If you grew up with the original Playstation in your home, there’s a very good chance you’re familiar with the Tomb Raider games. With addictive gameplay and a fascinating story, the four original Tomb Raider games will go down as 90s classics.
The 2000s, however, saw a decrease in overall quality for the Tomb Raider franchise, but also saw the release of two Tomb Raider films. The games failed to reach the heights of their predecessors, while the star power of Angelina Jolie couldn’t prevent the Tomb Raider movies from being critically panned.
When game publishers Eidos were bought by Square Enix in 2009, however, it ushered in a new era for fans of Lara Croft, with the 2013 reboot being the highest rated Tomb Raider game in over a decade. The game’s success prompted a reboot of the film franchise as well, with Norwegian director Roar Uthaug set to take the reins. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander has been cast as our new Lara Croft, and the first images of her as the Tomb Raider have been released, and they look super cool.
