Tomb Raider Movie Reboot Wraps, Director Releases On-Set Video

The upcoming movie reboot of Tomb Raider has finished production. To mark the event, director Roar Uthaug posted a new behind-the-scenes video of him thanking the cast and crew after the final shot was taken. Check it out below:

The film stars Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, with Dominic West (The Wire) as Lara’s father, Walton Goggins (Sons of Anarchy) as movie’s villain, and Daniel Wu (Warcraft) as a ship captain who works with Croft on her adventure. The movie comes to theaters on March 16, 2018.

The first official images of Vikander in the movie were revealed in March–you can check them out here. These follow some earlier on-set pictures of the star in action.

An official synopsis for the film has also been released. It reads: “Seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes. Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.”

Last year, Uthaug lauded the 2013 reboot game and said the movie will try to do something similar. “I think making Lara Croft feel like a real human being, that’s definitely something we want to bring to the big screen as well,” he said. “I think we’ll want to make people relate to Lara as a character. I’m hoping to bring some of my Norwegian sensibilities to the franchise.”

This movie is not tied directly to the games, of which no new ones have been announced. A sequel to Rise of the Tomb Raider is likely, however, as the 2013 reboot has been described as part of a trilogy. A leak last year suggested the name of the third game is Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
