Hello Alicia fans! I unfortunately had to miss out on the last two weeks of Tomb Raider promotion, due to a lot going on in my offline life. During these days, Alicia was a guest at several talk shows (which we alerted you about in the days leading up to them!). Instead of making a post for each now, I’m just gonna make a master-post with all the video clips and screen captures! Some of these already got their own posts with production stills, but I have now finished adding screen captures from all the major talk shows I could find from the film promotion tour. These includes Jimmy Fallon, James Corden and Noite Com Danilo Gentili, and I have also finally added screen captures from her February appearances on Skavlan and The Graham Norton Show! A total of 2000+ HD screen captures have been added, and you can find links to each below. I really love watching Alicia on talk shows, as she’s always so laid back and fun – if you missed any of these while they aired, you should definitely check them out below the cut! I especially loved her Jimmy Fallon appearance, where she once again played a hilarious Swedish game with Jimmy. Have fun watching 😉
With the Tomb Raider promotion coming to an end, and Alicia taking a quick (and much deserved) break before beginning the Submergence promotion, I’ve now caught up with all the interviews she has done lately! This is the 6th promotion interviews master-post this promo tour, and the biggest one we’ve done yet. These are from various countries, so keep in mind some are dubbed or subtitled. In addition to the new videos, I have also updated our gallery with screen captures from the majority of them. For all the new additions, just head over to our Screen Captures > Interviews section! Have fun watching – I will be catching up on her recent talk shows up next, stay tuned. For those interested, here you can find the previous video posts: Post 1, Post 2, Post 3, Post 4, Post 5.
Following the two talk shows we’ve already posted about earlier (Build Series + Good Morning America), we follow up with another one! Alicia visited “Live with Kelly and Ryan” today to promote Tomb Raider, and the duo have now uploaded a clip to their official YouTube account. Check it out below! I will add screen captures and hopefully some stills later. Alicia looks so beautiful…
FYI: Alicia will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight, make sure to tune in!
We’ve seen bits and pieces from Entertainment Weekly’s big “Tomb Raider” interview with Alicia, but they’ve now finally shared the full video! It’s an 8 minute long clip where they discuss the new film, you can check it out below.
As expected, Alicia was a guest at Build Series in New York City today! She was there to discuss Tomb Raider, and we have her full interview for you above. I’ve also found 30+ gorgeous photos of Alicia at the set, most in high quality, which can be found in our gallery along with beautiful HD screen captures from the video.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures, “Tomb Raider” is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”). Vikander portrays Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Check out Vikander at BUILD, where she discussed the film.
Hello Alicia fans! A star-studded premiere of Tomb Raider was last night held in Hollywood, and as the main star herself, Alicia was of course in attendance. The premiere was held at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, and Alicia looked absolutely amazing walking down the red carpet in a stunning gold and black couture dress by – surprise – Louis Vuitton! With a bolder make-up look than usual, and a gorgeous do with a braid on the site, this look goes straight into my top 10 favorite looks of hers of all time.
Alicia was joined by her co-star Walton Goggins at the red carpet (I love the pics of the two of them posing together!), and other celebrities in attendance were Kate Bosworth, her husband Michael Polish, Danielle Panabaker and Camilla Luddington, who voices Lara Croft in the recent Tomb Raiders video games. We’ve been blessed with a rather crazy amount of photos, and they’re all so stunning I just couldn’t leave a single one out! I know you’re going to love these; follow the link below for all the pretty.
We are certainly being blessed with many new photoshoots this year, Alicia fans! Following the stunning Hunger Magazine photoshoot we just posted below, we’ve already now got another one for you. During her promotion tour for Tomb Raider in Los Angeles, Alicia stopped by USA Today for a gorgeous portrait session and an interview. You can find the pretty new portraits in our gallery, and read on for their full story! More Tomb Raider related updates are coming up, stay tuned …
USA TODAY | LOS ANGELES – Alicia Vikander had just wrapped her exhausting 100-day Tomb Raider shoot last June when she decided to catch the summer movie sensation Wonder Woman for rest and relaxation.
Seeing Gal Gadot’s powerful Diana Prince at the center of the superhero world knocked Vikander out.
“I was amazed, I watched a battle scene onscreen with only women and realized that it was so far away from everything I have been fed my entire life,” Vikander says.
The visualization hit home, she says. “I’m a feminist, and aware, but I was like, ‘Wow,’ I hadn’t really even questioned that I only see men in these things. I felt thankful to them for bringing (us) this film.”
Nearly a year later, Vikander is returning the favor, stepping into the action boots of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider (in theaters Friday). Angelina Jolie previously strapped on the iconic video-game heroine’s combat-ready footwear in 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the 2003 sequel Lara Croft: Tomb Raider — The Cradle of Life.
The news that the now 29-year-old Swede (who married actor Michael Fassbender last year) would take on the rebooted role was a surprise, mostly since Vikander is the toast of art-house film world — known as the beautiful and intelligent humanoid robot Ava in Ex Machina and the artist Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl. continue reading
As alerted a couple of weeks ago, Alicia is currently featured in Hunger Magazine to promote Tomb Raider! The magazine has now shared their full story on Alicia, as well as released three additional photos from her photoshoot. I love everything about this shoot, and these new additions might just be my favorite ones yet! I’ve added the new photos to our gallery, and you can read the article below.
Hunger – Alicia Vikander has a mantra. “When things are hard,” she begins, slowly, “I say, ‘Yeah, but it’s not tougher than ballet school.’” Alicia enrolled at the Royal Swedish Ballet School at nine, and danced with companies until she was 19, which amounts to a childhood spent in permanent discipline. “One thing you learn in a school like that, if it doesn’t break you, is that no one does [the work] for you.”
It’s a rather worldly lesson to have internalised as a child, but as preliminary training for Hollywood, you’d hazard the lesson was invaluable. Today, the 29-year-old Oscar winner still has the physical mannerisms of a dancer: she sits, back straight on her chair, legs crossed, occasionally grasping her feet and rocking from side to side. Her first English-speaking role was only “six or seven years ago”, and she speaks slowly and carefully, though it doesn’t seem like the uncertainty of the non-native speaker, but instead a deep-rooted thoughtfulness.
For there is plenty for Alicia to reflect on. Next week, her latest film, Tomb Raider, will be released; she, of course, plays the video game riot grrrl Lara Croft in the new adaptation, directed by Norwegian director Roar Uthaug, and co-starring Dominic West and Kristin Scott Thomas. It is one of the last projects Alicia had committed to before she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2016, for her role as Gerda Wegerer in The Danish Girl, which means that she is now, for the first time in two years, picking new projects, working out who she wants to be next. She recently took four months off – the first break in five and a half years when she didn’t have something else in preparation – and travelled to Japan: “Number one on my list until I went – and I want to go back and see more.” She is reading, greedily. “I don’t want to say what,” she says, coy, granting only that she enjoyed Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens and Homo Deus. She is tentatively interested in producing. “I love filmmaking, so as an actor it’s been wonderful, but you come in at a later stage in the process. But to be there and develop an idea and move forward – that’s what I put a lot of time into thinking about right now.” continue reading
