After all the months of hype and endless speculation about whether James Cameron’s super-sized sci-fi epic would be the next Titanic-sized hit or Ishtar-scented dud, Avatar has finally had its day in cinematic court. The verdict: $232 million and counting. Okay, so you’ve bought the ticket, seen the movie (maybe more than once), and you have questions. Burning, nagging questions. Like, for example, how much did the thing actually cost to make? Is it the most expensive movie ever after adjusting for inflation? Who will see all the money it rakes in? What does the film’s success mean for 3-D technology? Will every movie be in 3-D now? Is Sam Worthington now an A-list star? Will there be a sequel? Does it really have a shot at a Best Picture Oscar? Let’s hear what you got, PopWatchers.
