Lara Croft is returning to the big screen - and Weston-super-Mare’s Odeon cinema is offering three lucky readers a pair of tickets each.

The famous character of the cinematic and video game world is portrayed by Ex-Machina star Alicia Vikander, playing a 21-year-old adventurer 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 has truly gone.

Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara cannot 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.

The stakes could not be higher for Lara, who must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.

Angelina Jolie made the role famous in two Tomb Raider films during the early noughties, with the 2018 reboot serving as a precursor to those films.

Appearing alongside Vikander is The Hateful Eight and Sons of Anarchy star Walton Goggins, Dominic West and legendary British actor Derek Jacobi.

Screenings of Tomb Raider began last week at the Odeon, in The Centre.

The Mercury has teamed up with the Odeon to offer three lucky readers a pair of tickets to the showing of their choice.
