Alicia Vikander brings Lara Croft to life in new ‘Tomb Raider’ trailer

Warner Bros. has released a new Tomb Raider trailer and Alicia Vikander looks poised to bring it as Lara Croft.

The video game-turned-big screen hero was brought to life by Angelina Jolie in a pair of films as the WB looks to get back on track with Vikander.

“Her destiny will be fulfilled. Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft. See Tomb Raider in cinemas this March. #TombRaider,” Warner Bros. tweeted when they debuted the video.

Check it out below.

Lara’s father, played by Dominic West (The Wire, Chicago, Punisher: War Zone), who serves as the focal point for this “Survivor” trailer.

Lara can’t seem to shake the fact that she keeps seeing her father everywhere and, once she discovers evidence of his hidden life’s work, will go to the ends of the Earth to find out what happened to him. Equally compelling is the other side of this coin, the villainous Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins). As Lara falls into the clutches of the deadly Trinity organization, she’ll have to use every skill at her disposal in order to survive and prevent a “global genocide.”

The full synopsis is at the bottom.

Daniel Wu (Warcraft) stars as a ship captain who works with Lara on her adventure.

Tomb Raider hits theaters on March 16, 2018.

Here’s the official synopsis for 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. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.
