The number of North Americans who went to the cinema in 2010 was around 5 percent down on the 2009 total, figures show. Box office analysts forecast 1.35 billion tickets will be sold by the end of the year, down on 1.42 billion sold in 2009. It is the biggest year-on-year drop since 2005, making 2010 the second lowest attended year of the decade. Yet, box,office revenues remained about the same at 10.7 billion dollars due to increased ticket prices. Animated movie Toy Story 3 was the highest grossing film of the year at the U.S. box office, earning nearly 450 million dollars. The Pixar sequel, like the second highest grossing title Alice in Wonderland, was one of several hit movies released in 3D. It is thought the attendance figures in the U.S. and Canada will rise next year when sequels to hit comedies The Hangover and Pirates of the Caribbean are released.
