Tomb Raider Poster, Teaser Revealed

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the first poster, and teaser trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider film starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, has been revealed. Check out the poster and teaser below!

More about Tomb Raider

In this poster, Lara Croft is holding an ax, which the character can use in the video game franchise that this film is based upon. Specifically, she can use it in the reboot of the Tomb Raider video game franchise, the 2013 game named after the franchise. This might be a nod to how this film is rebooting the film arm of the Tomb Raider franchise. In the teaser, Lara Croft performs various acts of derring-do. There’s also a brief shot of Daniel Wu as Lu Ren, whose role in the movie is still mostly not clear to the viewer (other than the possible romantic male lead).

According to ComingSoon.net, Tomb Raider’s synopsis is: “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.”

Tomb Raider will be coming to a theater near you on 16 March 2018.
