The agreement with Universal is for a trilogy of 'Firefly' films. Box office receipts will determine whether they film the other two movies, which makes it even more important to get bums on seats.

Hmm. In the context of the interview, it doesn't seem possible that he was talking about three separate movies. It could likely be that Universal made a contract with the cast, crew, etc, that if Serenity succeeds, they have to be available to do at least two sequels. That's pretty common in Hollywood. It lets Universal have control of the entire big-screen Firefly franchise for a goodly long time. They can take their sweet time "deciding" whether or not Serenity performed well enough to make a sequel, without worrying that another studio is going to snatch up the actors. They are also guaranteed the original cast this way, in the case of a sequel, which is a growing thing. You might remember back in the day when sequels often didn't have all of the original cast because one or two went off and got famous. More and more studios are being smart about it, and signing the cast for more than one just in case. That's what it seems Tudyk was talking about.
