This past June movie fans were exposed to the upcoming creation from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. Surprisingly enough The Last Airbender did not come across as a failure like his last three projects have conditioned us to believe.

The movie is written and directed by Shyamalan. Thankfully, the concept for the film is not an original idea from him, which comes as a change from the 30-year-old director's norm. With Shyamalan not imagining his own ending, movie goers can be hopeful that the conclusion to this movie won't induce strong feelings of violence against the creator of such atrocities as Lady in the Water and The Happening.

Slashfilm has just reported a TV spot during the Superbowl (that doesn't come cheap) for the new trailer you can see below. Also reported are mixed reviews for the film from test screenings earlier this week. Many people either love Shyamalan or hate him (I generally don't like him) and this early report from the test screenings looks to prove this fact true. It is too early to tell from such a small sample however.

The trailer is loaded full of action which is not a typical Shyamalan movie trait; but that doesn't make it something he can't execute well. From what you can see, The Last Airbender looks astounding. I am still holding out for this movie being awesome. The trailer below should give you the same feeling.
