Avatar’ has already piled up $285 million in worldwide grosses and, of course, in our ‘what’s next?’ culture that means people are already peppering writer-director James Cameron with questions about a sequel. On the film’s opening night, the Hero Complex and The Envelope hosted a screening of the film and I got a chance to interview Cameron, producer Jon Landau and stars Sigourney Weaver and Sam Worthington on stage and, of course, I asked about the follow-up possibilities for the film. I made a point to mention that Pandora wasn’t the only moon shown orbiting the distant Polyphemus and the filmmaker acknowledged that his story ideas for the ‘Avatar’ universe aren’t boxed in by Pandora.

Check back tomorrow for the fourth and final piece of video from our opening-night event. If you missed the earlier posts, you can go back and hear Cameron talking about the eye-opening theme of the film in the first video snippet and then Worthington talking about his days living in a car in the second installment.
