Warner Bros. Pictures unveiled the first Tomb Raider trailer featuring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft.
The trailer is very similar to the 2013’s video game trailer, watch it after the break and let us know what you think in comments!
The action-adventure film is based on the 2013 video game of same name by Crystal Dynamics.
“Seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes.
Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.
Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.
If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name Tomb Raider.”
Paramount Pictures acquired the film rights for Tomb Raider in 1998, which was released as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider in 2001 & Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life in 2003, starring Angelina Jolie. It grossed a combined $450 million at worldwide box office.
Directed by Roar Uthaug and written by Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby, Marti Noxon, Evan Daugherty, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
Tomb Raider will hit theaters on March 16, 2018.
