First Set Image From The New 'Tomb Raider'

We now have a first look at Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider adaptation. Based on the popular video game series of the same name, the film also stars Dominic West and Walton Goggins, and has Roar Uthaug behind the camera.
The movie will apparently mine inspiration from Crystal Dynamics’ series reboot, which drew much praise back when it released in 2013. While exact plot details remain under wraps for now, Goggins (who’s on board to play the villain) recently teased that it’ll be a bit like Raiders of the Lost Ark – a comparison which makes sense. Until we learn a little bit more about the film though, we’ll remain skeptical of it.

Vikander is tremendous talent, to be sure, and Tomb Raider is a great property for adaptation, one that’s well suited to the big screen. That being said, we all know how many times fans have been burned by adaptations of their favorite video games. Just recently, Assassin’s Creed and Warcraft both promised to break the curse and unfortunately, neither movie was particularly enjoyable. Will this reboot be the one to finally turn things around? We certainly hope so.

Tomb Raider will be with us on March 16th, 2018
