Are you ready for Lara Croft on the big screen? Alicia Vikander stars as Croft in the first official trailer for Tomb Raider. In the trailer, Croft is told, “Your father’s gone. You can pick up where he left off. I see so much of him in you.”
The trailer is filled with action, which should be enough to get fans excited for this movie. We all know movies based on video games don’t perform that well, but maybe this will be the exception. After all, it’s been nearly 17 years since Angelina Jolie starred in the original Tomb Raider. The movie did not sit well with critics, but it did take home over $270 million at the box office.
This reboot starring Vikander is directed by Roar Uthaug based on a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of response this movie gets from critics. Vikander is an award-winning actress who routinely receives praise from critics. Will this be her first mistake?
Watch the trailer below. This movie will hit theaters March 16, 2018.
