Strong end to the year for movie industry

The box office tally for 2013 is forecast to reach $10.9B to edge out last year's mark of $10.8B.

A string of Q4 hits and box office surprises helped the industry after the first three quarters of the year saw some worrying high-profile misfires for studios (CMCSA, DIS, TWX, LGF, SNE, DWA, FOXA, VIAB) .

The outlook for 2014 looks brighter after theater operators (CKEC, CNK, RGC, MCS, RDI, AMC) saw success late in the year with higher pricing and with the IMAX (IMAX) format more entrenched with moviegoers.
