The quality of the video game gameplaying experience continues to progress at an impressive rate. More and more games are weaving a cinematic feel that gives the player a more fulfilling and entertaining play. But it’s not the same for films based on video games. Most, if not all, are dead on arrival. The frustrating part of all of it is that these films take away the interactive experience and leaves them with something they could have enjoyed more at home.

Tomb Raider is a lot like that. On certain levels, it is one of the most physically demanding roles for Alicia Vikander, who takes up the title role. On others, it is yet another film adaptation of a video game franchise that repeats the same mistakes of its predecessors by failing to engage its audience with at least a decent story and relies too much on the video game elements to keep things interesting. Check out my full review here below.

Alicia Vikander cast in Tomb Raider

It was not that long ago when it was being reported that Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress Daisy Ridley was being courted to play the lead role of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider reboot. The idea sounded good on paper, as she has proven herself to be able to carry the weight of an iconic franchise on her shoulders, but seeing as her schedule would keep her from starring in another franchise, it would have been impossible to cast her in the new reboot.

Well, it didn’t take long for Warner Bros. to settle on a different actress and one that has appeared in a couple of their films. New reports confirm that Alicia Vikander has been named as the new Lara Croft. More on the story below.

Seeing as she can carry the weight of one franchise on her shoulders, it looks like she is in the running to play the lead character in the new Tomb Raider reboot. More on the story below.

The planned reboot of the Tomb Raider movie franchise has found itself a director. It’s being reported that Norwegian director Roar Uthaug has been set to helm the movie for GK Films, MGM and Warner Brothers. Uthaug’s previous credits include Cold Prey, Magic Silver, Escape, and The Wave, which was good enough to be chosen as Norway’s submission to be considered for a Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award nomination.

The project is also looking at a new writer. Geneva Robertson-Dworet, the writer behind the Black List script titled Hibernation, is in negotiations to pen the latest draft of the screenplay.
