Tomb Raider is one of the two video game adaptations coming out in early 2018. While Rampage is based off of a game that maybe a third of the population remembers, Tomb Raider is still iconic. The game recently went through a revamp, and after the last set of movies failed to hit big, it's time for another attempt. This time it stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, and Total Film has a new cover and images from the upcoming movie.
Vikander is an excellent actress, but one of the things that has become apparent is that she is in the best shape of her life for this role. Strong women in movies rarely look strong, but Vikander looks like she could break someone twice her size over her knee. It's the definition in her arms, the raw strength, and in an industry where women are often criticized for being "too manly-looking" Tomb Raider is embracing it. If nothing else comes from this movie, that is a big deal.
Summary: Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.
Tomb Raider, directed by Roar Uthaug, stars Alicia Vikander, Walton Goggins, Dominic West, Hannah John-Kamen, and Daniel Wu. It will be released on March 18th, 2018.
