Sci Fi Wire has  an inside update on Cameron's and Foxes opinion on an Avatar sequel .

We've all been wondering what James Cameron has in store for a sequel to the biggest movie of all time, Avatar, which would explore the oceans of Pandora, and now he's saying that he's already got the tools he needs to create an undersea version of the fantastical planet.

A second Avatar movie is still speculative, and 20th Century Fox has not yet made deals with Cameron or the actors for a sequel. But Fox Film Entertainment co-chairman and chief executive officer Tom Rothman said that he is confident that everything will work out.

"The truth is that just like I didn't worry about the deal for the movie, I don't worry about the deal for the sequel," Rothman said in a separate interview. "When Jim is ready to do it, we at Fox will be ready to do it with him."

Also in the blue world of Pandora is that Avatar has broken the 1st day Blu Ray sales surpassing the Dark Knight according to the Hollywood Reporter .

Recent market momentum for Blu-ray enthusiasm was apparent, as Blu-ray sales of "Avatar" -- at 1.5 million copies -- well outpaced first-day sales of previous high-def top dog "The Dark Knight." An early industry estimate set overall disc sales of the title comfortably north of 4 million units, putting it well on track to become the year's top-selling release to date.

Retailers sold out of 60% of their Blu-ray inventory on average, a Fox rep said. He declined to specify unit shipments.

Mass merchants moved out roughly 50% of their "Avatar" DVDs, the spokesman added.
