With another Tomb Raider movie on the way (or so it is planned), let’s take a look at the titles that have hit the big screen!
There are two series of movies where Lara Croft comes to life. The first one is portrayed by Angelina Jolie, and the other, after the reboot of the video game franchise in 2013, is portrayed by Alicia Vikander.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)
Lara Croft, the world’s most famous video-game heroine, bursts onto the big screen in “…the most stylish and entertaining action-adventure movie in years!”
Exploring lost empires, finding priceless treasures, punishing villains in mortal combat… it’s all in a day’s work for adventurer Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie). But a secret from her father’s (Jon Voight) past is about to lead Lara to her greatest challenge: The Triangle of Light, a legendary artifact with the power to alter space and time. Lara must find the Triangle before it falls into the clutches of the Illuminati, a secret society bent on world domination. To stop the Illuminati, Lara will have to survive a cross-continental chase filled with unimaginable danger. But for the Tomb Raider, danger is the name of the game.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life (2003)
Oscar winner Angelina Jolie “is even sexier than in the first Tomb Raider.” bra Croft (Jolie) is back in action and faces her most perilous mission: to recover what ancient civilization believed to be the essence of all evil, Pandora’s Box. She must travel the globe, from Greece to Hong Kong to Kenya and beyond to get to the box before it’s found by a maniacal scientist (Ciaran Hinds) whose plan is to use it for mass annihilation.
For this adventure, Lara recruits her ex-partner Terry Sheridan (Gerard Butler) —a dangerous mercenary who has previously betrayed Lara and their country. She knows he’s the best for the mission, but can she trust him again?
Join her as she races through furious hand-to-hand battles, blazing shoot-outs and breathtaking sky-diving escapes to try to save the ancient artifact… and mankind’s future.
Tomb Raider (2018)
Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander), the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, is driven to solve the punk of her father’s mysterious death on her own. Armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit, Lam must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she braves the perilous journey into unknown lands, and ultimately earns the name tomb raider.
