Summer Movie Preview 2014: 8 Up-and-Coming Stars

A lot can change in one summer movie season: Around this time last year, Benedict Cumberbatch had yet to begin his 2013 big-screen victory tour, and Henry Cavill’s hairy chest was still for diehards only. Those two were just a few of last summer’s big breakouts — in Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel, respectively — and the May-to-August period is ideal for minting new stars. Which up-and-comers will be making their mark this year? Here are eight whose names you should be learning pronto.
