Overall business likely will be down sharply this coming weekend compared to the same period a year ago, when “Toy Story 3” had a huge debut of $110.3 million.

But revenues should rebound in late June and July as Hollywood delivers hotly anticipated sequels to the “Cars,” ”Transformers” and “Harry Potter” franchises.

“Summer may turn out to be a rollercoaster,” said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “May was so incredibly strong, and we’re going to step back a little bit in June, then come back really strong in July.”

Domestic revenues so far this year total $4.4 billion, down 7 percent from 2010 receipts.
