In a world overflowing with male action heroes, it's always nice when Hollywood remembers that, oh yeah, women can be badass too. Which is why Angelina Jolie's Tomb Raider (circa ye olden days of 2001) will always have a place in our hearts.

In case you're wondering what this movie is about, here's the plot description (via Vanity Fair): "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."

Here for it. Tomb Raider hits theaters on March 16, 2018.
