All week long, we've been counting down the best music releases, from albums to songs to music videos — even WTF pop culture moments. But what about the world of film?

In fact, there are plenty of exciting acts gracing the silver screen this year. And we've got a feeling that more than a few of these new faces are going to ascend to superstardom in due time. We've rounded up some of the fresh faces hitting theaters near you, including Stefanie Scott and Hayley Kiyoko from the upcoming Insidious 3 (in theaters June 5), that you should be keeping your eyes on this year. Speaking of, have you entered the #InsidiousScareDare challenge to enter to win tickets to Governors Ball in New York City and a stay in an IRL haunted house? Seriously — the prize is spooky good.

Did we miss any hotly tipped actors of the year? Let us know in the comments!

Some original reporting by Kristy Puchko.

  • Stefanie Scott

    18-year-old Stefanie Scott is poised to break out big in 2015. The young talent has already had an impressive career to date, having played Lexi Reed on Disney Channel's A.N.T. Farm and acted in a leading role on Frenemies alongside Zendaya and Bella Thorne. She also dabbled briefly in the pop world last year with her debut single, "I Don't Wanna Let You Go," co-penned by Neon Hitch. Now, she's set to star in both Jem and the Holograms in October and Insidious: Chapter 3 — the prequel to the hit horror series — on June 5.

  • Léa Seydoux

    This French beauty has been turning heads with small but memorable parts in American hits like 'Midnight In Paris,' 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' and 'The Grand Budapest Hotel.' But her controversial and critically heralded drama 'Blue Is rhe Warmest Color' has officially paved Seydoux's way to the big time. In 2015, this gorgeous actress goes from art house It Girl to Bond Girl with 'Spectre.' Next fall, you'll see wall-to-wall Seydoux as the new Bond movie advertises everywhere ahead of its Nov. 6 release.

  • John Boyega

    You might know this smoking hot Brit from his starring role in the 2011 alien invasion comedy 'Attack the Block.' Or maybe you know him feom Instagram, where he Taylor Swift-style shakes off his haters. But most likely you recognize him from his already iconic appearance in the instantly viral teaser for 'Star War: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.' This sci-fi epic is all Boyega has slated for 2015. But it's 'Star Wars.' With this alone, the universe is his oyster.

  • Hayley Kiyoko

    Pop fans might already be familiar with Hayley Kiyoko, who previously performed alongside Tinashe in the former girl group, The Stunners. (She's moved on with her own solo career in recent years.) The seasoned actor has already appeared on Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place and the CW's The Vampire Diaries. Currently, she plays an ex-cyberbully on ABC's The Fosters and along with fellow Insidious: Chapter 3 star Stefanie Scott, Hayley will appear in the upcoming Jem and the Holograms.

  • Mae Whitman

    We've loved her on 'Parenthood' and 'Arrested Development' (yes, her), but Whitman's long stint as stellar supporting player comes to an end this year. In February, this talented and tenacious comedienne will headline a wickedly funny rom-com called 'The DUFF,' an acronym for "Designated Ugly Fat Friend." Its tagline is "either you know one, you have one, or you are one." We expect Whitman's DUFF will not only get laughs and the guy (Robbie Amell), but also the kind of attention this affable actress deserves!

  • Tessa Thompson

    This former 'Veronica Mars' co-star was absent from the show's spin-off movie in 2014. Nonetheles, Thompson had an outstanding year. She took the Sundance Film Festival by storm with the smart and subversive comedy 'Dear White People,' which gained wider praise upon its theatrical release. Then came the riveting ensemble drama 'Selma.' We expect to see plenty of Thompson on award show red carpets in the next couple of months as the buzzed about Martin Luther King Jr. biopic gains momentum. But more importantly, we expect to see more of this daring and dynamic actress snagging exciting roles in 2015.

