Zoe Saldana, attending the premiere of Avatar in Hollywood, did her best to make up for the lack of actual skin we see from her in the big-budget CGI epic. Co-stars Sam Worthington, Michelle Rodriguez, Sigourney Weaver and Giovanni Ribisi also hit the red (or rather, blue) carpet, along with closing credits siren Leona Lewis and countless well-wishers like Audrina Patridge, Bill Paxton and Virginia Madsen. While it’s too soon to tell if direct James Cameron’s post-Titanic gamble will pay off, the film’s good buzz—including nine Critics’ Choice Movie Award nominations—more than suggests it might.
