Tomb Raider: Anniversary was one of Angelina Jolie’s first big roles and the action-packed film thrust her into near-blandry land and branded her as a powerful lady capable of tackling tough dude films. The movie turned out to be a box office smash and Jolie, who played her first non-topscore role, enjoyed an eight-year career that would end with four more films. Let’s take a look at those.
Tomb Raider: Anniversary is the first installment of the horror filmials of Tomb Raider. Angelina Jolie is back as Tomb Raider in a new chapter. This time, the heroine is the daughter of a wealthy family who lives in Los Angeles. She assumes the role as protector after her best friend is murdered and searches for her personal guru who can help her find her father.
Tomb Raider Anniversary continues the story of the original video game. It picks up just after the events in the second game and allows us to revisit our ‘protector’ duties. The story revolves around the evil plans of a group of scientists who are trying to make a video game out of cloning. Angelina is now required to play the role as the hero of humanity, rather than being a normal gamer. If you like Tomb Raider then you’ll love Anniversary, as it includes some of the cut scenes from the first game.
Tomb Raider: After Rise 3 is the third installment of the Tomb Raider saga. Angelina Jolie plays the role of the heroine. We see her save the world with the help of a strange video game (not this one though). While the story is similar to the original, this game adds some interesting twists. Tomb raider: After Rise not only has Angelina Jolie in the lead role, but she also co-stars Dylan O’Brien, Ki Hong Lee and Dexter Darden.
Although it’s not necessary to know everything about the first Tomb Raider video game before you watch the sequel, those who have played the original game know how complex and difficult the game was. Tomb Raider 2: After Rise is a sequel that retains the appeal of the original, but still makes it enjoyable for modern fans. Because the film continues the familiar science fiction tale that has been told so many times, it’s easy to understand why. It’s not difficult to see why science fiction movies would be so popular if you grew up reading it.
This is evident in Tomb Raider, which started out as something everyone was talking about. The story of a group of researchers who were looking for mythical metal “The orb” was the basis of the first movie. The team needed the orb to activate an energy portal to take them to safety. Unfortunately, they didn’t find it in time. The team was left stranded on an unknown planet, without any means of travel, due to this failure. Because of their limited means, they had to rely on others for survival until help could arrive.
The film’s main storyline revolved around a science-fiction adventure. Angelina Jolie, however, didn’t let this stop her from casting her role. Angelina Jolie appeared to be fully prepared for her role as the first Tomb Raider video game, despite having played small parts in science fiction movies in the past. It may have just been a small role, but to someone who was unaware of the role ahead of time, it seemed like she was a perfect fit. It also made perfect sense that Angelina Jolie was perfect for the part of Lara Croft, given her own background and relationship with the Tomb raider franchise prior to this film.
It did not help Tomb Raider’s story and is likely why Angelina Jolie was chosen to play the leading role. The film was good for her as she was able channel her frustrations and anger into one of her best acting performances. Although the movie failed at the box office, it did rake in an incredible amount of revenue thanks to excellent marketing and ticket sales. Angelina Jolie gives another outstanding performance as the annoying, foul-tempered tomb raider.
