See Alicia Vikander in the new trailer for TOMB RAIDER

Swedish actress Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider film, and a new trailer has been released.

Directed by Norway’s Roar Uthaug (The Wave), Tomb Raider is an ‘origin story’ of Lara Croft, who is a 21-year-old bike courier and the daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished seven years ago. Rather than taking control of her father’s global empire, she decides to solve his disappearance. Lara leaves everything behind and heads to her father’s last known destination, an island off the coast of Japan.

Tomb Raider is based on a successful video game series, and is considered to be closely connected to the games.

Tomb Raider will be released in the US on the 16th of March 2018.
