I wasn’t the biggest fan of the last trailer for this flick. In this one they show us a little bit more raiding of tombs in addition to Laura hacking at people with sharp objects, shooting others with arrows and implementing a little mixed martial arts for good measure. The supporting cast still does nothing for me and I think Goggins may be wasting his talents here…but some of the action sequences look pretty decent. Vikander seems to be commiting herself to the role. Her smashing through debri and being flung about like a rag doll will likely be the highlights of the film.
I’ve raised my expectations from a nah to a….perhaps.
Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander, Hannah John-Kamen, Dominic West, Walton Goggins, and Daniel Wu navigates its way into theaters March 16th, 2018.
