A new trailer for the upcoming "Tomb Raider" reboot sheds some more light on our titular heroine, featuring a young Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) who's finally ready to embrace her roots and follow in her adventurer father's footsteps.
The clip spends more time on the mysterious island where Lara's father (played in flashbacks and video messages by Dominic West) was last seen, which just so happens to be in the middle of something called the Devil's Sea. If that wasn't ominous enough, she's greeted on arrival by the villainous Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins), who takes her prisoner.
But Lara is no shrinking violet, and this new trailer highlights all of Vikander's intense training and impressive stunt work. We have a feeling that Vogel and his cohorts are no match for this tomb raider-in-training, and it should be fun to see how much butt Lara/Vikander kicks along the way.
"At some point, we have to face up to who we are, who we're meant to be," Lara says in voiceover at the beginning of the clip. Looks like she's definitely making progress.
"Tomb Raider" hits theaters on March 16.

The stakes couldn't be higher as Lara must rely on her sharp mind, blind faith and stubborn spirit to venture into the unknown. Read More
