Starring Alicia Vikander as iconic video game character, Lara Croft, the upcoming ‘Tomb Raider’ reboot has just released its first official images over at Vanity Fair. Clearly, ‘Tomb Raider’ is channelling the aesthetics of the recent 2013 video game, with a younger Lara croft appearing in far more survivalistic gear than her earlier counterpart.
Having broken through with sci-fi hit ‘Ex Machina,’ with roles in ‘Jason Bourne’ and ‘The Man From UNCLE’ under her belt, and ‘Tomb Raider’ in production, Alicia Vikander seems well on her way to becoming something of a genre icon – and this latest bit of casting news will surely only help her on her way. Deadline report that Vikander, winner of the 2016 Best Supporting Actress Oscar for ‘The Danish Girl,’ is in talks to star in ‘Freakshift,’ a new original action-horror movie from British writer-director Ben Wheatley. It sounds like a fairly ambitious project which could mark a significant change in gear for Wheatley.

The most iconic female video-game character ever is having a birthday.

To mark the auspicious anniversary, game publisher Square Enix is releasing a tricked-out updated version of the last Tomb Raider installment, Rise of the Tomb Raider, on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander, who grew up a fan of the game, will be suiting up for a film reboot arriving in 2018.

What do you get when some of the most amazing women in Hollywood come together for one night only? For the 22nd Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards, held on Monday night at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on Monday, Kate Winslet, Carey Mulligan, Alicia Vikander, Amy Schumer, Ava Duvernay, and Meryl Streep, were all honored with trophies in addition to their magazine covers. Shailene Woodley, who walked her first red carpet in months to honor her Divergent co-star Winslet, Zoe Kravitz and her boyfriend Twin Shadow, Nina Dobrev, Mary J.

Hurrah, the final day of Fashion Month is here! And what better way to go out with a bang than the Louis Vuitton show, one of the most influential collections of every season. On this sunny Wednesday morning, artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière filled the Frank Gehry-designed Louis Vuitton Foundation with 32 tons of high definition screens — making you feel as though you were inside a video game, or as the designer referenced it, “a multi-dimensional digital canvas for a fantasy world.” They projected images of owls, digital motifs, and as the show started, a man talking in a robotic tone about unleashing the potential of your imagination. It was a trippy start (especially sans coffee), although there was nothing virtual about the impressive front row that included Catherine Deneuve, Grimes, Michelle Williams, Alicia Vikander, Kelela, Adèle Exarchopoulos and many more.
