Dev Patel in M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender Trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
THE LAST AIRBENDER is one of those films that’s based off a Nickelodeon franchise/show/book that I know nothing about. I had the same problem with DIARY OF A WIMPY KID in that I think I just didn’t get it. Both of these trailers make me feel old, like all the kids are in on a joke that I can’t understand. But I do have to admit that M. Night Shyamalan’s THE LAST AIRBENDER at least looks pretty cool with the the special effects and action. Shyamalan need a hit worse than any director in recent memory, so I’m hoping he gets it with this adaptation. The cast is made up of mostly unknowns with the exception of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE’S Dev Patel. The film hits theaters on July 2nd.
