We’ve just had a first look at Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft and she looks totally bad ass.
FINALLY, we can see what Alicia Vikander looks like as the iconic Lara Croft. Images from the upcoming movie Tomb Rider have been released and they show Vikander wearing the costume originating from the game. Let’s not forget it was Angelina Jolie who made it famous but we definitely think that Vikander can pull this off.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Alicia revealed: “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.”
The film is set for release in early 2018 so we still have a bit of a wait.
