        Everyone is freaking out over this movie but I will laugh when it makes less than 100 million dollars. There is too much competition for this movie.

          David Slade is one awesome director(30 Days of Night), ill see this movie for him and ofcrz Kristen Stewart,...

            So what this really means is, more places you can't go to see a good film

              but who will win the box office eclipse or the last airbender?


              • the-fallen • 5 years ago

                So airbender was suppose to come out earlier and they decided to change it into 3D like thats going help. Horrible release date. Nice job m.Night HAHA!!


                • phxtonymex • 5 years ago

                  Airbender may be better than eclipse. However, after "the happening" Im questioning if Shamalan ever directed signs, and the sixth sense. Airbender has to have a 5 star rating and A+ reviews from both critics and wannabes for me to even think about watching it on VHS.

                  If you like puking go see eclipse.

                      Last Airbender is going to flop so bad. This movie is going to destroy it this weekend.

                        please stop hating Hiplop and AVATARSEQUAL

                          ok after this, 2 more nightmares and i hope this sh*t saga is over


                          • hiplop • 5 years ago

                            AVATARSEQUAL is correct

                            airbender deserveres it so much more


                            • insertusernamehere • 5 years ago

                              Not surprising. My Facebook wall is littered with "Eclipse at midnight!!" statuses lol

                                Don't care. Airbender will be the superior film, whether it wins the box office or not.
