Is she good choice for the lead?


Imo, yes. Emphatically yes.

Vikander is a hugely talented actress (as is her partner), and a very attractive woman to boot.

I don't think she will have any problems nailing the performance.

On the other hand, how that part is written and directed, remains to be seen though.

Just my quick thoughts.

Peace and Merry Xmas.

This is a movie inspired by Toom Raider



yeah Gus Van Savant- the director who is most intrested in film as formalist media saw toom raider-and what he got from it was how neat the camera was-your basically constantly following laura as she goes on her adventure.

Back in 2003 that was very hard(there is famously a dolly shot that is half a mile long)-but when you see it there is something effecting about it-just this sense of people going and moving on a quest.

I honestly don't think much of either of the previous toom raider movie-there generic female tough girl action movies, that the second has a little notion of heart to it, but not much. There kinda boring really.

but there is something there. the recent ones do a great job of just creating a character for Laura Croft-someone who is scared and a little vulnerable-but the originals share at there best the sence that she is on a quest- a hard quest, a dark quest, but a sence that she has to keep going.

, what i would find most intresting about another tomb raider movie is if they did something like this. In my head it would be a neat movie if it is just one 100 minute long take of her going through a dungeon. And Vikander would be great at doing that.

Of course they don't have to do that specifically-but i really hope they have an idea for that-cause thats what makes the game.

That video clip was so boring I lost complete interest about half way through.
I'll watch a standard Hollywood action movie over that anyday.
