Looking Ahead

November 24, 2009

Those sparkling vampires, and buff werewolves of the Twilight saga may be the biggest hurdle The Last Airbender will have to overcome to reach box office success next year. New Moon, the second of the Twilight films, opened this past weekend grossing an astonishing $142 million, smashing the highest grossing Midnight opening and single day records in the process. The next film in the saga, Eclipse, opens next year on June 30, a mere two days before The Last Airbender hits theaters. What the wild success of New Moon spells for The Last Airbender at this point is uncertain, but it wouldn’t surprise us if Airbender’s release date is pushed up or back at least a week in light of the very real competition Eclipse will surely bring to the box office.
