ALICIA VIKANDER (TOMB RAIDER MOVIE) BARBIE

Talk about when opposites collide, right? Warner Bros. partnered up with Mattel, the creators of Barbie to produce this lovely doll based on Alicia Vikander's Lara.
Official photo by Mattel.
She comes with her climbing axe, her father's diary and a map. I can see little girls of this generation imagining great adventures with her, just like I use to.
She's already available in some shops in the US but you can pre-order one here.
See more photos below.

The 2nd TOMB RAIDER MOVIE Trailer is Here!!!!!!



Need we say any more?... 

"Lara Croft is 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, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father¹s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he¹s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can¹t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad¹s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn¹t be higher for Lara, who‹against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit‹must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider."

New and Improved Intro Video!



We've given our intro video a spruce up!
More clips have been added of Lara's adventures other than the games and you will hear a different version of the narration by the lovely Shelley Blond (original voice of Lara Croft).
This is a professional actress who gave up her free time and did it three different ways for us to choose from, so we are extremely grateful!
Hope you enjoy and best turn up your volume for proper effect.

New Documentary Project - We need you!



Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you all had a lovely holiday, however you celebrate.

To start 2018, we are planning a new documentary series - a fans retropective about the official Lara Croft models - but of course, we can't do this without the fans participation.
Our hope is to make an episode for every model, including Nathalie Cook if possible, and we would love you to send us videos of yourselves talking about your experiences meeting the real-life Laras with any photos/videos you have from those experiences. Even if you'd just like to express your opinion on them, we'd love to hear!

Please send your content to kate.thediggersdaughter@gmail.com

Looking forward to hearing from you!

EDIT: If you have trouble sending your videos, we recommend using wetransfer.com.
