Ever since the news dropped that actress Alicia Vikander would play Lara Croft in next year’s Tomb Raider, I’ve been intrigued. Vikander seems like someone who can embody the role nicely, hopefully evoking more dynamic emotion than Angelina Jolie’s take on Croft.
Entertainment Weekly gave us yet another look at Vikander. This time, it’s not just posing: She’s battered and bruised and in a heap of trouble, it seems, while hanging off a cliff.
The film has another promising gem, actor Walton Goggins as Mathias Vogel. I’ve loved Goggins since Justified, so I believe he’ll play nicely with Vikander on-screen.
Tomb Raider is expected to release March 16, 2018 and is directed by Mathias Vogel.
