I have just updated our gallery with one high-quality digital scan of the October issue of Empire Magazine, which has a feature on the upcoming “Tomb Raider“. Many thanks to my friend Lora (daisy-ridley.net) for sending these my way.
Yesterday (August 13), Alicia attended the VIP Preview Screening of “Tulip Fever”, which was held at the Soho Hotel in London. High-quality images have been added to our gallery. Enjoy!
Hello Alicia fans! We’re finally getting close to the premiere of “Tulip Fever” (coming to theaters on August 25!), and our gallery has been updated with 20 beautiful new production stills from the film. I’m so excited for this, and we’ll hopefully have a lot of new content this month for the premiere. Stay tuned here at Alicia Vikander Online!
ELLE.com – In the fashion world, September is all about power. Who better to exemplify that than cover star Alicia Vikander, an actress who’s midtransition from indie favorite to blockbuster-anchoring force?
After shooting onto Hollywood’s radar just a few years ago, the incomparably talented, laser-focused Vikander has already snagged an Oscar, slayed Michael Fassbender, and dominated the indie drama beat.
Her latest period film, Tulip Fever was actually shot three years ago—before The Danish Girl and before Vikander and Fassbender met. Harvey Weinstein presented director Justin Chadwick (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) with the Tulip Fever script and invited him to cast the film; after a short meeting with Vikander, Chadwick says, “I went back and told Harvey that we’d found our star. We built the film around Alicia.”
Here, a sneak peek of Vikander’s interview ahead of the September issue release:
On feeling empowered by the action scenes in her upcoming Tomb Raider reboot: “I love big popcorn movies. I’ve never done action scenes on this level – not even close. It feels like I’m back to dancing – the training, the intensity. You need to be aware of your movement up in the wires and how your body works. I’ve never been able to lift my own weight, and the day when you have that capacity, it’s pretty empowering!”
The sad truth about finding new, challenging roles: “[Complex roles such as that in Hotel] are actually hard to find, which is sad. It’s still—women are written safe.”
Hello Alicia fans! After a very slow year event-wise (due to Alicia being busy filming Tomb Raider), she is making it up to us by attending 3 events in just a short span of days! Our girl has been photographed at three different Bvlgari events in Venice, looking as stunning as always. The first two parties were held at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia, and the third event was for the Bvlgari Puo Up Store Ribbon Cutting At The Galeries. She was joined by Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin, as well as Bulgari brand ambassador Lilly zu sayn Wittgenstein! For our fashion interested visitors, Alicia was wearing a Prabal Gurung dress on June 29, and a Marchesa Notte dress on the 30th. Both days she accessorized with Bulgari jewelry.
Hello Alicia fans! News are slow these days, as Alicia is probably enjoying some time off after completing Tomb Raider. To make up for the lack of updates, we have updated our photo gallery with many gorgeous new additions! They’re all from different press conferences, photocalls and photoshoots Alicia has done the recent years – and the best part, they’re all in gorgeous high quality. Some are brand new to our site, while others are additional photos from appearances we had from before. We hope you’ll like them!
VANITY FAIR – Alicia Vikander had a major breakout year in 2015, playing both a mysterious (and eventually vengeful) robot in Ex Machina as well as a devoted wife and artist in The Danish Girl. It was the latter role that won her the Oscar and could have minted an entire career in thoughtful period dramas. Instead, for her follow-up, Vikander is going the action-heroine route, donning the iconic tank top and cargo pants of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
In these first-look images, see Vikander take on the role made famous first in the video-game series and then in the two films starring Angelina Jolie. But this version of Lara comes with a new backstory, and a new motivation for her adventures: seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes. Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.
As the official plot description puts it, “Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.”
“When I was asked to take on this role I got really excited—Lara Croft is a truly iconic character,“ Vikander told Vanity Fair via e-mail. “I think people can identify with her for lots of different reasons, but for me I very much see her as a model for many young women. She’s trying to carve out her place in the world and connect her future with her past. She also has a fantastic mix of traits—tough, smart, vulnerable, plus she’s kick ass! She is also uniquely different to other characters I have taken on previously. It’s a lot of fun trying to get into Lara’s head and the challenge of getting to grips with such a physical role is an element of this project that I find an absolute thrill.”
Producer Graham King, who won an Oscar as producer of The Departed, adds: “Alicia Vikander brings tremendous depth and vulnerability to this character, which is every bit as important as Lara Croft’s fierce strength, determination, and physicality. Our film takes Lara from her early origins, to the physical and emotional challenges through which she ultimately becomes the Tomb Raider. It’s a complex character, requiring a range of elements and Alicia brings all of that together brilliantly in her portrayal.”
Tomb Raider, directed by Roar Uthaug and co-starring Dominic West, Walton Goggins, and Daniel Wu, comes to theaters on March 16, 2018.
