Warner Bros. Pictures

Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for its upcoming action-adventure film “Tomb Raider,” giving audiences a closer look at Alicia Vikander’s athletic video game heroine Lara Croft getting down to business in her run for survival.

Unlike the previous trailer, the new footage shows more focus on the character’s legacy, her family and her past while looking for answers about the death of her father.

Vikander has taken on action films in the past with “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” and “Jason Bourne,” as well as the science fiction thriller “Ex Machina” which won her nominations at the Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards for Best Supporting Actress. The Swedish actress received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as the painter Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl.

Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug, the film also features Daniel Wu, Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen as Sophie, Antonio Aakeel and Dominic West.

A reboot of the film franchise that originally starred Angeline Jolie as Lara, Tomb Raider is set to be released in March 16, 2018.

Here is Tomb Raider’s full synopsis:

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.

Momoa is back to being a tough guy in the latest action-packed trailer for “Braven.”

The trailer shows Joe Braven (Momoa) and his father (Stephen Lang) go to their remote hunting cabin during a presumably relaxing getaway with his family. But things went bad fast when they found out that drugs were hidden by traffickers in the cabin.

When the heavily armed bad guys descent upon the cabin, it is now up to Braven to stand his ground and defend his family in any way possible.

The film seem like a good old fashioned action-thriller filled with shootouts, fistfights and Momoa’s axe throwing prowess, elements that has come to define Momoa career lately.

Directed by Lin Oeding, from the script by Mike Nilon and Thomas Pa’a Sibbett, “Braven” is scheduled for release February 2, 2018. Momoa produced the film with Nilon, Brian Mendoza and Molly Hassell. Also in the film are Garret Dillahunt, Jill Wagner and Brendan Fletcher.

The actor is going to have a hectic 2018. The former Game of Thrones actor is set to appear later this year in what may be the biggest project of his career, director James Wan’s Aquaman, based on the DC Comics character of the same name.

The film sees Butler as on-edge Los Angeles cop Nick Flanagan, going after a group of dangerous outlaws planning a major heist on the Federal Reserve Bank in downtown Los Angeles. “You’re not the bad guys, we are,” Butler confessed in trailer.
