Paramount will stick to the  holiday weekend to debut The Last Airbender, but the studio has bumped up the release one day to Thursday, July 1, 2010.  The M. Night Shyamalan family-friendly martial arts film will now hit theaters just one day after the behemoth that is The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Looking to next year, Sony has pushed the 3D release of Priest from March to May 13, 2011, where it will face off against the Kristen Wiig comedy Bridesmaids.  The pair is nestled in the eye of a box office storm, with Marvel tentpole Thor opening a week earlier on May 6, 2010, and Pirate of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (3D) the following week on May 20, 2011.  You can find synopses for Airbender and Priest after the break.

Here’s the 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.

I want so badly for this to be good — love the TV series.

Here’s the synopsis for Priest:

A warrior priest (Paul Bettany) disobeys Church law by teaming with a young sheriff (Cam Gigandet) and a beautiful priestess (Maggie Q).  The three band together to track down a band of renegade vampires who have kidnapped the priest’s niece before they turn her into one of them.
