A Tomb Raider teaser has been released ahead of its first full length trailer featuring the first clips of Alicia Vikander in the role of the iconic female adventurer, Lara Croft. Also released is a new film poster both of which showcase Croft showcasing that inner strength that we know so well, which can be seen at the end of this article. Both sneak peeks are exciting for fans of the adventurer.
The teaser trailer seen below is the first hint we’ve had at the action up close, with the video tomorrow being the upcoming film’s official debut. The film adaptation takes place during the origins story of Croft as seen in the 2013 reboot game series that originally came out on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

The Tomb Raider teaser trailer features the first few clips of Vikander in the role of Lara. Similar to the 2013 video game reboot, the film will take place off the coast of Japan as seen in the official synopsis for the film:
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.
Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind 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.
Tomb Raider opens in theater March 16th of next year. Are you excited to see the Legend of Lara Croft be reborn?
