Lara Croft Specially the newer version has been one of the most favored and most influential characters raised from video games ever. Time magazine mentioned the Lara Croft Second in the list of the most influential video game characters of all times after Peach.

 

“If old-school Lara Croft embodies much of what’s wrong with female representation in an interactive medium that as of 2016 counts over 40% of its adherents as women, new-school Lara Croft has plenty to say about what’s right.”

Time Magazine

Funny headlines and the buzz for the poster

“Tomb Raider poster gets it in the neck” Many fans say. Although the trailer seemed to be satisfying for now for the tomb raider fans but most of the funny and buzz headlines and also social media reactions were mostly focused on the “NECK”. It seems like one of the most popular poses for movies posters, A woman looking back at the camera while going away. It gives you the feeling like she is going some where far away or will have a hard journey. No one have problem with that but everybody seems to have a thing with the neck. The neck is made a bit longer that it should be. They should have Over-edited the poster pose to ake it stronger but they made it ridicules some how like a dinosaur.

 

 

 

A history on the “Tomb Raider in The movies”

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider first was in a 2001 action-adventure film based on the popular Tomb Raider video game series featuring the character Lara Croft that first  Angelina Jolie became the actress to play that role. The first version was directed by Simon West and revolves around Lara Croft trying to obtain ancient artifacts from the enemy, the Illuminati. The film was released on June 15, 2001, and received generally many negative reviews from critics although Angelina Jolie was praised for her gender widening role and performance. Tomb Raider was the highest-grossing film on its opening weekend at the time.

Later in 2003 Another title came out Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) was also based on the Angelina Jolie acting for the role and basically now great plan, screenplay and depth but focus on the character Lara Croft played by Angelina Jolie. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life  Based on Angelina Jolie staring supporting roles include Gerard Butler, Ciarán Hinds, Chris BarrieAn bacame an international film project between the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan, it was directed by Jan de Bont.

Like the first version, The Cradle of Life received also mostly negative reviews, though with some improvement on its predecessor and still loved Jolie’s performance as Lara Croft. The movies did not repeat its financial success basically because the first one was so disappointing that fans did not feel like going for the next one. Maybe the motivation behind making the second one was the high numbers they got from the first film this one only made grossing $156 million compared to the first one’s $274 million. and the director did not make a movie ever again.

The new Tomb raider movie coming in march 2018

Main Plot: Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.
Director: Roar Uthaug
Writer: Geneva Robertson-Dworet (screenplay)
Stars: Alicia Vikander, Walton Goggins

Lara Croft fans are now in a bit of relief when the first trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie was released,Cause it was actually a good one unlike the poster. We should admit there was a certain sense of déjà vu that accompanied the new footage, wasn’t it. Many books and video games come to movies and many have good and epic releases but Tomb raider has not been one of those epic ones. The past movie versions has actually been more close to a disaster like Max Payne movie that ruined it for many loyal Max Payne fans.  Every body is holding fingers crossed to see this new movie become an epic experience of what the fans love and experienced in the video games.
