Here is an an overview:

Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar-winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner. The film¹s production begins on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the wildly popular videogame franchise from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.

Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster, 300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained) and Daniel Wu (AMC¹s Into the Badlands).

Alicia Vikander is a fantastic actress.

Nice synopsis of the movie :-D.

Alicia seems like a fine actress however she doesn't look or remind me of Lara Croft in any way.

Trailer looks pretty good but I still not on board with the lead actress, she might win me over but the look is just not doing it for me.

It looks pretty good. I'm kind of disappointed that several key characters from the game seem to be missing from the movie though, such as Roth and Jonah.

I think there’s still a chance they could be included, the trailer might want to keep little surprised like that a secret for a bit longer.

good trailer, looking forward to it and looking forward to Shadow of the Tomb Raider even more.

I'm on board with Alicia as Lara and chuckled at the references to recent games, but other than that this looks quite disappointing and downright cheap. =/
