Set for release in 2018, the Tomb Raider film reboot will star Alicia Vikander as beloved female protagonist Lara Croft.
Taking the story back to the original films and Lara’s relationship with her dad, the new Tomb Raider film will explore this emotional story and Lara’s complex life before raiding Tombs, taking the story back to its roots.
Due to the most recent Tomb Raider games, fans have experienced the growth of her character and the making of her adult self. In the games Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider, we get to know an emotionally driven Lara Croft, a character fighting for survival. This interesting prequel on the Tomb Raider games has opened up the possibility of a new film and with our heroine at her most exposed, we think the reboot exploring a young and fragile Lara Croft, is set to an incredible character profile.
Alicia Vikander steps into the role of portraying young Lara and due to her recent success in critically acclaimed films such as Ex Machina and The Danish Girl, we think she’s a great choice.
