The latest trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot, starring Alicia Vikander, sees the movie looking more like the recent game releases than ever.
Seriously, Lara, be careful at that waterfall, OK? We’ve seen what could happen to you, and it was grisly…
Lara Croft has come a long way from being a bunch of polygons in a 1990s game, and even from the Angelina Jolie incarnation of the early 00s. From what we’ve seen so far of this reboot we’re dealing with a grittier Lara, and it’s brilliant!
Going back to the beginning of her discovering her adventurer ways, this Tomb Raider sees Lara as a directionless 21-year-old who eventually decides to explore her father’s disappearance of some seven years earlier. She soon uncovers something much bigger than the disappearance of one man – and finds her calling along the way.
As well as Vikander, the movie also stars the likes of Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu and Kristin Scott Thomas.
Tomb Raider opens in Australian cinemas on March 15.
