“Toy Story 3” leads 2010 box office, which is down from 2009

By Sean O’Connell As the year draws to a close, we’ve begun to compartmentalize 2010’s successes and failures on various levels.

Box office is one chart we use on a week-to-week basis to determine a film’s success (though, not necessarily, its quality). And reports are arriving today that suggest that the year’s domestic box office revenues will be down from the previous year, though not by much. reported that total ticket sales will reach $10.556 billion, down slightly from the $10.6 billion tallied in 2009. Though it marks a slight decrease, this is “only the second time that the annual box office has crossed the $10 billion mark,” according to the report.

Figures weren’t all encouraging, however. Total attendance dropped 5.36 percent from 2009, signifying “the biggest percentage drop year over year since 2005” and earning the unfortunate distinction of being “the second-lowest attended year of the decade.”

“I started figuring the wheels might come off this thing when the summer season was faltering, and by the end of the summer it was the lowest-attended summer in over a decade,” said analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “Then I thought, maybe we can make it up in the holiday season, with ‘Tron,’ ‘Harry Potter,’ ‘Tangled’ and some other big movies on the way, but I didn’t know if there would be enough juice in the box office to make up for the loss of the summer, and it just didn’t happen.”

According to Box Office Mojo, the top 10 earners for 2010 are:
1. Toy Story 3 – $415M
2. Alice in Wonderland – $334.1M
3. Iron Man 2 – $312.1M
4. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – $300.5M
5. Inception – $292.5M
6. Harry Potter – $274.3M
7. Despicable Me – $250.8M
8. Shrek Forever After – $238.3M
9. How to Train Your Dragon – $217.5M
10. The Karate Kid – $176.5M
