Paramount has finally decided to release a clip from next month’s The Last Airbender and it features none other than Jackson Rathbone. He plays Sokka in the film and conveniently stars in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which opens next week. Are they trying to keep his visibility up so they can leech off some of those vampire profits? The clip is entitled “Fire Nation is Here,” and it’s pretty self-explanatory. Take a look…
This has to be the most anti-climactic clip they could have chosen. It literally gives us nothing except mediocre acting and a lot of green screen effects. The film has been under a lot of scrutiny and instead of using this clip to show how amazing it will be they highlighted some weak teaser footage that doesn’t show any action (rolls eyes).
The Last Airbender centers on Aang, the young successor to a line of Avatars who have the ability to control the four elements (earth, fire, water, air). In the past there was peace between the four nations that represented each element, but it changed when the Avatars disappeared and the Fire Nation attacked, forcing a war on the other three nations. Now it’s up to 12 year old Aang to defeat their army and bring balance and peace back to all four nations.
The Last Airbender will hit theaters on July 1, 2010 in 2D and 3D.
What do you think of the first clip from the film?
