The film adaptation of the famous Tomb Raider video game franchise got its first trailer late last night, and we get our first look at Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft. But does she pull off the role?
First off, this isn’t a reboot of the Angelina Jolie films, but rather the recent video games. The story follows Lara returning to her father’s company in an effort to find out what he had discovered that was so valuable. We learn he made an incredible discovery, and all of the information is hidden in his ‘tomb’ where he is buried.
Walton Goggins (The Shield) plays the main villain and Dominic McNulty (The Wire) plays Lara’s father. It looks how we expected it to look so far, but there are still a number of questions that need to be answered. It is a video game adaptation film, after all, and those haven’t faired to well in the past.
Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think.
