‘Tomb Raider’ trailer centers on Alicia Vikander and lots of action

Warner Brother has released the first Tomb Raider trailer, a new reboot based on the best-selling series of video games.

The adventure series center on the rebellious Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) as she travels to a fabled tomb on a mythical island to uncover the mystery behind her father’s disappearance.

The trailer is jammed packed full of action as Croft follows the inspiration of her adventurous father (Dominic West) and taking on untold risks and danger in the process. Revealed in the footage is Walton Goggins, the film’s antagonist and a fan favorite from Justified.

Check out the full synopsis at the bottom.

A new featurette focuses on Vikander and her transformation. Collider notes that “…it’s great to see Uthaug’s use of practical sets and stunts instead of shooting everything against a greenscreen. But the real focus is on Vikander, who went through a rigorous physical transformation to morph into the incredibly strong and agile Lara Croft.”

Check that out below.

Directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave), the film also stars Daniel Wu and Hannah John-Kamen will play a character named Sarah.

Tomb Raider opens 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.
