The new trailer for Avatar is out, no not the James Cameron movie but M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender, which is based on the cartoon Avatar. Thankfully he picked a different title or we could have had all kinds of 9/Nine confusion again.

The movie is a live-action adaptation of the successful Nickelodeon animated TV series which is set in a world where mankind is divided into four nations: Water, Earth, Air and Fire. Aang is our hero, the last Airbender, a soul fated to bring all the nations together. Nothing is ever that easy though as the Fire Nation would rather that he be destroyed so that they can continue to wage war on the rest of the world.

The new trailer is remarkably similar to the last one, but thankfully has some new footage and even a chance for our hero to speak towards the end. M. Night’s movies of late have been a bit shall we say lacking, but this promises to be completely different from anything he’s done before and is a great chance at starting over.

The movie will be released July 2nd.

    Wasn’t very impressed by another trailer I saw for this. But curious to see what Shyamalan has done with the story. (Thought I recognized the characters from the Nick toons)
