Although kids' films of this caliber (or maybe it won't be a kids' film) I usually don't go in-depth on, but I need to report this given the situation and confusion surrounding it. Director M. Night Shyamalan is taking on an adaptation of a Nickelodeon television series titled Avatar: The Last Airbender which debuted in 2005. This is not to be confused with the James Cameron sci-fi epic film titled Avatar that is slated for 2009, as these two films have absolutely nothing in common. The Shyamalan directed film is the Nick TV series adaptation, and the James Cameron Avatar is a sci-fi epic. There is an on-going battle amongst the Avatar names as of current, which is still far from a conclusion.
Anyone else out there not really enjoying Shyamalan as of recent? I didn't think Lady in the Water was that bad, but I've heard terrible feedback from others, and that his career may be nearing an ending - although this is obvious that it isn't. Got something to say about either Avatar movie - leave a comment!
