So much has been happening in the world of Lara Croft since we gave you your first look at Alicia Vikander in the role back in March of last year and of course we told you about last month's Art Contest. Now with this Friday's release of Tomb Raider, we’ve been pulling together all the events, interviews, videos, contests and activities in one place and will continue to do so as we draw ever closer to the premiere on March 16.

Earlier this week came the release of Tomb Raider VR: Lara's Escape, where you become Lara Croft in this interactive cinematic VR experience as you are pursued by Trinity soldiers and your only means of escape is to descend into an ancient tomb. Use Lara's flashlight to explore crumbling caverns in the dangerous, trap-filled cave. Wield Lara's bow and climbing axe to escape capture as you rappel, climb and zip-line to safety.
Also this week, the five winners of the Tomb Raider Fan Art Contest were announced. Congratulations to Sergio Murrieta, Edz Gatdula, Reza Maulana, Camille Pelletier and Moses Ruperto for these winning entries:
