Warner Bros. has released the first official trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot. The studio previously released two short teasers yesterday, but this latest look gives fans a deep look into the video game adaptation. Starring Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl), Tomb Raider is based off the bestselling video game series about young female adventurer Lara Croft who explores ancient tombs and lost civilizations. The studio is hoping to successfully reboot the series after Angelina Jolie’s two ill-received Tomb Raider movies back in 2001 and 2003. And luckily it looks as though Vikander and director Roar Uthaug (The Wave) have found a great balance between pleasing Tomb Raider fans while also creating a strong female action hero for a modern audience.
Tomb Raider also stars Walton Goggins, Dominic West, and Nick Frost. The film will swing into U.S. theaters on March 16th, 2018. Check out the new trailer and poster below.
