MGM have released the first poster and trailer teaser for the upcoming Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander, and we’re hyped.
Y’know what? I really liked the first Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider movie. It was fun, cheesy, and full of some great action scenes… though I guess times change and all. It was this year that I properly played my first Tomb Raider game as I successfully completed the rebooted PS4 version of the game.
Though as a child I did love the Jolie movie (one of the few decent video game movies maybe?), but not so much the second one since it just wasn’t very good. It looks like playing the game will hold me in good stead for the upcoming reboot as Hollywood yet again has a go at a video game movie.
Borrowing the Christopher Nolan style of the aesthetic, young Lara Croft gets stranded on an island where he father mysteriously disappeared. This time, Lara Croft will be played by virtual spitting image Alicia Vikander (The Man from Uncle).
It’s like Indiana Jones rebooted Batman Begins style.
Though the poster doesn’t add any new information on the movie, it does show one the most useful tools in Croft’s armoury during the game. So grab your torch and get ready to raid some tombs when Tomb Raider comes out next year.
Check out the poster below as well as the trailer teaser which is to be shown in full later today.
