Some might call Brie Larson’s fame overnight. But that isn’t the truth. Before ‘Room’ came along and changed her fortunes, she had been doing side roles in movies and TV shows. And then came along ‘Short Term 12’, which featured her in a career-defining performance. This indie film immediately brought a lot of attention on Larson. As a result of which, she got cast in ‘Room’. We all know rest of the story. She went on to win an Oscar for Best Actress and then subsequently bagged role as Captain Marvel, Marvel’s first female superhero film.
At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Brie Larson movie or TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Brie Larson films/TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Brie Larson movies would be as good as some of her recent ones.
1. Avengers Endgame (2019)
We all know how Avengers: Infinity War ended. At this point, fans are eager to know fate of their favorite heroes — several of them were turned into dust at the end of the film. It is a foregone conclusion now that since Marvel can’t officially “kill” any superhero that has a film scheduled to be released later during the year, it is most likely that most, if not all, the heroes who were turned into dust will return. How? Well, we will have to wait till next year to see what trickery filmmakers come up with.
2. Just Mercy (2020)
‘Just Mercy’ is an upcoming drama based on the book ‘Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption,’ written by Bryan Stevenson. The movie tells the true story of Stevenson, played by Michael B. Jordan, a young lawyer who locks horn with a corrupt legal system. Brie Larson reunites with her ‘Short Term 12’ director Destin Cretton for the movie, which also has Jamie Foxx on board. The New York Times best-selling memoir documents Bryan Stevenson’s struggle and formation of the Equal Justice Initiative to fight for the wrongly condemned and death-row prisoners. THR reports that the movie follows Stevenson’s first controversial case of Walter McMillian, an African American who was sentenced to death for a criminal act he didn’t commit. Larson plays the young local advocate Eva Ansley who supports and works alongside Stevenson to save the lives of wrongly sentenced innocent souls. ‘Just Mercy‘ hits theaters on January 17, 2020.