  • Alicia Vikander

    With gorgeous period pieces like 'Anna Karenina' and 'A Royal Affair,' this Swedish starlet has been steadily gaining critical acclaim. Yet Vikander will leap into the mainstream this year with a starring role in the Guy Ritchie-directed action-comedy 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' And if that weren't enough, she'll appear opposite fellow rising stars Jack O'Connell and Cara Delevingne in Justin Chadwick's 'Tulip Fever.' But most exciting is her turn in 'Ex Machina,' where she'll play a machine with a startling sense of self-awareness and humanity. It's one of the best trailers to hit for 2015, and -- as big Vikander fans -- we can't wait.

  • Dakota Johnson

    Daughter of '80s icons Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, this Texas-born actress seemed genetically destined for fame. But despite making her screen debut opposite her mom in the 1999 dramedy 'Crazy in Alabama,' Johnson's career was slow to start. After appearances in '21 Jump Street' and 'Need for Speed,' this starlet is primed to hit it big by taking on the sultry (and sometimes scandalous) lead of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' opposite our latest obsession, Jamie Dornan. Need we say more?

  • Jillian Bell

    She was one of our favorite scene-stealers of 2014, and this '22 Jump Street' standout is just revving up. Already, Bell has been scooped up to appear in the live-action 'Goosebumps' movie opposite Jack Black, as well as Seth Rogen's untitled Christmas comedy. Plus, she'll be lending her voice to one of the eponymous critters of the animated 'Angry Birds' movie alongside Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad and Jason Sudeikis. But we suspect this is just the first wave of Bell's rise. If plans aren't announced for Bell getting a comedy of her own within the next 12 months, we'll riot.

  • Corbett Tuck

    Corbett Tuck might just be your new favorite slasher femme fatale: The actress has starred in 2010's Insidious and will appear in the upcoming Insidious: Chapter 3 on June 5. She also happens to be the namesake of the character Corbett from the original Saw movie, which was co-created by her husband, Leigh Whannell.

  • Jack O'Connell

    Formerly of the UK's 'Skins,' this English ingendude won praise last year thanks to his stunning turns in the gritty prison drama 'Starred Up' and the Angelina Jolie-directed biopic 'Unbroken.' O'Connell is in a strong position for award season accolades, but his greatest challenge yet is coming in 2015. Jodie Foster has selected him to play a terrorist antagonist opposite George Clooney's conceited TV personality in her upcoming thriller 'Money Monster.' It's sure to be a battle of onscreen intensity that will make the masses stand up and take notice of this scrappy and stupendous star.

  • Cara Delevingne

    More than just a pretty face, this English model turns actress full-force in 2015 with five films set to hit, including the romantic dramas 'Kids in Love' and 'Tulip Fever,' mystery movies 'London Fields' and 'Paper Towns,' and the dazzling fairytale adventure 'Pan.' All this will play prelude to her dynamic entry into the DC cinematic universe as the aptly named Enchantress with 'Suicide Squad,' a supervillain movie boasting Margot Robbie, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto and Will Smith, that will hit in the summer of 2016.

  • Rosabell Laurenti Sellers

    Though raised in New York City, this actress has become a fixture on Italian television. But she'll soon step onto the world's stage, having joined the cast of 'Game of Thrones.' In the wake of the death of our crushed crush Oberyn Martell, the series will open up to include his kin, and that means his vengeance fueled daughter Tyrene, played by Sellers. If this Sand Snake is half as charismatic as her dearly departed dad, Sellers will undoubtedly be the next star to be launched by the hit series.

  • Neel Sethi

    Of all those on our list, this cute kid actor is the greenest. He'll make his feature film debut next October in Walt Disney Studio's hotly anticipated live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's 'The Jungle Book.' While animated animals will have voices provided by the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba and Bill Murray, this grinning charmer will play the lost boy Mowgli in the flesh. Being the only actor on camera in a blockbuster is a big responsibility. But having been selected from thousands of kids who auditioned, Sethi seems set to swing into fame with this fun family-adventure.
