It is the start of the 2018 movie season as the marketing for some of the heavy hitters is starting to take shape. Tomb Raider will give us a full-frontal assault for the reboot of this franchise as there is a lot at stake.
Director – Roar Uthaug
For those of you that will be watching the trailer and never played the reboot of The Tomb Raider. You may think that this is a different Tomb Raider than from the video game and a reimagining of Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) when in actuality they are in lock step with each other. Tomb Raider had a very successful reboot in 2013 and a sequel that bridged the gap between the old-style games and the reboot in 2015. The trailer does show hints of their story being a bit different by adding depth to Lara Croft and I hope that it is enough. Tomb Raider will hopefully break the streak of sub-par video game based movies. If this new Tomb Raider can be the one movie to open the door for video game movies to be a powerful addition to the landscape and it will go down as a legend.
