Lara Croft has been a somewhat iconic character for video games, starring as the female heroine in the widely popular Tomb Raider series, which got its start as a PlayStation exclusive, but eventually branched off onto other consoles.
There have already been two films made, loosely about the video game franchise, starring Angelina Jolie. I didn’t mind either film — actually, I remember being excited when I first saw the first film, but as years have passed, those films have faded into memory.
Now, Tomb Raider is getting rebooted, with a grittier focus geared towards the newer games and Ex Machina‘s Alicia Vikander is starring as Lara Croft and Walton Goggins seems to be playing the main baddie.
This first trailer visually reminds me exactly of the recent games, while the action hopefully remains to be on par as well. I sure hope the story is a worthwhile endeavor, because I’m all about an actually good video game adaptation.
