Square Enix has released a cinematic trailer for Shadow of the Tomb Raider today which provides us with a glimpse of the title. Yesterday, we reported that the trailer for the game was already leaked, confirming the rumored title and the platforms on which it would be releasing.
The new 2018 film, simply titled Tomb Raider, is an action-adventure film directed by Roar Uthaug and written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons, from a story by Evan Daugherty and Robertson-Dworet.
In a screenshot shared by the Eurogamer, Square Enix's HTML revealed that the Shadow of the Tomb Raider is going to be the "climactic finale" of Lara Croft's origin story. It's hard to believe the cinematography in an action film could be this boring, but Tomb Raider proves it can.
If all goes according to current plans and there are no delays, the trilogy-maker will also arrive in just under three years as it has been scheduled for a September 14th release.
"Good action can wallpaper over any number of flaws in these kinds of movie, though, and Tomb Raider has stellar set-pieces to spare". The caption for the video states, "Experience Lara Croft's defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider".
Graham King: I thought we could make a genre picture that actually had a lot of heart and a lot of emotion, and showed us the rise of a young girl in London to being Lara Croft. Like a year ago, the festival will feature panels from some of the biggest names in the industry.
Tomb Raider is perhaps too steeped in cinema to feel truly original when adapted directly to the big screen.
This year's Tribeca Film Festival will include an exclusive demo for Shadow of the Tomb Raider and a panel about upcoming PS4 exclusive, God of War. Now, on the eve of the film's release, Lara's next video game has been revealed. Those involved in the development of the "Tomb Raider" reboot were very much aware of this problem from the outset, though. We knew that a modern day audience would really appreciate this.
