Alice in Wonderland is the Most Anticipated 3D Film of 2010?

The latest MovieTickets.com Weekly Poll (we feature these occasionally) asked ticket buyers which 3D film they're anticipating the most in 2010. MovieTickets claims there are only 14 3D films currently scheduled for this year (although I'm sure that number will go up) and listed the top five results. In the #1 spot is Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, which is actually surprising to me because I thought no one like the second trailer. As always, we have to be weary of these polls because it's not a true representation of what the public thinks, but it is interesting to see the results, especially in the wake of Avatar and the rise of 3D.
Which 3D film are you most anticipating in 2010:
1. Alice in Wonderland (39%)
2. Toy Story 3 (33%)
3. Shrek Forever After (15%)
4. Friday the 13th Part 2 (10%)
5. Rapunzel (3%)
I didn't even realize the Friday the 13th sequel was confirmed as 3D (only rumored)? And I thought no one knew about Rapunzel. Always surprised by these results, which is why I like featuring them for everyone to discuss. With Avatar already past $500 million at the box office (and still accounting for 72% of sales on MovieTickets.com), I think the US population now has a taste for 3D. I'll be curious to see what happens with these other big 3D movies through 2010 though, since the quality of the 3D in Avatar is the best I've ever seen. Does everyone even want to see any more 3D movies? What will happen with 3D this year?
