Default The General Tomb Raider Movie discussion thread

I thought I should open this thread to discuss the movie franchise as a whole not just focusing on the upcoming reboot or actress to fill Lara's boots but also to take time to discuss the original series of films too.

LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER (2001)

Made by Paramount. The film starred Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft and focused on her quest for an object known as the Triangle of Light and unlock the mystery surrounding her fathers death.

LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER: THE CRADLE OF LIFE (2003)

The second installment in the Paramount franchise of Tomb Raider films also starring Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft. The story centred around an artefact called Pandora's Box and an ornate orb. The film seen Lara globe trot to exotic locations to find it.

TOMB RAIDER (2013)

Made by GK Films. This film is a reboot of the franchise and will be based on the upcoming game of the same name. The screenplay has been written by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby. As of yet there has been little news surrounding the project and who has been chosen to play the leading lady. Little is known about the story other than it will be set on a stranded island and provides an origin story for Lara. It will include characters from the game such as Sam and Roth but is said to follow the quest of Lara in search of her parents. Presumably this alludes to the games back story in which Lara's parents are missing. This won't be incorporated into the game but will more and likely be explained through the film.
