Alicia Vikander Runs Out of Answers in Mysterious Short for Vogue
Swedish Star Teams Up Again With Niclas Larssen, Anna Wintour in Sequel to 'Magic Diner'
Feb 15, 2018
Two years ago, Swedish actor Alicia Vikander appeared in "Magic Diner" a mysterious short film for Vogue, in which she sought help from a fortune telling machine that she found in a diner, which dispenses cryptic, almost smart-alecky responses to her deep questions.
Now, the "Tomb Raider" star and the same team (director Niclas Larsson and production company Iconoclast) reunite for a sequel. This time, Vikander's star has risen and she's on the front page of all the papers. Even the Nobel Prize Committee want to talk to her! But, alone in her hotel room in the Ritz-Carlton New York, she's anxious and panics when her fortune telling machine runs out of cards. Once again, Vogue editor Anna Wintour plays a cameo, arriving at the end of the film with some "eggs." It's all rather mysterious, but incredibly stylish, which presumably is the point.
