First Full Trailer For ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot

Late last night, we finally got the first full trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander. So far, it’s better looking than the Angelina Jolie films, but that bar is pretty low. It’s interesting to see them leaning so heavily on the puzzle aspect of the games in the film, but one of the things I like about the character is that she’s human, and that is undermined by her seeming ability to leap 20 feet without a running start. I’m not saying no to this movie, but I’ve got a ways to go before it’s got me convinced.

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.
