‘Tomb Raider’ Trailer: Alicia Vikander Is a Really Good Jumper

Subscribe to Power 95.9 on

Earlier this week, we got a look at Alicia Vikander, whose neck is definitely a normal human length, in the first poster for the new Tomb Raider, along with a teaser for the official trailer. Today, the trailer has dropped, and it still looks pretty exciting.

There’s plenty of action and lots of jumping across large distances, which is something that Lara Croft ought to be pretty good at. In this movie, Croft’s search for her missing father turns into a bigger search for the truth, which is, naturally hidden inside a tomb that must be closed before it ends all of humanity somehow. Sounds great. And hey! It’s Walton Goggins!

Warner Bros. also released a behind-the-scenes featurette, showing how Vikander trained to become the video game hero:

Here’s the long official synopsis:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen.  Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class.  Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone.  Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan.  But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous.  Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.  If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.

Tomb Raider hits theaters March 16, 2018.
