Could 2018 be the year, movie game adaptations finally get the elusive critically acclaimed movie they seek? Today Warner Bros. has unveiled a brand new Tomb Raider UK Trailer, Lara Croft’s destiny is been fulfilled. Like the Destiny’s Child pop song, she is a ‘survivor’.
Brawler. Hunter. Survivor. Lara Croft is back. Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander stars in this fresh adaptation of the action-adventure. Join one of the world’s most formidable heroes as she journeys into the unknown to solve her father’s mysterious death while fighting to find her place in the world – could this be the making of her?
Will it be third time lucky? The Swedish actress will the second incarnation of Croft, with this new adventure promising to be based on 2013 rebooted gritty game. Compared to the previous trailer, the new one delves a little deeper into her origins and her determination to find her fathers whereabouts. The action is there, so what about her daddy?
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 now has the confirmed UK, Irish and the USA release date of 16th March. Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, and Kristin Scott Thomas also star.
