Discover Lara’s journey in the first Tomb Raider trailer

Tomb Raider trailer - Alicia Vikander

Lara Croft is finally back on the big screen. After the trailer teaser yesterday, fans have patiently waited for the new trailer to drop. Now, Warner Bros finally unveiled the Tomb Raider trailer upon the world.

Check it out!

So those of you who have played the Tomb Raider reboot will recognize some of the visuals in the new trailer. The jungle setting, outfit, bow and arrow, and shipwreck were all a part of the recent video game reboot. On the other hand, the storyline is much different than the game. In the video game, Lara is on an expedition to find a lost kingdom in Japan. Unfortunately for her, a storm causes her frigate to crash out at sea. She then finds herself stranding on an island where she must fight and survive on the island. Thus, beginning Lara’s journey into the survivor that we know and love.

As we found out from the Tomb Raider trailer, Lara’s journey begins when she discovers a video from her late father. He tells her that she must stop “Trinity” from discovering a tomb called the “Mother of Death”. Only time will tell if the “Mother of Death” is the same as the Sun Queen character from the game.

So what did you think of the Tomb Raider trailer? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below!

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.

Tomb Raider raids theaters on March 16, 2018.
