Tomb Raider Movie Trailer Unearthed

What an exciting 24 hours it has been! The Tomb Raider fan base is shook with the release of the full-length trailer for Tomb Raider. Watch it in all it's glory above.

And when I say all it's glory, I mean ALL IT'S GLORY! This trailer is packed with the very meaning TOMB RAIDER! You'll notice all the likenesses to the past two games and then... BOOM, dual pistols baby! That's right, and they're the exact models Angelina Jolie holstered in the first two films! It's got the tombs, the mysterious island, the brutal action, the drama, the bow and arrows, the guns, the growth of Lara as the bad ass Tomb Raider and more!

And that's not all! Watch the "Becoming Lara Croft" behind the scenes video below to get all sorts of gritty with Alicia Vikander!

And more! The trailer was released exclusively with a live sit down with Alicia herself, courtesy of IGN. Watch the happenings below.

Still more! The director, Roar Uthaug, gave us some commentary.

Nope, there's more! Alicia then proceeded to hop on set with James Corden of The Late Late Show and it is hilarious and awesome all at the same time!

I am so excited for this film and I can't wait to see it on opening night! I hope to see you there in March of 2018.

Tomb Raider Movie Teaser and Poster Revealed!!!

The time has come fellow raiders! The trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider film is coming tomorrow and we have the official teaser above to prove it! I get all the feels and chills just watching this teaser and I can't wait to see the full trailer in the next 24 hours. Alicia Vikander looks absolutely adventurous as Lara Croft and I have no doubt this film will be an exhilarating experience for all fans.

The first official poster can be seen below as well. I love how closely it resembles the reboot video games. The look on Alicia's face shows some stern vulnerability, but the musculature of the body shows that she can handle anything and she will become the "Tomb Raider" we all know.

Keep your eyes open for the official trailer of Tomb Raider and more on the official social channels:

Read the official film synopsis below:

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.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, “Tomb Raider” is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero.  The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (“Ex Machina,” “The Danish Girl”) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”), with Oscar-winner Graham King (“The Departed”) producing under his GK Films banner.

The film’s production begins on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the wildly popular videogame franchise from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.

“Tomb Raider” also stars Dominic West (“Money Monster,” “300”), Walton Goggins (“The Hateful Eight,” “Django Unchained”) and Daniel Wu (AMC’s “Into the Badlands”).

Shooting on location in South Africa and the UK, Uthaug directs from a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet.  The director’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography George Richmond (“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”); production designer Gary Freeman (“Maleficent”); Oscar-nominated editor Stuart Baird (“Skyfall,” “Gorillas in the Mist”); and costume designer Tim Wonsik (key costumer, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”).

“Tomb Raider” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by MGM.

A new issue of Empire magazine is on shelves now featuring this stunning new image of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the upcoming film Tomb Raider. She looks phenomenal and completely captures the essence of the rebooted franchise. I love the subtle differences in her outfit and gear. Tomb Raider releases in March 2018.
