Alicia Vikander's Tomb Raider gets confirmed release date
The much-anticipated Tomb Raider reboot, which is to star Ex Machina and The Danish Girl's Alicia Vikander, has been given a release date.
The movie will hit cinemas on March 16th in 2018, meaning it will arrive a full 15 years after the last Tomb Raider movie hit screens.
The hugely successful video game series that became two blockbuster movies will be rebooted by Roar Uthuag, the director behind the Norwegian disaster drama The Wave. Filming will get underway next year.
Angelina Jolie starred as heroine Lara Craft in 2001's Tomb Raider and 2003's Tomb Raider: Cradle Of Life, but will not be involved in the reboot. Prior to Vikander being cast, Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Daisy Ridley, The Maze Runner star Kaya Scodelario and Captain America's Hayley Atwell had all been linked with the role of Croft.
Vikander will next be seen in Jason Bourne, the new sequel that sees Matt Damon returning to the role of Jason Bourne and director Paul Greengrass return to the director's chair.
Julia Stiles will also return, with Vincel Cassel, Tommy Lee Jones also joining Vikander in the cast.
Bourne 5 will be released on July 27th in 2016. You can purchase all four previous instalments of the series here in our online store.
