Here's What Alicia Vikander Looks Like As Lara Croft In The Upcoming Tomb Raider Movie

Lara Croft underwent the reboot treatment for the Tomb Raider video game series back in 2013, and now it's time for the iconic heroine to make her way back to the big screen as well.

The last Tomb Raider film, released in 2003, starred Angelina Jolie as the globe-trotting treasure hunter. Alicia Vikander, an Oscar-winning actress known for her roles as Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl and Ava in Ex Machina, steps into the adventurer's shoes in these new photos from the movie reboot that Vanity Fair managed to snag. You can check out the rest of the photos in Vanity Fair's piece here.

The upcoming Tomb Raider takes its cues from the video game reboot of the same title, following the first adventures of a younger, more vulnerable Lara Croft who hasn't yet earned the title of tomb raider.

Alamo Drafthouse Hosting 'Inspirations Of Prey' Film Series

Arkane Studios' upcoming sci-fi game Prey is weird in all the right ways, with bizarre aliens, manipulated reality, and the oft-publicized ability to transform into a coffee cup (or teapot, or toilet paper). It wasn't developed in a vacuum, of course, and publisher Bethesda is working with Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas to set up a mini sci-fi film festival to screen some of the films that inspired the game's creation.

Starting April 4 through April 27, the theater chain will be screening four movies: MOON, Starship Troopers, Total Recall, and The Matrix at theaters nationwide. You can watch them a la carte, or buy tickets for four screenings and get an exclusive Prey poster. Take a look at the official site for locations and more information on the screenings.

Bethesda is bringing the game along to special events at its Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York screenings, where players can check out the game and enter to win a special Prey-themed PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. You can RSVP to those free events here.
