Summer has wound down and classes are back in session. So it's time to find things to look forward to, to help get through the pop quizzes and long nights of homework. Here's a look at the hot young stars of this month's most anticipated teen movie roles.
Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller from 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'
Emma Watson returns to the big screen on September 21 in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." And while many will be happy to see Hermione Granger's alter ego in a brand new role, it's her "Wallflower" co-stars that are most likely to grab most of the attention. Logan Lerman portrays Charlie, a shy freshman who becomes friends with two seniors and step siblings, played by Watson and Ezra Miller.
Of course movie lovers will recognize 20-year-old Lerman. He's played the title character in the "Percy Jackson" films, which has a new installment due in 2013. In addition he's got three more features in the works "Writers," "Noah" and "The Only Living Boy in New York."
Miller, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer. So far the 19-year-old's resume includes a few recurring roles on shows like "Californication" and "Royal Pains" and a couple of movies like "Every Day," "Another Happy Day" and "We Need to Talk About Kevin." He'll follow up "Wallflower" alongside Mia Wasikowska and Paul Giamatti in "Madame Bovary."
Spencer List in 'Bringing Up Bobby'
"Jessie" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" franchise fans might know Spencer List best as Peyton's twin brother. But the 14-year-old has been slowly building his own Hollywood bio, too, with appearances in films like "Bereavement" and TV series like "iCarly." But his dramatic turn in the upcoming film "Bringing Up Bobby" will most likely bring his career to a whole new level.
List will play a troubled young boy who moves from Europe to Oklahoma with his even more messed up mom. Milla Jovovich, Bill Pullman and Rory Cochrane co-star in the film, which opens on September 28. He'll follow up his "Bobby" role with three more films back-to-back - "Foreclosure" and "Black Dog, Red Dog" debut in 2012 and "Mockingbird" will be out in 2013.
Selena Gomez in 'Hotel Transylvania'
Selena Gomez had to take a little time away from Justin Bieber to go into the studio and record her voice over for "Hotel Transylvania." But when the animated comedy opens on September 28, 2012, the box office take will probably make the separation worth all the trouble.
Gomez plays Mavis, the teenaged daughter of Count Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler). She'll be faced with all the angst ridden moments of meeting a new boy, with the added stress of having a bloodsucker for a father.
Just twenty years old herself, Gomez seems to be focused on starting a more adult shift in her career. She's set to star in an upcoming thriller called "Aftershock," the action movie "Getaway" and the comedy "Feed the Dog."
