TOMB RAIDER 2 Storyboards Reveal A Planned Action Scene Paying Homage To 2001's LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER

The planned Tomb Raider sequel starring Alicia Vikander has fallen apart, but we do now have some storyboards depicting a planned action sequence that was going to take place at Croft Manor. Check it out!

We aren't getting MGM's planned Tomb Raider sequel, 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 with multiple studios looking to reboot the franchise, meaning Alicia Vikander's stint as Lara Croft has ended after just one movie.

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

Artist Jake Lunt Davies recently took to Twitter (via ActioNewz.com) 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 this may have been some sort of follow-up to that.

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 that franchise wasn't meant to serve as 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 worth keeping an eye on. It might be best to forego another 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).
