I've noticed a recurring theme of pro-smoking propaganda in the posters for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender. Paramount has released it's final promotional poster for the film on the right and the truth is out there. The hero is obviously a chain-smoker who constantly has trails of smoke following him. Not only that, he's twelve years old. Shocking. Meanwhile, his hated enemy is the only one who has a light.
This film is looking more and more incredible with each trailer and poster. The pattern of symbols that make up the arrow on Aang's head is particularly stunning.
Here's the official synopsis:
Water. Earth. Fire. Air. In the old days, there was peace between the four nations of the world. The Avatar — Master of all four elements — kept peace between the the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. Only the Avatar has the ability to Bend (manipulate) all four elements, but one day, he Vanished. Then the Fire Nation attacked, forcing a war on the other three nations for one hundred years. Now, for the good of the world, it’s up to 12-year-old Aang (Noah Ringer), the new Avatar, to return peace and balance by putting an end to the war and mastering all four elements. Aang must accept his destiny by stopping the Fire Nation’s war and defeating the Fire Lord for good.The movie comes out July 2, 2010. You can gander at more posters and screenshots at IGN.
Is it working? Do you feel like lighting up after looking at The Last Airbender posters?
