There might not be an billion-dollar-plus movie like "Avatar" or "Alice in Wonderland" on this year's first-quarter release slate. But here are eight movies that could make a dent at the domestic box office
Winter B.O., From Bieber to 'Battle: L.A.' (Slideshow)
"Sanctum" (Feb. 4): Tracking firms disagree on what it'll do at the box office, but Universal does have a James Cameron-produced 3D film on its hands
"Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" (Feb. 11): Come next month, that title is going to sum things up nicely for the parents of teenage girls
"Just Go With It" (Feb. 11): The sun rises and sets ... and Adam Sandler/Happy Madison comedies do $100M-plus at the domestic box office
"I Am Number Four" (Feb. 18): Still think Disney is going to fumble its first DreamWorks carry? The studio started running TV ads in December.
"Hall Pass" (Feb. 25): The last time the Farrelly's had this much buzz going on, "Something About Mary" co-star Brett Favre was in his 20s ... and still a Packer
"Rango" (March 4): Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp could buy a large desert nation full of reptiles with the money they've made together on "Pirates."
"Battle: Los Angeles" (March 11): Movies in which Paris and/or Los Angeles get destroyed tend to play well in the Heartland for some reason
"Red Riding Hood" (March 11): My, what stellar box-office credentials you have, Amanda Seyfried.
