See Alicia Vikander As Lara Croft In TOMB RAIDER Trailer September 20, 2017 Her legend begins. The full action-packed trailer for the Roar Uthaug-directed video game adaptation has arrived, giving us our first look at Oscar-winning ‘The Danish Girl’ actress Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft. Seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara Croft has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes. Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan. 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. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name Tomb Raider. TOMB RAIDER lands in Irish cinemas March 16, 2018.
