In this photo taken Oct. 31, 2012, Weta Digital staff celebrate Halloween in the company's Wellington studios in New Zealand. Previously never celebrated, Halloween now has a place in the region due to the large influence of Americans who come down under seeking work in the studios film making enterprises. Weta Digital is the centerpiece of a filmmaking empire that Peter Jackson and close collaborators have built in his New Zealand hometown, realizing his dream of bringing a slice of Hollywood to Wellington. It’s a one-stop shop for making major movies - not only his own, but other blockbusters like “Avatar” and “The Avengers” and hoped-for blockbusters like next year’s “Man of Steel.” (AP Photo/Nick Perry)
