Such a good poster. Really wish this was the main one.

Man, that poster just makes me mad that we didn't get to see her use her axe more in the movie. It'd have been cool if she had brought it with her on the island in the first place.

I liked how they handled weapons, they have been very realistic.
The bow is used just for five minutes but it was given a bit of backstory, which was cool.
They did great with the axes (I mean, why would have she brought climbing axes on her trip to a japanese island?), it's true that they were roughly used, but that moment (final fight and escaping the tomb) created a great climax; definetetly an highlight from the movie.


About Angelina.... I know it's almost impossible but a cameo would be amazing.
But I don't think she should play Lara's mother or any other character; if the sequel had a plot inspired by Shadow and Lara finds an artifact capable of "reshaping the world" and which temts her with visions of the past/future; it would be awesome if Angelina played an older Lara in something like a 20 seconds vision.
(Just to make an example; it would be something similar to Rebecca Romijn's cameo in X-Men: First Class where she appeared for five seconds playing and older version of Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique. If she had played another character, even Mystique's mother, te cameo wouldn't have been so great).

That's also a very good idea for an Angelina cameo

I have watched the movie again and there's a lot of moments when Alicia's acting is stellar at some moment she converge a lot with her facial expression like when she finish to listen the tape on the boat she looks like she said "I'm tired of hearing his nonsence" or when she grabs her fathers arm in the cave after her climbing. There's a lot her caracter express without actually speaking.

Also I agree with the more realistic approch to the weapons, in real life you can't carry a bow like Lara does in the game or having infinite arrows.

Same with the machine gun in the tomb Lara want's to grab her when it's on the floor (there an insert Lara's face/weapon). In the game it's a piece of cake to have a weapon even when there's a fire shooting around you (like in Rise of the Tomb Raider when you take the machine gun) but here it's not even possible.

The pickaxe, no magical crafting it's a soldier weapon use to open the tomb.

Every weapons she have on the movie it's her decision to have it she take the bow,she take the pickaxe, she buy the duals. On the game the ultimate bow is given by Jonah,the ultimate pickaxe by Roth even the duals are not necessary her weapons but the one from Roth.

One image they've never released is the one of Alicia with the bow that was in the Barbie's box; I would have liked to see a complete version of it (on the box it was cut).

I don't think that AJ would ever agree to appear as a cameo; both actresses are not close in looks and AJ is very careful with the roles she is taking; not to mention that she is slowly pulling herself ut of the acting scene, so I don't think she is even interested anymore. She is more into things related to family and her kids these days, and her own directing career.
