Second Trailer for 'Tomb Raider' Starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft
"What are you doing here, Lara?" Warner Bros has released the second trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie, based on the popular video game series about adventurer Lara Croft. This trailer is a bit better than the first one, thankfully, so fire it up and take a look. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft, playing a young woman living in London who decides to travel to a mysterious island in an attempt to figure out what happened to her eccentric adventurer father. The cast includes Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, Dominic West, Daniel Wu, and Alexandre Willaume. This new trailer actually promises an entertaining movie, with some badass action and thrilling mystery. Yes, it's a big Hollywood movie but at least it doesn't seem like it's going to be a disaster. I'm honestly really looking forward to this now. Dive in.
Here's the second official trailer (+ new poster) for Roar Uthaug's Tomb Raider, from WB's YouTube:
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was young. Now a young woman, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier. 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. Tomb Raider is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug, of the films The Wave, Escape, Magic Silver, and Cold Prey previously. The screenplay is written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Warner Bros releases Tomb Raider in theaters everywhere starting March 16th, 2018.

The trailer looks okay at best, but I have hope that the movie is good. The use of music in trailers these days are so bad. And the effects need a lot of work....

Well, it looks slightly better than the Angelina Jolie version, which isn't saying much. Also, that poster SUCKS. Her head is all misshapen at the temples. I guess she must've taken the picture with a concussion from hitting one of the many things she hit in the trailer. But yeah, this looks mediocre and predictable. I'd rather go play the games. PASS.

Probably the same people who did the last poster with the E.T. neck.

Blockbuster films are usually fun even if they aren't very good. But this looks like one of those that is bad through and through. Shame for Alicia. Still excited to see Goggins as a villain.

Well, it's better than the last one. Of course, I'll watch it for fun, not heavy thoughts here. It's ok production and the actress is likable and up to some point the whole thing might be watchable. Comedies and horrors mostly suck these days, so this will have to do as a substitute for fun watching. Something people misunderstand about this action, super hero or most of sf films these days, they're best fun products out there these days ...

I rather enjoyed the first two. Flawed, definitely. But Jolie conveyed a real sense of curiosity, bravado, and wit...and she did a lot of her own stunts. Plus, "Elevation". Vikander is the wild card here...can she pull off a Gal Gadot? A Jolie?

Seems to be poor casting. Alicia is a baby face and is not showing toughness and strength that Lara Croft has. Lara Croft is tough, mature, and hardened. I don't see Alicia's Lara maturing or toughening through the course of the movie.
