Total 3D revenues equated to 19.0 per cent of total domestic box office revenues in 2011, representing a decline from the share the previous year (20.6 per cent), despite a 66 per cent surge in dedicated releases. However, the year was always going to be difficult given the comparison with the runaway success of Avatar, first released in December 2009 but still on release in 2010. The after-effects of Avatar could also go some way to explaining a 36 per cent drop in average 3D BO by title year on year.
