Warner Brothers has released the second trailer for the rebooted Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander as she sets out to solve the mystery of her missing father and getting more than she bargained for.
This incarnation of Tomb Raider and Lara Croft is based more on the rebooted 2013 video game and will serve as an origin story having nothing in common with the two Angelina Jolie films.
As fun and exciting as this Tomb Raider movie looks it will have plenty to prove once in theaters. Movies based off of video games do not have a proven track record as most of us know.
Tomb Raider is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug, from a screenplay by Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
Tomb Raider hits theaters on March 16th.
Official Synopsis for Tomb Raider:
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, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. 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.
Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind 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.
