Based on the brilliant video game, Lara Croft is a now iconic character and will be getting a big screen reboot in 2018. Angelina Jolie famously portrayed the role in the original 2001 movie adaption and it’s 2003 sequel.
As with all reboots there’s a completely new cast and Alicia Vikander will now be playing the role of Lara Croft. I personally think she’ll do it justice, it’s nice too see the role going too an up and coming young actress rather than a big hollywood giant. Alicia hasn’t been on our screens for long and yet she’s already won an Oscar for best supporting actress in The Danish Girl proving she is more than equip to be the next tomb raider.
It’s been described as more of an origin story than the other films, allowing you to connect too the character rather than just being thrown into the action from the off. I’ve looking forward to this, the previous films were watchable but nothing too special, hopefully this will be the first of a new gritter tomb raider franchise.
Do you agree with the choice of actress to play Lara? Feel free to comment…
