Shadow of the Tomb Raider To Be Revealed Tomorrow And Launch Date

   DAGGERS AT DAWN Off-the-shoulder mini-dress £18

I haven't played video games much, for the last 15 years, but I had read about it online and I did my research.

The source code on the website does not mention the release of a Switch game.

So, 16 years later: Does it hold up? With his involvement in Tomb Raider, Goggins was fulfilling a childhood fantasy spurred by a love of treasure hunting films, namely John Huston's 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

The biggest drag on "Tomb Raider" is its writing, with screenplay credits going to Geneva Robertson-Dworet (planned "Suicide Squad" sequel "Gotham City Sirens") and Alastair Siddons ("Trespass Against Us") and story credits going to Evan Daugherty ("Snow White and the Huntsman") and Robertson-Dworet. Let's give her all the hurdles possible.

Of course, Lara eventually gets dragged into the field, solving puzzles and dual-wielding pistols and yes, raiding tombs.

Tomb Raider premieres this Friday at Century Cinemax, Acacia mall, and Cinema Magic, Metroplex mall. It's a concept called ludonarrative dissonance: a disconnect between a game's narrative and it's gameplay, which makes emotionally-gripping moments hard to pull off in a game that has you spend dozens of hours in deadly shootouts. The moment Lara turns the corner from "stubborn orphan" to "determined adventurer", she is all but thrown into a meat grinder - from almost drowning during a headache inducing, strobe-lit storm as she travels to the island, to being forced to strangle a man to death as they wrestle in the mud, Tomb Raider seems to exalt in spotlighting the brutality of Lara's exceedingly bleak circumstances. The Triangle of Light allows its wielder to mess with the flow of time. Thanks to one key difference, Vikander's Lara becomes much more relatable than her video game counterpart, even for what is at base an action-adventure romp.

Here's something weird you might have forgotten: Daniel Craig is in this movie! Sorry Switch fans, this version of Lara Croft doesn't appear to be coming to you.

"I too had to overcome, like Lara, a lot of questioning", Vikander said. Now in danger, Lara must survive Trinity, uncover the mysterious tomb on the island, and figure out what happened to her father. "I don't think that anybody in life does", he muses.

Tomb Raider's attempts to create a thematic motif about fatherhood also comes up short, as its various characters' daddy issues (Lara's included) are never fleshed out or explored with any real depth.

In terms of craftsmanship, Tomb Raider mostly succeeds in giving the franchise a grittier makeover. Her father, Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West), went missing seven years ago and young Lara, unable to accept his death, has refused to inherit her family money and instead works as a bike messenger in London.

"C'mon, I'm not so flat-chested to begin with. That's been done." And then, they told me that it was referring to the 2013 reboot of the game. She is punched in the face, and in the stomach, she is thrown against rocks and sent careening through a forest, she is impaled, hit by a vehicle, left in an impossible one-handed dead hang at least four times, and she is choked, really choked, by both men and women alike.

VIKANDER: Yes, I have seen her in that role. And in the game, she's a double D, so we took her down some. But no, I am not flat chested anyway.

Alicia Vikander plays Lara Croft, a resourceful young woman who receives a video message from her missing-presumed-dead archaeologist father Richard (Dominic West), and sets out on a unsafe journey to his last known location.

"Tomb Raider", a Warner Bros. release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for "sequences of violence and action, and for some language". We will just have to wait for the event tomorrow to know for certain. Before the decade was over, Angelina Jolie would even get another crack at making a solid action movie with Salt. It doesn't help that the computer-generated action is so obvious that it's as if the movie were paying homage to its video-game source. This leaves specific game information, such as where Shadow of the Tomb Raider will take place, still a mystery.

A splash page went live this morning teasing something Tomb Raider related being revealed tomorrow morning. With Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander assuming the role of Tomb Raider protagonist Lara Croft and Roar Uthaug - director of the acclaimed Norwegian natural disaster thriller The Wave - calling the shots, the Tomb Raider reboot makes for a fun but hollow cinematic relaunch of the franchise.

Until now, of course. This incarnation, played by Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander, wears a hoodie and cargo trousers, spending her days biking around London delivering food - when she's not brawling at the kickboxing gym.
