only made about $30 million more than the budget domestically, which basically means it lost money because advertising costs are figured into the earnings total.

The reason I bring up domestic totals is that the studios are more concerned with the US market when it comes to casting an iconic American character than the international markets.
hmmmm... yeah, I hadn't considered that about avatar. still, if I was him (and only getting 3 mill a film), I'd be making my agent work the phones to get better offers. then again, maybe he doesn't care about money (and that IS the best he can get). what do I know, I'm just a biology geek in flyover country.
