I’ve got to admit, watching the trailer – it actually looks really good. I was one of those people who got really skeptical when Alicia Vikander was cast as the new Lara Croft; I’m not even sure why – I like her as an actress, she’s an Oscar winner and I really like her voice (for some reason).
Apart from the casting of the lead actress, I can’t really say I followed up with news regarding the movie because I was definite I wasn’t going to watch it.
Now…I’m forced to reconsider. Take a look at the new trailer to see for yourself:
If not for anything, it looks like it will be a fun watch.
I’ll admit, I’m still not entirely sure of Alicia as Lara Croft, although she’s certainly going to do a good job (as we can see from the trailer); but Nick Frost in it, so, yay!
Anyhow, the trailer has a lot of kicking, running and riskiness… it also has a badass female lead – so I’m definitely watching it.
If you want more information before deciding to watch it, you can check out the official synopsis of the movie below:
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making 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. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.
Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. 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.
