It's been a few years since we've seen a lass suit up as Ms Croft and proceed to be a general badass for a couple of hours - Swedish babe Alicia Vikander is here to change that.

Rocking the classic khaki tank and cargo pants combination that we all remember so fondly, Vikander certainly looks prepared for a spot of tomb raiding.

Ditching the tight fitting shirt and daisy duke combination that Angelina Jolie made famous almost two decades ago, no one seems to be complaining about the new outfit.

In speaking to vanity fair via email she sounded super excited about the role:

“When I was asked to take on this role I got really excited—Lara Croft is a truly iconic character. I think people can identify with her for lots of different reasons, but for me I very much see her as a model for many young women. She’s trying to carve out her place in the world and connect her future with her past. She also has a fantastic mix of traits—tough, smart, vulnerable, plus she’s kick ass! She is also uniquely different to other characters I have taken on previously. It's a lot of fun trying to get into Lara’s head and the challenge of getting to grips with such a physical role is an element of this project that I find an absolute thrill.”
