Warner Bros. released their first trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft.
The trailer runs for two minutes and packs a ton of action. It has all the classic hallmarks of Tomb Raider including solving puzzles, exploring tombs, and putting bad guys on ice. There is even a huge twist involving Lara’s father. Not sure why they gave that away in the first trailer though. Seems like it could have been an actual surprise.
The trailer introduces us to the tomb called the Mother of Death and its located in the middle of the Devil’s Sea! Talk about some great names that just ooze danger and evil!
Here’s the official synopsis from Warner Bros.:
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.
Tomb Raider is being directed by Roar Uthaug and produced by Graham King. Along with Vikander, the movie stars Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Dominic West, and Daniel Wu.
The movie is based off the video game franchise from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics, and Eidos Montreal.
Tomb Raider is expected to hit theaters on June 18, 2017.
