This evening the intrepid cast and crew of Tomb Raider made their way to London’s Leicester Square to tumble gracefully down the red carpet of the film’s UK Premiere. This is the second time the EIDOS video game has been adapted for the big screen, and Ex Machina’s Alicia Vikander takes over from Angelina Jolie in the role of Lara Croft.
Starring alongside Vikander are Walton Goggins, Dominic West, Kristen Scott-Thomas, Daniel Wu and more.
The basic plot goes back to Lara Croft’s early days, and portrays her as the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, who must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.
Scott Davis and Colin Hart were on the carpet to dazzle and delight – here are their interviews.
Tomb Raider is released on the 14th of March in the UK, and the 16th of March in the US.

Tomb Raider Official Synopsis
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, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. 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.
Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind 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.
