Warner Bros. has released an action-packed new trailer for Tomb Raider, giving us an incredible new look at Alicia Vikander’s Lara Croft and her deadly adventure.
The trailer gives us a better idea of what to expect from the Tomb Raider reboot, as Lara attempts to find out what happened to her missing father while taking down a dark organization known as the Trinity. Admittedly, I wasn’t convinced by the first Tomb Raider trailer, but this second look at the film promises a more concise and entertaining action movie. At the very least, Alicia Vikander looks badass as Lara Croft and the visuals appear to be improving as we get closer to the films release date.
Check out the trailer below:
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.
