Tomb Raider Reboot Unearths an Action-Packed Trailer!!

Sorry, Minions!  Nearly forgot this one!

Last night, Warner Bros dug up a fresh trailer for their Tomb Raider reboot.  As should be expected, this looks to borrow heavily from the game’s own reboot series and leaves that Angelina Jolie stuff in the catacombs to rust.

Of course, this time around, Alicia Vikander plays the titular, ass-kicking heroine, and looks to be in top form, as such.

Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar-winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner. The film’s production begins on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the wildly popular videogame franchise from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.

Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster, 300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) and Daniel Wu (AMC¹s Into the Badlands).

The movie hits theaters next March!
