Empire releases new ‘Tomb Raider’ photo: Alicia Vikander taking aim with bow and arrow

The new issue of Empire is now on sale and previews a reboot of Tomb Raider, with Alicia Vikander in the role as a young Ms. Lara Croft — check it out below.

Fans will certainly notice a big change from the Angelina Jolie version and Vikander confirmed big changes: “We asked, ‘What are the famous traits of this person?’” recalls Vikander in the new issue.

“‘How can we demonstrate them in the story, but make her feel like a young woman in 2018?’”

The new film will be a prequel, beginning with Croft working as a cycle courier in London, and it’s not some priceless lost artifact that sets her off on her journey, but a quest to find her missing father.

Norweigan filmmaker Roar Uthaug is directing the reboot, which will also have Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, and Dominic West joining Vikander in the cast.

West is set to play Lara’s father, Lord Richard Croft. Hannah John-Kamen will play a character named Sarah.

If you wanted your copy days before everyone else, with super-sweet limited edition covers to boot, you’d want to subscribe to Empire here, of course.

Tomb Raider  is set to hit theaters on March 16, 2018.

Here’s the Tomb Raider plot synopsis:

“Seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes. Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.”
