Tomb Raider Reboot Movie Gets First Teaser And Poster; Full Trailer Arrives Tomorrow

Her legend begins.


The first poster for the upcoming reboot of Tomb Raider has been released, alongside a short teaser. The poster shows star Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, looking very intense and holding a dangerous bladed weapon, while the teaser reveals that the full trailer arrives tomorrow, September 19. Check the teaser out below, and the poster at the end of this story:

The film also stars Dominic West (The Wire) as Lara's father, Walton Goggins (Sons of Anarchy) as the villain, and Daniel Wu (Warcraft) as a ship captain who works with Lara on her adventure. Tomb Raider is directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave) and hits theaters on March 16, 2018.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Vikander spoke about taking on the role of Lara Croft and what would set her apart from both the Lara of the games, as well as Angelina Jolie's previous movie portrayal. "She has all the fierce, tough, curious, intelligent traits," she said. "But we've stripped away all of her experience. She hasn't gone on an adventure just yet. She thought she was a stuck up businessperson living in the modern youth culture of suburban London, but then this whole box of information. This is the beginning."

This movie is not tied directly to the games, of which no new ones have been announced. A sequel to Rise of the Tomb Raider is likely, however, as the 2013 reboot has been described as part of a trilogy. A leak last year suggested the name of the third game is Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

she doesn't look like lara croft at all, and i'm talking about the 2013 lara croft. i know a lot of people didnt like the old tomb raider movies, but we can all agree that angelina jolie was the right choice for the role. anyway... alicia vikander is a great actress, and i'm sure the movie is gonna be great as well so... it's all good, looking forward to the full trailer.

Is this a fan-made poster dredged from DeviantArt? Or possibly a poster made to intentionally mock fan-made posters?

It just doesn't look real.

@BondSense: It's not the poster, but the poster for the poster. The actual poster will look better.

That is one long neck.

That does not look like TR. She also, lets just say -not the right body type. Just looks like someone made a movie and put the words TR on the poster.

Giraffe neck. No butt crack. Is she human or is this Darren Aronofsky's Tomb Raider?

She doesn't really have the Lara Croft "look". I was going to say she is too young but apparently she is 28?! I dunno even Angelina Jolie had more of a lara croft look.

@gamingdevil800: I'd say she has more of the TR 2013/ROTTR Lara Croft look than Lara Croft from the original games.

@danny324: 2013 Lara Croft looks more mature than this actress tbh.

Weird. Doesn't look like Tomb Raider or Lara Croft at all. No influences. Looks more like a JAWS poster.

@HesamB: Giraffe/Human hybrid, please don't laugh at us.

@ragnarocking: Yeah, don't mock us. We suffer neck pain because is too long :(

@HesamB: The hair is covering the rest of the neck so it does look a bit weird. But she does have a long neck.

@Daian: since it's an origin story maybe she gets implants in the sequel?
