14 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The writing process for James Cameron‘s “Avatar” sequels is so “involved” that he has had to push the release date for the first back to late 2017.

The Associated Press reports the Academy Award winner behind “Titanic” and “The Terminator” dropped the bad news for fans hoping to see the first of three new movies in 2016 while promoting the local film industry in Wellington, New Zealand with “Hobbit” director Peter Jackson. Cameron filmed the 2009 blockbuster there, and has returned to produce the three sequels, which will be released over three consecutive years.

Then I noticed it watching That Day We Sang, the similarly excellent television play that was on over Christmas, written and directed by Victoria Wood, starring Imelda Staunton and Michael Ball about a poignant adult relationship in the late 1960s between two people who had sung together 40 years previously in a children’s choir.

These period dramas showed people in pubs, restaurants, cafes and teashops. All the details and the superb production design were wonderfully clear. So where was the blue haze, the fug, the horrible brimming ashtrays and the nasty fag smoke? A lot »
