The action adventure flick moves forward a day for July 1 release, while release date for the Screen Gems' horror sci-fi is once again pushed back to May 13, 2011.
Paramount Pictures has decided to distribute "The Last Airbender" sooner than it was planned. Previously scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on July 2, the action sci-fi will now arrive a day earlier on July 1.
While the new release date for "Last Airbender" is a good news, a bad news comes from "Priest". After pushed back from August 13 of this year to January 14, 2011, the U.S. release for the film is once again delayed. The horror movie now occupies May 13, 2011 slot so that it could get 3-D treatment, which eventually takes longer time than initially thought.
"The Last Airbender" is a live-action film version of Nickelodeon's animated series of the same name. The film follows Aang and is set in a world where human civilization is divided into four nations: Water, Earth, Air and Fire. Teaming up with Waterbender named Katara and her brother Sokka, Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world.
As for "Priest", the story is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The movie revolves around Paul Bettany's Priest, a legendary warrior who disobeys church law by teaming with a young sheriff and a priestess to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.
