Alicia Vikander has been cast as the new cinematic Lara Croft. I have not seen her Oscar-winning performance in The Danish Girl, but I though she did a fine job in Ex Machina. Still, that role is quite different from the hero of Tomb Raider and she seems pretty petit for an action star. Hopefully she will undergo enough physical preparation for her to provide a convincing depiction of the video game icon.
