The First Image From The Tomb Raider Reboot Has Been Released20:33:00
Good Evening Lovelies,
I know I don’t normally blog in the evening’s but I had a few things to tell you all and I just couldn’t wait to share the news. Especially when this news features the return of one of my favourite game/film characters of all time.
Taking over from Angelina Jolie, Alicia Vikander will portray Lara Croft in the newest adventure from the series and in this first look image, she looks ready for action…
The film follows Lara Croft in her earlier years, as she experiences the disappearance of her father and the action-packed life that is laid out before her. At the age of 21, Lara is working as a bike courier in East London and struggling to pay for her college and rent fees. Unhappy with how her life is, Lara refuses to take over her father’s business as it means he is truly gone.
Advised by others to admit that her father is dead, Lara turns against them to try and solve what happened to him. Heading to the last place he was believed to be, a tomb on a mythical island in Japan, her mission begins and it is isn’t an easy one. Suddenly everything is up against her and she must use her adventurous spirit to beat those against her, earning the nickname tomb raider along the way.
Director Roar Uthaug said about the film, "Being a long-time fan of the game, it’s important to me to honour the Lara Croft legacy and capture that spirit. It’s great to know that there’s such a passionate global fan base for Lara and her world, and our commitment to that will be evident in our movie. What’s different about this “Tomb Raider” movie is that it’s an origin story for the big screen, focusing not only on Lara’s strength and physical accomplishments but her humanity. We see Lara as a young woman, smart and capable but largely unfocused, and follow her on a dangerous journey that will push her to her limits in every sense, and allow her to hone the skills she needs to ultimately become who she was meant to be. As Lara Croft, Alicia Vikander is brilliant. She brings great depth to a complex role that is both physically and emotionally demanding. We hope this film will delight fans around the world and add another intriguing chapter to the Tomb Raider story."
Also, speaking about the film, producer Graham King said, "I’m excited to be a part of this new Tomb Raider story, which introduces the origins of Lara Croft and delves into the humanity of this character. Alicia Vikander is a gifted actress that brings so much to this role. Our director, Roar Uthaug is extremely passionate and has an eye for scale as well as gritty realism. It’s been a wonderful experience shooting in various locations around South Africa and we hope that using these actual locations will give a grounded sense of reality. It’s our goal to make a film that will not only delight fans but enthral a world-wide audience."
Who is excited for this film lovelies?
