Not just bits and not a CGI Avatar-fest, the whole living, breathing thing! There are lots of big names in the cast and the prospect of seeing Ben Kingsley and Christopher Lee doing their thing in 3D has certainly got my attention.

All is not going entirely to plan however and they’re already three days behind schedule. If this is a symptom of the difficulties of live-action filming in 3D and they don’t find a way to make up for lost time then delays would be inevitable, though I hope they do catch up as I really want to see the finished product.

Filming on such a scale will always entail schedules stretching, let’s just hope this isn’t a trend which continues -we’re as keen as anyone to see how this one turns out.
