New Photo: Vikander As Lara In “Tomb Raider”

Empire has released a new still from the upcoming reboot of the “Tomb Raider” film franchise with Oscar winner Alicia Vikander as video game heroine Lara Croft.

Speaking with the magazine, Vikander, promises a more modern-day take with this younger interpretation of the character: “We asked what are the famous traits of this person? How can we demonstrate them in the story, but make her feel like a young woman in 2018?.”

Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, Hannah John-Kamen and Dominic West co-star in the film which boasts a story heavily influenced by the 2013 game reboot which sees Lara shipwrecked on a fictional island in the South China Sea.

“Tomb Raider” opens in cinemas on March 16th 2018.
