‘Tomb Raider’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, Kristin Scott Thomas, Nick Frost, Hannah John-Kamen, Jaime Winstone | Written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Alastair Siddons | Directed by Roar Uthaug

Alicia Vikander stars as iconic archaeologist-slash-adventurer Lara Croft in this enjoyable reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, directed by Norwegian Roar Uthaug. Specifically based on the 2013 Crystal Dynamic game (and its sequel), the new film is remarkably faithful to its source material and the results are extremely impressive.

The Crystal Dynamic games are notable for making Lara a little more realistic and so it proves here. Accordingly, the film opens with a London-set prologue that serves to ground the character: Vikander’s Lara is introduced as a direction-less young woman, unable to deal with the disappearance of her adventurer father, Richard (Dominic West), seven years previously.

After receiving a video message from her father, Lara embarks on a dangerous journey to his last known location,

Nathan Fillion Made His Own ‘Uncharted’ Fan Film

Nathan Fillion Made His Own ‘Uncharted’ Fan Film
For years fans have been dream-casting “Firefly’s” Nathan Fillion as “Uncharted’s” Nathan Drake. Sadly the movie adaptation of the “Indiana Jones” meets “Tomb Raider” video game has been stuck in development purgatory for years. So Fillion went and made his own movie.

When the Naughty Dog video game dropped back in 2007, the physical similarities between Fillion and Drake were pretty apparent. Eventually “Spider-Man’s” Avi Arad, Chares Roven and Alex Gartner would begin to pursue a big screen translation penned by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. Shortly after the movie news made it into the public sphere, Fillion revealed his desires to play Drake on Twitter. This proclamation started a whisper campaign that echoed in the halls of Comic-Con for years. But it was all for naught, as it’s been over a decade, and there’s still no “Uncharted” film.

So Fillion and friends decided to

Dark Horse to Bring William Gibson’s Unfilmed Alien 3 Screenplay to Life in New Comic Book Series, Preview Pages Revealed

As Corpse Club listeners know, we're big fans of all things Alien here on Daily Dead, and like a lot of fans, we're fascinated by the production behind one of the more divisive entries in the franchise, Alien 3. In the ’80s, author William Gibson was approached to write a screenplay for the third film, and while his story never came to fruition on screen, Gibson's version will soon come to life on the paneled page in a five-issue comic book series from Johnnie Christmas and Dark Horse:

Mortal Kombat Reboot Is Not Happening Right Now

Mortal Kombat Reboot Is Not Happening Right Now
Sorry to report, but it sounds like the Mortal Kombat reboot is still a long way off. Development has been underway on a new movie based on the very popular video game franchise for some time now, with Aquaman and The Conjuring director James Wan coming on board as a producer nearly three years ago. Official developments on the project have been few and far between in that time. However, some recent news in the form of a casting breakdown for characters from the movie began circulating online, making it seem like the project is finally gaining steam. Unfortunately, producer Todd Garner dumped a sobering bucket of cold water on things.

Todd Garner took to Twitter in response to a fan who wanted some clarification on the recent news. A character breakdown revealed that the Mortal Kombat reboot would center on a brand new character and have Raiden as a 14-year-old boy.

Exclusive Interview – Daniel Wu talks Tomb Raider

Daniel Wu discusses the new Tomb Raider movie…

Did you have any experience with the Tomb Raider video game?

I played the video game in the late ‘90s, so I was very familiar with it and knew it was groundbreaking to have a strong female character in a role-playing game.

What was your reaction when you were first approached about being in Tomb Raider?

I was eager to read the script because I loved the idea of being part of a big franchise like Tomb Raider. I was pleased to discover that Lu Ren was going to be Lara’s partner on this journey and adventure. He’s an interesting, three-dimensional character with a lot of potential. So, I thought, I’m in! [Laughs]

Another draw was the chance to work in South Africa. I have a close relationship with that country because I was married there. I was married by a sangoma,

Samuel L. Jackson Will Be 25 Years Younger Through The Entirety of Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios has done some great work with de-aging actors for their movies! They did it with Robert Downey Jr., Kurt Russell, Michael Douglas, and Michelle Pfeiffer. Now they are going to do it with Samuel L. Jackson when he plays Nick Fury in Captain Marvel along with Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson. Some set photos previously surfaced teasing a younger Fury.

The difference between the latter two actors is that they will be younger, de-aged versions of themselves through the entire movie! Not just a few minutes of it. Marvel has been testing out the filmmaking technology to make this happen and it looks like they are confident that they are going to be able to pull it off.

During an interview with /Film, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Jackson and Gregg will be de-aged 25 years. He also talked about the technology behind it saying it’s “pretty amazing,

Brie Larson Concludes Filming on ‘Captain Marvel’

Brie Larson has finally concluded filming on ‘Captain Marvel’. Although the oscar winning actress has been teasing her role in Marvel’s first female-led movie for some time, it seems that Larson has finally completed her portion of filming after 75 days. To celebrate, Larson has taken to Instagram to showcase a signed slate from the production of the film. Check it out below:

A post shared by Brie (@brielarson) on Jul 8, 2018 at 1:35pm Pdt

Even though ‘Captain Marvel‘ began filming in late march, the true question here is if the actual production has any shooting left to do. I’m assuming so, since the schedule in the background is only referring to the days where Larson was shooting. Either way, this means that we’ll most likely be getting and official image of Larson as the titular character, with a trailer surely coming in the next few months as principal photography winds down.

