The Alicia Vikander Tomb Raider reboot is nigh, and will show us who Lara Croft was before she became the raider of tombs immortalized in like a billion video games. As part of their Comic Con preview, Entertainment Weekly released a new image of Vikander as Croft, hanging on to a cliff for dear life, as you do.
That Tomb Raider reboot is chugging right along after justifying its existence by casting Walton Goggins as the villain. Obviously the agents know what they’re doing because that casting is perfect, as is Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft herself. Today, the studio announced a new addition, as Daniel Wu has officially joined the cast.
Of the many reboots in the works, the new Tomb Raider movie is one of the more interesting projects currently in development — and one of the few with some actual potential. Starring Ex Machina’s Alicia Vikander and directed by The Wave’s Roar Uthaug (who has the coolest name ever), Tomb Raider seems like the rare reboot that might actually be a good idea. And we won’t have to wait too long to find out if that’s the case, as Warner Bros. has officially set a release date.
