*Update – The leaked trailer has been replaced with the official HD trailer. The Tomb Raider feature has also been added to this article as well.

Roar Uthaug‘s Tomb Raider (2017) movie trailer stars Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, and Kristin Scott Thomas. Tomb Raider‘s plot 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.”

Having previously publishing the poster for the new Tomb Raider film yesterday, after watching this trailer, I do not have a good feeling about this film. The running footage in the trailer looks good. Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) looks like an athlete. Vikander obviously got herself into shape for this role but that is all the trailer has going for it. The trailer even gets a little cheesy towards the end with a sound that Croft emits while making a particularly long jump.

I don’t know what went wrong with this film. It looks as though they played it safe with everything. I completely understand Warner Bros. and MGM’s thirst for a new, profitable franchise but Tomb Raider is not going to be it. The video game series is not as popular as it used to be and Alicia Vikander is not as famous as Angelina Jolie was when her Tomb Raider film came out.

This film was a bad calculation and doesn’t like as though it paid off.
