yy棋牌的名字怎么改Uthaug- For fresh Tomb Raider, cast Alicia Vikander as LaraUthaug: For fresh Tomb Raider, cast Alicia Vikander as Lara How do you bring a new perspective to an action hero as iconic as Lara Croft? Roar Uthaug, director of the upcoming film "Tomb Raider," reckons hes cracked it in just four words: "You cast Alicia Vikander."Lara Crofts story has been told and retold over 11 video games since she backflipped into our lives in 1996. Shes also appeared in two runs of comics and was played by Angelina Jolie in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (2001) and its 2003 sequel, "The Cradle of Life." Now Laras back for "Tomb Raider," a movie reboot loosely based on the 2013 game of the same name. And Norwegian director Uthaug says Vikander will show us the characters more human side."It was important to us that this was a new origin story for the big screen and that theres a new Lara Croft that we want to introduce to audiences," Uthaug told me this week. "We wanted to create, of course, this kick-ass female action hero, but shes also vulnerable. And that was important in this movie, that theres an emotional connection there. That shes relatable.""Tomb Raider" introduces us to a younger Lara who hasnt yet begun her tomb-raiding career. Shes been making ends meet as a fast-food bike courier in London since her aristocrat father Richard Croft, played by "The Wire" star Dominic West, disappeared while investigating the legend of an ancient curse.After discovering a hidden stash of his old documents, Lara sets out to solve the mystery of his death. Sea captain Lu Ren, played by Daniel Wu, who was previously seen in "Geostorm" and "Warcraft," backs her up.But while the legends warn of a cursed queen who spreads death wherever she goes, Lara faces more down-to-earth threats. Shes pursued by bikers, knife-wielding thieves and mercenaries armed with machine guns over an exhausting journey that takes her from the streets of east London to a lost island off the coast of Japan. Even the natural world has it in for Lara, with stormy seas, slippery cliffs and regular old gravity conspiring to make her life miserable.Vikander, who won an Oscar for "The Danish Girl" and played a humanoid robot in "Ex Machina," threw herself into training, packing on 13 pounds (6 kilograms) of muscle to meet the physical demands of the role. "Alicia works really hard on everything she does," Uthaug said. "And she worked extremely hard in preparing for this role, both with her trainer and also with our stunt coordinators to learn the fights, to learn the moves, to learn the archery, to climb, then to jump and swim and to dodge traps. And she was just a real trooper."Despite Vikanders feats of endurance, Uthaug says the story wouldnt work if Lara didnt also grow as a character. A decent action set piece is important, he says, but he doesnt believe films should aim to replicate the immersive experience of directing a character in a video game."I think the emotional connection is so much more important in a movie," he said.Uthaug is no stranger to action films. He previously directed catastrophe drama "The Wave" and the action thriller "Escape" (or "Flukt"). He says he expects fans to be surprised by the movies emotional depth. But its possible viewers will be more impressed by the depth of the gaping chasms Lara spends much of the film dangling over."In any movie, but especially in big action adventure movies, you need that emotional heart to really care about the people thatre running away from the explosions," Uthaug said, laughing.Laras relationship with her lost father is by far the most important thing in her life, and Uthaug says its no coincidence theres no romantic subplot in the film. "I really feel that the emotional heart of this movie is the father-daughter story," he said. "And we didnt want Lara to have other relationships that would take away from that."He also hopes viewers will be surprised by antagonist Mathias Vogel. The character is brought to sweaty, compelling life by Walton Goggins, whos best known for "The Hateful Eight" and "Justified." Vogels hunt for the tomb that brought Richard Croft to the island has kept him isolated there, but his luck changes when Lara arrives."Hes not this kind of mustache-twirling supervillain with a plan to conquer the world," Uthaug said. "Hes a man on a mission. And hes been on this island for seven years, and hes really tired and he just wants to find that tomb and get home."I can sympathize. After all that running, jumping and corpse-hunting, everyone involved in this movie is entitled to a long rest."Tomb Raider" opened in the UK on March 6, and hits theaters in Australia on March 15 and in the US on March 16.
