Back in April, Collider reported that Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander had landed the coveted role of Lara Croft for the Tomb Raider reboot, with Roar Uthaug director of The Wave on board to direct. But the movie had yet to secure a release date. Now, thanks to a release from Warner Bros. and MGM we have an official date set for March 16, 2018. Tomb Raider will tell the story of a young and untested Lara Croft fighting to survive her first adventure – a similar plotline to the 2013 video game, which saw a young Lara stranded on an island. There’s still no word yet on what the plot of the movie will be or any other supporting characters in the film.

The first trailer for Andrew Neel‘s Goat has finally hit online. Based on Brad Land‘s bestselling memoir of the same name which was originally adapted by writer-director David Gordon Green, the film looks at the hyper-masculine world of fraternities and their shallow requisites for joining a fraternity house; all told through the eyes of Land, played by Ben Schnetzer, and his already sworn-in (actual) brother, played by Nick Jonas. The first trailer shows the allure of fraternity life and all the perks and parties that go with it, which then quickly devolves into a sadistic look at the behind closed doors world of hazing and “hell week” that can happen in fraternities nationwide. Goat also stars stars Gus Halper, Danny Flaherty, Jake Picking, Virginia Gardner and James Franco and will be released in theaters nationwide on September 23rd.
A new trailer has been released for the singing animal centric movie, Sing. The movie is set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, and stars Buster Moon (voiced by Matthew McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition. Directed by The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy director Garth Jennings, Sing also features the voices of Taron Edgerton, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Tori Kelly, Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly, Nick Offerman, and SNL’s Leslie Jones and Jay Pharoah. It is set to land in theaters on December 21.

You guys mentioned Blomkamp as a director who could benefit from directing someone else’s property. Can you think of other directors who would excel from directing a project they didn’t create/write – like a superhero property or adaptation of a book rather than creating their own?
What’s up collider crew!
I’m currently giving the hospital staff a dose of Collider as I get through kidney stones (don’t recommend). My question revolves around film in Los Angeles. As someone who recently moved to Burbank for the summer, I’ve found myself watching movies set in Los Angeles. What movies do you think best encapsulate the city of Los Angles. I re-watched Nightcrawler recently and had a newfound appreciation.
Thanks as always!
