TOMB RAIDER 2: Storyboards From Scrapped Sequel Reveals Throwback To 2001's LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER

The Tomb Raider franchise is being rebooted after MGM lost the rights, but storyboards from the scrapped sequel starring Alicia Vikander offer a better idea of what fans might have seen in the movie...

The Tomb Raider sequel isn't going to happen, and that's down to MGM failing to get cameras rolling before losing the rights to the franchise. The last we heard, a bidding war had ensued to reboot the franchise, meaning Alicia Vikander's time as Lara Croft has ended after just one movie.

Angelina Jolie at least lasted two, and a sneak peek at an action sequence planned for the sequel actually harkens back to her 2001 debut as the iconic video game character. 

Artist Jake Lunt Davies recently took to Twitter to share storyboards depicting operatives infiltrating Croft Manor during a stormy evening. A similar sequence played out in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, so we're assuming this was either a strange coincidence or a deliberate throwback to the character's first live-action appearance. 

At the end of 2018's Tomb Raider, we learned that a clandestine organisation called Trinity was targeting the adventurer, so we're assuming that's who this lot was working for. 

Also in that reboot's closing moments, Lara purchased her iconic duel pistols and also had her hair braided in the same way as Jolie's iteration of the character. While not a prequel to those previous movies, we do wonder if the plan was to link the franchises together somehow seeing as the 2018 effort was very much an origin story. 

Regardless, we're now getting a new take on the character which promises to be very interesting. It might be best to forego the origin story at this point, picking up with a Lara who is already a full-fledged explorer (which would obviously be more in line with the original video games).

Take a closer look at these storyboards for Tomb Raider 2 below:
