Last Airbender Trailer

We've been waiting a long time for this trailer. We're wondering however, why "Avatar" isn't in the title? From what we see here however, the look of the film looks great. The film looks like its going to be loaded with plenty of martial arts and tons of CG...(the Fire Nation in this clip looks pretty dart awesome)...just the way we like. The only thing this needs now, is a tight story and great character acting. Hopefully the director, Shyamalan, a story driven director, will pull through and make this one of his best films, I really like his work. Below is the trailer, and underneath that is an interview clip with the director M.Night.Shyamalan.

One controversy surrounding the Last Airbender film, is an issue surrounding race. It came up many many months ago as news of the film spread. In my classes, rumors were floating around about casting "white" actors to play the main characters of the animation. Many people were upset because the characters in the film were descendant from a multicultural society with a predominantly asian influence. So far, the main Avatar character featured in the trailer not only looks this part, but also has pretty slick bow staff moves.

And of course, for those of you who have a bo staff, but don't know how to twirl or strike with it (like me), here's a video that teaches you how to do it.
