With production on the Tomb Raider movie-reboot still in full swing, some media have managed to acquire pictures of Alicia Vikander in her Lara Croft wardrobe. The shots reveal the movie is mimicking the look of Lara Croft as she appeared in 2013’s Tomb Raider game. However it’s of no big surprise as the film makers already revealed the recent games served as a big inspiration to nail down the tone of the movie.
Needless to say, it’s comforting to see Hollywood is not trying to ‘’reinvent’’ the character once more as had happened with Angelina Jolie’s iteration of Lara Croft. With games becoming more and more cinematic experiences it should become easier for film makers to adapt the look and feel of games to the big screen. After all, that is what people familiar with the game are expecting.
The new Tomb Raider movie is scheduled for a release somewhere in 2018. What do you think about these photos? Does it look promising to you?
