The quality of the video game gameplaying experience continues to progress at an impressive rate. More and more games are weaving a cinematic feel that gives the player a more fulfilling and entertaining play. But it’s not the same for films based on video games. Most, if not all, are dead on arrival. The frustrating part of all of it is that these films take away the interactive experience and leaves them with something they could have enjoyed more at home.
Tomb Raider is a lot like that. On certain levels, it is one of the most physically demanding roles for Alicia Vikander, who takes up the title role. On others, it is yet another film adaptation of a video game franchise that repeats the same mistakes of its predecessors by failing to engage its audience with at least a decent story and relies too much on the video game elements to keep things interesting. Check out my full review here below.
Lara Croft is back in Warner Bros.’ Tomb Raider, the latest incarnation of the video game icon rooted in the recent video game release and played by Alicia Vikander as a burgeoning heroine to reflect the times.
Recently, the new title star of the franchise and the director Roar Uthaug chatted about the film with Los Angeles press and shared the process of bringing to life what makes Croft so iconic while keeping true to what it means to be a heroine in this day and age. See below for more of what they had to say about the new film.
Warner Bros. has released the newest trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft.
Based on the video game series of the same name, the film will center on the title adventurer who travels to a fabled temple where her father was last seen. Along her journey, she will discover the secrets to his disappearance, and the nefarious organization who seeks to use the temple’s hidden treasures for genocide. Check out the full trailer below.
The first trailer has been released for Tomb Raider, a reboot of the movie franchise based on the hit 2013 video game…which was itself a reboot of the game series.
The movie stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) as Lara Croft, the daughter of an adventurer who sets off on a quest to the last known destination of her father, who mysteriously disappeared years earlier.
