With 2011 drawing to a close and major movie award season around the corner, Hollywood is gearing up for the next pack of stars that will be taking over magazine covers, red carpets and Twitter feeds.

More importantly, these are the stars that will be taking over the silver screen -- some in the form of a sequel or the beginning of a trilogy.

Others on this list already had breakout films that came out in 2011 (Elizabeth Olsen with Martha Marcy May Marlene, or Brit Marling with Another Earth).

The average age of the stars on this list is 25, with Tom Hiddleston clocking in at 30 and Josh Hutcherson as the youngest of the bunch at just 19 years old.

Two on the list appear in the first of a trilogy of films based on popular novels (Hutcherson in The Hunger Games, Rooney Mara in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). One has a small role in the final chapter of a trilogy (Juno Temple in The Dark Knight Rises), while another is about to start a new franchise (Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man).

Four hail from the UK (Hiddleston, Felicity Jones, Temple, Jeremy Irvine) while two have British-American citizenships (Garfield, Collins).

Here is a bit more about the 10 stars to watch in 2012.
