In keeping with the announcements about the big screen debuts of comic and adventure films that are coming at us, here is the one saying that “Tomb Raider” is opening today in theaters across the country. I’ve shared a couple of the trailers and it does look rather good so as an incentive here is the theatrical poster, the premise and casting.
The Premise: Tomb Raider is an upcoming 2018 American action-adventure film directed by Roar Uthaug and written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons. It is primarily based on the 2013 video game of the same name by Crystal Dynamics, and will be a reboot of the Tomb Raider film series. The film tells about the first expedition of Lara Croft, in which she embarks on a perilous journey to her father’s last-known destination, hoping to solve the mystery of her father’s disappearance.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve noted in the second trailer post, I just have too many things going on right now to see this film early in its theatrical run so I might need to take a pass on it. I’d like to see it but cannot promise when so its very unlikely a movie review will be loaded onto the website. What about you though? Are you checking this one out? Let me know down in the comments below but don’t leave any spoiler stuff since that is no bueno.
