There’s a new “Tomb Raider” trailer out, with more Lara Croft survival scenes than ever before. The film is set to release this Spring, and will star Alicia Vikander in her first appearance as the iconic Lara Croft.
In the film, Lara Croft is the daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was just a teen. Now a young woman in her twenties, Lara is navigating the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, while also attending college. Determined to forge her own path, Lara refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire, and doesn’t believe that he simply disappeared one day. In the film, it has been seven years since her father’s supposed death, but Lara refuses to move on and instead, leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination. This leads Lara to a mythical island, located somewhere off the coast of Japan.
The studio teased the film adding, “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.”
The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (“Ex Machina,” “The Danish Girl”), with Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”) directing. Oscar-winner Graham King (“The Departed”) produced the film under his GK Films banner. “Tomb Raider” also stars Dominic West (“Money Monster,” “300”), Walton Goggins (“The Hateful Eight,” “Django Unchained”) and Daniel Wu (AMC’s “Into the Badlands”).
Shooting on location in South Africa and the UK, Uthaug directs from a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. The director’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography George Richmond (“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”); production designer Gary Freeman (“Maleficent”); Oscar-nominated editor Stuart Baird (“Skyfall,” “Gorillas in the Mist”); and costume designer Tim Wonsik (key costumer, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”).
The film is set to hit theaters on March 16, 2018.
