It won’t be easy to do the role when the bars are set high, especially, when the first two part contains a fine actress like Angelina Jolie, but we have full hope that she would justify her role.
In early images of latest reboot, Vikander looks somewhat alike the character’s image, pulling on some cargo pants with rusted tank top, resembling of the time when developer, Crystal Dynamics decided to reboot the video games with a whole new title, Tomb Raider.
About the movie, Vanity Fair, discloses the reboot would take place after a long time since the mysterious disappearance of her father and while solving the mystery, she ends up in a tomb on a n island near Japan.

Director, Roar Uthaug, told GQ that, the movie will introduce Lara as a young lass who is yet to achieve her place and get to know about what’s her call from this world. It portrays the struggles and hardship she faces in becoming something.
When attacked by facts like films based on video games aren’t quite Amazing, Uthaug comes with a contradiction that it would be something audience has never experienced before. The movie would be more realistic. Lara would be a role model but not like one of those Super girl having super powers which would give the movie a reality check.
Reaction form people out there is quite good, but few people have started comparing Vikander’s attire with that to Karen Gillian’s role in upcoming reboot in Jumanji.

While Lara Croft is allegedly the hottest video game character, featuring Alicia would be a real crowd magnet.
Wait, we aren’t done yet, Walton Goggins has been cast as the bad-ass villain, so get ready for some heartthrob actions. Vikander is equally excited for her new role as Lara represents a strong personality.
Tomb Raider will hit the theaters in March 16, 2018.
Aah! That is a hell of a time period!
