Alicia Vikander has landed the coveted role of Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider reboot film, Variety reports!

Angelina Jolie Pitt previously took on the role in the 2001 and 2003 films. Daisy Ridley was originally rumored to have landed the role in the reboot.

    Omg! Didn’t see that one coming! Thought Daisy Ridley would get that part for sure! Will be cool to see Alicia in a action movie. And yay for Roar Uthaug directing it. Not every day that a Norwegian gets to directed a huge Hollywood movie!

    I love this. I was lukewarm on the idea of Daisy Ridley doing double duty on Star Wars and Tomb Raider. Fans are lucky to be getting a top tier actor, who can focus fully on this project.

    I don’t really see her as Lara Croft! As a fan I’m really dissappointed but video games adaption are always shit..

  • Dave Roberts

    I trust Alicia Vikander. I’m glad they picked an actor based on talent rather than sex appeal, not to say she isn’t good looking. Vikander could act circles around many actors right now. Jolie at the time she was cast in Tomb Raider had one good role.

    If it’s a story like the recent reboot of games then they need someone who has the ability to captivate without constant action. The tone will be much slower and probably less dialogue. If Ex-Machina showed anything is she can handle an expressive performance..

    More intentionally terribly BAD casting for the sole intention of burying a would-be franchise to earn the insurance money, Jared Eng. Media is such a dead business.
