First Look At Alicia Vikander As Lara Croft In TOMB RAIDER

Will anyone discover a winning formula for video game movies? The next attempt is WB and MGM's live-action Tomb Raider film, which just released the first official stills of Vikander in the titular role.

After a series of set photo leaks, here's your first official images of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the 2018 live-action Tomb Raider movie from MGM, Warner Bros. and GK Films.  As you can tell by her battered attire, the project is definitely taking inspiration from the 2013 reboot of the franchise by Crystal Dynamics.  

Vikander told Vanity Fair, "When I was asked to take on this role I got really excited—Lara Croft is a truly iconic character.  I think people can identify with her for lots of different reasons, but for me I very much see her as a model for many young women. 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! She is also uniquely different to other characters I have taken on previously. It's a lot of fun trying to get into Lara’s head and the challenge of getting to grips with such a physical role is an element of this project that I find an absolute thrill."

Are you excited by the prospect of a new Tomb Raider film? Do you think the film will fare better than Warcraft and Assassin's Creed? Let us know in the comment section below.
