Paramount Sure Has Spent Lots of Money on The Last Airbender


$280 million, to be exact. The movie has cost the studio $150 million to make, and $130 million to market, meaning it's twice as expensive as any of director M. Night Shyamalan’s other eight movies — the last two of which did not do so well at the box office! Still, Shyamalan is pretty confident it's all going to work out: He thinks of The Last Airbender as the first part of a trilogy. [LAT]
