When you’re young we all love an adventure and this March a ‘legend’ once again starts her adventure when Tomb Raider returns to our cinema screens early in 2018.
After yesterday Photoshop disaster of a movie poster, the real marketing for legendary female gaming hero as Warner Bros. has finally released the first UK Trailer. As Alicia Vikander takes over from Angelina Jolie but this is not the Jolie version but the gritty 2013 rehash of the Ubisoft game. But will this movie buck the trend of bad movie gaming adaptations? Check out the first footage now decide for yourselves!
The big difference between Jolie’s Croft and Alicia Vikander‘s Croft is she is playing the younger adventurous woman who is still trying to find her feet in the world. The action is the name of the game for this and with her now a dead father (Dominic West) you know who will inspire her on her chosen path. The whole package looks spot on but like many things, it’s early days and things do look promising.
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone.
Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. 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.
