The REAL Avatar arrives

Lynda and I have been immersing ourselves in Avatar: The Last Airbender recently. We've plowed through the Netflix discs over the last few months (we only get one at a time, please remember) and are nearing the final twelve or so half-hour episodes.

And tonight during the Super Bowl, there will be a movie teaser trailer for the movie, which comes out this summer. It looks pretty good. (I thought I was posting the new Super Bowl ad above, but instead it showed the original teaser trailer from a few months ago. But there is a link on the embedded video that will take you to the movie Web site where you can see the new spot . . . just in case you are heating up your nachos when it comes on the TV later tonight.)

The big caveat, however, is that the director is M. Night Shamalayan. If you've spoken to me or read this blog over the years, you know that I've only truly enjoyed his first film The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. I tolerated Signs, but don't hate it. I didn't go see Lady in the Water or The Happening.

So, I'm a bit concerned that M. is going to ruin a very good story. But time will tell.
