Josh Hutcherson

  1. Andrew Garfield, The Amazing Spider-Man, 2010.
  2. Douglas Booth, Romeo and Juliet, Italy-SWitzerland-UK-US, 2012.  Forty-six years after the Franco Zeffirelli version another Italian’s take – from TV  director Carlo Carlei.  “So what fresh meat does this 2013 rehash bring to the table?” asked Austin Chronicle critic Kimberley Jones “Startlingly little, unless you favour the flavour of staggering insipidness,” was her reply. “Where,” she concluded, were the full-bodied “violent delights” of Shakespeare’s play.   Booth won Romeo from fellow Brits Sam Claflin, Benjamin Gur and Hollywood’s Josh Hutcherson and Logan Lerman. The Shakespeare adaptations was by Julian Fellowes, Oscar-winner for Gosford Park and Emmy-winner for creating all those Crawleys in  Downton Abbey.
  3. Tye Sheridan, X-Men: Apocalypse, 2015.   “A big monster of a movie,” declared propducer-director Bryan Singer. “A kinda conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters.” Hutcherson, Jamie Blackley, Luke Bracey, Timothée Chalamet, Taron Egerton, Ben Hardy, Logan Lerman, Dylan O’ Brien, Jesse Plemons and Charlie Rowe – all listed to succeed  James Marsden’s Scott Summers/Cyclops from the opening quartet, 1999-201
