Last night, hot on the heels of Tomb Raider 2018 trailer debut, Warner Bros. has released a lengthy behind-the-scene for the upcoming Tomb Raider 2018 film.
Directed by Roar Uthaug, this adaptation of famous video game – Tomb Raider 2018 Film tells the origin story of Lara Croft with Oscar-winning The Danish Girl actress Alicia Vikander taking on the lead role as a 21-year-old bike courier in East London refusing to follow in her father’s entrepreneurial footsteps, Croft leaves behind her old life and goes on a search of her father’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island off the coast of Japan.
This featurette shows off a lot of behind-the-scenes footage, and it’s great to see Uthaug’s use of practical sets and stunts instead of shooting everything with green screen. Still, the real focus is on Vikander. The featurette has shown her effort of going through a rigorous physical transformation to morph into the incredibly strong and agile Lara Croft. Even her co-star Walton Goggins remarks that Vikander made him embarrassed to take his shirt off. That statement of Goggins gives how strong she got for the role. Now, everyone is excited to see Vikander leading this big action franchise.
Tomb Raider 2018 Film is a re-debut of Lara Croft franchise. Let’s take a glimpse at its official synopsis.
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer. Her father vanished when she was scarcely a teen. A little girl becomes a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose. Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Going explicitly against her father’s final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind and goes on her search of her father’s last-known destination that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. Her mission will not be an easy one. She must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.
Tomb Raider 2018 Film is scripted by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Besides Vikander, the movies also stars Dominic West, Walton Goggins and Daniel Wu. Tomb Raider 2018 Film is going to hit theaters on March 16, 2018.
