It's been about two months since Alicia Vikander teased the 2018 reboot of Tomb Raider, in which she will star as the iconic Lara Croft. So it was about time Warner Bros. released a poster, right? After the debacle behind the Spider-Man: Homecoming poster this summer, you'd think they would make sure it was on point... right?
Preferences aside, it's, well, just a poster. At least you'd think that if you didn't hit Twitter. Folks are going in on whatever the deal is with Alicia's neck in this poster.
Don't know what everyone's complaining about, Alicia Vikander's neck looks totally fine in that Tomb Raider poster. pic.twitter.com/rsaajJChw3— Stephen Watson (@WatsonTheScot) September 18, 2017
No disrespect meant to Alicia Vikander, because she's lovely. But this poster makes it look like she has a neck like E.T. lol. pic.twitter.com/Ah3dAF50lq— Brad Shankar (@bradshankar) September 18, 2017

Oh no. What have they done to Alicia Vikander's neck?! pic.twitter.com/sXmssqwOTM— DΛNΛ JΛMΞS JONΞS (@danajamesjones) September 19, 2017
I guess the fact that it's Alicia Vikander's neck that's the photoshopping issue in her poster counts as progress?— Tyler Ianuzi (@TylerIanuzi) September 19, 2017
Why did they do this? Does Alicia Vikander have an abnormally short neck and they overcompensated? pic.twitter.com/OCjGwEhNCc— keewa 🌹 (@keewa) September 18, 2017
Alicia Vikander's CGI-elongated neck is sexier than most women's buttholes— David W Barbee (@davidwbarbee) September 18, 2017
While it's quick and easy to be like "WTPhotoshop is going on here," some pointed out that this might just be what Alicia's neck looks like.
The Tomb Raider poster looks a bit off and people have been running with their gags, but Alicia Vikander DOES have a large powerful neck. pic.twitter.com/7DhfY7bnaw— Erin Kane (@aloudernoise) September 18, 2017
Alicia Vikander does appear to have a long neck generally, but please make it stop bending like that 😳 pic.twitter.com/hv5iU9a67X— Christine (@Ruff_Pup) September 19, 2017
So, what's going on with Alicia Vikander's neck in the Tomb Raider poster? Either it's become the victim of some wack Photoshop... or that's just what Alicia Vikander's neck looks like. Will she be a fire Lara Croft is the real question. Guess we'll find out in March 2018.
