Can you imagine if Angelina Jolie didn't star alongside Brad Pitt in Mr. & Mrs. Smith? Well, Gwen Stefani revealed that it almost happened. During an interview on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday, the "Make Me Like You" singer revealed that she was actually in the running for the role of Jane Smith. "I feel like I almost got it," she told the host. "I went to a bunch [of auditions]." Gwen previously opened up about the audition process during an interview with Vogue in April 2008. "It was between me and Angelina Jolie, and I'm like, 'Oh, great. I got a shot here,'" she explained. While she ended up not taking the role to focus on her music, the movie actually jump-started Angelina and Brad's epic romance. »

Crystal Dynamics’ adorned video game reboot will serve as primary inspiration for Warner Bros.’ Tomb Raider adaptation, according to Alicia Vikander. Specifically, the 2013 release that reintroduced Lara Croft to the gaming scene with aplomb.
Word comes by way of Hitfix, where Vikander spoke at length about her role in the imminent Jason Bourne. Talk inevitably turned toward the Roar Uthaug (The Wave) video game movie, which is being aligned as an origins story that will seemingly draw heavily from Crystal’s console title.
“They told me they were doing the film based on the reboot of the game from 2013. That is more of an origin story. You get into an emotional aspect of getting to know Lara hopefully in an in-depth way. So I hope that doing a film of the rebooted game will bring something new and fresh that’ll stand on its own two legs.”

There has been talk of a Tomb Raider reboot for many years following Angelina Jolie's big-screen incarnation of Lara Croft, but we only recently found out that Alicia Vikander would take over the iconic role, and a release date of March 16, 2018 had been set. We had also heard that this reboot would focus on a younger Croft, and would be loosely based on Square Enix's 2013 version of the video game - but in a new interview with Hitfix, Vikander seems to suggest it might be more than just a loose adaptation. “They told me they were doing the film based on the reboot of the game from 2013. That is more of an origin story. You get into an emotional aspect of getting to know Lara hopefully in an in-depth way. So I hope that doing a film of the rebooted game will bring something new and fresh that’ll »
Alicia Vikander is on a nice roll at the moment, and she's likely to be a household name any day now. In 2015, she appeared in four films- including Ex MacHina and The Danish Girl- and is about to be seen in the hotly-anticipated Jason Bourne. The biggest test of her rising star power will come when she takes on the role of Lara Croft in a new Tomb Raider film.
Tomb Raider will be a series reboot, hitting the reset button and acting like the two Angelina Jolie films based on the property never happened. What'll be the inspiration for the rebooted film? Why, the rebooted games, of course! See, Hollywood isn't the only entity that likes putting facelifts on its classic titles. The Tomb Raider games themselves were rebooted in 2013, and Vikander says that's exactly what the film will look to as their source material.

A very fun little nugget of info I just realized is that it seems Lara Croft is the only character in the superhero/comic book/video game realm to be played exclusively by Oscar-winners across multiple film iterations. First there was Angelina Jolie, and now we have the uber-talented bombshell Alicia Vikander. Not only have they won Oscars, they won them And Then got cast as the iconic... Read More »

Following in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie is a daunting task, especially when the task in question is taking on the role that launched Jolie into a Hollywood stardom — Lara Croft — and in turn further established the character as an icon. But Alicia Vikander appears confident she’s got this covered. The Ex Machina actress was cast as the lead in the newest film adaptation of the Tomb Raider games back in April. Talking with Vikander today about Jason Bourne, I checked in on the plans for Lara Croft. The new movie had been reported to “tell the story of a young and untested Croft fighting to survive her first adventure.” Looks like we will indeed get to see more of the archaeologist-adventurer actually becoming the Tomb Raider, much like in the more recent games. “They told me they were doing the film based on the reboot of the game »

In a way, Angelina Jolie paved the way for Alicia Vikander. E! News' Maria Menounos caught up with the 27-year-old actress Monday at the Las Vegas premiere of her new movie, Jason Bourne, and asked her how it feels to be taking over the role Jolie made famous 15 years ago. "That is a woman I would love to meet," Vikander said of Jolie, a fellow Oscar winner who starred in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and its sequel, 2003's Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. "She made an icon of that character, of course." Vikander said she is a longtime fan of Jolie's work, both in front of and behind the camera. "She's quite an incredible woman," she raved of the actress, director and »

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie spoil their kids ... in much the same way lots of other parents might. The couple celebrated Knox's 8th birthday Tuesday morning at The Griddle Cafe in West Hollywood. The kid's got a major sweet tooth -- we're told he filled up on Oreo-filled pancakes topped with whipped cream and powdered sugar. While Knox's mom and dad can afford private jets and French castles, they're actually known for being very down to earth parents. »

Universal is currently in the middle of trying to launch a cinematic universe centered around their famous movie monsters. The Mummy reboot starring Tom Cruise is currently filming and they have plans for a slew of other movies that will connect together at some point down the line. The studio isn't messing around in terms of going after top notch talent for these projects, and they may be about to nab another Oscar winner for a big role.
Variety is reporting that No Country For Old Men and Skyfall star Javier Bardem is in talks to take the lead in Universal Monsters' Frankenstein for their new monsters cinematic universe, through it isn't known if he is playing Dr. Frankenstein or Frankenstein's monster.

Do you believe in ghosts? Paul Feig does. Minutes into the refreshingly funny reboot of the 1984 classic Ghostbusters, Feig and his gal gang of comediennes not-so-subtly acknowledge the specter in the room: the resistance to a female reboot of this revered film. Kristen Wiig’s character, Erin Gilbert, sees her tenure position jeopardized by the appearance of a book she co-authored, “Ghosts From Your Past, Literally and Figuratively.” Later, with the help of her fellow writer, Melissa McCarthy’s character Abby Yates, she posts a video on YouTube of her first ghost encounter. A commenter on the site complains: “Ain’t no b!tches gonna hunt no ghosts.”
But in the new Ghostbusters movie Feig, Wiig, McCarthy, & Co., clearly aware of the ghouls that haunt them, exorcise their demons.
The film exists on two planes—and both work. The first is its strongest, the Feig/Wiig/McCarthy comedic approach, successful since Bridesmaids, »

A War (Tobias Lindholm)
In only his second outing as sole director after 2012’s acclaimed A Hijacking, Tobias Lindholm is commanding unusual levels of respect and anticipation with A War – undoubtedly earned with the establishing of a very personal brand of filmmaking, rooted in observation, deliberate pacing and a terse directing style. Viewers familiar with his previous film, a hostage drama detailing the hijacking of a »

News about the “Tomb Raider” reboot is slowly coming out as, after learning back in April that Alicia Vikander will star as Lara Croft, we now have an official release date of March 16, 2018. The Warner Bros/MGM project got its start back in 2011 when MGM acquired the rights to the property.
The original video game came out in 1996 and became one of the most popular games of its time, so much so that it received a film adaptation only 5 years later. That film, and the 2003 sequel, starred Angelina Jolie in lead role and garnered lukewarm responses.
Vikander made a massive splash with her incredible year of 2015. She won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “The Danish Girl” and, arguably, should’ve received equal recognition for her stunning turn as A. »
