Alicia Vikander’s Lara Croft prepares to face her destiny in Warner Bros.’ reboot of the popular video game franchise turned feature film Tomb Raider. Warner Bros. dropped the second official trailer for the upcoming film and it looks absolutely fantastic with Destiny Child’s Survivor playing in the background.
The trailer begins by introducing us to Lara Croft and the inner struggles she faces with the apparent death of her father. Her devotion to her father leads her on a journey into the middle of the Devil’s Sea where she will face all kinds of danger and adventure. She will discover a fabled tomb on a mythical island off the coast of Japan.
Lara Croft will put her mettle to the test as the global organization known as Trinity looks to commit global genocide. Will she be able to stop them?
Warner Bros. official synopsis of the film:
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. 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.
Leaving everything she knows behind, Lara goes 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 will hit theaters on March 16, 2018. It is directed by Roar Uthaug. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, 300’s Dominic West as Lord Richard Croft, Django Unchained’s Walton Goggins as Mathias Vogel, Into the Badlands’ Daniel Wu as Lu Ren, and The English Patient’s Kristin Scott Thomas as Ana Miller.
