Reverend Jax Posted May 13, 2009 Share Posted May 13, 2009 (edited) Edit: I've split this topic off from the Live Action/CGI Anime and Manga movies thread Sam commented on the live action The Last Airbender movie in the American Animation thread, so I decided I would reply here. Avatar: The Last Airbender is awesome. Ending was kinda rushed, but still awesome. I'm almost afraid of what M. Night Shamalan is going to do to it in the movies. I'm cautiously optimistic, but interviews indicate alot of love for the series on Shyamalan's part. Last Airbender M. Night Shyamalan http://teaser-trailer.com />Uploaded by last-airbender-movie - Watch feature films and entire TV shows. He's committing 6 years of his life to this trilogy. The budget is estimated at $250 for the trilogy, and more of that is said to be spend on the first movie to "create the world." Some people think Shyamalan has an anti-action mentality (Unbreakable was a superhero movie with no action), but he says it was the action, the elementals, and the mythology that made him want to make the movies. There have been some good casting calls...Slumdog Millionaire's Dev Patel as Zuko (which is great because Zuko I think is a critical character in the story arc), Cliff Curtis as Fire Lord Ozai. Aang unfortunately is being played by a young karate champion from Texas with no acting experience. While this is good news for the intense action sequences that will be necessary, I'm fearful that he will be a Jake Lloyd type, and Aang's role is ten times as critical here as Anakin Skywalker was in Episode I. These two photos look good though. Southern Water Tribe Fire Nation extras I know those two things are nowhere near the hardest things this would will have to capture, but they look great. The first trailer is attached to Transformers 2 coming out this 4th of July weekend, and the movie is set to be released next 4th of July weekend, so we'll soon see how the movie's look (the trailer is supposed to be 2 minutes long).
