There’s still a few months before M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender is due to hit theaters, but they’ve already treated us to three (3) trailers. And as everyone knows, the number of trailers is inversely proportional to the quality of the movie (please note the Robert Downey, Jr. corollary, which demonstrates the exact opposite).
What’s not completely obvious from the trailer, however, is that The Last Airbender is a kid’s flick. No. Really. From what we’ve heard (from a random conversation with someone who worked on the film) is that it’s very, very kid friendly. And not much else.
I do think it’s cool, though, that one of the characters is a water bender. You know, in case the trajectory of your glass was a little off, he could ensure that your beverage arrived in your mouth with a minimal amount of spillage. Maybe he’s got a superhero friend that can turn into a bucket. Then, we’re getting somewhere!
It’s been a long day. Leave me alone.
