Even though blocky and low-resolution initially, Lara Croft became a sex symbol, and after several successful games, Eidos Interactive partnered with Paramount Pictures for the 2001 blockbuster Lara Croft: Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie.
On April 27th, the creative team behind the latest Tomb Raider installment will discuss the evolution of Lara Croft as well as the techniques and tools needed to create the series and the inspiration that guides it. The high-quality teaser trailer landed alongside the announcement too, and it seems that the game will be based on Aztec themes. It was followed in short order by a sequel titled Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life in 2003.
ALICIA Vikander knew she had big shoes to fill when she accepted the role of Lara Croft. Was her dad just a businessman or was something more?
It all gets fairly serious pretty quickly, however.
The final image is of Lara staring across a vast landscape at what appears to be a looming Mayan temple of sorts.
When she is arrested after a bike racing accident involving a police vehicle, Richard's business partner Ana Miller posts her bail and warns her that if she does not claim her inheritance very soon, her father's estate will be sold off. Lara reluctantly accepts and just before signing comes into possession of the key to her father's secret hidden office.

Mind you, Flourgon's song never charted in the US , and it came out 4 years before Miley was born, but anyway. here's his claim. The single " We Can't Stop " is certified platinum and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2013.
The Tomb Raider franchise began in 1996 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be its 12th entry in total; 2013's reboot focused in on Lara's untold origin story and recast the heroine as a somewhat more realistic character. Director Roar Uthaaug does a decent job with these action set-pieces, and they're crucially not so slavishly devoted to the source material that they lack their own cinematic flair. The most important part of an action film is the action!
"She was there in just her tank top and she was soaked in water and it got really cold and she turned nearly blue", he says. Daniel Wu puts in a decent turn as Lara's buddy Lu Ren, but he doesn't have much to do.
You can check out the game's reveal trailer below. As such, Goggins feels wasted. Instead, I left... well, a bit bored really. Because the story and drama had the right kind of elements that appealed to her, especially the young girl in London growing up without her father and trying to find him.
And in "Tomb Raider", the challenges are nonstop.
Another pointed out: "Even if the Tomb Raider reboot had a girl with huge boobs she would still be criticized for her body, you can't win".
"Tomb Raider" is now in cinemas. It's a challenge I'm sure the upcoming Uncharted, Mass Effect and Metal Gear Solid films will also battle with.
Tomb Raider is pretty serviceable, in fact - it's just not much more than that, and will probably be easily forgotten.
