When it was announced that a new Tomb Raider movie was in production, it was reasonable for fans to be skeptical. The original movies starring Angelina Jolie weren’t particularly perfect, so many worried the new film would be similarly problematic. But looking at the first trailer, that won’t be a problem.
A new trailer dropped on YouTube for the upcoming Tomb Raider film, and it looks awesome. It looks like there are some great action scenes as well as a plot that may actually be good, which would be a rarity for a video game movie. Take a look at the trailer:
The new Lara Croft is played by Alicia Vikander, for either playing a robot in Ex Machina or a painter in The Danish Girl. Based off this trailer, it looks like she’s nailed the Croft character.
The new movie also seems to be borrowing heavily from the two newest Tomb Raider video games. The Trinity organization, killing people with a bow and the use of a pickaxe are all elements straight from the recent games, which were also really good.
So basically all signs point to this movie being good.
