Tomb Raider trailer: Alicia Vikander chases secrets and techniques from her previous

From the game

The first look at the Tomb Raider reboot gave us plenty of tomb-raiding action, with a lot of it inspired by the 2013 video game reboot of Lara Croft's escapades. If the trailer's anything to go by, we're in for an exciting and very bumpy ride.

The clip, released Thursday, dives into the origin story of Lara Croft and a hidden message she discovers from her missing father that sets her off on a harrowing journey on a remote island full of hidden tombs and lost treasure. Intelligent, like her father, she's forced to work alongside the villainous Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins); a man who has been searching for the tomb that she finds over the past seven years. Armed with her wits and a bow and arrow, she must do whatever it takes to survive the island. All, of course, in her trademark outfit. However in the current climate another strong resourceful female role model won't go amiss, and "Tomb Raider" promises to be just one of many big female-driven movies in 2018. Vikander seems more than up to the challenge of embodying her famous protagonist, but whether she can reverse the video-game movie curse won't be definitively known for two more months.
