Lara Croft will be returning to theaters March 16th next year in the new reboot of Tomb Raider! The feature star playing as Lara Croft will be Alicia VikanderTomb Raider also stars Dominic West, Walton Goggins as well as Daniel Wu.

Previous iterations of Lara Croft on the big screen was played by Angelina Jolie. Vikander spoke about Angelina Jolie’s portrayal of Lara Croft as “fierce, tough, curious, having highly intelligent traits and well experienced.” However, Vikander’s portrayal of Lara Croft is more in-line with recent Tomb Raider (2013) and Rise of Tomb Raider (2015) games, featuring an inexperienced Lara Croft. The movie director, Roar Uthaug, confirms to this notion stating that he wants to make Lara more human and the audience will be able to relate to her inexperience. The movie itself however, is not tied to any of the game’s internal story line.
