Lara Croft's recent video game exploits help explain the new movie's ending — and provide clues to what's to come in the "Tomb Raider" franchise.
Angela Jolie's 2001 debut as the titular heroine in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" wasn't without controversy. We look back at her fight for the role and more behind-the-scenes drama.
The Oscar winner's physical suitability for the role of the (traditionally buxom) Lara Croft in "Tomb Raider" has now come under sexist attack. The internet is most definitely not letting that slide.
When she was 8 years old, "Tomb Raider" star Alicia Vikander won a lip sync battle on a popular Swedish kids' show.
Alicia Vikander admits she’s always been “petite.” The Swedish Oscar winner (The Danish Girl) and former ballet dancer stands 5-foot-5 and has always had a featherweight frame. Vikander, 29, added about 12 pounds of muscle to play the video-game-turned-action-movie heroine in the new reboot of Tomb Raider (a role previously played on the big screen by Angelina Jolie in 2001 and 2003). “I lifted weights, probably for the first time in my life, to be able to put on that muscle,” Vikander told Yahoo Entertainment at the film’s Los Angeles press day (watch above).
With the Academy Awards just around the corner, we couldn't help but reminisce about the stars who used their plus-one to take their mothers to the star-studded event.

Alicia Vikander is parlaying her Best Supporting Actress Oscar win for The Danish Girl into a blockbuster headlining role in next year’s Tomb Raider, which will see her stepping into the boots of adventurer extraordinaire Lara Croft. While it’ll be completely divorced from the two prior films featuring the character — the Angelina Jolie-starring Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) — this latest adaptation, from Norwegian director Roar Uthaug (the man responsible for last year’s stellar disaster-movie import The Wave), will be hewing closely to its recently rebooted video game source material.
To do Walton Goggins’ enthusiasm at being cast in the Alicia Vikander-led Tomb Raider reboot justice, you should really hear him say, “I’ve got my d–n Tomb Raider saddlebag! I am ready to get lost in a godd–n tomb!” Then again, if you’ve ever watched the Emmy-nominated actor in FX’s Justified or Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, you probably can. Last week, news broke that Goggins will play the antagonist in the film helmed by Norwegian director Roar Uthaug (The Wave). “This director is an extraordinarily talented filmmaker, and Alicia Vikander I’ve met a few times, we have some friends in common, but I just think she’s one of the greatest contributions to any generation of actors, man.
The most iconic female video-game character ever is having a birthday. Tomb Raider‘s Lara Croft, the puzzle-solving, weapons-wielding archeologist with an uncanny knack for falling into supernatural adventures, turns 20 this year.

Meanwhile, Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander, who grew up a fan of the game, will be suiting up for a film reboot arriving in 2018.
