Although Alicia Vikander‘s Tomb Raiderwasn’t a hit with me, it helped reinforce the notion that there was a desire to have more female-led action films. And now it looks like the sequel may have found its director.
According to new reports, Free Fire‘s Ben Wheatley has been tapped to direct the Tomb Raider sequel, and he will be using a script written by Amy Jump. More on the report below.
A new gameplay walkthrough video has been released for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the third installment in the rebooted video game series.
The new video is titled “Welcome to Paititi” and introduces a new location. Paititi is described as the largest hub that’s ever been created for a Tomb Raider game. In it players can find side missions to complete, discover crypts and tombs, and barter for new outfits, weapons, and more.

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.
