Get a first look at the new Tomb Raider

February 7th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Production has started on the highly-anticipated Tomb Raider reboot, and at last we have some first images from the film.

Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft, first seen as a pixelated archeologist in the gaming universe then brought to life by Angeline Jolie on the big screen.

While very little is known about the story, it has been confirmed that this reboot is based on the Square Enix video game reboot that hit the shelves in 2013, with the story reportedly following a young Lara, as she searches for her father, played by Dominic West

It will supposedly see a young Lara trying to “finish her father’s research and uncover ancient secrets in order to clear his disgraced name”.

Roar Uthaug will direct with a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
