News About "Tomb Raider"
Tomb Raider is bases on a video game: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. It was created in 1996, making it about the same as the protagonist in the 2018 movie adaptation. Lara Croft's character has had several different backstories over the course of her career, but she remains a strong willed, smart and athletic 21-year-old woman. (Ah, the magic of digital plastic surgery.)
Lara Croft has been marketed in various other forms, including merchandise, comic books, TV show and movies. Angelina Jolie played the part in the theatrical franchise Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life (2003).
From the Studio:
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father's global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he's truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can't understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad's last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one...
