'Jason Bourne' star Alicia Vikander discusses her transformation into Lara Croft in this new featurette. 'Tomb Raider' arrives in cinemas March 2018.
Those prepping for Alicia Vikander's debut as Lara Croft in the 'Tomb Raider' reboot appear to have spotted something amiss.
Get your first brief look at 'The Danish Girl' Oscar-winner in action as Lara Croft, ahead of full trailer tomorrow.
More than 13 years since her last big screen appearance, video game heroine Lara Croft is getting the reboot treatment – and now we have our first hints of what her next story will be about. 2001’s ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’ and its 2003 sequel ‘Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life’ saw Angelina Jolie memorably portray the role (alas, she was the only really memorable thing about either film), but the upcoming ‘Tomb Raider’ will see recent Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander (Best Supporting Actress for ‘The Danish Girl’) don the iconic vest and shorts.
Alicia Vikander has reassured ‘Tomb Raider’ fans that her Swedish accent will be well-hidden when she plays aristocratic archaeologist Lara Croft in the upcoming movie reboot, saying she feels “extremely intimidated” by the iconic role. Vikander is taking over the role from Angelina Jolie who played the character in two movies - ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’ and ‘Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life’ - but she promises the new film will be a unique take on the story.
It looks as though ‘Tomb Raider’ has found its Lara Croft. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 27-year-old Alicia Vikander has been cast in the upcoming ‘Tomb Raider’ reboot as the classic videogame heroine. “Lara Croft has been found,” they revealed.
It’s that time of the year where films all over are hopeful of nabbing awards from various ceremonies, but none as big as the Oscars that’ll take place on 28 February.
