While I wasn’t too impressed with the Super Bowl spot for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender, Yahoo! Movies has now debuted a full trailer for the film and it serves as a good reminder that while Shyamalan has seemingly lost all his talent for writing, he’s quite talented with his visuals. Rather than crumble under the weight of a his first blockbuster feature, it looks like Shyamalan has created a rather impressive world in both the visual effects, the costuming, and set design. Whether there’s a good script underneath all of this remains to be seen, although he has at least some guidance with this being his first adaptation rather than a new story from his dried-up mind grapes.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with the official synopsis. The Last Airbender hits theaters on July 2nd.
For those just tuning in, 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.
Based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon animated TV series, the live-action feature film “The Last Airbender” is the opening chapter in Aang’s struggle to survive.
