US cinema attendance 5% down on 2009

You know this article (via Newsalert) didn't even include Avatar, even if it did premiere in late 2009 as opposed to early 2010.
The number of north Americans who went to the cinema in 2010 was around 5% down on the 2009 total, figures show.

Box office analysts at Hollywood.com forecast 1.35 billion tickets will be sold by the end of the year, down on the 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 $10.6bn (£6.9bn), due to increased ticket prices.
The article offers this prediction for next year:
It is thought attendance figures in the US and Canada will rise next year, when sequels to hit comedy The Hangover and Pirates of the Caribbean are released.
Any other good movies to hit movie screens this year?
