Debut trailer for the New Tomb Raider Movie Releases Online

Here's our first proper look at Alicia Vikander stepping into the storied shoes of Lara Croft.

Now that we're all past the point of staring in disbelief at Alicia Vikander's Photoshopped neck, we can now revel in the new Tomb Raider trailer, which Warner Bros. Pictures released today.

The trailer, which you can see for yourself just below, actually melds together both the Tomb Raider reboot game and Rise of the Tomb Raider, as Alicia Vikander's Lara Croft journeys in search of her father's legacy, as well as finding herself trapped on an island with a group of friends.

There are distinct moments from the rebooted game from 2013 in this debut trailer, such as Lara perilously making her way across the wing of an airplane that's bridging the gap over a waterfall. It also features Walton Goggins' villain on the mysterious island.

Although this was the debut trailer for the Tomb Raider movie, it wasn't entirely our first look at Vikander's take on Croft, as we saw behind the scenes stills like the one just below earlier this year.

The Tomb Raider movie is still due for release at some unknown point in 2018. What did you think of the debut trailer for the movie? Let us know in the comments below.

Hirun Cryer is by far the most juvenile member of USgamer. He's so juvenile, that this is his first full-time job in the industry, unlike literally every other person featured on this page. He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
