See Alicia Vikander in the searing first trailer for Tomb Raider

A first trailer for Tomb Raider, the new reboot starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, has been unveiled. Click below to watch it. 

Vikander stars as Lara Croft with The Wire's Dominic West in the role of her father, archaeologist Lord Richard Croft, the Earl of Abingdon, in the new reboot, which also stars Walton Goggins and Daniel Wu. 

The film has been directed by Roar Uthuag, the director behind the Norwegian disaster drama The Wave. 

The reboot finds Croft aged 21 and working as a bike courier in East London and refusing to take the reins of her father's global empire. But, still haunted by his disappearance, she then 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...

The movie will hit cinemas on March 16th in 2018, meaning it will arrive a full 15 years after the last Tomb Raider movie hit screens.
