He's only 20 years old, but Tom Holland is emerging as one of Hollywood's brightest stars — and one of the most sought-after by directors. The British actor made his feature film debut five years ago in The Impossible alongside Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor, which garnered him critical praise, opening a new door that eventually led to him playing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
So what is Tom Holland up to in 2017? Well, besides posting stunt-filled videos on his Instagram, crushing it on Lip Sync Battle and using his good image for social endeavors, Holland has been busy with his anticipated movie releases. Tom Holland's latest flicks include In the Heart of the Sea, Captain America: Civil War and The Lost City of Z, but his upcoming releases are even more impressive.
