Announced the release date of the new Tomb Raider movie.
Warner Bros. and MGM will open Tomb Raider, the upcoming reboot of the videogame-to-movie starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, on March 16, 2018.
Tomb Raider, which Roar Uthaug (The Wave) is directing, will be released in 3D and Imax.
MGM and Warner Bros. are co-producing the film, after acquiring rights from GK Films, with MGM overseeing production. Graham King is serving as producer.
The original “Tomb Raider” game was published in 1996 by the London-based video game company Eidos and went on to become one of the most successful video games of the time. Eidos is now part of an international interactive entertainment group, Square Enix.
The Tomb Raider franchise has sold over 45 million copies worldwide. Paramount’s two films starring Angelina Jolie as British archaeologist Lara Croft were released in 2001 and 2003 and grossed $432 million worldwide.
Vikander won an Oscar for her performance in “The Danish Girl,” and also garnered attention for her performance in “Ex Machina.” Coming up, the actress has the next movie in the Jason Bourne franchise and “The Light Between Oceans” opposite Michael Fassbender.
