First Image From M Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender

I’ve never watched Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Sure, I hear it’s an amazing series, but I’ve never had the time to sit down and watch it back to front.  Now that I’m facing some free time over the summer, I’ll take the moment to do so.

Never the less, that hasn’t stopped the live-action movie version from kicking into high gear!  The movie version, dropping the front part of the title (Thanks, Jim Cameron!), is titled The Last Airbender and is being put together right now by love him or hate him director M. Night Shyamalan.

There was a blow-up online about how the casting of a film made up of mostly Asian cast members was being by far and large whitewashed, but now that production is finished, all we have to go on is the final product.  And the image above is our first look at the lead, Aang, thanks to USA Today.

The first trailer is scheduled to be attached to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and honestly, as a non-fan, I can’t really determine my feelings about it.  So I turn to you readers….what do you think?

Original Post: First Look: M Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender | /Film. Possibly The Best Movie Reference Site EVER.

The web is full of dozens of movie review sites.

Some good, some bad. Some with a unique perspective. Some who could easily be replaced. Hell, even I write reviews now. (Thanks, b!)

But this is possibly the best movie “review” site of all time.

I give you, a site dedicated to telling you, the viewer, when during the theatrical showing it’s appropriate to ride the yellow tide.

Worried you’re gonna miss the big plot reveal due to your blatter? Check out before you hit the theater…and be prepared.  No longer can those jumbo sodas ruin your experience during the next 3 and a half hour fantasy epic.

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies…ANIMATED

One of my favorite DC Comic stories in recent years was the Jeph Loeb/Ed McGuiness run which started the iconic Superman/Batman series.

Warner Brothers Animation, in one of the best decisions they’ve ever made, have decided to do a direct to DVD/Blu-Ray version of it. The trailer above is our first look at it.

All I can say is with a track record including the simply stunning JLA: The New Frontier and the surprisingly great Wonder Woman…I am pumped.

It’s also nice to see them growing out of the Bruce Timm look, too.

The OTHER Epic SNL Sketch From Saturday.

So Sunday morning, I posted the epic version of Celebrity Jeopardy which appeared on Saturday night’s SNL finale.

But I mentioned the end sketch as one to watch…

And it took THIS LONG to get a decent version.

In what I consider one of the best ending sketches ever for SNL…and the season…Will Farrell, the SNL Cast, and a few dozen random cameos bring you…Billy Joel’s “Goodnight Saigon”.
