Tilda Swinton + Ang From ‘The Last Airbender’ — Dead Ringers?

Tilda Swinton Ang The Last Airbender Look Alikes
W Magazine/Paramount Pictures

This photo of Tilda Swinton was making the rounds recently after Modern Korea Cinema founder/editor Pierce Conran posted it to Twitter as the first look of the actress in the upcoming ‘Snowpiercer.’ However, further investigation proved that this was actually from a W Magazine photo shoot. These things happen.

However, our initial shock did not come from the fact that we thought this was from the film, but rather we thought Swinton was starring in a live-action reboot of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender.’

We all remember the disaster created by M. Night Shyamalan, right? For those unfamiliar with the movie or the hit Nickelodeon series on which it’s based, Airbenders have the ability to manipulate wind and air for a variety of effects — Waterbenders manipulate water, Earthbenders manipulate earth, etc. — but they also look a lot like bald monks (see the photo from ‘The Last Airbender’ above). So if someone could actually do the cartoon series justice with a live-action adaptation, wouldn’t Swinton make an exceptional Airbender?
