The choice ended up selling a lot more games and starting a movie franchise. Straying away too far from the source material is frustrating from a fan standpoint.
A line of text hidden in the code of the site states Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be "the climactic finale of Lara's origin story".
Tomb Raider is in Australian cinemas now.
In fairness to Vikander, she does a reasonable job of characterising a tough, yet vulnerable, female lead with a complex relationship with her missing father. She's handsome, tough, and has the acting chops to pretty much pull anything off. It probably ends with taking over the world or something. We are also introduced to the villain of the piece Mathias Vogel (Goggins). Trinity, a sort of hybrid evil corporation/cult, is there en masse, using slave labour to ransack the island and find the tomb for reasons unknown.
A splash page went live this morning teasing something Tomb Raider related being revealed tomorrow morning. The action isn't this movie's high point, with one big exception. And that's what sells tickets for the Tomb Raider franchise. It's not the glowing success that Wonder Woman was back last Summer. Lu Ren is then treated as an afterthought, playing no real consequential role going forward. That has her hooking up with a drunk sailor (Daniel Wu of Geostorm and Warcraft), whose dad is the one that took Lord Croft to the tomb of Himiko. Derek Jacobi - still remembered for I, Claudius back in the 1970s - has an even smaller role as a lawyer. It's also that she's so prone to make bad decisions or throw out any semblance of common sense.
Beyond that, her character feels nearly joyless. Of course, I knew how Angelina Jolie looked as the character.
Winning an Academy Award for best supporting actress for her portrayal of Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl, Vikander's petite frame does not immediately conjure up the image of Lara Croft. The comments were obviously made to get a rise out of people and he succeeded.
There's no playbook for how to make a movie "fun", but Tomb Raider is so wedded to its gritty mandate that it smothers out any variance in the personality.
Alicia Vikander's Lara is also much more charismatic than her predecessor. The way the film is structured in its first act the audience fully understand Lara's motivations, she's a kid with a chip on her shoulder and is always out to prove herself without a handout from anyone.
While he had praise for the "great" lead, there was no love lost on the rest of the cast.
Will Shadow of the Tomb Raider release on PS4?: Surprisingly, yes, this game will be coming to the PS4.
The Tomb Raider movie will open nationwide this Friday and is already receiving some mixed reviews from critics overseas.
