International Airbender Trailer Online
Aang and co with Japanese narration

The Last Airbender is carrying a lot of weight on its fantastical shoulders. It has to single-handedly restore M. Night Shyamalan’s reputation after The Happening, satisfy fans of the cartoon and offer up something different from all the other effects-crammed adventures that have come before it bearing mystical messages about chosen child warriors. To keep the momentum moving, the international trailer has now been released.

Okay, so it’s technically not a studio release for Western audiences, since this is aimed at the Japanese market (hence the narration overdubbing and splashes of Japanese characters on the map of the various tribes in the film that look like someone spilt ink on it), but it’s of interest since it features some new footage.

We’re not sure it’s likely to win over anyone who has already written the movie off, but it does look like it could be fun.

For those who have seemingly missed the plot explanations before, here you go: four elemental nations, Air, Water, Earth and Fire are thrown into chaos when the Fire people decide to invade the rest. After a century of unflinching combat, there comes a possible hope in Aang (Noah Ringer) an Avatar with the power to manipulate the air and more. Can he and his allies restore balance to the world? Or will the Fire Nation wreak havoc on everyone?

You get three guesses once you’ve gone to take a gander at the trailer. The film, freshly converted into 3D, will land in our cinemas on August 13.

Hmm my Japenese voiceover is a tad rusty, but I am guessing the guy is saying "for the love of all that is holy make you sure watch this in 2D and not the crappy we-did-this-after-we-made-the-film-3D. Arigato." Will definitely be given this a watch. In 2D. More

Looks terrific, can't wait. Should help get over my WC blues and inevitable penalty shootout defeat. More

Freshly converted to 3D which means, like the Clash of the Titans CRAPFEST, the 3D will be intrusive and irritating beyond belief. Hopefully my local will show in in 2D. More

"splashes of Japanese characters on the map"
In fact pretty much the only asian characters in the whole thing! More
