Next to INCEPTION, I’d say THE LAST AIRBENDER is the movie I’m looking forward to the most this summer. I haven’t had a chance to watch the Nick Toon, but fans have spoken so effusively about its merits, I definitely need to witness it sometime. Either way, I’ve been very impressed by the trailers and I’m looking forward to seeing a kid kicking ass on the big screen. As I’ve said, it’s been far too long since THREE NINJAS.
If your mind was blown by the latest trailer, then I’m sure you’re going to get a kick out of these slick character posters that Countingdown’s gotten their hands on just recently (by way of IGN). You’ve got Noah Ringer as Aang, of course, and Dev Patel as Prince Zuko. Having studied graphic design a bit, myself, I have to say that these are really well done. They’re minimalistic without being bland, there’s a great sense of mood and power in the color schemes and the photo compositing integrates very well graphically. Having seen one too many shoddily-done Photoshop collages that’ve been passed off as official posters, I think it’s worth noting that these actually look like good illustrations.
Anyway, what do you lunatics in the Anime Vice community, fans and haters alike, think of these?
