Lara Croft leaps back to the big screen in the first footage from Warner Bros.' "Tomb Raider" reboot, but it's the movie's new poster that's really blowing up Twitter.
Star Alicia Vikander is front and center in the poster (above) and while her impressive arms are the first thing that caught our attention, a ton of critics have taken issue with the actress' twisted, elongated neck.
Also, cool that whoever photoshopped together the tomb raider poster has never seen a human neck in their life pic.twitter.com/vIn2AIJHMZ
As for the footage, it's far more convincing. The :15-long sneak peek gives fleeting glimpses of the treasure hunter running through the forrest, firing a bow and arrow and deftly avoiding contact with a boobytrap in a tomb. The full trailer drops tomorrow.
"Tomb Raider" hits theaters March 2018. Read the full synopsis from Warner Bros. 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.
