New Tomb Raider Trailer - Alicia Vikander goes into action as Lara Croft

Watch the new Tomb Raider trailer below.

Vikander succeeds Angelina Jolie in portraying the iconic Lara Croft, with a slightly more subdued performance, but still not as fragile as the character of the 2013 videogame, even if the film follows closely the plot of that entry.

Young Lara is now being played by Alicia Vikander, as can be seen in Tomb Raider 2018's butt-kicking new trailer, and fans checking out the trailer will find that Lara is accompanied this time around by a catchy tune that should feel familiar to players who spent their time raiding tombs back in the PlayStation 1 era.

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen.

Gideon Bernstein and Jeanne Pepper Bernstein wrote, "our son was a lovely gentle soul who we loved more than anything". The two young men had attended the Orange County School of the Arts in Santa Ana together.

There are high hopes for Tomb Raider to buck the trend for disappointing game-to-film adaptations, particularly as the rebooted Tomb Raider game series, which the new cinematic outing is largely based on, brought a fresh lease of life to Lara Croft's story. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or objective, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. The film stars Oscar victor 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, directed by Roar Uthaug and co-starring Daniel Wu and Dominic West, is adapted from the popular "Tomb Raider" video game.

Tomb Raider will hit theaters on March 16th, 2018. Geneva Robertson-Dworet penned the script and is also the scribe for Marvel's upcoming film, Captain Marvel.

Naturally, there are no overt ties between Destiny's Child and Tomb Raider, aside from the idea of a powerful woman surviving the only way she knows how.
