Today's 5: Tilda's miraculous Julia, Drew's dangerous Lolita, and more 

It's a brand new week. Ready to get this one started with some pizazz? 

Five showbiz anniversaries for May 8th as mood boosters

2009 Julia opens in limited release in the US. It's arguably Tilda Swinton's greatest performance and also as against-type as it comes for the actress who was surprised Erick Zonca thought of her for the motor-mouthed titular sociopath. If you haven't seen it, what in the universe are you waiting for?

In its honor today: Do something totally atypical today, surprise yourself!

1992 Poison Ivy opens in theaters, serving as Drew Barrymore's buzzy "comeback"... yet she was only 17 years old. Child stars grow up fast, y'all...

Posterized: Brie Larson

By Nathaniel R

Last week the directors of Captain Marvel were announced, moving that imaginary Marvel Studios picture, starring Brie Larson, closer to reality. 2019 is still a long way off though we have plenty of Brie to tide us over until then. She's in movie theaters currently as part of Ben Wheatley's crime comedy ensemble picture Free Fire  (reviewed). It's one of two features this spring whichhas featured Brie Larson as the token female amongst a group of adult men fighting for their lives (the other being Kong Skull Island). Which is, if you consider her particular skills as an actress, kind of a waste; to date she's consistently done her most transcendent work opposite other women or child actors.

Though it feels as if Brie Larson only recently exploded into fame having won the Best Actress Oscar for Room (2015), in reality she has been paying her dues for ages, winning her first TV gig at just 9 years of age (a comedy skit on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno) and her first movie gig by 10 (something called Special Delivery in which she played "Little Angel"). She's done a little of everything including an attempted pop career - which goes down really well in a meta sort of way via the satiric prism of her role in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and her role-playing  within "United States of Tara" -- 'Princess Valhalla Hawkwind,' anyone?.

So let's look back on her movie history via POSTERIZED (returning for another season!). We've thrown in all her movies that we could find posters to (a couple others don't seem to have been released) and her three largest TV roles. How many of these 27 Brie Larson projects have you seen?

Tweetweek

It's time for a quick collection of amusing or interesting tweets of the week, some gallows humor too because that's how things are now. After the jump Kong Skull Island, Ashton Sanders from Moonlight, JK Rowling being the best, and more...

Personal Shopper's Official Poster Has Got Your Number

Fresh off its big win for Best Unreleased Film from the prestigious Team Experience Awards, Olivier Assayas and Kristen Stewart’s Personal Shopper keeps racking gasps this week with the release of its official (mesmerizing! gorgeous! strangely reminiscent of Hou Hsaiao-hsein's The Assassin!) poster below. The Cannes-stamped film will finally hit theaters in March and for fans of Clouds of Sils Maria, the duo's inaugural joint endeavor, spring can't come soon enough. If you stare at the poster and repeat the title five times at the stroke of midnight, rumor has it that Kristen Stewart will climb out of your computer screen in a shimmery metallic frock!

'Winners!' Sincerely, Isabelle & Paul

Congratulations to the winners of our Elle poster contest. The posters are signed by Isabelle Huppert and Paul Verhoeven and I asked people to share a story about an early encounter with either a Huppert or Verhoeven film, though winners were drawn randomly.

Congratulates to... Joshua from Texas who writes:

It was Slant's review of that gave me, for the first time, the experience of approaching a film with a legitimate lens. It blew my mind and inspired me to become a Verhoeven devotee (I ordered a box set of all his Dutch films at a quite exorbitant price because I needed to see everything!) as well as laying the foundation for my academic interests; I study celebrity from a rhetorical perspective and wrote my first significant academic paper over Showgirls!

And Salim from Florida who writes:

My favorite Paul Verhoeven film encounter involved getting ready to go to Vegas in 2012 with my then-girlfriend to visit her family and deciding to prep her between Showgirls and Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven as a double feature at my place. Her genuinely positive response and the good we had watching the former told me she might be the one.

The posters are on their way to you!

Thanks to everyone who entered and if you didn't enter but are rooting for Huppert's Oscar nomination, cross your fingers and wish on the Oscar-nominated French stars who preceded her

Blind Poster

Manuel here starting off the year with a lot of questions. They are in reaction to this upcoming film titled Blind. It stars, as you'll see in the poster below, Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore. Who knew that people were clamoring for a reteaming of the stars of The Juror (aka the film that, alongside Striptease earned Ms. Moore a Razzie Award way back she was an undisputed movie star whose flops encouraged scorn and snickering all around Hollywood).

I ran across the poster and had to look up the film's synopsis. Thankfully, it didn't disappoint...
