Lara Croft is back in action! And she looks more impressive than ever.

Check out the very first trailer for "Tomb Raider," the forthcoming action film reboot, which is based on the popular video game franchise that features the beloved globe-trotting, adventure-seeking heroine, Lara Croft.

This time its Oscar-winning Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl, Ex Machina) who takes over the iconic role once held by fellow Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie in a new cinematic version of Lara's origin story.

Featuring a solid supporting cast that includes Daniel Wu, Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Nick Frost, and Dominic West as Lara's long-presumed-dead archaeologist father Lord Richard Croft, "Tomb Raider" is directed by Norwegian helmer Roar Uthaug, whose credits include 2016's disaster film "The Wave," 2012's 14th-century-set actioner "Escape," and 2006's horror thriller "Cold Prey."

"Tomb Raider" is currently slated for a theatrical release on March 16, 2018.

synopsis:
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.
