'Tomb Raider' Movie Synopsis, Details Revealed

The first expression and appearance of Alicia Vikander in the upcoming "Tomb Raider" reboot have been released, and she looks very much like the Lara Croft longtime fans of the franchise will want to see.

The New Lara Croft

The images released by Vanity Fair's website shows the "Ex Machina" star as the new Lara Croft, a remodeling in director Roar Uthaug's upcoming "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider." No longer a passage adventurer, this new Croft is a bike envoy who's in search of her missing father, starting with his last-known location: a tomb off the coast of Japan.

"She's creating a place in the current world and fix her future with her past," Vikander told the magazine about her high-profile new role. "She is also uniquely different to other characters on previous settings. There's a lot of fun trying to get into Lara's head, and the task of getting to grips with such a physical role is an element of this project that I find an absolute thrill."

The Game-To-Film Adaptation

The new movie follows a 2013 boot up for the video game franchise. It also debuted with an inexpert version of the female "Indiana Jones" who'd earlier been played on the big screen by Angelina Jolie in two great movies. The 2013 game, called "Tomb Raider" produced a 2015 film sequel, "Rise of the Tomb Raider."

The details about Lara being stuck on a Japanese island are lifted directly from the 2013 "Tomb Raider" game. The stuff about Lara's father is mostly from the film sequel, "Rise of the Tomb Raider."

It will be exciting to see how Warner Bros. interprets the "Tomb Raider" titles to the screen. The games are very fierce and put Lara through a lot of distressing stuff. Will wider spectators want to see that? And how will they be able to avoid an R rating?

"Tomb Raider" stars Vikander, Dominic West, Daniel Wu, Walter Goggins, and will be directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave). The movie is scheduled to hit the cinemas on March 16, 2018.
