Warner Bros. and MGM have announced that they are partnering with GK Films to reboot the Tomb Raider film franchise, similarly to the way that Square Enix have rebooted the character and her games in Tomb Raider (2013) and Rise of the Tomb Raider (2015). The new games completely reset the history and story of Lara Croft, replacing the 90s sex symbol with a more grounded and realistic heroine.
The new movie is set for release on 16 March 2018 and will star Alica Vikander as the titular character, Lara Croft. Vikander is best known for her extraordinary work in The Danish Girl (for which she won an Oscar) and, my personal favourite, Ex Machina.
Angelina Jolie, who played the role of Lara Croft in the first and second attempts at bringing the famous game character to the big screen, managed to pull the role off quite well. Jolie’s role as Lara Croft allowed the original two films to gross well over $430-million USD, worldwide. Sadly, the new film will have nothing to do with the previous movies as it will act as a reboot of the entire franchise; and it is a reboot that we are very excited for.
