Avatar was finally released in Italy on the 15th of January (the last country in the world, after Georgia) where it made $3 million in a single day, a new record after the previous record set by Ice Age 3 (L'Era Glaciale 3). Avatar is available in 925 locations throughout, the country, 416 of which have 3D.
In other news, Sam Worthington has signed up for the sequel. The next film won't take as long as the first one did, but by the time it comes out we should have some idea of what the Alpha Centauri system is actually like. If a gas giant is discovered around Alpha Centauri A it'll be interesting to see whether people start calling it Polyphemus.
