Looks OK, I guess. Looks kind of FAKE when she falls in the water.

This is the feminist icon Lara like the Tomb Raider reboot games.

Not the pin-up girl 90's porn star version with D cup boobs and the Angelia Jolie knock-off she was that 12-13 year old boys liked in the mid-90's. That version is no longer proper in today's modern society.

Now Lara Croft has been reimagined as a feminist beacon.

looks good, almost like it's right out of the reboot game. I do miss the dual pistols, it's campy but it was kinda her thing (besides the other obvious things), but bow and arrow is a nice replacement

I dunno, if they change the weapons and the cleavage, is it still Lara Croft? Or would that be like a non-chauvinistic version of Duke Nukem...?

Never played the games or read the comics, so I'm curious to know what people think on this one...

Have to at least have double pistols and a long braid at some point. That's her thing. Without that that's like Indy with no fedora hat or whip.

She can go without the braid, but yeah, double pistols for sure.

nuLara sucks compared to classic Lara, she isn't as iconic and her game which is regarded as PC ironically portrays a weaker Lara who can't get sh-t done. Obviously the know Classic Lara is too good to let go which is why she's still alive in various other forms, The Lara games, mobile games, etc.

This movie is going to bomb, though I do like the actress playing nuLara, that's still not Lara Croft. I don't think the movie can be worse than the Angelina Movies.

I've only played the Trilogy on PS3. Which consists of Anniversary, Legend and Underworld. I too prefer her original looks.

The Jolie movies were ok. They were at least game accurate.

I've never seen the second one but the first absolutely wasn't. In terms of story.

For the record, while I get their appeal... horrible games to play. Maneuvering Lara has all the joy of like, driving a semi-truck through enclosed spaces.

It's one of the reasons I never played the original Playstation games.

Some complain the newer ones were too easy (I guess because you get a checkpoint like every room you step in) but they're still fun imo. It's better because you don't have to redo a bunch of stuff when you die.

I liked playing the first reboot game on PS4, but I haven't bothered with the sequel yet. I still have my copies of Legend and Anniversary for PS2.

The TR comics from the '90s are currently out in oversized hardcovers and they're a real throwback to that era. The colors are overly Photoshopped, and the characters are impossibly proportioned. Adam Hughes drew several of the covers.

Isn't this actress the one who played that android in Ex Machina?

Really unneeded and unwarranted post. But okay...I'll bite. Why did you make this post when it wasn't brought up?

i was thinking the same thing.

not only is there something really weird with the neck, but the head is much too large for that body.

yeah! don't you just love photoshop!

It almost seems like they 'Shopped her head onto an athlete or something to make her look tougher.

Even though the reboot version's character design is leaner and lither than her busty older sister, she was never that buff.

Note: looks like they cut out the FAKE looking shot of her falling into the water. It's not there at all.

That poster is the very definition of overworked.

I really like the reboot games, but Lara is definitely a different character. She's too down to earth. OG Lara was a total one-percenter and a bit of a jerk, which I find more interesting than what they're doing now.

True. I just remember the training missions in the old games... where you have to shuffle around your giant mansion's equally giant training area, while your butler waits on you.

Looks like they gave her the double pistols and the braid. I don't know everything about this franchise, but the story looks like it may take elements from the classic and newer iterations.

I wonder if she'll end up shooting a deer for food like in the first level of the 2014 game.

Why does she have to "save the world"? Is that necessary to sell the movie? IN that case it really is like the other Tomb Raider films. Why can't it just be her tale of survival like in the game.

Movie looks ok, could go either way but still that isn't Lara Croft and that isn't Tomb Raider.

Not at all. She looks like a younger, slimmer somewhat less attractive version of Rhona Mitra, or like... Katie Holmes' sister or something.

This full trailer seems decent. Yeah, dumb that she needs to "save the world." That's not something you do in a Tomb Raider story.

1. I really hate the generic action movie trailer.

2. This movie looks very typical to me. Not interested.

3. I'm not the target audience, though... wonder what my wife or sisters will think?

4. GIVE IT UP FOR NICK FROST!!!

A little unfair as the original laura croft was more exaggerated in her feats as opposed to her reboot version.
