An impressive new trailer for upcoming Tomb Raider has been released.
I watched the original Tomb Raider movie which starred Angelina Jolie. I remember Jolie as Lara Croft, but I don’t remember the movie. Not at all. That’s not really saying much for the movie when it was so forgettable. I have much higher hopes for the reboot.
This new movie stars Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander in the title role. The new trailer gives us a glimpse of the storyline behind the movie. It appears that Croft has some daddy issues.
The one sentence synopsis is extremely basic, “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.” The trailer, is much less basic.
The special effects look great, the action looks plentiful, and Vikander looks like she could actually be an adventurer. Let’s hope this movie is enjoyable for more than just the fans of the video game series.
