Looks like 2012 was a record year for... movies!
Americans apparently went to theaters in droves this past year, with nearly 11-billion bucks in ticket sales.
And that's pretty good, analysts say, in this age of video streaming on computer tablets and large screen H-D televisions.
One analyst thinks 2013 may be even better.
A number of high-profile sequels are set to hit theaters, including Thor, Ironman, Superman, Star Trek and Hunger Games films.