This Ant-Man and the Wasp Actor Has Been in 3 Major Movies in 2018 Alone

This Ant-Man and the Wasp Actor Has Been in 3 Major Movies in 2018 Alone
In Ant-Man and the Wasp, Ghost, the gray-suit wearing, matter-altering antagonist of the new film, is bound to cause trouble. Hannah John-Kamen is the actor under the suit, and she's all over the sci-fi/fantasy genre - though you may not have recognized her name.

British actor John-Kamen got her start in 2011 as a voice actor in the now classic fantasy video game Dark Souls, as well as its sequel, Dark Souls II. She went on to make appearances on several British television series, including multiepisode arcs on shows such as Happy Valley, The Tunnel, and The Hour. Additionally, she's made appearances on two separate Black Mirror episodes, "Fifteen Million Merits" and again in "Playtest."

Since 2015, John-Kamen has starred on the space bounty-hunter television series Killjoys as one of the central characters. The series originally premiered in Canada but has been picked up to be coproduced by SyFy channel for

Honest Trailers Paired Up Tomb Raider with Pacific Rim: Uprising To Poke Fun at in Their Latest Video

Honest Trailers has released their latest episode that pairs Tomb Raider with Pacific Rim: Uprising, which they called "two movies so forgettable we combined them for one unforgettable Honest Trailer." Look, I know that these two films aren't perfect and they have their issues, but I still thought they were a ton of fun to watch and I wouldn't call them forgettable.

Regardless of how much I enjoyed the films, putting them through the ringer and all of the stuff that they poke fun at with them is very much deserved and, of course, the Screen Junkies do it in an amusing way that you'll enjoy.

3 Successful Franchise Revivals and 3 Failures

George Chrysostomou with three successful franchise revivals and three failures…

Franchise revivals are an ever present part of Hollywood today. Whilst audiences love sequels, prequels, original properties and reboots, there’s nothing quite as nostalgic as a franchise revival – taking a property from years ago, giving it a fresh coat of paint and selling it as a continuation or perhaps an improvement over what it once was. This list features sequels and reboots, but most of all puts the emphasis on the return of fan favourite franchises that may or may not have lost their way. First I would like to point out some honourable mentions. For a success it has to be the Jurassic Park series, which has continued to go from strength to strength in both movies and games, while Spider-Man is another that has been reinvigorated. As for failures, RoboCop is one such property, and another memorable

Jim Carrey Is Doctor Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Jim Carrey Is Doctor Robotnik in Sonic the Hedgehog Movie
Jim Carrey is in negotiations to portray Doctor Robotnik, aka Eggman, in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. It was announced at the end of May that James Marsden will star in the film, but it isn't clear which role he will have. Additionally, it's been reported that the production is trying to nail down Paul Rudd to play Sonic's police officer friend named Tom. The combination of Rudd, Marsden, and Carrey in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie could make for a box office success.

Sonic the Hedgehog is going to blend live-action and CGI and will be directed by Jeff Fowler. Deadline reports that Jim Carrey is close to signing on to the project to play the evil Doctor Robotnik. Carrey could make for an excellent over-the-top version of the Eggman and he'll pretty much have room to stretch out and do his thing with the part. While the idea

New Action Shots Place The Spotlight On Ant-Man And The Wasp’s Villain

Hannah John-Kamen is a star on the rise.

Buoyed by her performances across Tomb Raider and Ready Player One, the so-hot-right-now actress is poised for her first McU gig in the form of Ant-Man and the Wasp, in which she plays the villainous Ghost.

It’s a totally new take on the classic character, too, given Bob Layton’s creation was originally introduced to comic book readers as a male antagonist capable of giving Iron Man a run for his money in the tech department. This time around, though, Hannah John-Kamen is bringing her own twist to Ghost, who manages to escape from the Quantum Realm just as Ant-Man and the Wasp begins.

And while promoting the imminent Marvel sequel to IGN, executive producer Stephen Broussard described John-Kamen’s incarnation as “a new interpretation of Ghost, which was a classic character created by Bob Layton [and David Michelinie] which was primarily

Top 10 Most Anticipated Games from E3 2018

With E3 now over, there begins a long journey of excitement until these games hit shelves. Here are the ten that rose my anticipation levels the most, whether gameplay was shown or not.

10. Death Stranding (PS4)

It’s hard not to be interested in Death Stranding. From what I can piece together, you play a delivery man, trying to live an ordinary life, but with acid inspired circumstances keeping you from doing so. No real action was shown, but it seems to have you traversing wide open environments enduring the elements and injuries.

On a side note, the art style is heavily inspired by the Phantom Pain, and for some reason, I just love the way the textures are realised on everyday objects. Also, I love how this game’s being treated as some kind of movie with actors and using its cast to promote itself. I’m still fascinated with Death Stranding,
