Get ready for the new daily show

We have our new Tomb Raider/Lara Croft and it’s a great choice!

April 28th, 2016 by Marc Comments


The very beautiful star of Ex_Machina and The Man From UNCLE Alicia Vikander has been cast in what must surely be one of Hollywood’s most sought after roles.

Yes, she’ll play Lara Croft in the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise for MGM, Warner Bros and GK Films.

The movie also has a director in the the form of The Wave’s Roar Uthaug and is set to introduce Croft before she comes the world’s (second) most famous archaeologist.

While it was strongly suspected that The Force Awakens’ Daisy Ridley would be the iconic character, it seems the choice has been made and, while we’d love to see Ridley in the role, we think Vikander is a wonderful choice too.

Get excited, Tomb Raider is coming back to the big screen, folks!

What do you think?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
