Tomb Raider's first look starring Alicia Vikander is out on its official page and the Lara Croft's revival looks promising.
Lara is dressed in guerilla outfit and the revival doesn't seem to be much different from the original.The gun packing heroine is seen with arrows and Vikander's looks are convincingly athletic.
However, the poster of Vikander has inspired several Twitter jokes, mocking her elongated neck, and many even compared her to E.T or a giraffe.

The reboot is an upcoming American action-adventure based on the 2013 video game by Crystal Dynamics. The main character, previously played by Angelina Jolie, will now focus on a younger Lara.
As for the teaser, the movie reveals several stunts with Lara passing hurdles with extreme caution and panache. As usual, facing obstacles is nothing new to Lara Croft and the story is shot in the backdrop of a jungle as seen in the game Crystal Dynamics created.
Tomb Raider is scheduled to be released in March 2018 worldwide. Fans of Lara Croft are anticipating a full-fledged spine-chilling adventure from the revival, and a full-length trailer is all set to hit the social media shortly.
