    I didn't realize this until right now. Apparently the special effects in Avatar were so over-the-top intense that Weta could not finish them all on their own in time for the release. Industrial Light & Magic had to be brought on board and the two special effects studio mammoths tag teamed the rest of the Avatar shots.

    They had to collaborate on how they made certain things look so that the other studio would make their work look the same way, so the film didn't appear to be made by two different special effects companies on opposite sides of the world.

    Here's a very interesting read about this:
