I finally installed some games on my new Core i7-7700HQ / GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Lenovo Legion Y520 gaming laptop (L.A. Noire, Tomb Raider, and Rise of the Tomb Raider), so blogging may be light for a few days. With luck I’ll finish the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot game before the 2018 reboot movie, with Alicia Vikander stepping into Angelina Jolie’s shoes, comes out. GameSpot quotes director Roar Uthaug as saying he hopes to capture some of the feel of the game:
“I think making Lara Croft feel like a real human being, that’s definitely something we want to bring to the big screen as well. I think we’ll want to make people relate to Lara as a character. I’m hoping to bring some of my Norwegian sensibilities to the franchise.”
Swell. Get ready to see a melancholy Lara Croft sitting on a rock chewing on lefse and lutefisk.
