Alicia Vikander is Lara Croft in first Tomb Raider trailer

Warner Bros

Just a day after Warner Bros. released the first trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot, the studio dropped a behind the scenes featurette that demonstrates the extreme lengths the Oscar victor went through to bring the iconic heroine back to the big screen.

Lara Croft is back doing what she does best: raiding tombs and jumping off things. "She has all the fierce, tough, curious, intelligent traits, but we've stripped away all of her experience", said Vikander in July, as more photos from the movie were released.

No matter how many times they are critically panned, Hollywood continues to make movies based on video games.

In this new version, Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished years earlier.

Tomb Raider is an MGM and Warner Bros.co-production with GK Films.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Shares Bought by Brighton Jones LLC
Following the sale, the director now directly owns 1,168,283 shares in the company, valued at approximately $184,098,035.14. Fox Run Management L.L.C. bought a new stake in shares of Apple in the 1st quarter valued at approximately $201,000.

We'll have to wait until 2018 to see how this adaptation of Tomb Raider fares.

In addition to Vikander, the film also stars Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Daniel Wu, and Dominic West as Richard Croft.

She absolutely refuses to take over her father's business, choosing instead to believe that he's still alive somewhere even after he disappeared while she was just barely a teen. However, the film veers away from the original story by introducing elements from other entries, like a strong focus on the disappearance of Lara's father. And by the looks of the first trailer, she's earned every penny of if for the stunt-heavy action demands the film is placing on her. For one action scene, we used the London venue for Olympic rafting.

Judging by the trailer and the movie posters, Alicia Vikander has got it in her to be one sassy son of a gun to complete her mission. It's a "treacherous" journey, to be sure, and Lara "must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown".
