'Dawn Treader' returns franchise to winter
Twentieth Century Fox and Walden Media will release “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” on Dec. 10, 2010.Move means “Narnia” will once again be a winter franchise. Fox recently partnered with Walden on the “Narnia” film series after Disney and Walden parted ways. Mouse House released the first two “Narnia” films. First one debuted in December 2005 and cumed $291.7 million domestically. Sequel was released last May to less spectacular results, cuming $141.2 million at the North American box office. Walden and Fox believe “Narnia” is better suited for a December release. As of now, “Dawn Treader” has the 2010 date to itself.
