Tomb Raider reboot

Postby Tyler » Thu Feb 26, 2015 8:10 am

Tomb Raider is getting rebooted. I was kind of excited to hear this until....

‘Tomb Raider’ Reboot Fast-Tracked With New Script from ‘TMNT’ Writer
MGM Studios and Warner Bros have partnered to bring ‘Tomb Raider’ Lara Croft back to theaters – with a new writer to script the reboot.

Not as bad as we thought?

"Still, before Tomb Raider fans get too fired up, it’s worth noting that Daughtery was only one of several contributors to the TMNT 2014 screenplay and, conversely, was the first person that Bay hired to rewrite TMNT‘s infamous “Blue Door” script – which Bay had inherited (not developed himself) when he acquired the franchise film rights. Originally, “The Blue Door” script included extremely controversial changes to the source material: Casey Jones was an eighteen-year-old hockey player, and the primary protagonist, in a troubled relationship with his girlfriend April O’Neil (an aspiring TV reporter); the Turtles, Splinter, and Shredder (who could grow blades from his skin) were all alien warriors from another dimension; and, instead of crushing on April, Michelangelo had feelings for a turtle lady (from his home dimension)."

"and will now be collaborating with Jon Berg (Edge of Tomorrow) and Oscar-winner Graham King (Argo and Hugo) on Tomb Raider – for, at the very least, a slightly more restrained approach to adaptation."

Something seemed off about that picture. Someone on Reddit fixed it by rotating her body. This is a much more natural look.

Give them some points for being original. I haven't seen the looking over shoulder poster before.

Oh wait...

"If you're watching this, I'm dead"

Villain killed her father.

Three strikes for generic action movie.

Speaking of Alicia, I believe she is an excellent drama actress and her Oscar proves that, but I am not buying her in this role. She doesn't seem to have an action star presence to her, for the same reason I wouldn't either, too small for the role. If she has to fight anyone hand to hand it is going to be a stretch. What was up with her jumping 15 feet at the end of the trailer?!

Yeah, she doesn't seem to have a huge action presense. I'll hold my judgement until I see her in action. She hasn't done anything like this. I wish they had used the actress who is the motion capture of the rebooted video game.
