[vc_row][vc_column][az_blank_divider height_value=”40″][az_column_text]According to an article by Splash Report, several plot details from the upcoming Tomb Raider Movie have surfaced and they suggest drastic deviation from the canon of the 2013 game reboot plot.
“Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) is a bike messenger in London. She’s living the college life partying it up with her roommate Sophie. Her father Richard (Dominic West) disappeared seven years ago somewhere in Hong Kong. His body has never been found. An executive from the Croft Holdings tries to convince Lara to take over the company. After receiving a key, she goes back to her childhood home and discovers a secret room.
Her father was obsessed with finding the mysterious tomb of Queen Himiko a.k.a. The Deathmaker. She finds a map leading to an island in the South China Sea. Once in Hong Kong, she enlists the help of Boat Captain Lu Ren (Daniel Wu) to get her to the dangerous destination. The TRINITY organization sends Vogel (Walton Goggins) and a team of mercenaries to get to the mysterious island first. Once there, both groups face off in a race to uncover the mystery.
This Tomb Raider reboot is definitely on the smaller scale. There are no 4 or 5 exotic locations where our protagonist finds clues to reveal where the mysterious tomb is located. There’s three places in the story: London, Hong Kong and the mysterious island. It’s a pretty straight-forward adventure. Most of the film takes place in the Isle and around discovering the tomb of Himiko. The first act is pretty good, and this rebooted version of Lara Croft is well setup. She’s fun and adventurous. You want her to succeed. The second act is a monumental disaster.
There’s a big emotional twist that’s not a huge surprise but the way it’s handled is a severe misfire. The story seems to be dragging his feet on the island for a very long time. There’s a lot of running around the island from the bad guys and trying to escape repetitively. Of course, the film is build to start a new franchise. Based on this subpar adventure, I hardly believe it will be the case.”
There’s no official word on whether this information is true, or how much of it is real, if any at all. So for now, this remains an unconfirmed rumor. To read the original article, click here.[/az_column_text][az_blank_divider height_value=”40″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
