A little while back, fans of the Tomb Raider were treated to some leaked pictures of Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft via a twitter fan account. The images showed fans Vikander’s resemblance to Crystal Dynamics rebooted icon, Lara Croft.
Well, today Warner Bros have released the first batch of official pictures of Vikander’s Lara Croft. In the images down below, fans of the rebooted series can see she has a lot of similarities to the video game counterpart. Not only is she wearing the same outfit, but she is also holding the pickax fans have become so used to.
Check out the pictures down below:
In addition, Waner Bros. has released the official plot description of the movie. As stated before, the film will take inspiration from the 2013 Tomb Raider game from Crystal Dynamics. Check out the description of the film down 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.
The untitled Tomb Raider film comes to theaters on March 16, 2018.
