Warner Bros. and MGM have released two new posters for the upcoming video game adaptation, Tomb Raider, which stars Oscar-winning Alicia Vikander in the role of Lara Croft.

While the old Lara Croft was well-known for her dual pistols, the new one is known for two things: her bow and arrow, and the ever-deadly climbing axes that she uses for both climbing and striking at her enemies. In the first poster, we see her with the climbing axe in front of her — and it can’t be forgotten that we did see her use it in the most recent trailer. The second poster shows Lara running through the jungle, in a weird, motion-blurred visual.

The official synopsis for Tomb Raider is below:

“Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) 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.”
