Stunning Alicia Vikander is the new Lara Croft

Oscar award winning Swedish actress Alicia Vikander is the new face of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

This version of Lara comes with a new backstory, and a new motivation for her adventures: seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes.

Alicia Vikander plays Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie.

Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.
