Entertainment Weekly has released a new photo and tidbits about the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. Vikander – who plays the titular role – spoke exclusively with EW on the upcoming film and how Lara will be.
“She has all the fierce, tough, curious, intelligent traits, but we’ve stripped away all of her experience. She hasn’t gone on an adventure just yet. She thought he was a stuck up businessperson living in the modern youth culture of suburban London, but then this whole box of information. This is the beginning.”
Vikander wasn’t a stranger to the stunt work involving the film, telling EW about the grueling process she had to go through for some of the film.
“Just like in The Wave, we have a lot of water sequences, I spent my last two days of shooting in a tank and that was my 16th total day being fully drenched or submerged in the water…For one action scene, we used the London venue for Olympic rafting. They threw me down that river — with my hands tied — about 50 times. I didn’t need to act, just react!”
The new Tomb Raider is set to be released in March of 2018. Check out the new teaser photo below!
