We already know for quite some time a new Tomb Raider movie is in the works. A few months ago we brought you some shots of Alicia Vikander in character and revealed the very first plot details. Today, quite out of the blue, the first trailer for the upcoming movie was released. With the release of the trailer the movie’s marketing campaign seems to have started. The official logo and poster of the movie were released as well. An exact release date for the movie is still unknown. Purely speculation, but we think an March 2018 release date is very likely.
The trailer seems to confirm what we already expected judging from the first stills. The movie will be a direct adaptation of the 2013 Tomb Raider videogame. The trailer seems to capture the atmosphere and style that game brought to the franchise; vulnerability and survival elements. I can’t say I’m disappointed. Along with the trailer a short featurette was released in which Vikander is interviewed what it all took to become Lara Croft. Give both videos a go below and share with us your thoughts!
