The film reboot for Tomb Raider is getting closer and closer, and at this point, it looks like we can finally be calme: they don’t seem to be ruining the video game stories one more time.
In the new trailer launched by Warner Bros. we can see the new Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander), facing an island full of enemies, risking her life with the only objective of solving the mysterious disappearance of her father. Take a look:
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.
Tomb Raider has been directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave). The film is set to premiere on March 16, 2018. If you want to see more about it, check the first trailer here.
