Warner Bros. has unveiled the first details of their cinematic reboot of Tomb Raider 2018 film including a first look at Alicia Vikander as Tomb Raider 3 Clara Croft and reveal the movie’s synopsis.
Warner Bros. released the first trailer and behind-the-scene of Tomb Raider 2018 film featuring Vikander in action as Lara Croft. Also, they reveal the official plot description for the movie confirming that Lara will investigate her father’s mysterious murder.
Tomb Raider 2018 story is about Lara Croft as the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Tomb Raider 2018 film picks her up as a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose in her life. Lara navigates through the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier. She barely makes the rent and takes college courses which she rarely makes 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. Going explicitly against her father’s final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind and goes on her search for her father’s last-known destination which happens to be a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. Her mission will not be an easy one as reaching the island will being extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara. She 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 of Tomb Raider.
If the description and first look appear familiar, it is because Crystal Dynamics reboot the game in 2013 and the sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider in 2015. They are providing inspiration for the story of this film, and that has been confirmed by director Roar Uthaug. Uthaug also said the movie “takes a more realistic, grounded approach” than most video game movie adaptations, noting he’s aiming to diverge from the abundance of CGI and special effects other adaptations have included.
Vikander will star alongside Dominic West, who will reportedly play Lara’s father, as well as Daniel Wu and Walton Goggins as the movie’s villain.
