M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender gets a full trailer.

As I mentioned last week, I know very little about the source material.  Unfortunately, this full-length trailer doesn't seem to illuminate much.  Sure the visuals are gorgeous, there is a true sense of scope, and there are a few nice action beats, but I'm not entirely sure what I'm watching and that's not a good thing.  After a pretty terrific Super Bowl spot, this full-length peak is more than a little underwhelming.  And, because it needs to be said, if you're currently dealing with a controversy involving white actors being used to play Asian characters in an Asian story, maybe it's not a great idea to highlight a white guy and a white, blond girl as your primary romantic subplot.  Just a thought...
