Alicia Vikander Will Play Laura Croft In New Movie.
Say hello to the new Laura Croft. Alicia Vikander will star as the adventurous archeologist in an upcoming Tomb Raider movie.
Her previous roles include Ex Machina and The Danish Girl. Now she’s playing an English girl in a new Tomb Raider movie that will serve as a Lara Croft origin story. Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider movies from the early 2000’s gave us a picture of Croft as a seasoned heroine already in the action. This time those who haven’t played the game will get a chance to see where Lara Croft comes from.
I can’t think of a better choice than Vikander for this role. The new actress will be punching alongside Matt Damon in the next Jason Bourne movie so she’s no stranger to action packed films.
There’s no release date for the new Tomb Raider movie but it’s good to see they’ve cast the leading lady. What do you think? Will Vikander do justice to the character?
