Warner Bros. and MGM has debut the first poster of “Tomb Raider”, which features Alicia Vikander ready for action, ahead of the first trailer’s release on Tuesday. Fans of the franchise also got their first look of the film in an action packed 15-second teaser trailer posted on Twitter (see below.)

The badass poster shows the Oscar-winning Vikander wearing shirt and jeans, looking over the shoulder, her back bleeding and holding a climbing ax that harks back to the 2013 Tomb Raider video game of the same name that inspired the movie.

Vikander plays the beautiful archaeologist-adventurer Lara Croft, a role that brought blockbuster stardom to Angelina Jolie in 2001’s original Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and it’s sequel two years later in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life.

In this reboot, Croft sets out on a high-stakes adventure to a mysterious island where her father, who disappeared seven years ago, was last seen.

Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug, the film also features Daniel Wu, Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen as Sophie, Antonio Aakeel and Dominic West. Tomb Raider is set to be released in March 2018.
