Alicia Vikander armed with arrows for Tomb Raider remake

By Helen Pye

Alicia Vikander warned fans to expect a very different Lara Croft from Angelina Jolie's gun-slinging incarnation when she takes over the role in the forthcoming Tomb Raider remake.

Based on the 2013 reboot of the video game, the Swedish actress said the film is "an origin story" and she was learning to wield weapons other than guns. She said: "Part of the reboot, if you go back, is the weapon she used mostly is an arrow actually, and an axe or an ice-pick.

"It will be a big step stepping into Lara Croft, because I have to do a lot more stunts than I have before, but that's something I'm very much looking forward to."

Tomb Raider is expected in cinemas in spring 2018.
