Tomb Raider 2018 !LINK!
Based on the 2013 video game, and featuring Alicia Vikander as the latest incarnation of a character who's been around for 22 years, "Tomb Raider" surprisingly plays like a throwback to the classic late-'80s/early '90s era of action filmmaking, represented by the likes of "Cliffhanger," "The Last of the Mohicans," the first couple of Indiana Jones films, and Jackie Chan's "Armour of God" series. From the animated prologue, wherein the title character's archeologist father, Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West), tells of an ancient, cursed tomb supposedly containing the all-powerful, weaponizable remains of the Japanese shaman queen Himiko, through its gracefully executed chases and emotional moments, to its finale set on an island riddled with booby-trapped ruins, "Tomb Raider" is better and more original than anyone could have expected.

Paternal abandonment and its aftermath are at the heart of every character's story here. Lu Ren (Daniel Wu), the alcoholic sea captain who ferries Lara to the island that contains Himiko's tomb, is dealing with his own daddy issues: his same-named father once ran the boat, and ultimately vanished, too, which might account for why their relationship feels more brother-sister than romantic (they obviously respect each other, but there's no sexual chemistry because the movie isn't interested in finding any). The bad guy, archaeologist turned corporate mercenary Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins), is himself an absentee husband and father. He's spent seven years trying to locate Himiko's tomb at the behest of the mysterious Trinity organization, and resents the unseen master who's keeping him on the island until he finishes the job.
Lara visits the manor, where her father's tomb is, and uncovers a secret room. Richard has left Lara a message there to destroy the research on Himiko, before it falls into wrong hands. Lara, curious by nature, looks into the research, and decides to follow the leads found there. Having no money she bonds her necklace that her father gave her.
While resting, Lara is found by a Trinity mercenary, and she is forced to kill him. Lara sees a survivor, and chases him. It turns out to be her father, Richard. Richard mends her wounds, and lets her rest. Meanwhile Mathias has found the doorway to Himiko's tomb. Richard is disappointed in Lara for leading Mathias to the doorway. Lara however doesn't just give up, she takes one of Richard's bows and goes after Mathias.
In the Trinity's camp Lara frees Lu Ren, and some captives. A firefight breaks out between the Trinity and the escaped prisoners. Richard also comes to the camp and approaches the doorway. Mathias finds Richard and orders him to open the door, which Richard refuses. Just about when Mathias is about to shoot Richard, Lara arrives and promises to open the door to save her father. Lara opens the door and a group goes down into the cavern with her, Mathias and Richard among them. After overcoming several traps, they find Himiko's coffin, and open it. They learn that Himiko was carrying some sort of virus, what turns men into "beasts" when coming in contact with her in seconds. Realizing Trinity wants to make bio-weapon out of the virus, Mathias took a small sample of Himiko for he carefully cutting her finger not to get himself infected, Lara used the opportunity to escape Trinity again. In the fight Richard came in contact with one of the infected soldiers and was infected himself. Lara returns to her father, but he convinces her to leave him behind. Richard prepares an explosives to blow the tomb. Lara then goes after Mathias to stop the virus reaching the world. Lara and Mathias fight a lengthy battle, during which Richard blows up the tomb. Eventually Lara overcomes Mathias, and drops the sample container in his mouth and breaks it, infecting him. Lara then kicks Mathias over the ledge. As the temple crumples around her, she makes her escape. Lara makes it out of the temple and reunites with Lu Ren, just as Trinity's helicopter arrives. They force the pilots to take them back to mainland, along with the surviving prisoners.

Rumours concerning Tomb Raider Movie 3 - which has been the codename the community has used for all of the rumoured 3rd Tomb Raider Movies, including those featuring an origins storyline - have been around for as long as the mid 2000s, starting shortly after the second Angelina Jolie movie (The Cradle of Life) was released in 2003. All these projects mentioned in this section - which supposedly were planned before the announcement of the 2018 release - never left the planning stages. Thus all information in this section should be treated as rumours that were never officially confirmed (except where noted otherwise)! The list is in reverse order, starting with the latest rumour first:
In the morning, Lara goes to her father's company to claim her inheritance when she is presented with a puzzle box like one she used to play with as a child. Inside is a message and a key from Richard that directs her to go to the family's tomb. Lara opens her parents' tomb and finds a room full of her father's research. She finds a video camera with a message from Richard, detailing his search for Himiko's tomb and the history of her legend. He requested that Lara destroy all of his research because a company called Trinity is after his work and may threaten the world if they find Himiko's tomb.
Lara wakes up to meet a man named Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins). He has been leading an expedition for Trinity to find Himiko's tomb, but hasn't been able to return home to his family until he has concluded his search and brought back what they want. Vogel claims to have killed Richard and then forces Lara and Lu to work for him and his mercs to locate the tomb. They, along with a whole group of workers, are put under hard labor, and when one man falls behind due to exhaustion, Vogel shoots him dead.
Vogel sends one of his mercs to find Lara, just as they have found the tomb's location, but still need someone to unlock it for them. The merc finds Lara, but after a fight, she kills him and is mortified at what she's done. She then sees a mysterious figure in the woods and follows him to his hideout. To her surprise, it is Richard, very much alive. Although he believes Lara to be a hallucination at first, he knows it's her and they tearfully reunite. Richard patches up her wound and is upset to find out Lara didn't burn his research as he requested, and now Trinity is closer to Himiko. Despite his refusal to fight back, Lara takes a bow and some arrows to head back to the camp.
Lara uses the bow and arrows against Vogel's goons before reaching Vogel himself. She helps Lu Ren and the other workers get away, and Richard ends up going to the tomb as well. Before Lara can kill Vogel, he draws his gun on Richard, and although Richard tells Lara to go ahead and kill Vogel, she cannot bring herself to do so out of concern for Richard's safety. Lara is then forced to solve the puzzle on the tomb that allows it to open.
Vogel leads a team of his men, plus Lara and Richard, into the tomb. They come across a few booby traps that brings the party down, including another puzzle that Lara has to solve before they all fall to their deaths. They finally find Himiko's casket and open it, where her body lies and quickly decays. The men attempt to lift her corpse, but one of the mercs finds himself infected and quickly decomposing, even causing him to shoot some of them men in a frenzy before Vogel puts him out of his misery. The Crofts realize that Himiko wasn't using her powers for evil, but she had voluntarily chosen to be buried to prevent the sickness within her from spreading. Vogel cuts off Himiko's finger and places it in a bag so that he can bring it back. Richard is then attacked by one of Vogel's infected soldiers, and although he manages to kill him, Richard touched his face and is now dying of the infection. He decides he must destroy the tomb with bombs in order to prevent the sickness from spreading. He shares one last goodbye with Lara before she goes off to find Vogel. 041b061a72
