Not long after Angelina Jolie won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in 1999's Girl, Interrupted, she signed on to play globe-trotting, gun-slinging archaeologist Lara Croft in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (based on the popular video game series).

Now, another Oscar winner, Alicia Vikander (her performance in 2015's The Danish Girl won her the Best Actress Oscar), will be taking the helm of the new Tomb Raider, directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave).

Vikander is a 21-year-old Croft, working as a London bike messenger, as she investigates her father's death 7 years ago. Her quest for answers takes her to a small island off the coast of Japan: the last place her father was seen alive. Vikander said the following to Entertainment Weekly about playing the character:

“She has all the fierce, tough, curious, intelligent traits... but we've stripped away all of her experience. She hasn't gone on an adventure just yet. She thought he was a stuck up businessperson living in the modern youth culture of suburban London, but then this whole box of information. This is the beginning.”

Tomb Raider’s scheduled release date is March 16, 2018. See the first trailer below:
