CAPTAIN MARVEL

BRIE LARSON (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel) won the 2016 Academy Award, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award, BAFTA, Critics' Choice and National Board of Review awards for her breakthrough lead performance in the film "Room," directed by Lenny Abrahamson and adapted from the best-selling book by Emma Donoghue, about a young woman and her 5-year-old son who finally gain their freedom after being held captive for years.

Most recently, Larson starred in "The Glass Castle," based on the best-selling memoir by Jeannette Walls, reteaming her with director Destin Daniel Cretton. The film was released by Lionsgate in August 2017. Earlier that year, she starred in Warner Bros.' "Kong: Skull Island," directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, which earned $566 million worldwide, and the Martin Scorsese executive-produced '70s crime thriller "Free Fire," directed by Ben Wheatley. The latter premiered at the 2016 Toronto and London film festivals.

Next up, Larson will be seen in Cretton's "Just Mercy," alongside Michael B. Jordan, scheduled to be released in January 2020. She is also set to produce and star in the upcoming "Victoria Woodhull" for Amazon Studios-about the first female candidate for the presidency of the United States.

In addition to acting, Larson is a writer and director. Her feature film directorial debut, "Unicorn Store," premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. She also starred. A short film she wrote and directed, "The Arm," won the Special Jury Award for Comedic Storytelling at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

In 2013, Larson starred in "Short Term 12," her first collaboration with director Destin Daniel Cretton. Her dramatic role as Grace, the director of a foster care facility, earned her best actress wins at the Locarno Film Festival and Gotham Awards, and a best actress nomination at the Critics' Choice Awards. The Los Angeles Times labeled her the "It Girl" of the SXSW Film Festival, where the film first premiered.

Larson has worked with top directors and co-stars on notable films, including Judd Apatow's "Trainwreck" opposite writer/star Amy Schumer; Rupert Wyatt's "The Gambler" opposite Mark Wahlberg; James Ponsoldt's "The Spectacular Now" opposite Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller; Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, "Don Jon"; Phil Lord and Chris Miller's "21 Jump Street" as the love interest to Jonah Hill; Oren Moverman's "Rampart" as the defiant daughter of Woody Harrelson; Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World"; and Noah Baumbach's "Greenberg" as a young temptress flirting with Ben Stiller.

Larson is still widely recognized for her portrayal of Toni Collette's sarcastic and rebellious daughter in Showtime's breakout comedy-drama "United States of Tara," which was created by Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody and based on an original idea by Steven Spielberg. She has appeared onstage at the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival in the role of Emily in "Our Town" and recurred on the FX cult favorite series "The League." A native of Sacramento, Larson started studying drama at the early age of 6, as the youngest student ever to attend the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. Larson currently resides in Los Angeles.
