 and one of my personal top 5 must-see movies of the year.
What do you think of the posters and will you check out Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief just for the trailer?
The Last Airbender glides into theaters July 2, 2010.
