After helping to shatter a glass ceiling as the star of Marvel’s first major movie with a female lead, Oscar-winner Brie Larson is stepping into The Glass Castle, a coming-of-age drama revolving around a young woman who grows up amid a poverty-stricken family, and EW has an exclusive first look at two images from the upcoming film.
Adapted from the New York Times best-seller of the same name, the film version of the 2005 autobiography stars Larson as the memoir’s author, Jeannette Walls, who, along with several siblings, was born into a clan of dysfunctional nomads fronted by Rex, an alcoholic, and Rose Mary, an artist.
Though Rex’s addiction often imposes upon the family’s well-being, he sparks his children’s imagination with feelings of hope to distract them from their daily struggles. According to the film’s official synopsis, the family’s nonconforming lifestyle serves as both “their curse and their salvation.”

Ben Wheatley’s action-thriller “Free Fire,” executive produced by Martin Scorsese, will be the closing-night film of the 60th BFI London Film Festival. The film’s director and cast, led by Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy and Armie Hammer, will be on the red carpet for the European premiere on Oct. 16 at London’s Odeon Leicester Square.
The pic’s stars are red hot: Larson won an Oscar this year for “Room” and is set to topline in “Captain Marvel”; Murphy leads the cast in cult TV show “Peaky Blinders” and appears next year in Christopher Nolan’s wartime epic “Dunkirk”; and Hammer features in Nate Parker’s soon-to-be-released “The Birth of a Nation.” Other cast members include Michael Smiley, Sharlto Copley, Jack Reynor and Babou Ceesay.
“Free Fire” is set in Boston in the late ‘70s. Justine (Larson) has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen (Murphy, Smiley) and a gang led by Vernon (Copley) and Ord (Hammer), who are selling them a stash of guns. “When shots are fired in the handover, a heart-stopping game of survival ensues,” according to the press statement.

Room Oscar-winner Brie Larson is taking the lead as Captain Marvel, marking the first time a woman will play the title character in a Marvel Studios movie.
After months of rumors, the actress, also known for her roles in Short Term 12, 21 Jump Street, and (going further back) the teen comedy Sleepover, was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con as the star of the March 2019 film.
Larson took the stage during the Marvel’s Hall H panel, joining Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige as well as the casts of Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, and Spider-Man: Homecoming for a Marvel family portrait.
She later tweeted a photo of herself wearing a Marvel Studios cap to celebrate the announcement. “Call me Captain Marvel,” she wrote.
Captain Marvel has had many iterations in the comics, but when Feige announced the project in October of 2014, he confirmed immediately that this version of Captain Marvel would be a woman.
“Let me clarify,” Feige said. “Captain Marvel has gone by many names in the comics, has had many people who’ve inhabited that costume and used that power base. I want to make it very clear: This hero’s name is Carol Danvers.”
Danvers was created in 1968, appearing in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 — a Captain Marvel story — as an American security officer working alongside Captain Mar-Vell, an alien sent to study the planet Earth. She debuted as the super-powered character Ms. Marvel in the pages of Marvel Comics after her human DNA was fused with genes from the alien race known as the Kree. She went on to inherit the title of Captain Marvel in 2012.
Feige previously said this cinematic version of the character will “straddle two worlds. Her origins are very much Earthbound, but her adventures and power base come from the cosmic realm.”
The character almost appeared in a cameo at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, except… they didn’t have an actress cast in the role.
Now, if Marvel follows its previous game plans, we can look forward to her turning up onscreen in a cameo before her own movie debuts.

Kong: Skull Island reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
Kong: Skull Island director promises ‘the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen’
Beloved mega-ape King Kong has a cinematic history stretching back 83 years. But director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who’s helming next year’s reboot Kong: Skull Island, promises bigger things ahead for the character. In an exclusive image from the film shared with EW, stars Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson find themselves in a boneyard, standing amidst the ruins of a massive creature.
“From the size of the skull, you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore,” says Vogt-Roberts. “Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island.”
