Nonetheless, Hollywood refuses to give up on such projects, and thus we'll soon have Fassbender's wife, Oscar victor Alicia Vikander, stepping into the role first played on-screen by Angelina Jolie when Tomb Raider swings into theaters this March. We liked what we saw, for sure, but it was an odd blend of action and hard hitting story found in the later video games.

Investigating the mystery surrounding her father's (Dominic West) death, Lara will embark on an adventure that pushes her to the limits of her strengths, forcing her to use an inner skill and natural talent for exploration that she never even knew she had. What she'll discover, as the above video makes clear, is Walton Goggins and a secret organization known as Trinity that apparently is intent on carrying out some sort of global genocide. All this after she sets out to carve her own path rather than taking over the reins of her father's global empire. The latest trailer shows us a lot of what's been added to the film beyond the inspiration of the game series-and it's pretty much all about the legacy of Lara's mysterious dad.

Sweden's oscar-winning Alicia Vikander takes over the Angelina Jolie role, and Hollywood has, perhaps surprisingly, entrusted the relaunch of what everyone hopes will be a lucrative franchise to an award-winning Norwegian director, Roar Uthaug.
