So many films seem to be getting reboots or revamps or even those “here’s what happened before you came aboard” sort of things so why not do this for Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider. The first full trailer for the film that will be released on Warner Brothers hit a few days ago and I am sharing it with you now as I begin to prepare myself for the annual NY Comic Con. Check it out.
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 think back upon the original “Tomb Raider” film which starred Angelina Jolie, I think that I only saw the first one and not the sequel. It was fun but I wasn’t the biggest gamer so the property wasn’t super important to me. I had other interests to attend to and while I am still not the biggest gamer, I do like the look of this trailer and will likely try to see it in the theaters when it arrives. Vikander looks great in some of the action scenes we get here and depending on my scheduling perhaps I can fit it in. What did you readers think about this trailer? Does it spark a little interest in your seeing the film? Chime in down below. If you are a gaming person, what do you think about the character being brought to life on the big screen – Again? Ciao for now and oh yeah, as I mentioned I WILL be hitting the NY Comic Con, so you are going to want to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and especially Instagram because I will be posting a lot during the adventuring. Hopefully I will run into some of you at the convention as well.
