Lara Croft’s Legendary Story Inspires Canadians

Tomb Raider Runs, Cycles, and Climbs its Way into Theatres
March 16, 2018

Starting today, her legend begins. As Tomb Raider swings into Canadian theatres, Warner Bros. Pictures Canada is proud to have teamed up with three of the country’s top social influencers to celebrate the theatrical release of the film.

Fiercely independent, determined, and the ultimate adventure seeker, Lara Croft pushes beyond her limits and forges her own path.

Harnessing this spirit are three multi-talented Canadians, who each embody the characteristics of the Lara Croft character that Oscar winner, Alicia Vikander, brings to the big screen.

Showcasing their individual strengths in three different disciplines featured in the film (running, cycling, and climbing), these exceptionally active individuals test their limits and prove that the heart of Lara Croft lives in all of us.

Sonnie Trotter

One of the world’s most accomplished rock climbers, Sonnie has completed hundreds of first ascents around the globe and is the first Canadian to win a US National. He has made rapid first and second ascents of most of America’s hardest traditional climbs, and has also completed many first ascents in Canada and Europe, including some of the hardest climbs in the world. Today, some of Sonnie’s signature first ascent routes are still unrepeated in the climbing community.



Sasha Exeter

A former US college athlete and high-achieving member of the corporate world, Sasha has pushed through a kidney disease and fibromyalgia to become one of Canada’s most sought-after brand storytellers, and a fitness model to boot. She shares what inspires her in fashion, beauty, fitness, food, art, design, health, and wellness with other women on her lifestyle blog, SoSasha.



Melissa Offner

TV host, writer, traveler and in between her day-to-day responsibilities, a health and fitness content creator, Mel likes to inspire others, surf, and stay active with run groups, running through the city and natural settings. Balancing life as a Vancouver-based content creator and fitness instructor, Mel loves spending time exploring the world, and is always on the lookout for her next adventure.



Tomb Raider is now playing in theatres across Canada.
