Watch Alicia Vikander wield an array of deadly weapons in the action-packed trailer for 'Tomb Raider'

Lara croft tomb raiderWarner Bros.Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in the new ‘Tomb Raider’ trailer.

Academy Award-winner Alicia Vikander accomplishes superhero-like stunts in the new trailer for “Tomb Raider.”

Vikander stars as the British adventurer and thrill-seeker Lara Croft in the reboot of the popular film series helmed by Angelina Jolie.

Jolie originally played Croft in the adaptations of the popular “Tomb Raider” video games. Jolie starred in “Tomb Raider” in 2001, and its sequel “Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” in 2003.

In the trailer for the “Tomb Raider” reboot, we see Croft come upon a video left for her by her father — an explorer who went missing when she was only 10 years old. In the video, Croft’s father tells her about a tomb that needs to be sealed in order to save humanity, and from there we see Croft head out in search of the mysterious tomb.

In the trailer, Croft wields an assortment of deadly weapons as she tries to accomplish the mission her missing father sent her on. And whatever concerns anyone may have had about Vikander taking the place of Jolie should immediately vanish the minute we see her impressively leap through crumbling cavernous ruins.

“Tomb Raider” hits theatres March 16, 2018.
