With just two months to go until its release, Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures have released the all-new Tomb Raider trailer featuring Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander and based on the popular video game series.
Under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), Tomb Raider is a reboot of the film franchise that starred Angeline Jolie as Lara. In this version, Lara sets off on her adventure at the behest of her dead father, who left her a message before his untimely demise. On her way to a mysterious tomb called Mother of Death, her ship wrecks, and she finds herself stuck on an island with a bunch of very angry inhabitants.
Check out the new trailer for Tomb Raider below:
This new trailer focuses more on the theme of family than the previous trailers. Fitting, considering the newer Tomb Raider games often focused on the Croft family, its legacy, and background. Titled: “Survivor” (there is a cover of Destiny Child’s song to accompany it) the trailer also is a showcase for the always reliable and charismatic Dominic West. The film looks to be taking its source material seriously, often adapting set pieces directly from Square Enix’s video game reboot of the same name.
What’s to say of star Alicia Vikander? She looks to be going above and beyond in this film. Each teaser and set photo have the Oscar-winning actress performing high-flying stunts and balancing acts.
The film also stars Daniel Wu (Warcraft), Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient), and Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight) as the villainous Mathias Vogel.
Tomb Raider will hit theaters on March 16th, 2018.
