Lara Croft is the fictional main character in the Tomb Raider video game series, and in the Tomb Raider movie series that was created as a result of the video game success. Lara is an English archeologist, who is in constant search of ancient relics. Angelina Jolie personifies Lara in the movies, as a result of her resemblance to the video game character.

What is Tomb Raider?

Beyond video games and movies, Tomb Raider is a complete media franchise that includes: comic books, novels, and even amusement park rides.

There are two movies in the Tomb Raider franchise, and no word on if and when others may be along. The movies are: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. The first movie is among the highest grossing movie for a video game series.

2013 Series Reboot

Though we haven’t heard from the franchise in a while, it looks like there is a reboot in the works for both Lara Croft herself (as a spin off separate of Tomb Raider) and additional Tomb Raider video games in the works. Depending on the success of the series, we could possibly see additional movies.
