Back in February we were super happy to announce to you guys that the first pictures of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the coming Tomb Raider reboot were finally available.
As most of you know, Angelina Jolie formerly played the role, and while she looked absolutely killer doing it, none of us are complaining about Vikander as her replacement. Especially with the release of these new pictures.
Alicia has been in hit films like Jason Bourne, and Ex Machina. She even won The Academy Award in 2016 for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for playing Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl. With titles like that under her belt, we have no doubt that she'll be able to bring her own talent and flair to the beloved (now) trilogy.
The release date remains March 16, 2018 (which is a Friday, by the way). Other starring roles include Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, and Dominic West.
