Alicia Vikander Is Getting Body-Shamed For Her Role In Tomb Raider And We Aren't Having It

The official Tomb Raider website has been updated with a teaser countdown to some big news for tomorrow, namely in the way of Shadow of the Tomb Raider news.

The media franchise that originated from the action-adventure video game, conquered the silver screen with Angelina Jolie in the role of Lara Croft in 2001 and 2003.

Microsoft's support of Tomb Raider reboot led to sequel's exclusive, and the game wouldn't be released on PlayStation 4 until one year later as Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration. I am surprised!' face tomorrow. Spilt coffee creamer? A very generous and curvy line of cocaine? And that female empowerment is clearly the aim here - Lara Croft was one of the first woman action heroes in video games (until she was sexualized in later iterations).

"Tomb Raider" 2018 portrays impressively the tale of a girl in search of a goal. The moment of the presentation seeks to coincide with the premiere of the film starring Alicia Vikander.

In December a year ago, Square Enix said Shadow of the Tomb Raider would be revealed at a "major 2018 event".


First, she is easily the most popular action-oriented female video game character of all time. Are you more or less excited knowing it will release by the end of the year? She also makes a pretty good point about the film's name, "Why isn't Tomb Raider just titled Lara Croft?".

In the movie, however, Lara kills in only two scenes: once when she is attacked from behind and is forced into action, and again when she is trying to save some prisoners from mercenaries holding them captive.

Square Enix confirmed the development the next game in the Tomb Raider franchise back in December 2017.

Following the disappearance of her father, Lara (Alicia Vikander) grows up disillusioned with life; she turns to boxing for comfort. Some were left feeling majorly bummed out with Rise of the Tomb Raider's story, and fan favorite Sam's absence most certainly didn't help with that matter.
