It looks promising and a couple of the scenes look like they were taken right out of the game. Alicia Vikander looks like Lara Croft in that outfit, but shes a very small woman (height and muscle) in comparison to Lara Croft in the video game. I hope her physical performance is believable considering how many men she'll have to kill. To hell with the double guns tho. I'd rather see her using only the bow and climbing axe the entire movie.. and maybe an assault rifle. lol.

I'll still go see this, but the reviews are mixed and its tanking already.  Alicia Vikander is a pretty girl, but honestly I was never sold on her look. Shes just too petite and short for the roll. Her body has limits to how much muscle she could fill out with, and she looks very young. I feel bad because I watched some behind the scenes and she really put in a lot of work out time and grueling stunts to make the movie. While Angelina Jolie was picked because of her sex appeal, she's 3 inches taller and looked older, even though she was four years younger when she did the first movie. Jolie filled the roll of a more sexual Lara Croft and looked the part. Vikander doesn't really look the part of the new Lara Croft to me. Shes wearing the same outfit, but the more board shoulders and toned biceps aren't there.

Maybe it shouldn't matter, and in any other movie it maybe wouldn't. But for a video game movie, you gotta be believable as the character, or you lose all the fanboys/fangirls.

I do want to see this movie but I'm not interested enough to see it in the theaters. Mostly because of two things. I love the new tomb raider games but that timed exclusivity bull shit for rise of the tomb raider being on Xbox for a solid year before ps4 resulted in me waiting a year to play the game and a year of my interest in it being destroyed. Just like i waited to play the game i can wait a year to watch this movie on cable at this point. The second issue for me is that Alicia Vikander doesn't physically look like Lara Croft from the new games. I didn't care for Angelina Jolie in the original tomb raider movies but when I look at pictures comparing her lara croft to the new one, Angelina's looks like she could kick her ass easily.

      The Disney princess part at the end is great. I loved the first movie.

      Looks like aliens are terraforming the planet and making monsters at the same time, which is a combination of awesome to me.
      Now for a brief rant.. The tv commercials were better than this trailer. In the commercials it looks like she is the pro going in to figure out wtf is going on, but in the trailer she's only going in to save her husband because Hollywood still doesn't think a female character can actually have professional motivation to do shit on their own without attaching a man to the woman's goals.

      I'm glad Wasp will finally get some screen time, Marvel needs more strong females in their movies.

      I was under the impression that these movies have been getting filmed for about 3-4 years already.. and they'd start releasing a new Avatar movie once a year. But they're still casting roles!? Wow. At this rate I won't even expect Avatar 2 to come out in 2020. Also, I haven't seen this actor in much besides Fear the Walking Dead. While hes probably the best actor in that show (thats not saying much honestly), I don't see him doing well as a lead in a major movie franchise like this.
