Yesterday, Alicia visited IGN Live to promote Tomb Raider and show the new trailer! You can catch her full segment below. They chatted about the brand new trailer (which we posted yesterday – make sure to scroll down and check it out if you haven’t seen it yet), how she was a fan of the games when they first came out, and Alicia answered questions sent in by fans.
Hello Alicia fans! Last night, Alicia was a guest on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” to promote ‘Tomb Raider’ – and premiere the official trailer! She was there with Luke Wilson and Zach Woods, and they talked about celebrity crushes, how Alicia got herself locked out of her apartment once and their upcoming projects. I have added HD screen captures from the episode to our gallery, and you can check out some video clips below –
Hello Alicia fans – It’s finally here!! The first official trailer for “Tomb Raider” was released this morning, and it looks amazing. I’ll just let it speak for itself – you can now check it out below. Warner Bros. also released a great new featurette titled “Becoming Lara Croft”, where we get an exclusive inside look to the preparations Alicia did for the role. I especially love the featurette, as it shows how extremely hard Alicia worked on this film – and I love what the rest of the cast and crew have to say about her. I am so proud of her!
I’ve been watching both clips on repeat all morning, so make sure to check them out. I have also updated our gallery with HD screen captures from both clips – links and previews below.
Yesterday, the first official “Tomb Raider” poster and teaser trailer were released online at last! It’s been getting a lot of buzz on social media, and the first official trailer will be released later today. Check out the teaser below, and make sure to head over to our gallery to check out the HQ poster. We’ll have a lot of updates tonight, so stay tuned…
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.
Exciting news! Alicia will be on the September issue of Vanity Fair’s magazine cover! Her cover, as well as some stunning images from her photoshoot, have been added to our gallery. You can read her article below; it’s a long one, but definitely worth a read.
At the bottom of the post, you can also watch a video of Alicia calling random Swedes, asking questions such as “does Swedish people really go to IKEA” and whether they know the actress Alicia Vikander or not. It’s a cute and funny clip, so make sure you check it out!
How Alicia Vikander Unleashed Her Inner Superstar
During her banner year (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl, etc.) and Academy Award–winning leap to stardom, the Swedish actress also found love with Michael Fassbender, on the set of next month’s The Light Between Oceans. Think it was luck? Think again. The 27-year-old is just warming up.
It’s unintentional, mind you, but Alicia Vikander does the Luckiest Girl Alive thing effortlessly. Even doing an interview by Skype—her preferred mode of communication with far-flung friends these days—can’t conceal it. It’s 10 A.M. in Sydney, Australia, and she’s puttering around the house of her boyfriend, actor Michael Fassbender. (He’s decamped there to shoot Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. She’s on a two-week holiday between film sets.) Her hair has that just-out-of-the-shower look. She’s wearing a light-blue button-down shirt that, even if it isn’t her boyfriend’s, looks like it should be. She’s making the kind of breakfast that elegant, health-conscious European women eat: a mix of muesli and yogurt, accompanied by a beverage of fresh-squeezed lemon juice mixed with apple-cider vinegar that some holistic-minded Australian friends are crazy about. “It’s apparently very good for you, but it’s disgusting!” says Vikander. Unlike the typical person, whose face over Skype looks as if he or she were staring into a doorknob, Vikander looks as exquisite and glowing as ever.
This past year has been her year, as they say—the 27-year-old Swedish actress, who now lives in London, shot from relative obscurity to international superstardom with four major films in just 12 months—Testament of Youth, Ex Machina, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and The Danish Girl—the kind of feat that Jessica Chastain accomplished a couple of years ago. Vikander was the “It girl” of this past awards season, earning a best-actress Golden Globe nomination for her role as an intensely alluring robot in Ex Machina and winning the Oscar for best supporting actress in The Danish Girl, as Gerda Wegener, the wild and determined wife of one of the earliest men to undergo gender-confirmation surgery, played by Eddie Redmayne. She’s both a muse to modern fashion designers—a year ago she became the new face of Louis Vuitton—and a dream for costume designers doing lush period dramas. No one has worn romantic, charming period frocks with such conviction since Helena Bonham Carter, as Lucy Honeychurch, frolicked in the grass in A Room with a View.
Alicia only just wrapped up her “Jason Bourne” promotion tour across the globe, and she’s already onto her next! “The Light Between Oceans” promotion have now began, and Alicia and her boyfriend Michael Fassbender have recently done a string of various interviews. You can check out two of their video interviews below; the first is with E! Live From The Red Carpet, and the second with Buzzfeed Entertainment.
Alicia appeared on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, and you can now watch a video from her appearance below! HQ Photos will be added to our gallery later.
