Watch the First Trailer for the New ‘Tomb Raider,’ Which Actually looks Great


It’s been nearly 15 years since the iconic Lara Croft, hit the big screen and now she’s back in the form of a new reboot that actually looks extremely promising.

MGM and Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. have released the first trailer for Tomb Raider, which features Alicia Vikander as the iconic video game heroine basically kicking ass, solving mysteries, escaping death, and yes, raiding tombs.

Loosely based on the 2013 video game reboot of the franchise, the movie follows the rebellious Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) as she heads out on a quest to find her missing father, only to find herself stuck on on a mythical island —which forces her to adapt to survive.

Tomb Raider is set to hit theaters March 2018. Watch the trailer below.


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.

I’m glad that it seems to follow the source material heavily, but I still don’t feel confident. Whilst I have no doubt that it will surpass the Angelina Jolie movies, I still expect the outcome to be a mundane action movie flaunting questionable editing and pacing choices. If the Assassin’s Creed movie has taught us two things, it’s that a trailer can look great but the final product can still be poor, and that movie creators should steer clear of developing adaptations of beloved franchises, and instead focus on original works.

I want to be proven wrong, and I would love for this movie to be a suspenseful thrill ride from start to finish, but given that we have NEVER had a good quality movie adaptation of any game, I naturally have no faith in the concept.

I’m with Harry, this looks pretty by the numbers to me. I’m expecting a 5/10 at best.
