Welcome to y’all! I’m finally able to open this site… Welcome to Brie Larson Archives (b-larson.net), your newest source for everything about the Academy Award Winner Brie Larson. She is most known for her work on movies such as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Short Term 12 and Room, in which she got her first Academy Award. Among her upcoming projects we can include Marvel’s Captain Marvel and Marvel’s Avengers 4. Make sure you keep checking our site for news, videos and images of Brie’s work! As you wll note, we have a partnership with Brie Larson Brasil and we’ll share the same photo gallery.
Brie Larson’s upcoming movie “Busmati Blues” got its first trailer. The movie was filmed in 2015 and has not release date yet.
It took months before Marvel Studios formally announced who would be playing the buzzed about role of Captain Marvel, and it took Brie Larson months to decided whether or not to take it. In an interview with Net-a-Porter’s Porter magazine, the Oscar winner revealed what ultimately swayed her to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“I spent months thinking about whether or not I was going to do the film and I realized that it was a chance to tell a story on the largest scale possible,” she said. “I know it is going to make me lose some of the things I love most about my life, but I think it’s worth it.”
Larson will portray Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, a film set before the events of the first Iron Man movie. Samuel L. Jackson will return as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury — this time with both eyes — in a story involving the strongwoman battling the aliens known as Skrulls.
The comics envisioned Carol as an Air Force and C.I.A. service member whose DNA is spliced together with the alien Kree race, granting her superhuman strength, invulnerability, flight, and the power to launch concussive energy blasts from her hands. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige teased that, when Captain Marvel comes on the scene, she’ll “be by far the strongest character we’ve ever had” in a Marvel film.
Larson evolved from an indie-star-to-watch to one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood, since she won the best actress Oscar in 2016 for the film Room. But landing a major role in a Marvel Studios film is another level. Larson told The Hollywood Reporter in a 2016 interview how much she values her privacy. “I can’t help but trip out about how similar my life is to Room,” she said. “It’s me wanting to stay in my own little bubble and remain anonymous and invisible and at the same time needing to step up to this hand that I’ve been given.”
The Glass Castle star previously said of accepting the role of Captain Marvel, “Ultimately, I couldn’t deny the fact that this movie is everything I care about, everything that’s progressive and important and meaningful, and a symbol I wished I would’ve had growing up. I really, really feel like it’s worth it if it can bring understanding and confidence to young women — I’ll do it.”

Brie Larson’s directorial debut, “Unicorn Store,” is a replica of your teenage mood board: It has glitter, splashes of pink, annoying parents, vibrant ribbons and, of course, a shiny white mythological beast.
Larson always wanted a unicorn. It was her childhood wish, which helps to explain her attraction to this movie. She first auditioned for “Unicorn Store” five years ago, before “Short Term 12″ provided her breakout flash and long before “Room” made her an Oscar winner. Rebel Wilson got the role instead. But, in typical Hollywood fashion, the project fell apart ― until about two years ago, when producers approached Larson with an offer to direct it herself. Now, Larson wants to embrace the anything-is-possible phase of her career.
After spending a year shaping Samantha McIntyre’s script using inspiration from Joseph Campbell’s theories about the archetypal hero’s journey, Larson cast herself in the lead role. (She initially wanted to find an unknown actress.) Larson plays Kit, an emotionally stunted 20-something with splintered dreams of becoming an accomplished artist. “You guys still like me, right?” Kit asks the teddy bears in her childhood bedroom.
After moving back in with her parents (Joan Cusack and Bradley Whitford), Kit finds a dull desk job at a marketing agency. It’s there that she receives a mysterious envelope containing an invitation to something called The Store, where a pink-suited Samuel L. Jackson offers Kit the chance to own her very own unicorn.
When I was coming up I would scare people at auditions because I would be too intense.Brie Larson
“The main thing was thinking about the metaphor of the unicorn and allowing the story to read as many different interpretations,” Larson told HuffPost last week at the Toronto Film Festival, where “Unicorn Store” premiered. “So, what is the unicorn? Is it your ultimate dream? Is it connecting to your childhood self? Is it almost spiritual? Because the unicorn does have almost a religious connotation to it. It’s the third eye and a vortex, and pure light is the color of the rainbow.”
As Kit gets closer and closer to that unicorn ― Jackson’s industrial genie has a lot of prerequisites before it can be hers ― her borderline pervy boss (Hamish Linklater) takes a liking to her. She is given a chance to pitch an ad campaign for a vacuum cleaner. Finally, an avenue to artistic glory! During her noisy presentation, Kit splashes the boardroom with glitter and, in a supervisor’s words, “rainbow-magicalness.” It is, simply, a lot ― which is something else Larson relates to.
“It was somewhat metaphorically autobiographical because when I was coming up I would scare people at auditions because I would be too intense,” she said. “I’d be too much and push things too hard. I was so interested in doing things real that it was a lot. I look back on it and I think it’s kind of like a superhero origin story. You have the powers, but you might accidentally hurt someone. You can’t quite form your fireball right, and everything blows up in your face. When I look back on it, it was like that — I had something, but it wasn’t refined. It was much more animalistic. I think that was hard for me. It was a very painful thing to come to terms with: ‘Oh, I’m too much for people. I have so much I want to give to this, but it’s too much.’”
Now that Larson has calmed down enough to become an A-list actress-turned-director ― she’s also helmed a couple of short films ― it’s only up from here. She’s embracing a superhero origin story of her own, playing the title role in 2019′s “Captain Marvel.”
How about directing one of those little comic-book ditties next?
“Oh yeah, that’s my plan,” she said. “Why not? My new life philosophy is I’m not going to tell myself no. I’m just going to do stuff until someone else tells me no.”
