First Official TOMB RAIDER Images, Synopsis

Still from 'Tomb Raider'

The first official images of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the new film adaptation of Tomb Raider have been released via Vanity Fair

Along with the images a description of the plot was given. In the film, Lara Croft's father, a powerful businessman, goes missing. Despite having refused to take over his company, Lara sets out to find him in his last known location - a tomb on a remote island.

“When I was asked to take on this role I got really excited—Lara Croft is a truly iconic character,“ Vikander told Vanity Fair. “I think people can identify with her for lots of different reasons, but for me I very much see her as a model for many young women. She’s trying to carve out her place in the world and connect her future with her past. She also has a fantastic mix of traits—tough, smart, vulnerable, plus she’s kick ass! She is also uniquely different to other characters I have taken on previously. It's a lot of fun trying to get into Lara’s head and the challenge of getting to grips with such a physical role is an element of this project that I find an absolute thrill.”
 
Tomb Raider is due out in theaters March 16, 2018.
