Only days after the first TV spot for M. Night Shyamalan's new movie, The Last Airbender, aired during Superbowl XLIV at a reported cost of $2.5 million, Paramount Pictures has released the first full theatrical trailer. Produced in conjunction with MTV Films and Nickelodeon Movies, Shyamalan's movie is based on the popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon and the Nicktoons Network. The movie is the first chapter in a planned trilogy.
The Last Airbender takes place in a fantastic world where the Air, Water, and Earth Nations have been consumed in conflict with the cruel Fire Nation. All hope for a peaceful world seems lost until the discovery that young Aang (played by Noah Ringer) is the last remaining Avatar, a being capable of controlling all four elements. Accompanied by Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), Aang quests to defeat Fire Lord Ozai (Cliff Curtis) and bring an end to the conflict that has nearly destroyed his world.
