Avatar Legend of Korra’s The Aftermath Gets Top Spot for The Week

Nickelodeon’s latest addition to the Avatar franchise is a bonafide hit, as proven by the numbers it managed to pull last Saturday, May 19, during the showing of the episode titled “The Aftermath”, which deals with the increased tension brought about by an ally that Korra suspects to be working for the Equalists.

It’s no secret that M.Night Shyamalan’s poorly received take on Avatar: The Last Airbender has killed all the buzz it originally managed to drum up for the franchise, and the only people still interested in a new addition to the franchise are the loyal fans who got started on the series through the books and the cartoon – the same people who would have followed the series even without the Hollywood buzz, and the exact same people who felt betrayed by the sub par quality of the live action adaptation.

Seventy years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender, Korra has stepped in where Aang left off, filling in as the new Avatar. She’s a hot-headed and rebellious young woman from the Southern Water Tribe, ready to take on the world. The series follows Korra as she faces an anti-bender revolt while mastering the art of Airbending from Aang and Katara’s son, Tenzin. For those worried about a different adventure, fear not! Nickelodeon’s spin-off series will have the same driving force behind the toon as the original did, namely Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. Seems a little like Batman Beyond picking up after Batman: The Animated Series, and we can’t wait!

With the success of the Avatar animated series, as well as M. Night Shyamalan’s motion picture The Last Airbender, it’s no wonder Nickelodeon wants to keep the train running for the American born anime series! Thankfully, we’ve finally got word of the next chapter in the franchise: The Legend of Korra. The latest Avatar, Korra is the successor to Aang. She is a teenage girl born to the Southern Water Tribe who has already mastered Waterbending, Earthbending, and Firebending. She needs only to learn Aang’s art of Airbending to evolve into a fully realized Avatar, learning from Tenzin, the son of Aang and Katara. The toon, from the same creators, Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, is set to debut on Nick in 2011. Sounds like a fun new take on the series, but will it surpass the original?

Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 3 on weekend 3 in 3D for hundred million 3 on July 3

Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 3 on weekend 3 in 3D for hundred million 3 on July 3

3! 3! 3!!! With $250 million already in the bank, Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 3 hopes to reach the magical plateau of $300 million this holiday weekend, with the help of some eager movie goers. But being able to reach, and “eclipse” that mark will be no easy task, especially against The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the latest in the Twilight franchise hitting theaters this weekend, as well – not to mention Nickelodeon’s new The Last Airbender film, following the story of Aang the Avatar. Toy Story 3 has already topped the first two in the franchise; 1995’s Toy Story pulled in $191 million and the sequel, 1999’s Toy Story 2, had $245 million. Together, the first two films pulled in another $30 at the box office during last year’s Toy Story / Toy Story 2 double feature in 3D. So how high will the numbers eventually climb? No one knows for sure — but I know I’ll be seeing it at least one more time in theaters!
