Two New Posters for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender
With a brand new theatrical trailer and Superbowl TV spot on the way, Paramount has released two new contrasting posters at Yahoo (check them out below), for M. Night Shyamalan's forthcoming adaptation of the Nickelodeon cartoon series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Though after passing The Dark Knight as the 2nd highest domestic grossing film of all time (and closing in on Titanic with only about $47 million to go), James Cameron's sci-fi epic pretty much has a lock on the Avatar name, so it looks like "Avatar" has been dropped from its title and is now simply known as The Last Airbender. If you're a fan, you'll dig these.
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 written by M. Night Shyamalan while the story was co-written by Shyamalan and creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino. This is based off of the popular Nickelodeon cartoon series Avatar: The Last Airbender that first debuted in 2005. Paramount is bringing The Last Airbender to theaters everywhere on July 2nd, 2010 this summer.
