Now I am excited to say it is time for another Weekly Wrap-Up. This one is a bit delayed due to a Mother’s Day weekend getaway, but I am back and hard at the business of my fansite and the Tomb Raider community. Now on with the Wrap-Up!
There has been some positively lovely news about the next Tomb Raider movie. They have cast the new actress in the role of Lara Croft, and the choice is outstanding! It has my “Stamp of Approval” most certainly!
Last week, The Hollywood Reporter and various other outlets officially announced that Oscar and Academy Award-winner Alicia Vikander will play Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider movie.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT – TOMB RAIDER: THE TRILOGY (1998)
Produced in 1998 by Silver Films for the Tomb Raider III launch party, The Trilogy was never screened outside the event at the Natural History Museum in London that evening. Thanks to Producer Janey de Nordwall, who recently found the original digibeta tape, we’re able to share the short online in its original quality for the first time. de Nordwall went on to win a BAFTA for her production work and now runs the British Arrow Awards.
Tomb Raider: The Trilogy captured the spirit of the Tomb Raider phenomenon and impact of Lara Croft in the late 90s, wrapped up in a detective-noir setting. Click here to watch the video.
