It was reported that Dominic West of The Wire will star as Lara’s father in the Tomb Raider movie. In addition, he will be acting alongside Walton Goggins of Sons of Anarchy, and Daniel Wu of Warcraft as a ship captain who works with Vikander’s character in her adventure. The untitled Tomb Raider movie will be available in theaters on March 16, 2018.
Furthermore, director Roar Uthaug of The Wave praised the 2013 reboot game and said his movie will try to adapt it. He quipped, “I think making Lara Croft feel like a real human being, that’s definitely something we want to bring to the big screen as well.”
“I think we’ll want to make people relate to Lara as a character,” he continued. “I’m hoping to bring some of my Norwegian sensibilities to the franchise.”
Meanwhile, no new Tomb Raider games have been announced as of late. However, a sequel to Rise of the Tomb Raider is rumored to launch soon, given the story that began with the 2013 reboot has been deemed as a trilogy. There was a leak in the past that said the third game will be Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Tomb Raider 2018 Storyline
The new Lara Croft feature is based on the reboot of the game in 2013. Moreover, it explores Lara’s desperate search for her father. Critics are expecting that the film will share something new and fresh about the protagonist.
As some may recall, Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie was the first blockbuster video game adaptation ever in the US. The 2001 movie grossed $274 million, followed by Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.
Lara Croft GO Leaked
Meanwhile, Lara Croft Go was accidentally leaked on the web. The revealed trophies from the Exophase site had heavily implied this. As of now, Sony still hasn’t made an official statement yet regarding the PS4 and PS Vita versions of the leaked game. However, there is a possibility that it would most likely be confirmed by Sony sometime soon.
The game was unexpectedly applauded. Another factor that made most players doubt its success is the genre, as the Tomb Raider series is an action-adventure game set in areas that could be deemed as labyrinths. The game has been praised by its fans for its innovative puzzles and aesthetics. It also managed to stay true to the Lara Croft series, according to most fans.
