Brie Larson Auditioned for Star Wars, Terminator and The Hunger Games

Brie Larson has been established as one of the strongest superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with her role as Captain Marvel. But she’s been auditioning for a number of other major studio blockbuster franchises that just didn’t pan out for her.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Brie Larson started her own YouTube channel in order to allow her to bolster “deep conversations, anti-racist rhetoric, inclusive content.” But the actress will also use the outlet to express herself personally, not to mention talking about her career. When addressing the latter in her inaugural video, Brie Larson revealed that she auditioned for some major franchises, including The Hunger Games, Terminator, and at least one of the Star Wars movies.

Terminator: Dark Fate Honest Trailer

Terminator: Dark Fate is one of many new legacy-quels taking what you loved about the best installments of a franchise, ignoring the movies that were bad, and basically rebooting the whole series by doing it all over again. Unfortunately, audiences didn’t really turn out to see this one in theaters, so we’re not likely to see how the story would have continued. But at the very least, we have the Terminator: Dark Fate Honest Trailer to remind us that this movie makes the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day completely pointless.
