As “Avatar” officially became a worldwide cinema sensation last Friday night, the Hero Complex was honored to be hosting a special Hollywood screening and stage interview with the makers and stars of the film. We showed you some video yesterday of James Cameron explaining the eye-opening themes of the film and now here’s part two, which includes star Sam Worthington talking about his well-worn work boots and his unlikely path to Hollywood fame.

Check back tomorrow for more video and our ongoing coverage of “Avatar,” the movie event of 2009.
