The new trailer gives us some backstory and shows more of Alicia Vikander's portrayal of everyone's favourite video game heroine.
Originally a successful video game franchise, "Tomb Raider" was then adapted into a film crossover with the original role portrayed by Angelina Jolie in the first two films. After constantly seeing images of her father, Lara Croft discovers something about him that ultimately leads her to what is called the Devil's Sea and into an island somewhere in the Pacific. Intelligent, like her father, she's forced to work alongside the villainous Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins); a man who has been searching for the tomb that she finds over the past seven years. She also learns of a shadowy organization called Trinity that's "looking to start a global genocide".More news: Twitter to Tell Users About Kremlin-Linked Trolls
The full synopsis is at the bottom. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or goal, 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.
Directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave) from a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons, the film also features Dominic West, Daniel Wu, and Kristin Scott Thomas.More news: Pope Francis Apologizes To Sexual Abuse Victims, But Still Backs Bishop
"Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen". All this after she sets out to carve her own path rather than taking over the reins of her father's global empire. As confusing as it sounds, Tomb Raider's recent resurgence has risen to critical acclaim, with 2 games inspiring the latest film starring Academy Award-wining actress Alicia Vikander. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name Tomb Raider.
