The First Trailer for ‘Tomb Raider’ Has Arrived

The first trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie is here, and it’s very, very Tomb Raider-y. Starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, the film is loosely based on the 2013 reboot of the video game series.

Honestly? It looks pretty decent so far. I mean, it’s always hard to tell from a trailer, but the tone is clearly much more grounded than the previous film franchise based on the game series. I think the best attitude to take right now is “cautious optimism,” and I guess we’ll see what happens.

Tomb Raider hits theaters March 16, 2018.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
