Goodbye, 2009! Here's a look at some of 2010's most anticipated movies coming soon.

Iron Man 2
Tony Stark's back to enjoying his billionaire, playboy lifestyle, and still finds time to upgrade his iron suit and enforce the peace. Colonel James Rhodes joins him in suiting up, and fans can't wait to see them square off against new foes: Russian arch nemesis Whiplash and sexy Russian spy Black Widow.
Alice in Wonderland
In Disney's Burtonized version of the classic children's story, Johnny Depp plays the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway is a dream-entranced White Queen and Helena Bonham Carter is the big-headed Red Queen. Alice has pretty much forgotten about her first trip to Wonderland, so it's a whole new adventure for her in her return, and she's taking us along for the journey.
After more than a decade, the wait for a Tron sequel is nearly over. Kevin Flynn has been living in the virtual world of the villainous software pirate known as Master Control Program for the past 25 years. When his son Sam looks into his disappearance, Sam and his loyal confidant are pulled into the 3D, cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), Liam Neeson (Clash of the Titans), Sharlto Copley (District 9) and Quinton Jackson make up the team of vets who become do-gooder mercenaries. It's lookin' like a decent action-comedy throw-back to the '80s original. We pity the fools who don't give this one a shot.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
June 30th can't come soon enough for Twihards who are pining to see more of the vampire-human-werewolf love triangle. The stakes are higher as Victoria, a bloodsucker bent on revenge, builds her own army to kill Bella. You can count on Edward and Jacob to serve up the beefcake in IMAX proportions, too. Third time's a charm, but we'll have to wait and see if this most-anticipated flick will "phase" into another record-breaking weekend.
Clash of the Titans
Director Louis Leterrier from Incredible Hunk resurrects the 1981 mythological adventure Clash of the Titans. Sam Worthington plays Perseus the mortal son of Zeus (Liam Neeson) who embarks on a perilous journey in order to win the hand of the imprisoned princess Andromeda (Alexa Davalos).
Oscar winner Russell Crowe returns to the big screen as the legendary hero Robin Hood. The film begins the classic tale after the death of King Richard, following Robin Hood on his rise to infamy, confronting corruption and leading an uprising against the newly crowned King John.
Toy Story 3
The Toy Story franchise welcomes its third edition by reopening the toy box and bringing back Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), Buzz (voiced by Tim Allen) and the rest of the toy gang—all of whom must face new obstacles and crazy adventures that come with being left in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, leaves for college. Whoopi Goldberg and Michael Keaton join the cast.
The Dark Knight's Christopher Nolan takes on psychological sci-fi in Inception. Leonardo DiCaprio leads the cast as a CEO involved in a blackmailing scandal. Joseph Godon-Levitt, Ellen Page, and Marion Cotillard play the supporting roles.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I
Harry Potter fans will have to wait until November to watch the final chapter of the Potter saga on screen. The highly anticipated film follows Harry, Ron and Hermione in a quest to defeat Lord Voldemort. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be divided into two films; Part 2 is set for release six months later.
