Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Details Leaked

Tomb Raider 2018 LEAK: Release date and trailer OUTED for Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Straying away too far from the source material is frustrating from a fan standpoint.

The new project is titled Shadow of the Tomb Raider, with the code stating that the next Tomb Raider game will be "the climatic finale in Lara's origin story". And even though the sequel-baiting is there and the classic hero's journey is fulfilled in familiar ways, Uthaug's film is a lot of fun. Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander (for 2015's The Danish Girl) takes over the iconic role of Lara Croft, which was played twice by Angelina Jolie in the early 2000s. Refusing to accept his death, she soon discovers the site where he was last seen. It probably ends with taking over the world or something. Nothing with the chief villain (Walton Goggins at his most twitchy) carries any real danger.

"[Angelina] made that an iconic role". Trinity, a sort of hybrid evil corporation/cult, is there en masse, using slave labour to ransack the island and find the tomb for reasons unknown. In 2016, a Redditor spotted a presentation for "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" being worked on by a fellow passenger on a subway train. "I think that it's also important to see her fail and to see her pick herself and then keep on going".

Characterization isn't exactly Tomb Raider's strong point, either.

"The supporting cast are awful, overacting is an understatement", Wilkins gawked. Daniel Wu (Geostorm) as Lara's unlikely traveling companion Lu Ren presents opportunity for intrigue, until he's pushed aside halfway through the movie.

It's here that the film's set pieces really start to click, and Lara, whose bulging back muscles are shown off at every possible opportunity, is put through the ringer trying to escape from Vogel.

With the news out of the way, let's talk wishlist.

But one thing's for sure: you can count on Twitter to call keyboard warriors to account. He has been missing for seven years, and Ana (Kristin Scott Thomas), Lara's default guardian, asks her to claim control of her father's holdings company and the family manor - by finally conceding that he's gone - so she doesn't lose it. "I didn't want to make her rich, living in a mansion". Although that may be the best news fans could've hoped for - the film borrows narrative elements, visuals and the gritty tone of the rebooted games.

Beyond that, her character feels nearly joyless. Those movies knew who Lara Croft was and what they wanted her to be. Hollywood is also seeing a rise in female-driven action movies, making Tomb Raider an easy property to root for. Unwilling to tap into the Croft fortune because she believes her father is alive, despite what everyone around her is saying, Lara works as a bike courier to make due. That aforementioned climax will convince viewers that she can be a truly great Lara Croft.
