Trailer makes M. Night Shyamalan awesome

After The Sixth Sense and Signs, M. Night Shyamalan was a name associated with the laughter of critics and moviegoers alike. After The Happening, it looked like absolutely NO ONE was able to take Shyamalan seriously, but lo and behold: The Last Airbender.

Overseeing release in July 2, 2010, Shyamalan's adaptation of the famous Nickelodeon cartoon looks quite stunning. ILM just never fails to provide some insane visuals. Still, the action looks tight and the world looks fully realized, so perhaps adaptations is Shyamalan's forte after all. He does know how to inject some suspense into a scene, so he'll likely use that to his advantage, but as of now, the movie is actually looking quite awesome.

That's quite a stretch for me to say because I was extremely skeptical of the project, especially after the photo that had Jamal, I mean, Dev Patel on it.

And music by James Newton Howard, holy crap. I gotta get a listen of that soundtrack.
