Every legend has its beginning, and a new TV spot for Tomb Raider gives us another look at the epic adventure that Alicia Vikander’s Lara Croft will go on in the new film.
This latest cinematic interpretation of Tomb Raider is based on the recently rebooted video game series, which presented fans with an origin story for the famous archaeologist and adventurer as she seeks to finish a quest that her late father began years ago.

Here is the film’s official 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. 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 stars Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, Walton Goggins as Mathias Vogel, Hannah John-Kamen as Sophie, Daniel Wu as Lu Ren, and Dominic West as Lord Richard Croft.
Tomb Raider is scheduled to hit theaters on March 16, 2018.
5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe
World building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.
Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.
