Alicia Vikander is pretty bad-ass in the first Tomb Raider trailer
We’ve all seen the set photos, the official studio photos and pretty much everything else in between. So, it’s time for the first video promo material, and it shows the main heroine Lara Croft in action.
The Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft in the 2018 rebooted action adventure. Directed by Roar Uthaug, Tomb Raider is yet another tale of Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, who must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.
Dominic West will be playing Lord Richard Croft, and Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, Rowan Polonski are in the other supporting roles. The long anticipated reboot is written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and arrives in theaters on March 16, 2018.
Daisy Ridley, Emilia Clarke, Saoirse Ronan and Cara Delevingne were the front-runners for Lara Croft before Alicia Vikander was cast, and unlike her predecessor, Angelina Jolie she was a fan of the video game growing up.
Alicia Vikander is not only the second actress to portray Lara Croft in a movie, but also the second Oscar winning actress to do so after Angelina Jolie.
