First look! Alicia Vikander IS Lara Croft in Tomb Raider images


It's time to put Angelina Jolie out of your mind because there's a new Tomb Raider in town. Step forward Ex Machina star and The Danish Girl Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, who is stepping into pistol-packing Lara's Croft boots for a movie based on the 2013 Crystal Dynamics console game reboot. 

Directed by Roar Uthaug who last year brought us cracking Norwegian disaster movie The Wave, the film co-stars Dominic West as Lara's father and The Hateful Eight's Walton Goggins as the chief baddie. But enough about that: you really want to see Vikander in action as Lara, and The Daily Mail have unveiled a couple of behind the scenes shots teasing her athletic abilities.

Does Alicia look the part or what? Let us know @Cineworld if this stands a chance of doing justice to the legendary Tomb Raider. The movie is released on 16th March 2018.
