Alicia Vikander’s transformation into daredevil adventurer Lara Croft is one of the reasons why Tomb Raider is one of 2018’s most anticipated releases, and the brand new trailer is freaking awesome!
Check it out below:
Here’s the synopsis:
Finding a hidden message from her adventurer father Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West), intrepid university student Lara Croft leaves London and travels to the far east in search of adventure. But what she finds is a sinister conspiracy that could end the world, and soon Lara is forced into a breakneck chase for survival as she works to outwit and outrun a dangerous adversary.
Packed with nail-biting action scenes the trailer shows Vikander jumping head first into the danger which finds her avoiding tomb ridden obstacles and making one hell of a leap of faith across the crumbling ruins of a Lancaster bomber. While she may have made a career for herself with intense dramatic performances, the actress has totally transformed herself into the fearless archaeologist. Absolutely shredded, Vikander has really taken on the ‘leap before you look’ attitude of Lara Croft, and she seems particularly proficient with the characters trademark pickaxe.
Framed as an origin story, Tomb Raider will find Croft untested, and this will undoubtedly raise the stakes as she has to fight to survive. An awesome supporting cast including the likes of Daniel Wu, Walton Goggins and Dominic West are along for the ride, and the very amusing Nick Frost pops up for an extended cameo.
Tomb Raider will definitely be one to watch out for when it is released on March 15 in New Zealand and Australia and on March 16, 2018 in the US and UK.
