Hello Alicia fans – It’s finally here!! The first official trailer for “Tomb Raider” was released this morning, and it looks amazing. I’ll just let it speak for itself – you can now check it out below. Warner Bros. also released a great new featurette titled “Becoming Lara Croft”, where we get an exclusive inside look to the preparations Alicia did for the role. I especially love the featurette, as it shows how extremely hard Alicia worked on this film – and I love what the rest of the cast and crew have to say about her. I am so proud of her!

I’ve been watching both clips on repeat all morning, so make sure to check them out. I have also updated our gallery with HD screen captures from both clips – links and previews below.

VANITY FAIR – Alicia Vikander had a major breakout year in 2015, playing both a mysterious (and eventually vengeful) robot in Ex Machina as well as a devoted wife and artist in The Danish Girl. It was the latter role that won her the Oscar and could have minted an entire career in thoughtful period dramas. Instead, for her follow-up, Vikander is going the action-heroine route, donning the iconic tank top and cargo pants of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

In these first-look images, see Vikander take on the role made famous first in the video-game series and then in the two films starring Angelina Jolie. But this version of Lara comes with a new backstory, and a new motivation for her adventures: seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes. Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.

As the official plot description puts it, “Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.”

“When I was asked to take on this role I got really excited—Lara Croft is a truly iconic character,“ Vikander told Vanity Fair via e-mail. “I think people can identify with her for lots of different reasons, but for me I very much see her as a model for many young women. She’s trying to carve out her place in the world and connect her future with her past. She also has a fantastic mix of traits—tough, smart, vulnerable, plus she’s kick ass! She is also uniquely different to other characters I have taken on previously. It’s a lot of fun trying to get into Lara’s head and the challenge of getting to grips with such a physical role is an element of this project that I find an absolute thrill.”

Producer Graham King, who won an Oscar as producer of The Departed, adds: “Alicia Vikander brings tremendous depth and vulnerability to this character, which is every bit as important as Lara Croft’s fierce strength, determination, and physicality. Our film takes Lara from her early origins, to the physical and emotional challenges through which she ultimately becomes the Tomb Raider. It’s a complex character, requiring a range of elements and Alicia brings all of that together brilliantly in her portrayal.”

Tomb Raider, directed by Roar Uthaug and co-starring Dominic West, Walton Goggins, and Daniel Wu, comes to theaters on March 16, 2018.

Source | Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander is slated to portray the video game favorite Lara Croft in an emotional origin “Tomb Raider” movie coming this 2018.

Vikander (The Danish Girl, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) will play a younger Lara Croft who is searching for her father. The setting of the story will take fans back to the very first Tomb Raider movies and games. Nostalgia will play a big part of the project. King stated in his interview with HeyUGuys that the movie is going to be a “back to the roots story.”

News Everyday confirms that the film will be released in the US on March 16, 2018. This will finally put to rest many fans who were wondering which version of Croft is better on the big screen. While Vikander and Jolie certainly have their own strengths and styles, we cannot give a verdict until we see it ourselves.

In the meantime, fans of the original video game are more excited than ever. In addition to the coming movies, the 20th anniversary of the “Rise of the Tomb Raider” game is being celebrated with some major updates. There are additional skins and outfits, but the biggest bonus comes in the form of new levels and challenges.
