Like Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Vikander as Croft is yet another example of how powerful women are changing the face of heroes in action-packed movies, and we are here for it.

Splashians, let me begin by saying I loved Tomb Raider.

A new trailer for Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander has arrived. However, if it's more in line with what we got in that first trailer, this may be yet another notch in the belt of "horrible video game adaptations".

Hopefully, with Oscar victor and Ex Machina actress Alicia Vikander in the role of Lara Croft, we'll not only have ourselves a decent actress, but also a far better female action hero than the overly-sexualised Angelina Jolie interpretation of the character back in the early noughties.

The frustrated customers took to social media and reported long wait times when they called the bank's customer service line. Danny, a ConsumerAffairs reader from Williamson, Ga., told us that his Wells Fargo account went in the red by $60,000.

Croft also learns of Trinity, a dark organization that's "looking to start a global genocide", which her father tells her in a recording she must stop. A lot of the action sequences in this footage should look very familiar to anyone who has played the games... even if those same sequences ended much worse for some of us.

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. And, much like the Tomb Raider reboot game, also seemingly to try and avoid killing herself in as many elaborate and gruesome manners as possible. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or goal, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Her jounrey won't be easy because a group of bad guys calling themselves "Trinity" are on the island.

Tomb Raider, directed by Roar Uthaug, will be released in United Kingdom cinemas in March 162018.
