First trailer and poster for the ‘Tomb Raider’ reboot

by Phil Wheat

After two previous films starring Angelina Jolie, the Tomb Raider franchise is getting a reboot, which takes its lead from the two most-recent Lara Croft video games. Directed by Roar Uthaug, who previously helmed the fantastic The Wave, this Tomb Raider stars Oscar winning actress Alicia Vikander in the titular role; alongside Dominic West (The Wire), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight) and Daniel Wu (Into the Badlands). The film sees Lara venture to a mythical island to solve the puzzle of her father’s mysterious death…

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 is released in cinemas on March 2018. Check out the first trailer and poster below:
