Shadow of the Tomb Raider Seemingly Releases This September

After 4 weekends atop the box office Black Panther may finally be dethroned by the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot

After 4 weekends atop the box office Black Panther may finally be dethroned by the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot

With the new "Tomb Raider" film hitting theaters this weekend, it is worth remembering just how significant a character Lara Croft has become to the culture. The young woman pushes herself beyond her limits, when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. A film based on the rebooted gaming series will release in the United States on March 16, starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft. She is flawless in the role of the budding heroine, who goes from inexperienced girl to novice archeologist and bow-and-arrow toting explorer. Following the events that made Croft who she is "today", the journey is far from over and the next phase of her incredible journey is set to be officially revealed tomorrow! Additionally, when Lara sees a person die for the first time or is forced to take a life for the first time, you can see how it weighs on her, and you really get the benefit of having a talented actress like Vikander in the role.

The recent Los Angeles premiere of Tomb Raider was one such time when Alicia appeared for a rare outing looking like nothing short of a smoke show.

If only she had those qualities for the whole movie. And that female empowerment is clearly the aim here - Lara Croft was one of the first woman action heroes in video games (until she was sexualized in later iterations). Assassin's Creed focused on the least interesting aspects of the franchise's story, Warcraft suffered from studio interference, and every Resident Evil entry has bastardized its source material.

The story of "Tomb Raider" is actually decent. With her strikingly chic makeup look, Alicia chose a side part with shiny waves on one side and on the other, rolled sections that resemble a subdued version of cornrows.

We've reached out to Square Enix for confirmation of these details, although prominent placement in otherwise generic, Latin-laden source code seems pretty concrete.
