Lara Croft returns in the form of Swedish born actress Alicia Vikander as two new stills emerge, fresh from the production of TOMB RAIDER, courtesy of Vanity Fair. It hits Australian cinemas on 15 March 2018 from Roadshow Films, and US theatres on 16 March from Warner.
It’s been a whopping 21 years since Lara Croft first debuted in digital form in the first Tomb Raider game. With numerous sequels, and two feature films starring Angelina Jolie under her belt, Lara got an upgrade in the last few years with a series of sophisticated and critically praised games. The more recent games appear to serve as the basis for Croft’s look in the new film
Directed by Roar Uthaug and co-starring Dominic West, Walton Goggins, and Daniel Wu, the film picks up seven years after the disappearance of Croft’s father, and like many modern day superheroes, she has refused to take the mantle of of his global business empire. Working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes, she ultimately decides to explore the tomb where her father was last seen, somewhere on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.
