In the latest sign of California's declining movie market share, director James Cameron announced he will shoot the three sequels to his Oscar-winning blockbuster "Avatar" in New Zealand. Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment will do the performance-capture work on the movie in Los Angeles at MBS Media Campus (formerly known as Manhattan Beach Studios).  However, the live-action portion of the production will film in New Zealand, following a similar pattern to the original 2009 film, Cameron and his partner, Jon Landau, announced Monday.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the first of the two movies, hits theaters on Dec. 14 of this year, followed by "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" on Dec. 13, 2013.
