UPI News Service, 09/20/2017
Alicia Vikander brings iconic video game game character Lara Croft to life in the first trailer for Warner Bros. upcoming "Tomb Raider" reboot.
The clip, released Tuesday, features Vikander discovering a hidden message from her missing father that sets her off on a harrowing journey full of hidden tombs, lost treasure and battles with a group of mercenaries.
"Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared," reads the synopsis.
Based on the most recent reboot of the video game series from publisher Square Enix and developers Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, the film features a more realistic take on Lara Croft as she grows into becoming a true action hero.
"Tomb Raider" is set to arrive in theaters on March 16, 2018.
