The Riot Club was a movie that already been a hit at the Toronto International Film Festival and will be released at the end of the week.

The Riot Club is based on the play Posh, sees Lone Scherfig back in the director's chair, and brings together a terrific cast.

We take a look at some of the actors that make up the exclusive Riot Club.

- Max Irons (Miles Richards)

It was back in 2004 that Irons made his feature film debut, but it is in recent years that he has started to make a name for himself.

He has moved successfully between TV and film projects, with the likes of Red Riding Hood, The Host, and The White Queen under his belt.

The Riot Club is another big role for the actor and will push his star even higher. 2014 has also been a busy year for the actor as he has completed work on The Devil's Harvest & Woman in Gold.

The Devil's Harvest will see him work with Terence Stamp & Barry Pepper, while Woman in Gold sees him star alongside Ryan Reynolds and Helen Mirren.

- Sam Claflin (Alistair Ryle)

Sam Claflin was already doing pretty well for himself with Snow White and the Huntsman and Pirates of the Caribbean, until he landed the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games.

Catching Fire hit the big screen last autumn, and really saw the actor's profile rocket. He will be back as Finnick for the final two Hunger Games movies this autumn and in 2015.

We have also seen the actor star in The Quiet Ones this year, and he is set to team up with Lily Collins for Love, Rosie.

Love, Rosie is an adaptation of the novel Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern, and sees Christian Ditter in the director's chair.

Claflin is one of the most exciting British actors around at the moment, as he continues to show his versatility by mixing and matching his roles and projects.

- Douglas Booth (Harry Villiers)

We have only seen Douglas Booth on the big screen once this year... but that film happened to be box office hit Noah.

We have seen Booth in the likes of Romeo & Juliet and LOL in recent years, but Noah was the biggest film of his career and allowed him to work with Russell Crowe and director Noah Aronofsky.

Booth is an actor well and truly on the rise, and The Riot Club sees him team up with other actors who are also making a name for themselves.

And that success looks set to continue into 2015, as we will be seeing him in Jupiter Ascending - directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski - and he has landed a role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombie.

- Freddie Fox (James Leighton-Masters)

Freddie Fox is another actor who has successfully moved between TV and film as he has tried to make a name for himself as an actor.

The last few years have been very successful with The Three Musketeers and TV series Parade's End under his belt.

Fox is currently enjoying critical success with his new film Pride, which follows the lesbian and gay activists who supported the miners during the strike in the eighties.

The movie sees him star with Bill Nighy, Dominic West, and Imelda Staunton and is winning over critics & audiences.

The Riot Club is another great ensemble film for the actor, who also has Frankenstein in the pipeline.

Frankenstein is set to be a 2015 film not to miss, and sees Fox team up with Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy, & director Paul McGuigan.

- Sam Reid (Hugo Fraser-Tyrwhitt)

2014 has been a very busy year for Sam Reid, as we have already seen him in Belle and The Railway Man - both of which were movies that were met well on release.

As well as The Riot Club this autumn, we are also going to see him appear in '71 and Serena: both of which will be playing at the BFI London Film Festival at the beginning of next month.

Serena is a Depression-era drama with Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper, while '71 follows a British soldier who is accidentally left on the streets of Belfast after a riot.

'71 sees Reid part of another exciting cast, as Jack O'Connell, Sean Harris, and Paul Anderson will also star.

The actor has also completed work on Tigers and thriller Despite the Falling Snow.

- Ben Schnetzer (Dimitri Mitropoulos)

Ben Schnetzer is another actor that we have seen plenty of this year, with major roles in Pride and The Book Thief.

The Book Thief is an adaptation of the novel of the same name, and sees the actor take on the role of Max Vandenburg. While he takes on the lead role of Mark in the upbeat Pride.

Pride hit the big screen on Friday and is one of the movies that really will help put the twenty four year old actor on the map.

This will only be on the up for Schnetzer heading into 2015, as he has also completed work on Punk's Dead and the highly anticipated Warcraft.

Warcraft is based on the popular computer game, and sees Duncan Jones back in the director's chair.

Schnetzer is part of an exciting cast that includes Dominic Cooper, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, and Ben Foster.

Olly Alexander, Matthew Beard, Jack Farthing, and Josh O'Connor make up The Riot Club. Jessica Brown Findlay, Holliday Grainger, and Tom Hollander also star in the film.

The Riot Club is released 19th September.
