Next year will most certainly be an important year for many stars; some actors that have already had their breakthrough roles will move on to other major projects, and other actors who haven't yet had their leading breaks will do so in the next twelve months.

Here are the top movie stars to look out for next year.

1. Maika Monroe - If you remember her from her role as Patricia Whitmore in 'Independence Day: Resurgence', you certainly won't be able to miss her next year. She has seven films coming out in 2017, including 'I'm Not Here' starring J.K. Simmons, 'Felt' with Liam Neeson and 'The Scent of Rain and Lightning' opposite Maggie Grace.
