Full ‘Tomb Raider’ Trailer Looks Like a Faithful Adaptation

Published

on

I’m a huge fan of the “Tomb Raider” games that are the perfect mix of action and supernatural horror, always taking things to the absolute max. It’s grounded just enough to let you buy into the real-worldness of it all. Warner Bros.’ latest live-action Tomb Raider adaptation echoes a lot from the later games, including the environments to weapons, and traps. The first trailer initially didn’t grab my attention, but in catching it in theaters it looks quite faithful.

The new trailer adds to the overall story and to Lara Croft’s (Alicia Vikander) backstory. While some of the CGI looks questionable, I think it looks like a lot of fun. Oh, and Walton Goggins is the film’s antagonist. That’s a huge plus.

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 is set for release beginning March 16, 2018.
