Penrose Studios set a new standard for VR storytelling last year with Arden's Wake, a stunning short that introduced us to Meena, a young girl living in a post-apocalyptic, waterlogged world. But that was just the prologue. At the Tribeca Film Festival, the studio is back with the next chapter, Tide's Fall. And it's bringing some serious star power: Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider) has taken on the voice of Meena, and she's also serving as an executive producer. Just like in Ex Machina, Vikander instantly makes the character someone you can't help but connect with.
Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander just got married. The "X-Men: Apocalypse" and the "Ex Machina" stars are notorious for keeping their romance under wrap. According to E! News, Fassbender and Vikander had a secret engagement and they followed this with a secret wedding. The publication noted that the couple exchanged "I Dos" in Ibiza on Saturday.
Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender will be playing the role of a couple in the upcoming movie "The Light Between Oceans." However, the co-stars also happen to be dating each other in real life. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Vikander said that she and Fassbender have an unspoken agreement to keep certain things about themselves and their relationship private. "And I think we've made a clear statement that we keep certain things just between us. It was very easy to unite, but that's quite personal."
Alicia Vikander is following in Angelina Jolie's butt-kicking footsteps. The Swedish actress has signed on to play the role of Lara Croft in a new "Tomb Raider" movie from Norwegian director Roar Uthaug. MGM, Warner Bros. and GK Films announced the news Thursday. Jolie was the first actress to bring the popular video game character to life on the big screen. Both Jolie films were poorly received by critics, but the first was a big box office success.
