Avatar (2009)

scene 1

The film follows Dr. Grace Augustine (Sigourney Weaver) as she calls for her cigarette—inside an atmosphere-controlled base facility on a distant moon—and smokes it for five minutes of screen time through multiple camera set-ups, takes, cuts and changes of location. Weaver later said that she tried to persuade director/writer James Cameron to let her character use anything else besides a cigarette in the extended scene, such as an inhaler.
