In essence, Alicia Vikander’s version of Lara Croft in this new film does look super cool! Gini, yes. When it comes to Alicia Amanda Vikander, I don’t want to argue. Want to look like anything, he must look cool. That’s enough. Admit it. Save your argument.
In addition, in the latest Tomb Raider poster released in February 2018, there is also a wound on Lara Croft’s right cheek. The look in her eyes, those beautiful ones, was cold. Meanwhile, he was holding an ax in his hand.
Unlike Angelina Jolie’s version, which is armed with sophisticated weapons, such as two pistols that always hang on her right and left thighs, Alicia Vikander’s version of Lara Croft, in this latest Tomb Raider film, is armed with only a bow and an ax. Two new original weapons appeared in the 2013 video game Tomb Raider.
Another most striking difference, Alicia Vikander’s version of Lara Croft also looks more realistic. The most obvious is the size of her chest. This new version of Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider movie looks slimmer and more athletic. It’s no longer as cheesy as Angelina Jolie’s version of Lara Croft used to be. The size of the 36C bra. In fact, actor Dominic West even declared this film “less boobs, more fighting“. Alias will not indulge in cleavage and show more action scenes.
The new Lara Croft figure in the rebooted version of Tomb Raider is indeed described as very brave, tough, always curious, and very smart. However, he was inexperienced. Still green. Never been on an adventure. And not yet a Tomb Raider.
Btw, being under the shadow of actress like Angelina Jolie, as Lara Croft, is not easy. However, when interviewed, Alicia Vikander repeatedly emphasized that her version of the Tomb Raider film was different from the version of Brad Pitt’s ex-wife. He was ready to erase all fond memories of the fans about Angie’s version of Lara Croft.
When she first played Lara Croft in 2001, Angelina Jolie was only 26 years old. Meanwhile, currently, Alicia Vikander is a little older. Alias is 29 years old. However, uniquely, both Angie and Alicia both got the role of Lara Croft a year after winning the Academy Awards in the Best Supporting Actress category. Jolie won an Oscar for the film Girl, Interrupted (1999), while Vikander received the same award for his good acting in the film The Danish Girl (2015).
To explore the role of Lara Croft first, Angelina Jolie trained to use rifles and weapons with Britain’s elite troops: the Special Air Service (SAS). In addition, Jon Voight’s daughter is also studying yoga and kickboxing.
Meanwhile, Alicia Vikander is shooting Tomb Raider in South Africa without a stunt double. The crew threw him into the river about 50 times with his hands tied. Michael Fassbender’s wife does not need to act. And just need to react. Because he was completely submerged in the water!
In addition, Alicia Vikander also had to increase her body muscle mass up to 6 kg. Because, his body is quite small. Therefore, in order to shape her physique to become more muscular, the former ballerina worked hard in the gym.
