Warner Bros. ‘Tomb Raider’ 1st official trailer released

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first of what will likely be several trailers leading up to the release of Tomb Raider. The film, slated for theatrical premiere on Mar. 16 next year, stars Alicia Vikander as the video game character Lara Croft first played on film by Angelina Jolie.

From the looks of the 2-minute trailer this film has the potential to be quite good or really really bad. But how often do you get a decent film from a video game franchise? OK, Resident Evil has been successful, but the majority of live action films based on games have been horrible: Max Payne, Mortal Kombat, Doom, to name a few, those movies are basically unwatchable.

The first Tomb Raider films: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003), don’t exactly score high on Metacritic either, with 33 and 42 Metascores respectively. The sequel did get better reviews from movie critics than the first installation, so maybe Vikander can continue the trend and bring a revived love of the franchise.

The screenplay for Tomb Raider was written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet with movie directed by Norwegian  filmmaker Roar Uthaug.

Synopsis:

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar-winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner. The film¹s production begins on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the wildly popular videogame franchise from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.
