Summer Poll Results

All last week we ran a number of different movie polls leading up to the official start of the 2010 summer moviegoing season. Now I'm back to announce the results of those polls, but before I do I have to thank each and every one of you for voting and sending in your comments. We have so much fun here at the Fandango blog, and it's great to see all of you get in on the action too.

The results please …
 
Summer Poll: Which Summer Blockbuster Will Make the Most Money? (Full results here)
'Iron Man 2'
 
Winner: Iron Man 2 (51.4 %)
 
Runner Up: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (18.4%)
 
Do They Deserve The Win: Yes, definitely. Iron Man 2 is a perfect example of summer escapism, with some really fun action sequences, lots of cool special effects, and a cast that keeps you entertained the entire time. Not to mention … hey, I don't think I could ever get tired of watching Scarlett Johansson in that Black Widow costume.
 
Summer Poll: Which rapper-turned-actor are you most looking forward to seeing on the screen this summer?  (Full results here)
 
Winner: Mark Wahlberg (77.8 %)
 
Runner Up: Sean "P. Diddy" Combs (3.8 %)
 
Do They Deserve The Win: Wahlberg absolutely demolished the competition, proving he's still the reigning champion when it comes to rapper-turned-actors. And yes, he does deserve the win. Hopefully by taking on a silly comedy like The Other Guys, Wahlberg – who tends to come off as a little too serious in most of his roles -- will show us whether or not he actually belongs in a silly comedy.
 
Summer Poll: Which New Toy are you Most Anticipating in Toy Story 3? (Full results here)
Lots o' Huggin' Bear
 
Winner: Ken, Barbie's friend (27%)
 
Runner Up: Lots o' Hugging Bear (20%)
 
Do They Deserve The Win: Well, considering I picked Ken to win because I'm a huge Michael Keaton fan (and Keaton voices the character), I'd say he definitely deserves the win. Here's hoping this role paves the way for a huge Keaton comeback. And speaking of …
 
Summer Poll: Which actor are you most looking forward to making a comeback this summer? (Full results here)
 
Winner: Michael Keaton (53.4%)
 
Runner Up: Tom Selleck (16.3%)
 
Do They Deserve The Win: If you read my previous entry, then you know what I'm about to say here. Of course Keaton deserves to win – he's unbelievably awesome and is in need of a big-screen comeback, like, yesterday.
 
Summer Poll: Which Summer Movie Actor is Going to be the Breakout Star of Tomorrow? (Full results here)
Alex Pettyfer
 
Winner: Alex Pettyfer, Beastly (46%)
 
 
Do They Deserve The Win: Honestly, I'm not all too familiar with Pettyfer or Egan (I actually thought Jaden Smith would win, but he came in third), so I'm probably not the best person to judge this category. But since Pettyfer is the star of Summit Entertainment's next big film (ie: Beastly), I could see why he won. The biggest surprise for me, honestly, was that Ashley Greene (Eclipse) didn't pull in more than 9% of the votes. In my opinion, she's about to break out in a big way, but this round will go to Pettyfer.
 
What do you think of all the results? Did Fandango readers get anything wrong, or do you agree with all the decisions?
