Your midweek pick-me-up: a first look at Alicia Vikander in her role as a younger Lara Croft in the new upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. Although Angelina Jolie left behind some very undeniably large shoes to fill in, we're sure that Alicia will nail the fighting sequences as well as Angelina did, if not better.

But don't expect Alicia's Lara to be similar to Angelina's version. "What we're doing is something quite different since they rebooted the game in 2013," she told E! News. "It's a whole new take. We're doing a film of that game."

The Tomb Raider reboot – that also stars Walton Goggins as Father Mathias Vogel, Dominic West as Lord Richard Croft, and Daniel Wu as Lu Ren – marks the third adaptation of the 1996 video game franchise. It's expected to hit the big screens on 28 March 2018. Until we receive more news of the film, enjoy these photos of Alicia doing her own stunts.
