Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft
Star Wars fans lamented after Alicia Vikander was announced to play Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot instead of Daisy Ridley.
Despite facts that Daisy Ridley was approached for the part, Variety reported that Vikander was the producer's top choice from the get go. Recently Vikander’s career has been moving forward quickly. You might remember for playing the android in Ex-Machina as well as her role in The Man from Uncle with Superman himself Henry Cavill, and last year’s The Danish Girl.
The reboot reportedly will revolve around the 2013 Lara Croft video game with the screenplay written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Roar Uthaug is said to direct and the movie will hit theaters as soon as October 6, 2017. Tomb Raider has always been one of my favorite games so I can’t wait to see a trailer.
