We are SO ready to see Alicia Vikander kick some serious ass!
On Thursday The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the new Lara Croft has finally been chosen! We've been eagerly waiting to learn who would be following in Angelina Jolie's fierce footsteps as the English archaeologist, and now that wait is officially over!
The Ex Machina star will be taking over the role in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot!
We recently learned that Daisy Ridley was up for the part as well, and while we think the Star Wars: The Force Awakens lead would have done a great job, we're also very glad to see the 27-year-old take on the action-adventure genre!
The video game-inspired project will be helmed by Warner Bros. and MGM, with Roar Uthaug calling the shots as director.
What do U think of Alicia playing such a fierce female? Let us know in the comments!
