Four Nations, One Destiny. Paramount is on to their final marketing push for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender even though it doesn't hit theaters until early July. They released at least one new photo (seen above) of Dev Patel as the Prince of the Fire Nation - Zuko. Two more new "final" posters have been released (one via Empire, other via SlashFilm) to compliment those two character posters from earlier in the week. And for those interested, there's a really cool behind-the-scenes featurette found on Embassy Suites' Last Airbender website that talks about shooting on location in Iceland. And I'm still so excited to see this!
The Last Airbender is directed by M. Night Shyamalan, of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village, Lady in the Water and The Happening previously. The screenplay was also written by M. Night Shyamalan while the story was co-written by Shyamalan and creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino. This is based on the popular Nickelodeon cartoon series Avatar: The Last Airbender that originally aired in 2005. Paramount is bringing The Last Airbender to theaters everywhere starting on July 2nd this summer.
