After all the TV spots, we finally have a full trailer for Manny Shyamalongalong’s The Last Airbender, starring captain sullen face from Slumdog (Dev Patel). It looks okay, I guess. Certainly a lot better than other CGI-heavy fantasy flicks like Prince of Persia or Clash of the Titans. But then M. Night always had a knack for visuals, it was more the crappy stories that were parables for how everyone who criticized him sucks that people had a problem with.
Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction. Caught between combat and courage, Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother, Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), to restore balance to their war-torn world.
Meanwhile, his uncle Charlie, a Drinkblender, sat around all day making martinis. Everyone always liked Charlie.
Aang, huh? This must be that show that deaf kid was trying to tell me about.
