Tomb Raider (2018)

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.
