The latest trailer for Warner Bros.’ Tomb Raider has been released, giving us an assortment of new looks at the film. Check it out below.
Though the movie doesn’t look spectacular as a whole, I remain optimistic about the project. Alicia Vikander is a wonderful actor and will bring many levels to Croft as a character. The set pieces and visuals look decent, and the story appears to be solid thus far. While I won’t get too excited about this one, I’m intrugued as to what it can bring to the terrible track record of video game movies.
“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. 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. Leaving everything she knows behind, Lara goes 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.”
Joining Vikander in Tomb Raider is Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, and Kristin Scott Thomas. The film is directed by Roar Uthaug.
