RAIDIN' DIRTY: Here's Your 1st Look At Alicia Vikander As Lara Croft

Katie RamirezFeb 08, 2017

With filming on the new Tomb Raider movie now underway, it was only a matter of time before we got a first look at Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) in the iconic role of Lara Croft. Right now, all that matters is that Vikander looks like she is going to be kicking serious butt and she's going to look (realistically) fantastic doing it.

Academy Award-winning actor Alicia Vikander's first pictures as adventure heroine Lara Croft have hit the internet. Anyway, do you think that Alicia Vikander makes a good looking Lara Croft or do you miss Angelina Jolie?

Check out the Tomb Raider set photos below. The new film will follow two previous Tomb Raider movies and production has officially started for the film.

The Swedish actress is playing Lara Croft in a reboot of the film series based on the video game of the same name. Some were for her, others were against her, but the decision has been set - she is Lara Croft.

Variety reports that Daniel Wu (Into the Badlands) has been cast in the Tomb Raider reboot alongside Vikander. Dominic West and Walton Goggins also star.

The images, which feature Vikander doing her own stunts, suspended from a cable, come shortly after Director Roar Uthaug shared a photo from the first day of filming.

The film already has a release date set, which is March 16, 2018.

Now we have our first glimpse at what Vikander actually looks like in the role.
