'Tomb Raider' Trilogy Remastered For PC; Are Console Versions Coming As Well?

When video game character Lara Croft first debuted in "Tomb Raider" on the big screen almost two decades ago, she was a daring, action-superwoman embodying a role reserved for men.

"Shadow of the Tomb Raider" will launch in September. "We didn't want to make them as big as in the game, but at the same time we didn't want to take away from her the things that are, you know, her trademarks".

Check out our list of the best games on PC. Like the game, the movie develops her skills and stamina more than her personality, leaving Croft to be a kind of blank slate so viewers can attach their own identity.

Will you be seeing Tomb Raider? To think that this movie may actually be the start of a cinematic universe based on video game characters.

Some decent action sequences are all that save it from being a dud.

It is Lara's character, however, that elevates the film and makes Tomb Raider stand out among other game-to-film adaptations. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name Tomb Raider.

The official Tomb Raider site has changed to a teaser image but the clues are already on the page.

Last December, publisher Square Enix put out a tweet stating that "it won't be very long between the official reveal and when you can play".

In the origin story, Croft is a London bike messenger who trains in MMA - and refuses to acknowledge the death of her missing explorer father (Dominic West), which prevents the heiress from claiming his vast fortune.

Here, the wonderful Alicia Vikander takes on the Lara Croft mantle, and - typically - gives everything to the role. We're hoping that leads to many more events where we'll get to spot the star more often. Some were left feeling majorly bummed out with Rise of the Tomb Raider's story, and fan favorite Sam's absence most certainly didn't help with that matter.

"What I love is that we brought the humanity and the vulnerability with her", Vikander says.
