I am SOOOO happy holding back tears!!! Alicia Vikander makes such a perfect Lara, I'm hoping she uses those dual pistols this time. AHHHH!!!

I actually wouldn't count on that as the 2018 did get a lot of good praise from really respected institutions like The Guardian for ditching the guns and Vikander's Lara is so noble I can't see her using them. https://www.theguardian.com/film/201...love-with-guns

And this sequel seems to be Vikander driven calling the shots and a lot of interviews which you can find online like CNet praise her in interview about the lack of guns.

I think the best bet is just a good variety of non fire-arm weapons but she can't go full Katniss - I think the dual climbing axes is a good idea as no ones done it yet so Croft can make them iconic and they are so pragmatically useful, for climbing and combat, opening items etc.

I remember the movie being on the same page as the reboot and then taking a drastic turn back by dressing Vikander as Angelina Jolie and giving her duals, braid and a smirk.

I'm just glad they kept the actress. She was the bast part of the movie and I hope they're sticking to that "kind of Croft" direction that we see at the end (even tho I still think her look at the end is a little bit ridiculous, like a pale copy).

I seriously want a brand new story and not following another game story, dual pistols, mystical creatures, etc. I'm staying hopeful.

The first movie was the beginning of Trinity and Anna so I expect Trinity to be the big bad in this movie.

I definitely want Ana as the villain this time around, everything else can be original.

Yeah it's definitely possible, but with a new writer and possibly new director they may go another route altogether too. Who knows.

I just don't want them to follow any more game stories. Inspiration is good, but if they keep following the game stories they're not gonna sell as well considering the game stories are pretty bad. The movie retold TR2013/ ROTTR hybrid a thousand times better than the games did and we are very lucky to be getting a sequel because it barely made profit.

They need to go big or go home, time for Lara to start fighting dinosaurs and mummies again.

Not happening imo. Look at Himiko.....it's very clear they want to be as grounded as possible! I didn't expect a sequel so it's interesting to see how they're gonna have Lara with duals etc I wouldn't be surprised if she loses them at some point in the movie. A LOT of critics praised this bow version of Lara and Lara not killing anyone in the first movie.
