Our first look at the new Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander has arrived and her take on this video game icon looks to be very much in line with the rebooted version of the character.
Another Superman Movie On The Way? However, in new first look images released it looks like actress is the flawless person to take on the role of Lara Croft, who was introduced in first the video games and then the two movies which featured Angelina Jolie in the titular role.
Depicting a much younger Lara, the movie is far grittier than previous films.
The new reboot, or whatever they are calling it, of the video game TOMB RAIDER is heading towards us nearly exactly a year from now. Likewise, Lygdbäck's video workouts "consisting of mostly weight lifting to build muscle and movement training to help build her into the Lara Croft character", according to SELF.
How closely will your movie echo the narrative of the 2013 Tomb Raider video game?
And with familiar character names cropping up, it sounds like a pretty faithful adaptation.
"She's trying to carve out her place in the world and connect her future with her past".
'She also has a fantastic mix of traits-tough, smart, vulnerable, plus she's kick ass!' Alicia Vikander is a great actress (pls watch Ex-Machina for proof), and I really do believe she'll bring a lot to the role.
But will she make a good Lara Croft? "We follow her struggles and her journey toward becoming the person she was meant to be and earning the role of Tomb Raider". She isn't seen with the bow, but given how that's one of Lara's weapons nearly as iconic as her dual pistols, it's a given that she'll be wielding it in the film.
Of course, for now we have to wait and see...
The first ~official~ pics of the Academy Award victor in the iconic Lara Croft get-up (an easy-to-recreate khaki tank / jean combo for your next dress up party) have been released, and the girl is on fire. You're probably just better off sticking to what we'll be getting from Roar Uthaug with next year's Tomb Raider.
It hits Australian cinemas on 15 March 2018 from Roadshow Films, and U.S. theatres on 16 March from Warner.
