The Untitled Tomb Raider film is a reboot to the 2001 film.

PlotEdit

Tomb Raider explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Setting out to "make [her] mark", the ship Lara travels on, the Endurance commanded by Conrad Roth, is hit by a violent storm and split in two. She and many other survivors are stranded on an isolated tropical island in the Dragon's Triangle. She awakes inside a coastal cave, beside corpses. In the process of escaping, she is wounded, finds one of her fellow travellers dead in a ritualistic pose, and has to fight off a mysterious human figure who is killed as the cave collapses. After escaping, Lara has to find food and water to survive, fighting off the more dangerous animal inhabitants and trying to trace the other survivors. But a darker threat awaits as she is forced to harden herself against killing people in order to fight a group of malevolent mercenaries who seek to kill her and her companions. Darrell Gallagher, head of Crystal Dynamics, revealed to Variety that the film will focus on a younger Lara.[1]
