Alicia Vikander Transforms Into Lara Croft for First ‘Tomb Raider’ Trailer (Video)

22 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Alicia Vikander is following in her father’s footsteps — literally — in the first full trailer for the upcoming “Tomb Raider” movie. Taking on the role of Lara Croft originally played by Angelina Jolie, the Swedish actress proves both her action and her acting chops in the two-minute, nine seconds teaser released Tuesday night. “If you’re listening to this, I must be dead,” her dad (played by Dominic West) says in a personal video message. “I found something, a tomb called the Mother of Death. “If Trinity succeeds, our world is in danger,” he adds. Watch the video above.   »

The First Footage of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider Reboot Is Here

Tomorrow - watch the trailer for #TombRaider, in theaters March 2018. pic.twitter.com/Lt5R7KVCkG - Tomb Raider (@TombRaiderMovie) September 18, 2017 If you were worried about Alicia Vikander being able to fill Angelina Jolie's cargo pants in the Tomb Raider reboot, worry no more. In the brief first look at the 28-year-old Oscar winner as the titular raider of tombs, Lara Croft, Vikander seems to be holding her own as she dives off cliffs into a choppy river and dramatically slides under razor-sharp booby traps. While that might be the same song and dance we got with Jolie in the first two films, Lara's backstory is getting an update. The action film, which isn't due out until March 16, sees Lara as a 21-year-old, fiercely independent bike courier living in London on her own seven years after the disappearance of her eccentric adventurer father. She sets out to solve the mystery of his death, »

[Updated] A Great Adventure Unfolds In The First Full Trailer For Warner’s Tomb Raider Movie

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: The Instagram teaser has since been pulled offline, but we’ll update this post the moment IGN premieres Tomb Raider‘s first full trailer later this evening.

Original story: With her legendary skill set and that seemingly insatiable taste for adventure, Lara Croft ranks among the best video game characters in history. Since her debut in ’96, the pixelated heroine has inspired countless titles and two full-blown feature films, both of which were headed up by Angelina Jolie.

But now, it’s time for a new Tomb Raider to enter the fold. Alicia Vikander, star of The Danish Girl and Ex Machina, takes point as Miss Croft, who embarks on a journey to find her missing father – or what’s left of him. It’s a quest that leads our titular character all the way to a far-flung island off the coast of Japan, and we imagine it’s here »

‘Tomb Raider’ First Trailer: Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft and She’s Ready to Be An Action Star

8 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Lara Croft just keeps attracting Best Supporting Actress Oscar winners. Not soon after winning for “Girl, Interrupted,” Angelina Jolie signed on to play the globe-trotting hero in the first film adaptation of the popular video game series. Now it’s Alicia Vikander’s turn. The actress has appeared in big budget fare like “Jason Bourne” since winning the Oscar for “The Danish Girl,” but playing Lara Croft will be her first major headliner performance.

Tomb Raider” is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”) and is the first Lara Croft big screen adventure since “The Cradle of Life” in 2003. Vikander plays a 21-year-old Croft, who is a bike courier in London investigating her father’s disappearance from seven years ago. Her search takes her to his last know location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.

Vikander recently spoke about making the role her own to Entertainment Weekly. »

Rithy Panh 101: How the ‘First They Killed My Father’ Producer Put Cambodian Cinema on the Map

9 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editors Note: This article is presented in partnership with Netflix’s original film “First They Killed My Father” – now streaming on Netflix and in select theaters.]

“First They Killed My Father” producer Rithy Panh is arguably the most influential Cambodian director in history. A survivor of the Khmer Rouge who escaped to Thailand in 1979, Panh found his footing as a filmmaker while living in Paris before returning to his native country 10 years later. Over the past 27 years, his work has largely taken a biographical focus, as he confronts the trauma of his family’s struggles from a number of cinematic perspectives. Viewed in full, his filmography tells the modern story of the Cambodian people, from their struggles to survive against an oppressive regime to the reverberations of those experiences in modern times. 

Panh has always taken a personal approach to his filmmaking. His first widely acclaimed project, 1994’s “Rice of People,” blends professional and amateur performers in the spare tale of an impoverished family attempting to make ends meet in a world still reeling from the horrors of the past. »

Samuel Kai is a J. Crew kid!

