First Tomb Raider Movie Feels Like The Rebooted Games

Warner Bros. has released the first full length trailer for the rebooted Tomb Raider movie, and if you’ve played the new Tomb Raider games, then it will feel very familiar. We all know the curse of video game movies, but this one looks like it may be able to escape it. Alicia Vikander looks picture perfect as Lara Croft, and the action again looks very franchise appropriate.

Head on up above to check out the first Tomb Raider trailer. It is set to hit theaters on March 16, 2018.

About Tomb Raider

The fate of humanity rests in her hands. Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft. Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar-winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner. The film¹s production begins on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the wildly popular videogame franchise from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal. Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster, 300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) and Daniel Wu (AMC’s Into the Badlands).
