It was not that long ago when it was being reported that Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress Daisy Ridley was being courted to play the lead role of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider reboot. The idea sounded good on paper, as she has proven herself to be able to carry the weight of an iconic franchise on her shoulders, but seeing as her schedule would keep her from starring in another franchise, it would have been impossible to cast her in the new reboot.

Trailer For Disaster Movie ‘The Wave’ Released
  |  @   |  

A trailer has been released for The Wave (or Bølgen), a Norwegian disaster flick directed by Roar Uthaug, whose previous credits include Cold Prey (Fritt vilt) and Escape (Flukt). Back in November Uthaug was hired for a much higher profile project, the planned reboot of the Tomb Raider movie franchise.
