This new movie is a reboot of the films starring Angelina Jolie which were based on the video game of the same name. Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was 13, and is now a young woman of 21 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. The tagline, "Her Legend Begins" lets fans know that this film is based on the newer games in the long-running series which explore Croft as a young woman. The studio also released a poster which you can check out below.
Tomb Raider is directed by Roar Uthaug, written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and stars Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Walton Goggins, and Daniel Wu. 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. The film opens in theaters on March 16, 2018.
