With cameras rolling on the reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, photos have surfaced of new star Alicia Vikander filming a stunt-filled scene.
Vikander stars as Lara Croft in the new film—taking cues from the Square Enix video game reboot that explores the character’s origins—and appears to be performing some of the stunts set for the film.
No more Angelina Jolie bootie shorts.
These shots show very clearly that the new Lara Croft’s look appears similar to the video game counterpart.
The Oscar Award winner for Best Supporting Actress appears to have a handle on the stunts, which depict her hands bound by rope while scaling across a damaged, narrow pipe.
Was she a prisoner, and is she escaping? The first game rebooted game showed many of her shipwrecked crew mates either slaughtered or kidnapped by cult members, and Croft escapes their clutches to mount her rescue mission.
