“It’s changing, what we as a society find sexy. People were like, ‘What? You don’t want [Lara Croft] to be sexy?’ I was like, no! I want her to be sexy, but also fierce, cool, witty, funny. I want her to be someone you want to hang out with both as a woman and as a man. This is more up to date with what we find sexy,” says Alicia Vikander in Aisling Keenan’s interview with the Oscar-winning star in the March issue of IMAGE Magazine, on shelves now.

Judging by Tomb Raider’s trailer below, Vikander’s Lara Croft is everything the Swedish actress promises, and then some.

About the film
Vikander plays the original fearless gaming icon Lara Croft – the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Leaving everything she knows behind, Lara goes in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who – against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit – must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name “tomb raider”.

From Warner Bros Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero.

The film stars Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar-winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner. The executive producers are Patrick McCormick, Denis O’Sullivan and Noah Hughes.

Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster, 300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained), Daniel Wu (AMC’s Into the Badlands) and Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient).

Uthaug directed from a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons, story by Evan Daugherty and Robertson-Dworet. The director’s behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography George Richmond (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation); production designer Gary Freeman (Maleficent); Oscar-nominated editor Stuart Baird (Skyfall, Gorillas in the Mist) and editor Michael Tronick (Suicide Squad); Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and costume designer Timothy A Wonsik (assistant costume designer, Free State of Jones, Iron Man 3). The music is by Tom Holkenborg (Mad Max: Fury Road).
