The first trailer for Tomb Raider should convince you that Alicia Vikander is more than capable of filling Angelina Jolie’s boots!

“Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.”

Thus reads the synopsis for the brand new Tomb Raider movie, which sees Alicia Vikander don the iconic gear and head on a wilderness adventure.

The movie is based on the video game series of the same name, which has been previously adapted with Angelina Jolie in the lead role. This first trailer shows off Swedish actress Alicia Vikander’s chops — and I dare say this is another female-led superhero movie you won’t want to miss!

The trailer has everything you want from a movie like this one: action, humor, and lots of Lara running across things, dodging things and jumping from one thing to another thing. Anyone itching to play video games right now?

Tomb Raider is directed by Roar Uthaug and also stars Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu and Dominic West. It is set to be released on March 16, 2018.
