The Tomb Raider game franchise has finally landed its new director, and he hails from one of my favorite game series of all time. Dead Space. Oh, and Battlefield Hardline. I’m just going to focus on the former, cool?
Alicia Vikander was wonderful in Ex Machina. She was also wonderful in The Man From UNCLE. I am hoping she will also be wonderful in Tomb Raider.
Daisy Ridley as Lara Croft? Bro. Daisy Ridley as anything.
Well, shit. Maybe Uncharted can’t get itself off the ground, but its predecessor which also riffed on That Indiana Jones Vibe seems to be pursuing a new movie. You know, Tomb Raider or whatever. I’m opaque. And clumsy.
Tomb Raider is getting itself a sequel, and goddamn I’m happy about it. Like a litany of other games want to play though, the sequel is coming in 2015. Goddamn, I’m not happy about that.
I dug Tomb Raider. It was Uncharted meets Katniss, and that is fucking perfect to me. Ain’t no Hunger Games…game (I think?) and Nathan Drake is off getting his beauty sleep before being revealed in 1080p glory on the PS4. Others must have felt the same way as myself too, cause the son of a bitch is going to wind up selling like hot cakes.
