All Brie Larson Movies Ranked by Tomatometer
Before she landed at the forefront of comic-book movies with Captain Marvel, Brie Larson stood out in another superhero movie of a more hipster variety: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. That Edgar Wright-directed, Michael Cera-starring, would-be blockbuster had a cast like a who’s who of up-and-coming actors, career momentum that Larson transferred into an impressive run of Certified Fresh hits. These include 21 Jump Street, Short Term 12, Kong: Skull Island, and, of course, Room, which led Larson to a Best Actress Oscar win.
Between Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, she directed her first feature Unicorn Store. Larson’s latest is Just Mercy, co-starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx: See where it places in when we rank all Brie Larson movies by Tomatometer! —Alex Vo
