After this weird back and forth of Warner Bros. putting out the trailer for the new Tomb Raider film on instagram and then taking it off again; it’s finally here! Based off the super popular video game reboot and starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft; this film looks to erase the Angelina Jolie sins of the past. Follow Croft as she hunts, forages, runs, scrapes her knees, and shoots arrows in this semi-action packed trailer. Even though it doesn’t particularly wow me, I love the game and will likely still see it.
Watch the trailer below.
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).
