All you ‘Tomb Raider‘ fans out there better be excited for this one. The fine folks at Warner Bros. have revealed the first look at Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft.
The photos, first shared by Vanity Fair, show the actress wearing those famous cargo pants and tank top on an island off the coast of Japan. This updated version of the franchise will reportedly go in a completely different direction than the original Tomb Raider film.
This movie will focus on Croft’s origins and her first mission as an archaeologist. Director Roar Uthaug told GQ that this film will be entirely different than the 2001 version starring Angelina Jolie…
“As an origin story, this movie will introduce Lara as a young woman who hasn’t yet found her way and her place in the world; a young woman with great spirit and potential. We follow her struggles and her journey toward becoming the person she was meant to be and earning the role of ‘Tomb Raider.’”
Sounds interesting. It’s scheduled to hit theaters March 16, 2018, so we still have a solid year to wait. We’ll be patiently waiting for the first trailer.
