We have to admit that when it comes to video games being adapted into movies, we are never a fan of the projects and, while the Resident Evil movies have been the only franchise to really prove successful on the big screen, we have not been blown away by those films either, so it is interesting to see whether any of the new, upcoming video game movies can buck that trend.
While we were quite excited when it was announced that a new Tomb Raider movie was getting made, we have to admit that we were less excited when it was announced that actress Alicia Vikander had been cast in the role as Lara Croft, along with millions of other disappointed fans. However, the first pictures of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider have been released and it seems that they have impressed the fans.
One fan admitted, "I'm not gonna lie, hated the casting for Tomb Raider but gotta admit that seeing these new pictures of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft has done a lot to win me over. Actually excited for the film now." Meanwhile, another added, "Who actually knew that Alicia Vikander would look perfect as Lara Croft. Very impressed indeed."
We have also been impressed by the pictures and cannot wait to see what the new Tomb Raider movie actually has to offer on the big screen and just what Alicia Vikander will bring to the role of Lara Croft. Tomb Raider is directed by Roar Uthaug and will open on March 16, 2018 in both the US and the UK.
