Thanks to my friend Neide (www.misslilycollins.com), our gallery has been updated with outtakes from last year’s photoshoot of Alicia for Harper’s Bazaar UK.
2016 has come to an end, and while one can say it’s not been the best year in so many ways (we’ve had to say good bye to so many legendary actors, actresses and musicians for starters), it has most definitely been an amazing year for our girl! She’s been busy pretty much from the start of the year, until the recent wrapping of the The Light Between Oceans promotion tour. Since the year has now ended, we found it fitting to do a review of Alicia’s year that has gone by – taking a look at her projects, events, photoshoots, interviews and more! With this being Alicia’s busiest year to date, it’s going to be a long summary, but we hope you’ll have as much fun reading about our girl’s year as we have had writing it.
Our girl kicked off the year by attending the 27th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival awards gala, which was held on January 2 in Palm Springs, California. Alicia graced the red carpet in a playful pink dress designed by Erdem. It only took two days before she picked up her first award of the year – as she received the Rising Star award from the hands of her Danish Girl co-star, Amber Heard, at the event.
A few days later, it was revealed that Alicia had made it to W Magazine’s “Best Hollywood Actors of 2015” list, as the unveiled their cover stars in early January. She did a stunning photoshoot by Peter Lindbergh, looking fierce in a bold top. On January 7, she attended the W Magazine’s ‘Best Performances’ Celebration, which was held in Los Angeles. She continued by attending the BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea and the 40th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, both on January 9.
This year’s Pirelli calendar was unveiled last week, revealing gorgeous new shots of Alicia. The 2017 calendar is all about natural beauty, featuring stunning actresses such as Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moor, Uma Thurman and more. The calendar was shot by photographer Peter Lindbergh, who previously shot it in 1996 and 2002. Head over to our gallery to discover the two beautiful shots of Alicia:
Last friday, Alicia made a guest appearance on the Norwegian talk show “Skavlan”. Skavlan is Scandinavia’s biggest talk show, hosted by Fredrik Skavlan, who interviews Norwegian, Swedish and other international guests every weekend. Alicia was a guest together with the Norwegian talk show host and comedian Jon Almaas, as well as the former Swedish prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. This is her second time at the show, first time being all the way back in 2012.
A clip from the episode has been added to youtube, which you can watch below! Alicia and Jon Almaas seem to be acting out a scene with the host, but I can’t understand what Jon says at the beginning in Norwegian to explain it. But the actual scene they play is in Swedish, and seems to be about Alicia murdering their dog. I’ll try to find the full episode for us, and then make screen captures. If any one can help us translate the Norwegian parts, please get in touch.
Source | Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander is slated to portray the video game favorite Lara Croft in an emotional origin “Tomb Raider” movie coming this 2018. Producer Graham King reveals that this film will be a fun and exciting project because of the great writing, cast, crew and director. When the movie comes out, it will be almost two decades since the previous Lara Croft movie, which starred Angelina Jolie.
Vikander (The Danish Girl, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) will play a younger Lara Croft who is searching for her father. The setting of the story will take fans back to the very first Tomb Raider movies and games. Nostalgia will play a big part of the project. King stated in his interview with HeyUGuys that the movie is going to be a “back to the roots story.”
News Everyday confirms that the film will be released in the US on March 16, 2018. This will finally put to rest many fans who were wondering which version of Croft is better on the big screen. While Vikander and Jolie certainly have their own strengths and styles, we cannot give a verdict until we see it ourselves.
In the meantime, fans of the original video game are more excited than ever. In addition to the coming movies, the 20th anniversary of the “Rise of the Tomb Raider” game is being celebrated with some major updates. There are additional skins and outfits, but the biggest bonus comes in the form of new levels and challenges.
Jason Bourne was released on digital HD earlier this week. I was able to get my own copy and have made blu-ray quality screen captures from the film, in which Alicia appears as Heather Lee. Make sure to check out the movie on itunes and amazon, as the movie will be available on blu-ray and DVD on November 28th.
Alicia attended the European premiere of The Light Between Oceans yesterday evening, along with Michael Fassbender and director Derek Cianfrance. She was wearing a gorgeous custom Louis Vuitton gown. If you live in the UK, don’t forget that the film is slated for release on November 1. High-quality images of the premiere have been added to our gallery – thank you Neide (samclaflin.org) from sending most of these our way.
Yesterday, Alicia attended the BFI London Film Festival Awards as part of the 60th BFI London Film Festival. She was wearing, as usual, a gorgeous white gown by Louis Vuitton. High-quality pictures are now available in our gallery – thank you Boby (nyle-dimarco.org) for sending these our way!
