Alicia Vikander may be enjoying life as a newlywed (and who can blame her when her adoring hubby is none other than Hollywood hottie Michael Fassbender?), but that doesn’t mean that she’s taking it easy career-wise. In fact, the new trailer for Tomb Raider shows her character, Lara Croft, on an action-packed adventure to save the world.
New fans, as well as anyone who played the popular Tomb Raider video games or saw the films starring Angelina Jolie in 2001 and 2003, will surely be bowled over by Vikander’s take on the iconic character.
A 21-year-old archaeologist from a notable family, Lara is determined to find out about her father’s mysterious disappearance. Though she’s told that he’s dead, she’ll stop at nothing to find out what really happened to him.
In the latest film, she follows clues that were left behind by her dad and heads on “an adventure” to an island in the center of the Devil’s Sea (which is as dangerous as it sounds). When she arrives, she doesn’t find her father, but she does find his rival, Mathias Vogel, and a scary-sounding group called Trinity that’s intent on “global genocide.” Yikes!
Tasked with taking the bad-guys down, Lara faces fierce fights, raging rivers, coded gadgets, a fall from a plane, and of course, a tomb to raid.
And just to amp up the awesomeness, the entire trailer is set to a haunting, get-your-blood-pumping cover of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor.” Check it out below and prepare yourself for the action-packed adventure when Tomb Raider hits theaters on March 16.
