If you say Tomb Raider peoples minds automatically Angelina Jolie.
She owned that character for years, but now it’s time for someone else to have a go at the role. Alicia Vikander has stepped up to the portrayal as Lara Croft, but would she be ready for the stress that an action film can do to you?
The answer after watching this behind the scenes will be a yes. In fact, it should be a hell yes. The girl’s abs have abs. In the above video Alicia tells us why she was looking forward to being in an action adventure, Trainer Magnus Lygdback (coolest name for a trainer ever) talks about and shows us the prep they had to put Alicia through, Director Roar Uthaug (best name for an action film director) explains how this is a different Lara than what we’re used to, Daniel Wu talks about how much Alicia has impressed her, Walton Goggins goes into Alicia’s passion for storytelling, and then Alicia comes back and gives us her hopes for audiences.
