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.

On behalf of the site and the fans, we would like to wish Alicia Vikander a very happy 28th birthday. We hope she’s spending a most wonderful day with her loved ones – and we all look forward to seeing her projects in the upcoming year. Happy Birthday Alicia!
Our girl continues to be a desired cover girl for magazines, and is currently covering the Winter 2016 issue of Porter Magazine! She was photographed by Ryan McGinley, in a photoshoot styled very differently from what she has done in the past. The spread is getting both praise and critique by fashion lovers, and while it might not be my personal favorite Alicia cover either, she looks so amazing in the photoshoot! It’s a must check-out; enjoy the pretty!
We hope to have hiqh quality scans with time, but for now, make sure to purchase your very own copy of the magazine! You can buy it online at this page.
Alicia to Porter:
On her relationship with Michael Fassbender and working with him on The Light Between Oceans: “We’ve never hidden the fact that we’re a couple… He’s extremely hardworking. He was like, ‘Give me something new! I just need a new idea. I need to do it differently.’ I just thought that was cool. Because that was what I was trying to do, too. To push each other and come up with new ideas each time.”
On the Brexit vote: “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I am European. I grew up in a small country. Without it, I would not be where I am right now in my career – I wouldn’t have been able to live with my three girlfriends in London. As a foreigner, I probably wouldn’t have been cast in Anna Karenina if they’d had to pay for a working visa. I hope here in America that it opens people’s eyes that you can’t just let things happen. You need to get involved.”
On working with women: “I can count on my hands the scenes I’ve done with women.” [She recalls acting in a scene with Holliday Grainger for the upcoming Tulip Fever.] “At the end, I was like, ‘That was fun.’ And then I kind of looked up at her and we talked about it. ‘Something’s different. What is it?’ And I realized that I hadn’t had a proper two-page scene with another woman, just playing off each other.”
