"Tomb Raider" Photos Reveal Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft

I doubt that the movie is going to live up to the games, but they seem to have done a decent job of bringing Lara to life. As you could imagine, the reboot is going to be based onآ—well, the reboot from 2013. How would you rate Ms. Vikander’s body of work?

Production is finally underway on that long-developing Tomb Raider reboot, as Alicia Vikander is ditching period dramas for a swashbuckling adventure. The Oscar-winning The Danish Girl actress scored the lead role in Tomb Raider after scene-stealing work in Tom Hooper’s quiet drama and a breakout turn in the tremendous sci-fi pic Ex Machina. Vikander fills the role of Lara Croft in the video game adaptation, playing the only daughter of an aristocratic family who ventures out into dangerous locations in search of ancient artifacts with supernatural powers.
