Could The Last Airbender actually turn out to be decent?

by  in Comic News Comment

This has little to do with comics, beyond those issues of Nickelodeon Magazine, but I’m such a fan of the Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series that I couldn’t resist posting the first official teaser for M. Night Shyamalan’s live-action adaptation.

The movie has at least three things going against it: the difficulty inherent in making the leap from animation to live action; the casting, at least initially, of white actors in the four central roles; and Shyamalan’s spotty track record.

But I admit that this 1 minute and 41-second teaser looks, well, if not promising then … not awful. I never thought I’d say that.
