Tomb Raider Reboot Casts Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft


#1

Tomb Raider will be directed by Roar Uthaug. According to the Norwegian director, the film reboot will draw inspiration from Square Enix’s new games and feature a relatable Lara Croft that feels “like a real human being.”


I am not familiar with with Vikander works, but I do prefer her over Ridley.


#2

I would have preferred the voice of Lara herself, Camilla Luddington.


#3

Interesting pick.


#4

Fantastic choice.

Ridley’s fine, but I think she’s probably now too connected to the Star Wars franchise in the minds of the average viewer. It could work for the film financially (though I don’t think a Tomb Raider flick, based on the recent revival, will need a boost), but I think Alicia will bring a lot more depth to the table for the character.

Let’s just hope the movie is better than the previous ones.

Then again, it’s not that hard to be better


#6

Omg Alicia is Swedish and she’s seriously one of the best female actors ever out there. This will be so interesting!


#7

I heard she’s got an Oscar and had raved praises for her performance in The Danish Girl. I also liked her from The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

So if given a proper script and direction, I think she could slay the role. I love Lara so much. :heart:

I was really looking forward to Ridley… I told so many people that she should be the new Lara after seeing Star Wars.
