Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures have been a little slow to reveal much footage from their upcoming Tomb Raider reboot starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), but today we’re getting another look at Lara Croft in action!
Total Film revealed a series of new photos from the upcoming action-adventure film. Some of the images have Vikander performing some daring sequences as the legendary tomb raider herself: Lara Croft. There are four images in all, consisting of a bow-wielding Croft, and co-star Daniel Wu, who is playing Lu Ren in the film. We also get Vikander wielding a less intimidating weapon in the form of a flashlight as she explores a cavernous tomb(?).
Check out the new Tomb Raider images below:
The new Tomb Raider reboot follows Lara Croft, 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.
When the first trailer landed, it hinted at the movie’s narrative of Lara searching for her missing father, played by Dominic West. Since this is Lara’s first adventure though, she’s likely in for a tough time, especially when she goes up against the film’s villain, played by Walton Goggins.
Tomb Raider rolls into theaters on March 18, 2018.
