The Last Airbender Blu-ray Announced

Posted September 14, 2010 09:22 AM by Juan Calonge

ParamountParamount Home Entertainment has announced the action/adventure movie The Last Airbender, directed by M. Night Shyamalan, for Blu-ray release on November 16, in two editions: a two-disc BD/DVD Digital Copy combo pack and a single-disc Blu-ray. It will feature "over two hours of in-depth, behind-the-scenes special features" (albeit most of them on the combo only). Although this movie was shown theatrically in 3D (converted in post-production from native 2D), no 3D Blu-ray edition has been announced as of yet.

Special features include:
  • Avatar Annotations (Picture-in-picture on select scenes) Insights with cast and crew
  • Discovering The Last Airbender (nine-part documentary in HD)
    • Inspirations Co-creators of the show and M. Night Shyamalan give insight into the inner journey the characters take
    • Spirituality Explore the deeper spirituality that colors The Last Airbender
    • Heroes Aang, Katara and Sokka journey together to save the world; behind-the-scenes piece provides a closer look at these characters and the actors
    • Greenland With sub-zero shoots on glaciers and frozen rivers, travel with the filmmakers to Greenland to meet the locals and experience the magnificent landscapes captured for the powerful opening of the film
    • World The sets, props, costumes and make-up that helped bring to life four unique nations in the film, each with a distinct look and style
    • Action With the film's "bending" rooted in Martial Arts, uncover Shyamalan's process with Noah Ringer to create complex, heart-pounding action sequences
    • Effects Closer look at the jaw-dropping cinematography and special effects that were created to blend seamlessly with ILM's computer generated imagery
    • Music Longtime creative collaboration between M. Night Shyamalan and composer James Newton Howard is celebrated in the film's sweeping score
    • Finale The journey culminates in one breathtaking moment on the ice wall
  • Siege of the North: Get transported to the frozen realm of the Northern Water Tribe and the largest indoor film set ever built on the U.S. east coast (in HD)
  • Origins of the Avatar: Birth of the mythology from the original co-creators of the animated show, Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. Concept art from the popular series provides further perspective into how the story would eventually reincarnate into an epic feature film (in HD; also available on single-disc BD)
  • Katara for a Day: Spend a day on the set with Nicola Peltz (in HD) Deleted scenes (in HD; also available on single-disc BD)
  • Outtakes (in HD; also available on single-disc BD)

I wanted to see this in regular 2D but my town had like one theater showing it. All the rest was the crappy 3D or portuguese dubbed (don't know which one is worse). Can't wait for the BD even though most people thought the movie sucks. I still have some faith in Shyamalan. I think the good things in his movies always outweight the bad.

Jumpman, it really depends. If you're a fan of the series then you'll hate it. Being a fan, I felt like the movie was a blatant slap in the face to the original creators. Among many changes for the worse, M. Night even altered the character names. I can't imagine what made him think that was a good idea. That's like saying, "Okay, we're going to make a movie based on the Harry Potter books but we're going to call it Horry Porter."

Can't wait! The Animated series is better without a doubt (and i can't wait to get that on blu-ray) but the film is very very good too, more serious than the cartoon which had some slapstick humor in it!

Jackson Rathbone is an acquaintance of mine. I last talked to him a couple of weeks before the premiere. He was nervous because he hadn't seen any of the film yet and a lot of it was effects shots.

I frankly think acting is just how he pays the bills. His real passion is his band 100 Monkeys, which is pretty good.

I too was a fan of the cartoon series. The movie could have been a lot better but still was okay. Definitely more for the kids. My main complaint was with the fight choreography. This was where the movie could have really wowed instead it was ho hum. The acting was decent for waht it is, a kids movie (with all the complaining you'd think people were expecting Dark Knight intensity).

If the sequels do get green lighted I hope they beef up the combat to really show off the martial art styles each nation uses. I'll probably pick up the single disc edition.

The movie certainly could have been better, but I didn't think it was nearly as bad as a lot of people are saying. Granted, I have never watched the TV show, so my opinion is solely from a movie-making standpoint. If the the price is decent, I'll probably pick this one up.

Watching this movie in a theater packed with Avatar fans was one of the most uncomfortable viewing experiences of my life. They cheered at the beginning title card. After that, it was 100 minutes of mounting hostility. The final cut to black and Shyamalan's credit was met with an eruption of boos.

I was right there with them.

The inevitable Rifftrax is probably going to make me want to own this movie.

Can anyone explain to me what happened to M. Night Shyamalan since The Sixth Sense, Signs, and Unbreakable? It's so odd that he made good movies at first, and then forgot how to apparently. You would think he would have learned something from the reviews of The Happening...

Looks like they're trying to make Some $$$$ with the price(s) alone of these 2 sets - Regular BD is listed right now at $28.99, the 2-Disc DVD/BD Combo pack at $31.99 ??!! Lmao. I'll Netflix it since I didn't see it but if they want to make ANY money here, those prices have to come down a Lot.

In the minority here but I still love M Night and I kinda, sorta loved this movie. Never seen an episode of the show but I took it for what it was; a bad children's film. I honestly expected nothing more of it and that's what I got so I boogied with it. I'll actually be buying this; I collect all of M. Night's work (even Stuart Little). And I actually found The Village, Lady in the Water and the Happening to be misunderstood genius. You have to remember that there's more than what meets the eye in his films. I don't expect everyone to love it as most people just want something quick and easy to digest. This film isn't one of his deep and spiritual films (like the ones previous) but it was still fun.

I agree. I've got everything of his, exluding Stuart Little. You have to look a little deeper into The Happening to fully appreciate it. I loved this one. I can understand not liking it, but I have a hard time believing it's one of the worst films out there.

I agree Lady in the Water is the worst I know of, it was well shot, and the art direction was beautiful, but it was awful.
As for this film, which I have yet to see (I was convinced not to by many people), I don't think you can say that you could ignore bad things about it because it's a kid movie. There have been some terrific 'kid' movies like Return to Oz, Neverending story, Coraline, any Pixar Movie, etc that are deep complex films that deal with some real issues and do so very well and are almost borderline adult movies. The show itself is quite sophisticated for a kid show. In fact all the best stuff I saw when I was growing up in the 90s was entertainment aimed at kids but with very adult themes (like the ones I mentioned and Batman the animated series) I think when a movie underestimates a younger audience you get a worse movie.
