Hyperbole or not, you said it. We proved to you that she did do some heavy gym workouts to prepare for the role. She obviously isn't a lifetime bodybuilder, though. She's an actress. They don't typically go for the "bodybuilder look" even for physically demanding female roles anyway. She has a thin frame, but she still looks fit and strong.
What you did there was admit that you recognized it was hyperbole and yet decided to still argue the point of her having been in a gym before. You realize that means you intentionally argued the wrong point right? That means you recognized the fact that the actual/main point has merit: She does not look athletic or fit/built enough to be in any way physically realized as Lara Croft. She looks like a stick figure wearing clothes. There is no size, curve, or definition to any of her muscles.

You're not wrong about them rarely going for that super fit look when it comes to movies and actresses though. Charlize Theron in Mad Max was also super thin. Luckily, her being and looking physically stronger isn't really a prerequisite for this movie to be great, nor would it save it from bombing. More of a nitpick that would have enhanced presentation.

This is the part where someone who hasnt ever seen the inside of a gym would get defensive, and do something sophomoric like point out someone's age and post count. big grin

Its also the part where someone who benches 385lbs would post a pic...

...and laugh at the defensive guy.

Sophomoric? Says the one who's been passive aggressively throwing out indirect comments instead of actually taking part in the argument. I've ignored most of your dumb side comments.

So what looks like it would be a better representation of Crofts fitness to you? This or this? And if you choose the second one, why?

You mean the fitness model or the actress?
Considering the fitness model likely cant act, i choose the actress.
And thats an actual not ****ing with you answer.

Yeah, of course you'd choose the actress for the acting role. Thats not the point though. It goes back to this:

I'm saying the fitness models body is a better representation of how Croft should look. I'm not saying the fitness model would be better in the role or that being physically stronger makes her a better actress. I'm talking solely about her physical attributes. Croft in both the new and the old games had more of a fitness model physique. While that doesn't make her wrestling a 300lb man or backflipping over krakens believable, it at least helps sell the point. It's not necessary but it's nitpicking something that would have helped the presentation.

Here is how she "should" look (below), and I'd say they got a great match and a phenomenal actress to boot. This discussion started because you said she didn't go to the gym. We proved you wrong.

She's young, athletic, and seems to fit the role. She looks pretty accurate...

You guys focusing solely on the hyperbole comment despite the fact that I've outlined the main point to you multiple times doesn't make much sense. Saying someone "looks like they've never stepped into a gym" pretty obviously means that they don't have much muscle. Arguing the literal meaning of a saying completely misses the main argument. It's like you trying to prove Surturs comment wrong.

Congrats. You proved him wrong.


Though she actually does look a bit better in that photo than the original one in question.

I don't know if they were filmed far enough apart for her to make a difference by working out, if they just photoshopped it on top of that obvious filter, or if its just angles, but there's a noticeable difference. You can actually make out her delts and triceps in that photo (her arm in general looks thicker), not to mention her thighs have more shape to them.

Indeed she has that "I barely eat anything, but do muscle training" look.

Bangable.

I'm still curious as to why the studio didn't just contact the actress for the re-boot Laura considering that she did both the voice and motion-capture work for it and the movie itself is taking inspiration from it.

She was going through a pregnancy this past year according to her wiki page. It probably just conflicted with filming.

I think theis whole thing boils down to shitty cash grab name recognition. Basically half of what makes hollywood, hollywood these days.

^ But Vikander isn't exactly a household name. I think they legitimately wanted a great up-and-coming actress.

That works for both parties.
It puts the actress' name out there, and saves the studio money.

Indeed she looks like it would take her only 3 tries to open up a jar of pickles.
