The first trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft has officially been released.
The reboot draws inspiration from the 2013 video game as it finds Lara as a bike courier in London, taking college classes rather than running the business empire of her long-missing father until she decides to investigate his disappearance at his last-known location: a tomb on an island located somewhere off the coast of Japan. The film is set to serve as an origin story for Lara as it finds her forced to discover the courage within and become the heroic archaeologist we know as the Tomb Raider.
In addition to the trailer, the Warner Bros. has also released a featurette taking you behind the scenes with Vikander as she transforms into Lara Croft. You can check out the first trailer and the featurette for Tomb Raider below.
Tomb Raider is an MGM and Warner Bros. co-production with GK Films. Graham King produced the film from a script written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Gary Barber and Tim Headington also produced with Drew Crevello, Cassidy Lange, Patrick McCormick and Denis O’Sullivan serving as exec producers.
In addition to Vikander, the film also stars Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Daniel Wu, and Dominic West as Richard Croft. Here’s the 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 is currently slated to hit theaters on March 16, 2018. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the Tomb Raider reboot as we learn it.
