NEW DELHI: It seems like there is more to the new Lara Croft than her choice of weapon.

Warner Bros. and MGM have shared the first official poster for the upcoming 'Tomb Raider' reboot, starring Vikander as the globetrotting archaeologist Lara Croft.

The captioned the poster, "Her legend begins. #TombRaider, in theaters March 2018."

The reboot comes more than 15 years after Angelina Jolie first brought the video game adventurer to the big screen, and the new 'Tomb Raider' finds Croft as an ordinary 21-year-old living in London.

Haunted by the apparent death of her archaeologist father (Dominic West), she soon sets out on a high-stakes mission to find him.

The climbing ax featured in the poster is actually from the video games that act as the movie's inspiration; it first appeared in the 2013 Tomb Raider game that rebooted the franchise, and shows up again in its follow-up, 'Rise of the Tomb Raider'.

They also dropped a short teaser alongside the poster.

Helmed by Roar Uthaug, the movie also stars Walton Goggins as the film's villain.
