The omens are good
Update: Hot on the heels of the poster below, we can now confirm that the first trailer is coming tomorrow…
Previously: The first poster for the upcoming film adaption of Tomb Raider has been released and adds more evidence to the growing pot that Alicia Vikander is probably the perfect choice to play Lara Croft.
One of the world’s most recognisable heroes, Lara Croft, returns to the big screen next year played by Oscar winning actress, Alicia Vikander, and we’re delighted to share with you the first poster. A mythical island awaits, as Lara ventures into the unknown to solve the puzzle of her father’s mysterious death. The highly anticipated action-adventure comes from exciting director, Roar Uthaug (The Wave), and also stars Dominic West (The Wire) and Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight).
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone.
Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.
Tomb Raider is due to arrive in UK cinemas in March 2018. We’re expecting the first trailer to land very soon.
