SWATH STARS SHINE IN A YEAR OF DISAPPOINTING BOX OFFICE
The Los Angeles Times is reporting a disappointing box office for Hollywood this year. With the box office being propped up with 3D movies and a slight increase in ticket prices, the box office is expected to decrease 5.3 percent in 2011 as compared to 2010.
The LA Times also notes that 2010's box office was effected by the Avatar's hold over from 2009 which effected 2010's numbers.
However, there were some bright spots for SWATHERS this year. Kristen Stewart's 'The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn' will be #3 at the box office making at least $269 million, so far, in North America.
Universal's 'Bridesmaids' and Chris Hemsworth's 'Thor' were surprise hits and two of the bright spots at the box office this year as well.
