‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot Will Draw Inspiration From Video Games | Film News
Despite information about the film being kept under wraps, Norwegian Director Roar Uthaug has revealed some information regarding the upcoming adaptation of the popular Tomb Raider video game series. Serving as a reboot to the 2000 film series that starred Angelina Jolie, audiences will get to see a very different Lara Croft from before.
During an interview (via Den of Geek), the director explained “I think making Lara Croft feel like a real human being, that’s definitely something we want to bring to the big screen as well. I think we’ll want to make people relate to Lara as a character. I’m hoping to bring some of my Norwegian sensibilities to the franchise”.
For those unfamiliar, Lara Croft is an iconic video game character that originally appeared in the Tomb Raider franchise. She gained recognition for being one of the first female video game heroes, however received criticism for becoming a sex symbol.
The Director’s comments reflect upon the franchises’ own reboot back in 2013, which saw a much more realistic Lara Croft rise to the title of ‘Tomb Raider’. This iteration was received well by the public, who viewed the change as revolutionary to the series.
