After Jumping From Cbs To Cnn, Roberts Jumps From Cnn To Fox
WARNER BROS. BOX OFFICE CHAMP OF 2010Twentieth Century Fox may have had the biggest box office moneymaker of the year in Avatar. And Disney may have had No. 2 and 23 in Toy Story 3 and Alice in Wonderland , but Warner Bros. earned more money throughout the year than either of them, coming in as the box office champ for the third year in a row with $1.88 billion in domestic ticket sales, while Paramount placed second with $1.74 billion. As many box office observers had predicted, the total domestic gross from all studios for 2010 came in a tad lower than for 2009, declining 1.4 percent to $10.46 billion against 2009's record $10.61 billion.
