Warner Bros. have released an official photo from their upcoming Tomb Raider movie, featuring actor Alicia Vikander as the iconic Lara Croft. She's sporting the character's outfit from the 2013 reboot, even down to the climbing pick accessory.

“This movie will introduce Lara as a young woman who hasn’t yet found her way and her place in the world; a young woman with great spirit and potential,” said director Roar Uthaug in an interview with GQ. “We follow her struggles and her journey toward becoming the person she was meant to be and earning the role of Tomb Raider.”
As Polygon reports, the film is currently being shot in South Africa. Not much else is known about the plot, but Dominic West (The Wire) is set to play Lara’s father.
Tomb Raider will release in 2018.
