Box Office #1s: US Domestic

Marvel's The Avengers was a big hit among many huge box office hits this past year.  Here are the top grossing films of the last ten years, entirely dominated by "franchise" blockbusters:
2012: Marvel's The Avengers
2011: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
2010: Toy Story 3
2009: Avatar
2008: The Dark Knight
2007: Spider-Man 3
2006: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
2005: Star Wars: Episode III
2004: Shrek 2
2003: LOTR: Return of the King

What will be the biggest US domestic release this year? LOTS of franchise stuff... Star Trek Into DarknessIron Man 3Man of Steel? Catching FireThe Hobbit 2? I'd love to see a non fantasy/superhero movie come out of nowhere and catch the top slot.
