M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender live-action film is coming to Blu-ray Disc and DVD on November 16.
The critically panned first film of a planned trilogy that stars Noah Ringer (Cowboys & Aliens), Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), Jackson Rathbone (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1) and Nicola Peltz (Deck The Halls) will be presented on Blu-ray in 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
