Angelina Jolie Takes Kids to New Tomb Raider Reboot

  Angelina Jolie Takes Kids to New Tomb Raider Reboot Hey kids, look what mom used to do! Angelina Jolie took a few of her kids to see the newTomb Raider reboot on Sunday — nearly 15 years after the actress took on the iconic role as Lara Croft. Jolie, 42, attended an afternoon screening in Los Angeles with Zaraha, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9. She was photographed entering the theater with her kids following close behind. The actress famously played the tough as nails video game heroine in the 2001 original and its 2003 sequel, The Cradle of Life. In the new Tomb Raider reboot, Alicia Vikander shoots an impressive bow and arrow to embody Lara Croft. Vikander previously opened up to PEOPLE about following in Jolie’s footsteps, saying she wanted to add something new and unique to the remake. “I think she’s an incredible actress and I also look up to her, being a filmmaker and a producer,” she said. “But I took on this role because I felt like there was really a drive with the people that were already on board on this project, but to make something new.” Vikander went through months of training in order to prepare herself for the role. “I couldn’t do a pull-up,” she said of her physical ability ahead of filming. “I wanted to have strength — that was one aspect of this project that really attracted me. I wanted to root for this young woman who goes through pain and struggles, but who’s able to kind of step by step earn her development, and pulling out the warrior within her.” Tomb Raider is in theaters now.

The next Tomb Raider game, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on September 14th, GameSpot reports. Additionally, the game's official website currently has a countdown scheduled for tomorrow, March 15th, 6:00am PT (9:00am ET).

The website's source code appears to be the source of the leaked release date, displaying "Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the climactic finale of Lara's origin story ... Available September 14th, 2018," GameSpot reports. At the time of writing, it looks like the release date has been removed from the site's HTML, though Polygon was able to get a screen grab of the HTML revealing the date (shown below).

'Tomb Raider': Fans Slam Criticism of Alicia Vikander's Body

  'Tomb Raider': Fans Slam Criticism of Alicia Vikander's Body "Their opinions do not matter and neither do they, because this movie is not for them. It’s for us," said one social media user, irate over sexist comments.Tomb Raider fans are having none of it.

The game's also listed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, which, as GameSpot points out, breaks from its predecessor's release schedule; Rise of the Tomb Raider originally launched on Xbox One as a timed exclusive.

Elsewhere in the site's source code, an April 27th "reveal date," is mentioned, possibly hinting at a gameplay trailer. The current countdown on the website may be hinting at simply the reveal of that date. Though we weren't able to confirm the release date ourselves, we did find the game's reveal date in the code (shown in the picture below).

It's worth pointing out Shadow of the Tomb Raider hasn't been formally revealed, and the only way we know the game's name comes from a leak on a train – though it's possible it's just a codename. That said, Square Enix has said its working on a new game in the series, though it's unclear whether or not developer Crystal Dynamics will return to the series. According to a report from Kotaku, Eidos Montreal, developer of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, will take the reigns on the next Tomb Raider game.
