As the AFC Championship Game between the 5x World Champion New England Patriots and the Jacksonville Jaguars continues, Warner Bros. has released an awesome new TV spot for their upcoming video game movie adaptation/reboot of Tomb Raider. The film stars Alicia Vikander as the daredevil extraordinaire Lara Croft, who finds herself on the adventure of a lifetime, searching for the truth behind her father’s disappearance.
On another note, it looks like Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life are both getting the 4K Ultra HD treatment ahead of the new film’s release. Both titles are due out on February 27th and are currently available to pre-order on Amazon (1, 2).
Watch the new “Adventure” TV spot below:
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.
