The Tomb Raider footage is very slowly starting to leak through the cracks. This morning Total Film magazine (via GamesRadar) has published multiple, exclusive new images showing Alicia Vikander performing some daring (and dangerous) sequences as the legendary tomb raider herself: Lara Croft. There are four new images in all, which you can check out below.
Of course, in true Lara Croft fashion, we see Vikander wielding a bow and arrow, just like her digital counterpart in the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and Rise of the Tomb Raider. We see her standing next to Danuel Wu, who plays Lu Ren in the film. The images also show Vikander wielding a more modest tool -- a flashlight -- as she explores a dark cavern (or uh, tomb) of some kind.
From what little we know about the film, it's turning out to be a reboot of sorts, just like the 2013 game. Lara Croft's father, and Croft's family generally, have always played pretty mysterious roles in the games. Croft manor has always stood as a testament to the exploits and accomplishments of the Croft line, and Lara has always assumed the role of explorer and adventurer after her father.
In the film, Lara's father goes missing when she's very young, and she's left to take charge of the family business in his absence. Apathetic and wandering, Lara rejects this role and decides to venture out to eh island where her father was believed to have disappeared. The film follows her adventure as she seeks to uncover the mystery of what her father was searching for on that mysterious island to begin with, and his fate.
