While many fans are delighted to see fresh faces being recognized for their talent and potential, there were also a portion of fans who couldn’t help but feel skeptical. For example, one fan even went as far as to say that Hollywood has “fallen off” from having legends like Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt in the spotlight to featuring a new generation of actors.

That being said, while some of the actors on the list may have yet to prove their star power at the box office, they have shown immense talent and potential in their respective roles. For instance, 26-year-old Jacob Elordi leveraged his breakthrough role as the love interest in the popular series The Kissing Booth on Netflix.

Although the actor seems to stay away from the spotlight as much as possible, Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn cemented his potential as a movie star. However, because the movie was only available on streaming services, box office success could never be the film’s deciding factor, even with its extensive distribution. 

However, a few of the actors on the list have proven their mettle in the movie business. Zendaya, for instance, has garnered critical acclaim for her performances in films like Malcolm & Marie and The Greatest Showman, while Timothée Chalamet has enthralled us with his roles in Call Me By Your Name and Little Women.

Exploring the Hollywood Newcomers Who Are Still Working to Prove Their Box Office Appeal

In the ever-evolving world of the film industry, new A-list young movie stars are constantly emerging and winning the hearts of moviegoers worldwide. The above list of these talented 10 actors has been making waves in the industry with their exceptional performances and undeniable charisma.

However, not all of these rising stars have attested to their star power at the box office just yet. While they may have garnered critical acclaim and a strong following, some of these actors are still working towards achieving mainstream success and widespread recognition.

One such actor is Glen Powell, 35, who has appeared in popular films like Hidden Figures and Everybody Wants Some!! but has yet to establish himself as a leading film actor. His last release flick, Devotion (2022), cost $90 million to produce but only grossed $21.8 million worldwide, resulting in a box office failure (Box Office Mojo).

Similarly, Jacob Elordi, an Australian actor best known for his role in the Netflix hit series The Kissing Booth, has yet to break into the mainstream ‘film’ industry. Then, we have Jenna Ortega, Florence Pugh, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Paul Mescal, who are also still building their Hollywood resumes and have yet to prove their star power at the box office.

While these young movie stars may still be on their way to becoming box office sensations, there is no denying their talent and potential to become the next big thing in Hollywood. So, whether you’re a fan of these rising stars or still on the fence, it’s clear that the future of Hollywood is in good hands with these talented actors leading the way!
