First look at the Avatar movie

About a month ago, Producer Frank Marshall released a statement saying that the cast for the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender movie was final and no amount of bitching on the intarwebz was going to change their minds, so I planned to just boycott the whole thing, or torrent it so Paramount won’t get any of my money.

First images of the film were just released by USA Today a few hours ago, and now I have mixed feelings about it. The avatard in me wants to watch it just because it’s Avatar. But the casting still  really, really ticks me off.

Nothing against Dev Patel, I think he’s great, but I still think he’d be better off as Sokka. Noah Ringer doesn’t look that bad. I don’t get that smudge on his forehead though. Are they nixing the tatoos, or CGI-ing them post-prod? This whole thing’s just really weird. The trailer will be out in June, so I’m crossing my fingers.

Dear World. Pls to stop raeping my fandomz. kthxbai!♥ Gab


<edit> The intarwebz just coughed up this photo. (Thanks, Julie!)


Patel’s looking hot. The angst suits him hahaha. This movie might not suck as hard as I thought. </edit>

  1. i don’t like that stupid kid there! but slumdog boy is ok. just at least shave his head or something.

  2. yeah, he’ll probably do ok… still, him as sokka would be pretty interesting… could he do all that exaggerated slapstick? XD *sigh* nevertheless i’m boycotting this movie XP

    1. I think he could. I’ve seen pictures of him when he was still dong “Skins” being all dorky and shit. Haha, I’m still undecided if I should boycott, or watch it just for the love of Dev Patel. XD

  3. I don’t care about the race thing anymore, I’m over it. I just wanna see how their gonna do the graphics for this, I hope its as Epic as the show. Aang looks alright, I saw the preview and he looked cool, just hope the kid can act and make me laugh. As for Sokka we’ll just have to see Jackson’s version in the preview. I wonder when his preview will come. XD

    1. Yeah. The drama around it’s getting really old. I have faith in Dev Patel. And judging from the teaser trailer, their Aang doesn’t look too shabby. I just hope the other actors pull it off.
