Notably, the chronicle of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider has been retold several times now. Not to mention the video games that had been released over the years, again in reference to the original franchise of the movie.
But, this time, Norwegian film director namely Roar Uthaug went all the way back to the origin plot of Tomb Raider, trying to show us a more human perspective of the movie heroine.
Interestingly enough, this Tomb Raider will capture a young Lara Croft, starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander that the public eye is not used seeing. By going back to the beginning, Vikander will expose the youthful, though smart Lara Croft who is trying to pursue her purpose and direction in life.
In the movie, Croft is vulnerable yet independent which opens a new side of her personality something that people did not ever imagine she even had. Director Uthaug said that this Lara Croft character will be even more likable due to the emotional resemblance being revealed.
As the movie finalizes, Vikander exposes how this character matures from all brutal survival adventures and grows into being the fatal woman the Lara Croft we all know. Of course, the legend of the story still circulates throughout the movie as Croft faces life threats in almost every scene of the movie. But, isn`t that what makes this movie amazing?
These days, Vikander is constantly overwhelmed with interviews about the movie reboot. In addition, there are the alleged mixed feelings about the Lara Croft we know, iconic actress Angelina Jolie.
She knows that everybody is used to Jolie`s version of Lara Croft but is confident that the audience will also fall for this different type of Croft. Also, a big differentiation is that Vikander is not hyper-sexualized like the latest version of Croft and she even makes jokes about it as reported in Vanity Fair.
Even though early, gamers think that this Tomb Raider version might be the perfect base for a new adventurous video game bringing to a breakthrough in the world of video games.
Similar to what happened in 2013 when popular video game Tomb Raider was released, this movie will definitely inspire for a new game being launched. Perhaps, this upcoming Tomb Raider story can stimulate people even more than just playing video games.
Maybe this time they can actually bet on young Lara whether she will overcome all challenges that life throws at her. For example, she can be chased by bikers, knife-wielding thieves or maybe she can be fighting against stormy seas and slippery cliffs. So, why not creating a Live Casino about that and actually earn some real cash.
Despite all hateful rumors that this Oscar girl is just not cut out for this role, Vikander is confident, persistent and believes how she conveyed this Lara Croft version in her own manner. Her words lead us fantasizing about what will happen in theatres on the 16th of March this year when the premiere of this movie is about to happen.
