Alicia Vikander is the new Lara Croft in Tomb Raider trailer

Next month marks the 21st anniversary of the release of the popular Tomb Raider games which will make a lot of fans feel nostalgic (and old!).

Since then, there have been a number of game sequels and reboots about archaeological heroine Lara Croft as well as two smash hit films starring Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie.

Now, another talented star is taking on the iconic role with Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl, Jason Bourne) gearing up for the upcoming reboot Tomb Raider which has premiered its official trailer online.

Directed by Roar Uthaug (Escape, The Wave), the film explores the origins of Lara as we see her working a day job in London. But when she discovers that her father has gone missing on an island, she embarks on a worldwide quest to find him despite being inexperienced as an adventurer.

Dominic West (The Wire, The Affair) plays Lara’s father with additional casting support coming from Walton Goggins (The Shield, Justified), Hannah John-Kamen (Happy Valley, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Daniel Wu (The Man with the Iron Fists, Warcraft: The Beginning).

Tomb Raider will be released in the UK on March 16th 2018.
