A new Tomb Raider trailer was released Thursday and it offers a further look at Alicia Wikander's Lara Croft and her dangerous adventure for answers about her father’s death. This new Tomb Raider comes from director Roar Uthaug (The Wave, Escape), and also stars Dominic West, Daniel Wu, and Kristin Scott Thomas.

The movie is adapted from the popular “Tomb Raider” video game. Angelina Jolie held the role of Lara Croft in 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003’s Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

The new clip introduces us to the narrative. Upon arrival on a mysterious island, after a dangerous storm, Lara Croft encounters a man, played by Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight, Justified, Predators), who says he was taken there by Croft’s father seven years ago. “Now I see the likeness, the intelligence, the recklessness,” he says in the trailer.

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 rendition of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor” plays in the clip as Croft defies death to become the Tomb Raider.

In the clip, you can hear the slowed-down version of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor”! on top of a myriad of images of Lara Croft kicking ass.

Tomb Raider began as an action-adventure video game in 1996, going on to span multiple sequels. In 2013, the video game was rebooted with Tomb Raider and 2015 sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Check it out.

The official synopsis reads:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Leaving everything she knows behind, Lara goes in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.
