The cigarette that Sigourney Weaver's character is smoking in Avatar is CGI.

Half the effects in most films are CGI and we don't notice because it's on the small scale. 

But something as minuscule as a fag? Yeah, that's a bit odd. But I found it quite interesting.

Yes.  The scene in Blood Diamond where Jennifer Connelly cried was CG.  So yeah, a cigarette can't be that hard.

"Fag" is British slang for "cigarette".
I am aware, fag.

Kill Bill was Quentin Tarantino's first film to have fewer than 100 uses of "****". It's used 17 times.

Two separate drafts of Cabin Fever 2 were written in 2004. One draft was written by the first film's writer, producer, and director, Eli Roth. The other draft was written by Adam Green, the creator of the Hatchet trilogy and the writer and director of Frozen and Digging Up the Marrow. However, due to internal politics at Lionsgate, both drafts were set aside to bring in an entirely new vision.

At the first screening of Hostel at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival, two ambulances were called due to people having such extreme reactions to the film. A man left the theater during the torture of Derek Richardson's character Josh, fainted, and tumbled down the escalator, and a woman asked for paramedics, believing she was having a heart attack during the torture of Jay Hernandez's character Paxton. Both patrons were okay, and local media thought it was a publicity stunt by the film's writer, producer, and director Eli Roth. However, Roth claims to know nothing of the incidents, as he was in the theater watching the film, and only found out after when he was told by the festival staff of the chaos that transpired.
