Alicia Vikander to Play Lara Croft in ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot

“The Danish Girl” star Alicia Vikander has nabbed one of Hollywood’s most coveted leading roles.

Vikander will be playing Lara Croft in the MGM and GK Films’ “Tomb Raider” reboot, it was announced Thursday. Norwegian helmer Roar Uthaug is on board to direct.

While other actresses had met for the role, including Daisy Ridley, source indicate that Vikander had always been the first choice. The reason for the delay of announcement was that the studio was waiting for a new draft of the script, sources say.

Comcast Is Buying DreamWorks Animation for $3.8 Billion USD

Comcast-owned NBCUniversal is about to get a little more animated as the media giant has announced the acquisition of DreamWorks Animation, thus confirming the recently-surfaced rumors. DreamWorks Animation — the studio behind the likes of Shrek and Kung Fu Panda — is set to become part of NBCUniversal’s Universal Filmed Entertainment Group while UFEG’s Chris Meledandri will oversee operations as the DreamWorks Animation brand remains intact. Said Steve Burke, NBCUniversal CEO:
DreamWorks Animation is a great addition to NBCUniversal. Jeffrey Katzenberg and the DreamWorks organization have created a dynamic film brand and a deep library of intellectual property. DreamWorks will help us grow our film, television, theme parks and consumer products businesses for years to come. We have enjoyed extraordinary success over the last six years in animation with the emergence of Illumination Entertainment and its brilliant team at Illumination Mac Guff studio. The prospects for our future together are tremendous. We are fortunate to have Illumination founder Chris Meledandri to help guide the growth of the DreamWorks Animation business in the future.

DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg — who will become chairman of DreamWorks Animation New Media — added:
Having spent the past two decades working together with our team to build DreamWorks Animation into one of the world’s most beloved brands, I am proud to say that NBCUniversal is the perfect home for our company; a home that will embrace the legacy of our storytelling and grow our businesses to their fullest potential. This agreement not only delivers significant value for our shareholders, but also supports NBCUniversal’s growing family entertainment business. As for my role, I am incredibly excited to continue exploring the potential of AwesomenessTV, NOVA and other new media opportunities, and can’t wait to get started.

The deal — which should alleviate the problems DreamWorks Animation has faced since it began operating as a publicly-traded studio — is expected to become official before the end of the year and marks Comcast’s biggest acquisition since it purchased NBC from GE back in 2011. Valued at $41 USD per share, DreamWorks Animation’s purchase will ultimately cost $3.8 billion USD (a $4.1 billion USD equity value including debt).

As Variety points out, the deal is on par with the $4 billion USD Disney paid for LucasFilm in 2012 and the $3.96 billion USD it dropped on Marvel in 2009, but pales in comparison to 2006′s $7.6 billion USD deal for Pixar.

Just finished DD S2, and really, really enjoyed it. Probably more than S1. Didn't care for Elektra's casting, tbh - physically I thought she should always be a bit more robust than the woman they had. But loved it - especially as Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Castle starts picking off ninjas from the rooftop. "See ya around, Red."

I started watching Daredevil last weekend while my wife and daughter were out of town. I have watched five or six episodes from Season 1 and so far I like it.

One thing I thought was weird, though: this is a series produced by Netflix, right? For some reason, when I scrolled through my Netflix options, I didn't see it anywhere. I actually had to do a manual search for "Daredevil" before I could even select the series (and even then, it only showed Season 1). It was almost like Netflix didn't want me to know it was available.

Justin Lin, Andrew Dodge and Alfredo Botello are ready to shoot some intergalactic hoops with LeBron James.

The Fast & Furious 6 and Star Trek Beyond helmer is co-writing with Dodge and Botello the Warner Bros.' sequel Space Jam 2. Lin is also eyeing to direct and produce via his Perfect Storm Entertainment, and sources say he will be thoroughly involved in the creative development of the project.

Rumors of a follow-up to the live action/animated 1996 hit have been brewing for years, and picked up again when James and his company SpringHill Entertainment signed a deal with Warner Bros. in July. The Cleveland Cavaliers NBA player, who recently appeared in Amy Schumer comedy Trainwreck, will star in Space Jam 2. He's repped by WME.

I have to say - I don't particularly mind those costumes.
