Tomb Raider trailer breakdown
We were all pleasantly surprised with the news of a franchise being rebooted a year ago, when Alicia Vikander was signed on to play action-adventurer Lara Croft. And just a couple of days ago, both video games and film fans were treated to an impressive first, promo poster for the new Tomb Raider movie, starring the Academy Award winning actress. Film fans are aware of the fact the video game adaptations in film has been notoriously terrible. And as usual, when we are introduced to another adaptation, we want to hope for the best. Without heightening expectations, the poster, followed by the first official trailer for the film, looks very promising. In fact, to a certain extent, it’s actually quite impressive. The initial take delivers a message of a more grounded and gritty version of Lara Croft. IGN actually went as far as comparing the scenes from the trailer, side by side, with in-game cut-scenes of the 2013 version of the game Tomb Raider - available on multiple platforms. The video game instalment was also sort of a reboot of the gaming franchise. It was only appropriate for the live-action film to take on the same approach to Lara’s origins. Vikander’s portrayal of Lara Croft, from what we’ve seen from the first trailer and still images, seems to hit the right note with fans of the game. We don’t have to worry about her acting abilities either; she’s an Oscar winner after all. Let’s also focus on her physical attributes, as she takes on this gruelling task of being a modern day Indian Jones with the added element of pure badassery, á la Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor. As you’ll be able to see in the trailer, there seems to be the right amount of subtle humour in an action infested, character driven film. What you can expect is a certain gravitas from the beautiful and talented Alicia Vikander. Not to knock the former performances by Angelina Jolie in both 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003’s Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, but with modern aesthetics and technology, we’ll be exposed to possibly the best version of Lara on the big screen. The ‘teaser’ trailer can be seen on YouTube now, and hopefully, it gives you a more favourable nostalgia of the video game franchise with a more realistic approach. The newly rebooted Tomb Raider is scheduled to open in theatres on March 16, 2018. It also stars Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, Dominic West, Nick Frost, alongside others. Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug, the film is presented under the MGM/Warner Bros. banner, in association with Square Enix and GK Films.
