The latest trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender goes heavy on the plot. Special individuals can control the elements, the clans based off the different elements are going to war, and it’s up to the last airbender (Noah Ringer) to save the world from destruction. But more than the plot, I think the biggest stand out is that Last Airbender may have some cool fight scenes. I’m not sure about all the other big special effects, but Shyamalan may have figured a way to take the abilities of the individual characters (air, water, earth, fire) and use them for some cool showdowns.
The new trailer puts the “3D” stamp on the film that was announced yesterday. However, it only has two months to make the conversion and that could lead to the lousy-looking 3D we saw with Clash of the Titans. However, unlike Clash director Louis Leterrier, Shyamalan will be overseeing the conversion process. Nevertheless, the film wasn’t made with 3D in mind and Shyamalan now has to quickly figure out how to apply it to his movie. Hit the jump to check out the new trailer along with the official synopsis. The Last Airbender hits theaters on July 2nd.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Last Airbender:
Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction. Caught between combat and courage, Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother, Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), to restore balance to their war-torn world.
