First Look At Alicia Vikander In Tomb Raider Set Pics

The newest chapter in the Lara Croft on-screen story will be an origin story, with Vikander's Croft taking on her first archaeological adventure in the footsteps of her father Lord Richard, played by Dominic West.

"Into the Badlands" star Daniel Wu signed on for "Tomb Raider" last month to play Lu Ren, a ship captain and ally to Croft. She also had performed into several stunts on top of a wooden bar on the South African set for the film, Daily Mail reported.

Tomb Raider has remained as one of the most popular gaming franchises for an impressive length of time.

The first photos have been revealed of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider film reboot. She delivered stellar performances in films like Ex Machina and The Danish Girl, the latter won her the Oscar for Best Actress in Supporting Role.

As we reported, Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley was previously in talks to star in the film. "She made an icon of that character, of course".

If "Tomb Raider" is our new "Raiders of the Lost Ark", that makes Vikander our new Indiana Jones.

While audiences are going to have to wait a while to the film to actually come out, at least it looks like we'll be updated periodically on the progress of the movie. Um, it will probably involve a sea voyage.

In December, Variety reported that Goggins was finalizing negotiations to jump onboard the 2018 Tomb Raider reboot movie as the villain.

Nothing says "Monday magic" quite like the release of the first batch of badass set photos of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft.