The 8½-year-old son of Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts looked every bit his dad’s adorable mini-me (with a side of Mom’s signature blond hair) as he attended Sunday’s Emmy Awards alongside the six-time-nominated Ray Donovan actor.

For the star-studded evening, the little guy wore a tux and bow tie to match Schreiber, along with J. Crew’s Kids’ Classic Wing Tips shoes in black, which retail for $118.

Alicia Vikander Debuts as Lara Croft in First Tomb Raider Poster; First Trailer Debuts Tomorrow

18 September 2017 2:42 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Alicia Vikander is channeling her inner Tomb Raider in the first poster for the rebooted film.  Except, it channels more of the newer games than the older versions.

Old or new, Tomb Raider will forever hold a place in video game history as one of the most iconic games ever made.  They broke barriers when they originally came out and continued to astound as time went on.  The current iterations of the franchise find Lara Croft in an almost Uncharted-like story and format.  With today's first poster reveal, it appears that's the direction Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer seems to be going as well.

Just as they did with Angelina Jolie's version, WB & MGM look to be taking inspiration from the games that started it all.  Unlike Jolie, who used the original, Alicia Vikander gets the distinction of using the image from the rebooted games.  What's more, the synopsis seems to match that. »

Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father” Chosen to Represent Cambodia at Oscars

18 September 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“First They Killed My Father”: Tiff

Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father” is officially an Oscar contender. The drama has been chosen to represent Cambodia at the 2018 Academy Awards in the foreign-language category, Variety reports.

An adaptation of human rights activist Loung Ung’s 2000 non-fiction book, the drama follows a five-year-old girl’s experience of the Khmer Rouge’s reign of terror. Newcomer Sareum Srey Moch stars.

“First They Killed My Father” made its North American premiere at Telluride earlier this month, and also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film is earning Jolie’s best reviews as a director and is being warmly received by audiences. She co-wrote the script with Ung.

In 2011 Jolie made her feature narrative directorial debut with “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” a romance set during the Bosnian War. The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Golden Globes. Her other directing credits include “Unbroken” and “By the Sea.”

Jolie, who holds dual U.S. and Cambodian nationality, won an Oscar in 2000 for her role in “Girl, Interrupted.” She also received an Academy Award in 2014 for her humanitarian work.

Other women-directed films in the foreign-language race include Ildikó Enyedi’s “On Body and Soul,” an unconventional romantic drama, Annemarie Jacir’s “Wajib,” a dramedy about a father and his estranged son, and Agnieszka Holland’s “Spoor,” a crime drama about a woman seeking revenge after hunters kill her dog.

Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father” Chosen to Represent Cambodia at Oscars was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Angelina Jolie Still Breaks the Rules: Why ‘First They Killed My Father’ is the Movie No Studio Would Make

18 September 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Angelina Jolie is basking in a standing ovation at Telluride after the first screening of “First They Killed My Father.” It’s the film she wanted to make: Based on the 2000 memoir of Loung Ung, who was five when the Khmer Rouge forced her family into work camps, it required a $24 million budget, a 60-day shoot, a two-hour, 16-minute cut. The only place she pitched the film is the only one who would let her make it: Netflix.

“She had a very specific view of the story she wanted to tell,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “It’s very traditional. It’s just as resource-intense to make a small film as a big film, where there isn’t much infrastructure in Cambodia. It would have been difficult to get made anywhere, with all local talent. It all pays off on the screen.”

Cambodia Picks Angelina Jolie’s ‘First They Killed My Father’ as Oscar Contender

18 September 2017 2:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father” has been picked to represent Cambodia as the Southeast Asian nation’s contender in the foreign-language Oscar category.

The film, an adaptation of Loung Ung’s survivor tale, is a drama set during the brutal Khmer Rouge era. It had its premiere last month at the Telluride film festival, where it received largely positive coverage.

The awards selection announcement was made by the Cambodian Oscar Selection Committee.

Jolie holds dual U.S. and Cambodian nationality and has adopted a Cambodia-born son. She was awarded Cambodian citizenship in 2005 in recognition of her environmental protection role.

The film was financed by streaming giant Netflix, but was last week confirmed as being set for a small theatrical run in North America. That could make it eligible for awards contention in other categories as well as the  foreign-language section.
