Today Warner Bros. Pictures released their first poster for their upcoming Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander. They have also posted a teaser on their Facebook page in order to promote the trailer being released tomorrow.

Based off of the images that have been released so far as well as this new poster, it is really hard not to notice that they are heavily relying on the new video game reboot for inspiration. Is it just me? Or do you guys notice it too? Let me know in the comments below.

Watching over the teaser, I am trying immensely hard not to judge too quickly. However, there are certain elements of the teaser that come across as a bit off? Whether it’s because of how the teaser is edited or what not, something just feels disconnected.

The Tomb Raider franchise has been undergoing a resurgence in popularity in recent years. The first game was published by London-based company Einos (now Square Enix) in 1996, introducing the world to the now infamous archeologist Lara Croft. The series faced some ups and downs, especially after the ill-received 2003 release of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness. In 2013 the franchise was rebooted with a game that focused on the origin story of Lara Croft. The most recent game released in 2015 focused on the Rise of the Tomb Raider.

This is not the first time we have seen Lara Croft brought to the big screen. Paramount Pictures brought her to life with Angelina Jolie in the early 2000s.

The reboot also stars Dominic West, Walton Goggins, and Daniel Wu. It is being directed by Roar Uthaug, a Norwegian powerhouse that has become most known for his critically acclaimed film The Wave.

Tomb Raider will hit theaters on March 16, 2018. What do you think of the poster? How about the teaser? Let us know your thoughts below.
