The first trailer has been released for Tomb Raider, a reboot of the movie franchise based on the hit 2013 video game…which was itself a reboot of the game series.

The movie stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) as Lara Croft, the daughter of an adventurer who sets off on a quest to the last known destination of her father, who mysteriously disappeared years earlier.

You can read more about the new Tomb Raider and see the first trailer, a “Becoming Lara Croft” video, and a poster 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.

Starring alongside Vikander is Daniel Wu (Into the Badlands, Warcraft), Hannah John-Kamen (Killjoys, Ready Player One), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Vice Principals), and Dominic West (300, The Wire). The movie is directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave, Cold Prey) from a screenplay written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel, Gotham City Sirens).

Tomb Raider will be released in theaters on March 16th, 2018.


The fate of humanity rests in her hands. Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft.
