Movie junkie? Need to know what’s coming up? Well, 2010 is looking like a spectacular year for blockbuster movies. There are some great pre-launch previews starting to filter through and loads of fans chomping at the bit, awaiting the next installment in their favorite film-story saga (did anyone say vampire?). It takes years to make a major film, so, for the most part, we already know what’s coming down the blockbuster pipeline. In no particular order, here’s the inside scoop on the top 5 most anticipated blockbuster movies of 2010:

5. Toy Story 3
Animated movies rarely result in a sequel worth watching and a “three-quel” is almost always a sure loss. Of course, there is an exception to every rule, and Toy Story may very well be that exception. Pixar is close now to perfection and going back to it roots feels a lot like a welcome home after a long journey.

Tom Hanks and Tim Allen return in their most beloved Pixar roles, and I’m sure devoted fans can’t wait to see what characters Woody and Buzz are up to now. Toy Story 3 opens in Australia June 24th, 2010.

4. Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland
The only movie on the list where the franchise isn’t the movie, it’s the moviemaker.

Tim Burton returns in 2010 to turn the intriguing children’s story about Alice upside-down and inside-out with sets and costumes that will have all of Hollywood talking. The story is set 10 years after Alice was last in Wonderland; she is 19 years old now and learns the meaning of destiny.

The star-studded cast includes Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen, Crispen Glover as The Knave of Hearts, and Anne Hathaway as The White Queen. The planned release date for Alice In Wonderland is March 4th, 2010.

3. Twilight Saga: Eclipse
If not for the disappointing reviews of New Moon, this may have been ranked number 2 on this list. Although highly anticipated, Twilight has lost ground with many outside the teenage girl demographic. In Eclipse, Bella and Edward are back together, but Bella is still hunted and her friendship with Jacob is strained to the breaking point. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are superb in their roles, and we can only imagine – but can’t be sure – that love will triumph. Eclipse premiers on June 30th, 2010. I think the queue for tickets has already started…

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Yes, the last book has been drawn out into two movies, and it was a difficult choice ranking Harry Potter over the Twilight Saga.  But the Deathly Hallows film begins the final chapter, and Harry Potter fans are still to be found aplenty and are hungry for more. This movie begins right where the last one ended. Harry, Hermione, and Ron are still being chased by the Death Eaters as they attempt to save the world. This installment is expected to win new fans that have previously avoided the movie series. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 opens on November 25th, 2010.

1. Iron Man 2
Iron Man was a surprise hit in 2008, overtaking comic book movies with a sweeping rise to the top thanks to the acting skills of Robert Downey, Jr. and a superb script. Tony Stark is back, and this time with all-new villains. Scarlett Johansson plays Black Widow, and Mickey Rourke is Whiplash. Samuel L. Jackson also makes his much-anticipated appearance as Nick Fury. Iron Man 2 is promising more of everything: action, fighting, story and stars. The number-one most anticipated movie of 2010 opens on April 29th, 2010.
