New Tomb Raider Motion Picture Based On 2013 Reboot
According to Alicia Vikander, the star of the upcoming Tomb Raider movie, the motion picture will be based directly off of the 2013 reboot of the series.
Previously, director Roar Uthaug suggested that the movies will be inspired by Crystal Dynamics’ Lara Croft tales. However, it appears as though Vikander was a lot more specific. Speaking to HitFix, she confirms that the reboot will take an important role in the movie.
“They told me they were doing the film based on the reboot of the game from 2013,” she said. “That is more of an origin story. You get into an emotional aspect of getting to know Lara hopefully in an in-depth way. So I hope that doing a film of the rebooted game will bring something new and fresh that’ll stand on its own two legs.”
Back in 2001, Angelina Jolie was selected to play the role of Lara Croft in Lara Croft Tomb Raider. She was the first one to ever embody in real life the fictional character. Despite her fear of water, Jolie did a decent job going everywhere and doing everything Croft would have. The motion picture was distributed by big house Paramount Pictures.
Since the 2013 reboot, Lara Croft’s design changed. Her physique is now petite compared to the heavy breasted classic model. As for her emotional state, the reboot brings us back to when she just became a raider. She was yet many hardships to go through, and many trials and experience to reach.
The movie based off of the reboot is currently in the works. It is scheduled for release on March 16, 2018, which is a little less than two years from now. How far into the story will it go has yet to be discussed.
