LOS ANGELES (AP) – Domestic box-office revenues for 2010 won't quite hit last year's record-setting haul, but they'll be awfully close.

Total movie-ticket sales will reach $10.556 billion, the tracking agency Hollywood.com said Tuesday.

That's a slight drop from the $10.6 billion total from 2009. But it's also only the second time that the annual box office has crossed the $10 billion mark.

At the same time, total attendance was down 5.36 percent from last year. That's the biggest percentage drop year over year since 2005. This will also be the second-lowest attended year of the decade.

"Toy Story 3" was the highest-grossing film released in 2010, earning nearly $415 million.
