Earlier this month we posted the first theatrical trailer for The Last Airbender, the feature film adaptation of the popular Nickelodeon animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. The trailer kicked all sorts of ass, and that’s coming from someone who’d barely even heard of the cartoon before the movie was announced.

The Last Airbender (they dropped the “Avatar” part because of a certain other recent blockbuster…) stars Noah Ringer as Aang, a successor to a long line of “Avatars,” who must put aside his irresponsible ways and stop the war-mongering Fire Nation from enslaving the Water, Earth and Air nations.

For all you fan of the series out there, you can look forward to some of your beloved characters being brought to life by actors like Dev Patel (Zuko), Nicola Peltz (Katara), Jackson Rathbone (Sokka) and Shaun Toub (Uncle Iroh). The film comes to us courtesy of The Sixth Sense director, M. Night Shyamalan.

Check out the exciting new TV spot below, thanks to SuperHeroHype:

As I said, I’m unfamiliar with The Last Airbender animated series but I have to say Shyamalan’s film version looks pretty great. The special effects look wonderful and Ringer as the lead character of Aang is someone I wouldn’t want to meet down a dark alley at night!

This is a real departure for Shyamalan, considering all he’s done before is supernatural thrillers with twist endings (alright, maybe The Happening didn’t have much of an ending icon razz Last Airbender TV Spot #2 ). But I’m happy to see him branch out and try something new and it looks like he’s nailed the attempt. Not that I think he’ll have trouble topping The Happening

Thoughts on the latest TV spot for The Last Airbender?

The Last Airbender hits theaters on July 2nd, 2010 in the U.S. and on August 13th, 2010 in the UK.

  1. Looks totally kick ass and I am a big fan of the series. I can't wait for it to come out.

  2. “the lead character of Aang is someone I wouldn’t want to meet down a dark alley at night!”

    hmmm If (and I know you havent) you were familiar the show you would find this statement so far from the truth it is not even funny.

    I hope they do not deviate from his childish innocence. I mean yes in the show he got angry a couple of times however most times he was just a little (sometimes nerdy/goofy) kid trying to fit in.

    The story is as much of him growing up, learning responsibilities, and harnessing the huge responsibility and power he has as it is “kicking” butt.

    Not knocking your write up, im just noticing a common theme of it being “dark” and the cartoon was anything but dark at times. I understand it will be a trilogy(?) so I hope we get to see some of the real fun stuff…..

    Seriously if you have never watched it you should try to.

  3. When did I say the show was dark? I just said he looks so badass I wouldn't want to be up against him (in a dark alley) :P

    Look in the trailers and TV spots, he uses his powers a lot and kicks a lot of asses. Doesn't he look like he could handle himself?

  4. Usually when someone states they wouldnt want to meet someone in a dark alley it eludes to the meetee(?) is a “bad” person and they would have their way with you… ;)

    As for the “dark” not you per se but the clips Ive seen make it seem “dark”. They make Aang seem “brooding”. Add that with your alley comment and it seems you perceive him as that… And of course you base it on the clips….

    Unless of course YOU are the bad guy in the alley… :D

  5. LOL, I'm not saying he's a bad guy but just that he could seriously kick my ass. This was just a throwaway comment, bud, not meant to be taken to heart as much.

  6. A new tv spot for this movie is always well recieved by me, but its a lot of the same repeated clips, I am happy with this, not so much with the narration this time as he makes it sound like a choose your own adventure book, i will be really happy when we hear aangs voice and see appa close up but this was a nice trailer

  7. he is a martial arts professional isnt he ?
    either way he suits the role (except he doesnt have the baby eyes aang from the series did).

    i hope the movie goes for 2 hours, i think that will be enough time to sum up everything (how me truely masters his powers, meets everyone and beats the bad guy).

  8. My thoughts exactly

  9. I don't know about that. I wouldn't even want to meet the TV Aang in a dark alley. Especially if he was in the avatar state, I would just say “Oh Sh*t” and get out of there because when he is like that, he is an awesome kind of scary.

  10. YIP YIP!

  11. If they are doing a trilogy he will not “beat” the bad guy in this movie.

  12. This looks amazing! I'm a huge fan of the show and so far it looks like they've adapted it well. Can it be July now?

  13. This looks awful. This is the best they can do to try to get us to see it? None of it is convincing from the acting to the visual effects. Looks like they're relying on fans of the cartoon to buy tickets. Not a chance for me.

    Anyone notice how there's no dialogue coming out of any of the actors? I bet the acting is horrible.

  14. :)

  15. STILL, no dialogue from Aang hmm….I hope that doesn't mean the acting is terrible lol.

  16. Dude it's only a TV spot, it's not supposed to be earth shattering. And the movie's months away. Chill.

    (I mean, if you don't want to see it that's up to you. My point is they're not going to show too much in a 30-sec TV spot when it's only February. They might be starting with fans of the show initially and then expanding closer to release.)

  17. Ahh! Looks so good! About to watch the show now… lol

  18. I just saw the film Kundun about the Dalai Lama. There is no denying that Ang's character in the tv show was inspired by him and also the Tibet Nation as a source for the Air Nation. With that said, the child actors in Kundun emote more than the lead in this film. The martial arts moves are horrible in all the footage shown thus far. None of the actors can sell the moves. When a tv budget sized cartoon does it better that's pretty damn sad.

    Mark my words, M. Night will not be able to top the cartoon. The studio white washing the film, even going as far as making the Moon Princess's hair blonde instead of white, cheapens the film to rubbish.

  19. Yes it does. Usually promos will have the dialogue from the film. They're hiding the bad acting.

  20. So you wont be seeing this film I suppose? What do you mean by white washing? Also it wouldnt cheapen the film it would cheapen the material it was based on, the cartoon.

    Hey are you one of those “there are no Asians” protest this movie?

  21. Go back to your cave troll. We haven't even seen any footage of their acting yet and the martial arts/ special effects look pretty damn good to me.

  22. Sweeping generalization if I ever saw one.

  23. Don't forget momo!

  24. I don't know… all the trailers have just left me with a big fat “Meh.” Perhaps the slo-mo action sequences are getting tired. I haven't seen the series, either, so I'm strictly basing my observation as a total outsider.

  25. Seriously the movie is more than 4 months away!
    We can't really know NOW what the movie would be like.
    Anyway for fellow fans of the series, cheers; but don't get your hopes up TOO high, the movie can't realistically match the original work!
    All the same this one is right on top of my 'movies to watch this year' list!!!
