Overall, I think it looks ok based on trailer, but regarding story, I have mixed thoughts about it. It would have been good if they adopted a more experience-based approach sticking more towards Lara's individuality w.r.t. the world elements around her(see All Is Lost) instead of this 'saving the fate of humanity' trope which is too common nowadays for marketing, but that's just me.

It's also observable that several of the sequences are taken directly from both Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider perhaps to attract new fans getting involved in the reboot games. Well, those fans might have a different experience of those games coming from movie to have weird repetitiveness and those who have played it, they are confused between 'copy+paste/laziness' or 'being faithful'...And how come suddenly previous TR movies getting an unjustified praise after this trailer only because a particular actress visually looked more close to classic Lara? Wow...Those movies are awful...

I like the running of her from the front in the trailer..It reminds me of how I was curious to see the face of her while running in the Core Design's classics where she kind of stuck around the corners and the camera would shift/restrict towards the front. Good times...:teapot

It seems like an intriguing Movie in my opinion but it's not one of my favorite Video Game series so I don't know as much about it as I do a lot of other Video Game series. :p
