The most famous movies of Brie Larson are Short Term 12 and Room. Even though Brie Larson is particularly new to the industry and hasn’t done a large number of big banner movies; she has proved herself by winning an Oscar and Golden Globe for her brilliant acting in the movie Room. Brie has done few films as a leading lady, but whatever she has done she has proved herself to be a solid candidate for a long-lived career in the tinsel town. So much so that in spite of her apparent inexperience in the superhero genre she has been selected to portray the immensely significant role of Miss Marvel in Marvel Cinematic franchise. As such Brie Larson, our gorgeous blonde beauty, will have an essential part in Marvel Phase Three and the upcoming Avengers movies. Until those chartbuster films arrive, however, please enjoy the list of top 10 Movies of Brie Larson till date.

10. Free Fire (2016)

Free Fire, just like its name is based on a situation where everyone is firing at everyone else. Confused? You should be. Two gangs along with the mediator Justine (Brie Larson) are meeting each other at a diner to exchange guns and money. The meeting becomes exciting when a small personal trigger causes them to start shooting at each other. With several third parties entering the equation to kill the two gangs, the comedy ensues. I won’t say that this movie was a mistake for Brie Larson because that is very apparent. However, it introduces her to the comedy genre, giving her a much-needed exposure other than her usual profound roles. To gradually move from Teen drama towards light Teen comedy, she would need more experiences such as this.
