Academy Award-winning actor Alicia Vikander’s first pictures as adventure heroine Lara Croft have hit the internet. In the pics from the sets of her upcoming movie Tomb Raider, she can be seen pulling some stunts in the now iconic grey tank top and dark pants.
In the film, a yet another adaptation of the hit video game Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, she will play the daughter of an aristocratic family who goes looking for treasures in remote, dangerous locations.
Vikander is stepping into the big shoes of Angelina Jolie who starred in two Lara Croft films in 2001 and 2003. Both the films opened to mixed reviews.
While this may be Vikander’s first major solo role, she is currently being hailed as one of the better, younger actors in Hollywood. She delivered stellar performances in films like Ex Machina and The Danish Girl, the latter won her the Oscar for Best Actress in Supporting Role.
Roar Uthaug, a Norwegian director is heading the film which also stars Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu and Dominic West. The film is slated for release on March 16, 2018.
