New ‘Tomb Raider’ Trailer Offers Up Some Plot Points

Warner Bros. has released the second official trailer for the live-action Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft. This new trailer actually focuses on the plot more than just the film’s action set pieces, so you get a better idea about what the movie is all about.

Quite frankly, it looks like it will echo some of the narrative from the rebooted Tomb Raider game from Crystal Dynamics that came out a few years back.

You can see the similarities for yourself by checking out the new Tomb Raider trailer above. Tomb Raider hits theaters on March 16, 2018.

About Tomb Raider

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 film’s 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 (AMC¹s Into the Badlands).
