Alicia Vikander Slays as Lara Croft in 'Tomb Raider' Official Trailer -- Watch!
Alicia Vikander is stepping into the role of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider -- and absolutely slaying it!

Warner Bros. released the first action-packed trailer for the film on Tuesday, and we think it's safe to say, this is the 28-year-old actress' most badass role yet.

In the trailer, Vikander, dressed in a gray tank top and olive green pants, channels the fierceness of Angelina Jolie, who played the character in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and the sequel, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

"Close the tomb once and for all," a voiceover says, as Croft leaps, ducks and slides around various structures. "The fate of humanity is now in your hands."

Trailer Watch: Alicia Vikander Saves the World in “Tomb Raider”

Tomb Raider

An action-packed trailer for the Alicia Vikander-led “Tomb Raider” reboot has landed. It’s clear that there’s plenty of violence, chase scenes, and CGI in the potential franchise, but the spot kicks off with Lara Croft (Vikander) making a quiet promise to her father (Dominic West, “The Affair”).

Lara’s father, an adventurer, is missing. When she finds her way into his secret quarters, a video is waiting for her. “If you’re listening to this, then I must be dead,” her father says. “I found something — a tomb called the Mother of Death. If Trinity succeeds, our world is in danger. Promise me you will stop them.” “I promise,” Lara says, looking at the image of her father. And just like that, the fate of humankind rests on her shoulders.

The heroine heads off to a destination her father has marked on a map, an island that, according to the film’s official synopsis, “might be somewhere off the coast of Japan.” To get there Lara will have to travel right in the middle of what’s called the Devil’s Sea. The trailer shows just how worthy of that nickname the sea is.

Angelina Jolie previously led a “Tomb Raider” franchise, starring in 2001’s “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and 2003’s “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.” The films are based on one of the best-selling video games of all time.

Vikander’s “Tomb Raider” hits theaters March 16, 2018. She can currently be seen in “Tulip Fever,” a period romance in theaters now. The Oscar winner had two films screen at this month’s Toronto International Film Festival, Lisa Langseth’s “Euphoria,” a drama about two sisters, and “Submergence,” a story of two lovers who embark on dangerous missions across the globe from each other.

Check out the trailer and a feature about what playing the iconic character means to Vikander below.

Alicia Vikander Teases Her Role as Lara Croft In The 2018 Reboot

  • LRM Online
Tomb Raider has come a long way since the first game was released back in 1996 for PC, Playstation and Sega Saturn (remember those?). It is one of the best selling video game franchises of all time. Then in 2001, Paramount Pictures brought the character to life in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the sequel Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. Both films starred Angelina Jolie as the adventuress Lara Croft.

Now based of the 2013 action-adventure game, comes the Tomb Raider reboot directed by Roar Uthaug. The film stars Alicia Vikander, Hannah John-Kamen and Walter Goggins. Vikander will be playing the role of Lara Croft who starts off as an ordinary woman working a day job in London. She finds a clue that leads her on a quest to search for her presumed dead father, played by Dominic West.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Vikander talked about her character:

Tomb Raider Reboot: Alicia Vikander Is Lara Croft In New Set Photos!

  • LRM Online
The past year hasn’t been incredibly kind on the video game movie genre. Warcraft underperformed domestically, Assassin’s Creed flopped, and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the lowest performing film in North America for the franchise. Yet despite these numerous speed bumps, we, ironically enough, haven’t seen much of a slowdown from Hollywood. There seems to be a general consensus that none of these films weren’t given the best opportunities to succeed (i.e., they weren’t that good).

With those potential flicks out of the way, it opens up a new upcoming generation of video game movies. Leading the pack in this new round of ol’ college tries is none other than the reboot of the beloved franchise, Tomb Raider. Last time this series hit the big screen was in 2003’s Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, starring Angelina Jolie. While the film

The Highest Grossing Video Game Movies of All-Time

Luke Owen keeps track of the biggest video game movies…

To go along with our Highest Grossing Superhero Movies of All-Time list, I felt we should also keep tabs on the video game movie adaptation. Since their debut in 1993, they’ve mostly come with a bad reputation, bad reviews and often bad box office results. However, some have been genuine successes. Below are two lists collated from BoxOfficeMojo with the domestic and global takings for video game movie adaptations.

Note: We’ve not included Pixels as it’s not directly based on a game, but we’re happy to add it in if enough people complain (it would be high in both lists)…

How Red Dwarf: The Movie failed to become a reality

Luke Owen looks back at Red Dwarf: The Movie, and how it never got made…

In 1998, BBC decided to pull the plug on Red Dwarf after its eighth series. The final series, aired in 1999, climaxed with an episode titled “Only The Good”, which ended with the words ‘The End’, before being replaced with ‘The Smeg It Is’. And that would be correct, as this was not to be the end of the road for Lister, Rimmer, Cat, Kochanski and Kryten, as co-creator Doug Naylor had big plans for the future of Red Dwarf – he was going to make a movie.

Initially Naylor had planned to do a ninth series of the show, but the BBC rejected his proposal. While it’s not known exactly why the series was turned down, the official Red Dwarf website noted that they now had more than 52 episodes of the show in the can,
