With the Super Bowl just a few days away, we’re starting to get a look at the various movies that studios will be promoting on game day. Clearly, if they’re spending boatloads of cash on a TV spot, these are films that they expect big things from. First up: The Last Airbender, M. Night Shyamalan’s adaptation of the popular anime series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. Up until now we haven’t seen much from the film except for a few photos and a short teaser trailer. From what I understand, the series has a pretty large following, but I know absolutely nothing about it. Does this really have what it takes to be a massive summer blockbuster? Well, based on people’s positive reactions to this Super Bowl trailer, it certainly seems possible.
Personally I think it’s a bit too short to really get much out of it, but the effects definitely look top notch. If all goes well, it seems like this will end up being what Dragonball Evolution should have been. The movie stars mostly relative unknowns, and it hits theatres on July 2nd, 2010, going up against The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and the Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz action-comedy Knight & Day. Once again, I have to ask… does this have what it takes to be a massive summer blockbuster? Check out the Super Bowl spot after the jump and see what you think.
