Our First 100 Second Glimpse in 43 Days

May 12, 2009

Our favorite twitter loving producer just finished spending time with James Newton Howard and an ‘incredibly talented orchestra’ as they scored the teaser trailer for The Last Airbender, due June 24th attached to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The teaser’s official running time is reported to be 100 seconds in length.


James Newton Howard scores Airbender

Upcoming Films Scores  is reporting that James Newton Howard will be scoring The Last Airbender!


The Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency has added The Last Airbender to James Newton Howard’s filmography. This is M. Night Shyamalan’s new film, which is expected to premiere in the summer of 2010. It is the seventh feature film collaboration between Howard and Shyamalan, previous projects include The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable and this year’s The Happening. The epic fantasy adventure follows the adventures of the successor to a long line of Avatars who must put aside his irresponsible ways and stop the Fire Nation from enslaving the Water, Earth and Air nations. Paramount will distribute. James Newton Howard has several films coming up shortly: Defiance (already nominated for a Golden Globe), Love Ranch, Confessions of a Shopaholic and Duplicity.


Hopefully Howard will be using some of The Track Team’s themes in this score. Watching Avatar without The Track Team’s music would be like watching Star Wars without John Williams’ iconic themes (hint: it doesn’t work, ex: The Clone Wars film).
