Dark Horse Comics

My first memories of the Tomb Raider franchise are of an exaggeratedly buxom young woman in an outfit that was more bikini than khaki expedition wear. Several video games and a couple of films later, I was not any more impressed than I had been originally. The stories were good, the game play entertaining, but it always seemed a bit sexist. Yes, I know that was probably the point, but I prefer to have a story rest on its content rather than mammary glands. But it’s comics like this one, Tomb Raider II #1, that redeem the franchise for me.

Not to sound like that old guy, but I can remember playing the original Tomb Raider back in 1996, dear God I am old. I was in college and I was living with a few friends, and we were taking turns playing the game, while the other helped out by reading the walkthrough. I don’t think we ever beat it, but there were some fun times either way. I think I dabbled in the series as it continued on various systems, but never really got into enough that I finished the game. Any time a game revolves around timed jumps so perfectly timed, that is where I fail in video games.

But when I heard they were rebooting the series and giving us a sort of prequel, I was interested in checking it out. And much like most things on the internet, the initial buzz was not favorable, well that was until people actually got to see it and play it.

Tomb Raider

The Tomb Raider reboot that entered development not long ago has yet to evolve beyond the embryonic stage, but recently producer Graham King (The Departed) discussed the likely direction the new film will likely be taking with in an interview with Coming Soon.

According to King, the new Tomb Raider adventure being scripted by the Children of Men and Iron Man screenwriting team of Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby will follow the current trend of reviving franchises by exploring the origins of the Lara Croft character, previously played in two films by Angelina Jolie.

Social BlendThe latest edition of Social Blend features discussion on the coverage and news coming out from E3, along with a look into Slayer getting its own annual holiday celebrated among fans – among many other issues. Click here to listen to the latest episode.

During the episode we discuss some of the news and trailers that came out from E3 last week, including details about the new Lara Croft / Tomb Raider reboot, plus we debate how Halo 4 might turn out, following Microsoft‘s announcement they are starting a new trilogy of the game.

Additionally, being a bit of a group of metalheads, we belatedly celebrate International Day of Slayer – which initially began on 06/06/06. Geeks of Doom had some coverage of the big day right here too.

Finally, we also bring up the AMAZING PR commercial created by the Alamo Drafthouse made with the angry voicemail from a woman who got kicked out of the movie theater for texting during the film. You can check out the video ad below.

E3 2011: Trailer, Gameplay Shown Off For New ‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot

The Movie God   |  @   |

The decision to completely makeover Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise is looking more and more like a very smart decision. Not only did they give Miss Croft a much more realistic appearance, but the new game keeps getting solid buzz and a whole lot of people who were never interested in Tomb Raider now walk with piqued curiosities.

The one really important question that was left, however, was how exactly the gameplay would look. We’ve seen the new Croft and the new cinematic trailer (which can be seen below) is excellent, but until you see the game in action it’s hard to know what to expect—which is why in addition to said cinematic trailer, E3 saw the arrival of a new Tomb Raider gameplay demo as well!

Another intriguing factor is that the game starts from the beginning when Lara Croft first sets off to find her adventures as a young girl. Of course, things never go quite as planned…as you shall soon see.

You can check out both the trailer and the gameplay demo by heading below now!

A pair of writers have been hired to pen the script for a planned reboot of the Tomb Raider movie franchise. GK Films has brought in Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who have worked together on movies like Children of Men, Iron Man, and Cowboys & Aliens, to write the reboot…and they have big plans in mind.

The duo boldly state that they want to take the strong lead female character, Lara Croft, and put together an origins story that will see her joining the ranks of the all-time most badass female leads like Ripley from Alien (Sigourney Weaver) and Sarah Connor from the Terminator movies (most notably played by Linda Hamilton).
