Tomb Raider


 

The first trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider movie reboot is here, and if you enjoyed the most recent Tomb Raider games, you’ll be pleased with the grittier, more survival-driven direction the film is taking.

Tomb Raider stars Academy Award-winner Alicia Vikander  as Lara Croft, who’s traveling to the Devil’s Sea to pick up where her father’s studies left off. Unfortunately, Lara’s ship wrecks in a huge storm, leaving her stranded on a deserted island with a bunch of scary dudes that are all trying to kill her as she (probably) unravels the mystery of the island. Also, she makes a lot of crazy leaps and hangs from cliffs and stuff.

If that sounds familiar, that’s probably because it’s almost the exact same plot of Crystal Dynamics’ 2013 Tomb Raider reboot, on which the new film is based. That game revealed Lara’s brutal, bloody origins as an adventurer. While the new movie definitely has Lara performing some crazy stunts, it does at least look to adopt the game’s more down-to-earth and survival-focused tone, at least more than the previous Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movies starring Angelina Jolie. You know, besides the part with the evil cult worshiping a malevolent, magical god.

The film also stars Daniel Wu, Kristin Scott Thomas, Dominic West, and Walton Goggins doing what he does best: playing a creepy bad guy.

You can check out the trailer below.

Tomb Raider is coming to theaters March 16th, 2018.

Tomb Raider movie looks insanely close to the game in its first trailer

If you didn't get enough of seeing Lara Croft get beat up in the games, now there's a movie about that, too.
