We’ve seen it so many times.. company makes video game, people enjoy video game, movie company starts to notice video game, movie company makes video game movie and video game movie blows… that’s just the way it goes. Look at: Doom, Assassins Creed, Warcraft (which I enjoyed), Resident Evil, Silent Hill and the list goes on and on. All original video games, all terrible movies. But I’m holding out hope for this one!
Tomb Raider is one of the largest, most popular video game franchises ever made! The most recent game sold over 1 million copies! Considering each game runs 80-100 dollars… that’s some good coin! The movies haven’t even sucked all that bad either! Angelina Jolie originally played the character along side Gerared Butler and the movie was a decent success; making over 274 million dollars worldwide! Not too shabby for a video game franchise, but by recently rebooting the game franchise, they’ve also needed to consider rebooting the movie world. Which is exactly what they’re doing!
Alicia Vikander has been cast in the newest adaptation of the twenty-something, English explorer/ass-kicker! And we’ve got our first shots of her in the FULL Lara Croft getup!
CHECK HER OUT
Sure, to some it will just look like a pretty girl, in a tank-top running on something, but to people who have played the new series on their Xbox One or PlayStation 4’s… we see a spitting image of our heroin and, in my case, dream girl.
Jeez… Graphics SURE have come a LOOOOOOOONG way since the original conception of the character…
Say what you will.. she looks spot on! And even if the movie is a complete disaster (knock on wood that it’s amazing) at least they got the casting right! Only time will tell! Tomb Raider hits theaters on March 16, 2018.
