First Photos of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft Shooting TOMB RAIDER
I was excited to hear that Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander was going to play Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie. She's become one of my favorite actresses working today because she's extremely talented.
Vikander currently shooting Tomb Raider, and thanks to some photos that have surfaced from the set, we have our first look at the actress as Croft. She looks freakin' great in the role! As you can see, the outfit she's wearing is reminiscent of the one we have seen in the video game reboot, which the film is inspired by.
The film follows Lara Croft as she sets out on her first expedition to finish her father's research and uncover ancient secrets in order to clear his disgraced name.
Croft’s father, Lord Richard Croft, is a key figure in the Raider mythos and is an aristocrat and archeologist.
The Wire's Dominic West is set to play Croft's father and Walton Goggins is set to play the villain. Tomb Raider is being directed by Roar Uthaugh and the film is set to be released on March 16th, 2018. I can't wait to see an official image of the Vikander as Croft, but until then, these will have to do.
