16 Breakout Movie Stars of 2016: From Gal Gadot to Tom Holland (Photos)

Benedict Wong

Sure, Wong had roles in “Prometheus” and “The Martian,” but he really caught everyone’s eye as the witty Wong in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange.”

Ruth Negga

Ruth Negga’s breakthrough in “Loving” does not make a lot of noise — as a reluctant activist standing up against  the interracial marriage ban of the 1950s — but her impact is deeply felt.

Riz Ahmed

Aside from captivating audiences in HBO’s “The Night Of,” Ahmed also had a great year on the big screen — he starred in “Jason Bourne,” “City of Tiny Lights” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

Lucas Hedges

Hedges made audiences both laugh and cry in the drama, “Manchester by the Sea” — an awards season frontrunner.

Gal Gadot

2016 was Gadot’s year (so far) — she starred in films like “Triple 9” and “Keeping Up with the Joneses,” and started her “Wonder Woman” franchise with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Alden Ehrenreich

Who could forget Ehrenreich’s performance as Hobie Doyle in “Hail, Caesar!” Then, he starred in “Rules Don’t Apply” and THEN news broke he would star as the young Han Solo in a standalone film.

Haley Bennett

Bennett, also on our busiest actors list, revealed her various acting skills as crime wife Estelle in “Hardcore Henry,” bad ass in “The Magnificent Seven” and a troubled woman in “The Girl on the Train.”

Ben Schnetzer

Schnetzer starred in “Warcraft” and “Snowden,” as well as Sundance favorite “Goat,” which was acquired for $2.25 million by Paramount Home Media at the festival.

Lily-Rose Depp

After having an uncredited role in a 2014 film, she starred in Sundance film “Yoga Hosers” with Adam Brody and Ashley Greene, as well as “Planetarium” alongside Natalie Portman and Emmanuel Salinger.

Tom Holland

Everyone loved Holland as Spider-Man/Peter Parker in “Captain: America Civil War,” with even more people anticipating Sony’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” He also starred in “Edge of Winter” and “The Lost City of Z.”

Trevante Rhodes

The actor thoroughly impressed as Black in Oscar season favorite “Moonlight.”

Kate McKinnon

Yes, McKinnon has been around as a comedian for years, but she only really made her big screen debut this year. She voiced two animated characters (“Angry Birds” and “Finding Dory”) and definitely had the best role in the “Ghostbusters” reboot.

Ashton Sanders

Ashton Sanders delivered a heartbreaking performance in “Moonlight,” which will probably stick with people in the months to come.

Jovan Adepo

“Fences” is picking up a lot of awards buzz, with many praising Denzel Washington and Viola Davis for their performances. But Jovan Adepo, who previously only starred in shorts and in “The Leftovers,” will leave a mark with his breakout performance.

Lucy Boynton

Lucy Boynton pops off the screen as the slightly older love interest of the teenage hero in “Sing Street.” She’s already been cast in Kenneth Branagh’s remake of “Murder on the Orient Express.”

Benedict Wong

Sure, Wong had roles in “Prometheus” and “The Martian,” but he really caught everyone’s eye as the witty Wong in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange.”

‘Gorgeous Vortex’: Final Segment of ‘V/H/S’ Trilogy Released on Youtube (Exclusive)

Epic Pictures Group has just released on YouTube the short film “Gorgeous Vortex,” the secret final segment of “V/H/S: Viral,” the third installment of the popular horror anthology series, TheWrap has learned.

“Gorgeous Vortex” is an experimental, high-fashion horror film about a woman fleeing a secret organization. It appears as a surprise segment after the end credits of “V/H/S: Viral.”

“Gorgeous Vortex” was written, directed and produced by Todd Lincoln for Magnolia Pictures/Epic Pictures. Produced by Gary Binkow and Brad Miska, it stars Victoria’s Secret model Jayden Robison and includes an original score by Joseph Bishara (“The Conjuring”), who recently released the soundtrack on vinyl and for digital download.

A fan of the “V/H/S” series, Lincoln set out to shake things up and make a film that wasn’t found-footage.

“I set out to create a film that would feel like an evil puzzle from another dimension or an ominous transmission from the future,” said the director, who was given total creative freedom by the producers.

“Gorgeous Vortex” was inspired by George Lucas‘ early experimental films and the writings of J.G. Ballard and Jean Baudrillard, as well as avant-garde video artists, fashion photography and old Italian horror movies. It has drawn comparisons to the work of David Lynch, David Cronenberg and Stanley Kubrick.

Lincoln previously directed “The Apparition” for Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver. The genre movie starred Ashley Greene (“Twilight”), Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: Civil War”) and Tom Felton (“Harry Potter”).

Lincoln is represented by Craig Gering at CAA and is also the co-founder and co-director of the Tulsa Overground Film & Music Festival, which showcases innovative short films and new media.
