When the first trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot arrived, I was a little underwhelmed. Love Alicia Vikander, but her turn as the iconic English archaeologist-adventurer looked a little boring. Cue this new trailer featuring a slowed-down cover of Destiny’s Child’s smash “Survivor” and consider me sold. All of a sudden, I believe Vikander as Lara Croft.
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.
Joining Vikander in the film are Dominic West (Money Monster), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight), Daniel Wu (Into the Badlands) and Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient). The Roar Uthaug-directed film arrives March 16. Check out the exciting new trailer below.
