Tomb Raider | First Trailer

Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft in the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise. Here’s a first look.

Based on the popular mid-nineties video game of the same name, Tomb Raider returns to the big screen as the franchise undergoes a reboot.

Angelina Jolie starred in Lara Croft’s first cinematic appearance back in 2001 but now Alicia Vikander (Ex_Machina) takes the lead in this latest film, due in cinemas in March 2018.

About Tomb Raider | Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous.
