Watch Lara Croft in action in the new Tomb Raider trailer

We have two more months until Alicia Vikander’s debut as the iconic video game heroine Lara Croft on the big screen. Warner Bros. released a new Tomb Raider trailer with more action and plot on what Lara will face in the film. In an eerie version of Destiny’s Child’s Survivor, we see Lara in search for her missing father and uncover an organization her father was part of, but must now take down.

Like the video game, Lara is thrown into situations where he must fight menacing men, cross rivers, solve puzzles, and just survive the jungle. The trailer looks pretty good.

Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful EightDjango Unchained), Daniel Wu (AMC’s Into the Badlands) and Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient).

 

Tomb Raider will hit theaters on March 16th, 2018.

Tomb Raider Official Synopsis:

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.
