The folks at Coventry Telegraph just published an lengthy guide to M.Night Shyamlan’s THE LAST AIRBENDER – adapted from the Nickelodeon animated series – four nations represent the elements of air, water, earth and fire.
The Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others and a century passes with no end in sight to the destruction.
Then a boy called Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. He joins forces with a waterbender called Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her brother Sokka (Jackson Rathbone) to restore balance to their wartorn world.
We have been sent a rather handy guide to the world presented in the film and, whether you’ve seen the movie or not, it’s interesting and informative enough to share with you here… read more about the world of The Last Airbender
The Last Airbender Interviews – M. Night Shyamalan, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone and Dev Patel talk about bringing the cartoon to the big screen with Reelz Channel.
While Eclipse, starring the popular combo Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart-Taylor Lautner, has been performing a little below expectations, The Last Airbender, has been performing way above expectations. Shyamalan’s actioner went up an estimated 34.7% on Monday (vs. Eclipse‘s 18.4% decrease).
One more drastic Eclipse attendance drop The Last Airbender can reach the top position at the North American box office. To date, The Last Airbender has collected $70.5m about $20 million more than many had predicted. And in order for Paramount to recover its $150m production costs alone not including the $130m spent on marketing, The Last Airbender would have to earn approximately $270-$300m domestically, as studios only get around 50-55% of a movie’s box-office gross.
According to current box office numbers The Last Airbender doesn’t seem at all likely will get that far, but that’s where the overseas market should come to the rescue.
The Last Airbender will open internationally just within few weeks.
You may not know her name, but 15-year-old actress Nicola Peltz – who stars in the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan fantasy The Last Airbender in the role of Katara – could be changing that very soon. Here’s why, according to People.com:
• M. Night gives her a rave review.
“I told the studio I didn’t want to make this movie without her,” Shyamalan tells PEOPLE. “I said that only once before in my career, and that was when I met Haley [Joel Osment] in the Sixth Sense auditions.” They’re buds off-camera, too: He came to Peltz’s 15th birthday party with his daughters.
Wow, I can’t wait to see this split up into four separate images of bending!

Thursday was wrap day for The Last Airbender, the M. Night Shyamalan action flick that spent the last three months in Philadelphia. Herewith, high points of Philly, from six actors: Young Noah Ringer, who stars as Aang, dug the food at Pietro’s Coal Oven Pizza, took in the Liberty Bell and Franklin Institute, and enjoyed a Ride the Ducks tour.
Since the announcement of the primary cast of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender this morning, there has been a lot of mixed reaction. Not only are people saying negative things about Mr. Shyamalan, but they’re also saying that the creators of Avatar wouldn’t have chosen these particular characters. They’re also commenting about the color of the characters’ skin as compared to the cartoon.
It looks as if director M. Night Shyamalan has found his cast for The Last Airbender. The would-be cast is mostly filled with unknowns and minor stars, all of which Shyamalan aims to make household names when The Last Airbender opens in July of 2010.
“After an open casting call in Texas, Shyamalan discovered karate star Noah Ringer and offered him the part of Airbender’s 12-year old hero, Aang, an Avatar with superpowers who must stop the Fire Nation from destroying the world. Twilight’s Jackson Rathbone has been asked to play Aang’s pal Sokka, while Nicola Peltz (Deck the Halls) will star as his sister Katara. Genial singer Jesse McCartney, meanwhile, is negotiating to play against type in the role of the Fire Nation’s evil prince Zuko.”
