We're learning more about the Tomb Raider these days, and that means we're finally finding out when we're going to see a trailer. When star Alicia Vikander recently spoke to the Ottawa Sun, she revealed that we're going see the trailer very soon likely in the next two weeks. This is a movie with a March of 2018 release date, so that adds up. Now is about the time we'll start to see more promo for this movie.
Vikander also talked about the theme of the movie and what we should expect from the overall plot:
"It's about being young, and not really knowing what kind of life is going to be in front of you. And you've been thrown questions about what you want to do, what you should do, and it's not an easy thing for a teenager to figure that out. There's a lot of pressure. It's a coming of age story with a known action character, and hopefully, we'll see some new aspects of her that we haven't seen before."
This is mostly stuff that we've seen before, but it's interesting that they are really going to lean into how young Lara actually is. This is never really addressed in any of the media before. Lara is usually presented as an adult in the games and the movies, so the fact that they are looking at how her younger sense of mind affects her actions is going to be interesting.
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.
