HER LEGEND BEGINS…
The action packed trailer shows Croft (Alicia Vikander) start her first mission in finding her missing father, face dangers and finding out a terrible secret.
The franchise returns after nearly a decade and a half. Angelina Jolie played the iconic character in two films, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) and in Lara Croft: The Cradle of Life. Alicia Vikander strikingly makes Croft more human and more emotion in her face than Jolie’s stoic and cool bravado, which reflects the evolution of the video game as well.
And like the video game, there are some scenes in the movie that are exact copies from the video game. The shipwreck and Lara leaping across a ruined airplane are just some of the video game references.
The fate of humanity rests in her hands. Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft. Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar-winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner. The film¹s production begins on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the wildly popular videogame franchise from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal. Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster, 300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) and Daniel Wu (AMC¹s Into the Badlands).
Warner Bros. has scheduled the film’s release for March 16, 2018.
