Tomb Raider 2018 LEAK: Release date and trailer OUTED for Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider 2018 LEAK: Release date and trailer OUTED for Shadow of the Tomb Raider

But in the context of the film, she's also far more rough around the edges.

When video game character Lara Croft first debuted in "Tomb Raider" on the big screen almost two decades ago, she was a daring, action-superwoman embodying a role reserved for men.

The new Lara Croft in the rebooted film is more athletic looking and dresses a lot more practically than the previous incarnation, which had Jolie as eye candy in a padded bra and hot trousers.

The new film, directed by Alicia's fellow Scandinavian Roar Uthaug, also stars Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Woman vs. Wild - In "Rise of the Tomb Raider", Lara battles with not only enemies from around the world, but the world itself. "I'm just gonna lock myself in a room and I'm gonna play some games", which was great'. "After I got the job, when we were discussing scripts and action scenes and stuff like that, we kept going back to the game to see what they have done and to be inspired".

"To say exactly where the story goes that makes Tomb Raider so unique would be a spoiler, but let's just say it stays surprisingly grounded".

I never played the Tomb Raider video games, read the comic book/graphic novels, or watched the Jolie films (which were negatively reviewed). She gets hurt and sometimes cries out into pain. With this fumble as the first outing, though, it's game over already.

The only parts of Tomb Raider I really enjoyed were the puzzles and the discovery of what really was behind the "Death Queen" and her entombment. Unthaug choreographs some decent action and effects sequences and Vikander does her best with limited resources, but the overall question you're left with after two hours is, quite simply, why? I wanted her on the streets of East London, working as a bike courier, trying to make ends meet. So insistent, in fact, that she bribes a reluctant Hong Kong sailor (Daniel Wu) to take her to a remote, risky island off the coast of Japan - her father's last-known destination.

Alicia Vikander plays a strong, resilient, and relatable Lara Croft. Of course, I knew how Angelina Jolie looked as the character. I certainly think so. Then again, if she wasn't making bad decisions, we wouldn't get to see her make the daring escapes.

Lara's journey to adulthood reminds Vikander of her own experiences of growing up and her decision at the age of 20 to quit ballet dancing to become an actress. "I started jumping up and down screaming, running around saying, 'Thank you!" She worked really hard with the stunt team preparing her for all the stunts that she had to go through. That's a word you can apply to more or less the whole movie.

Well, the movie has to come from character. "At first it was fun, but later I felt exhausted and bored, and then some unusual ideas came into my head - that's when I started to understand Lu Ren". A lot of Tomb Raider is understandably gray since large portions of the movie take place in caves or tombs, but whenever Lara is out in the jungles or biking through the city the movie gives off attractive bouts of color.
