Warner Bros. has released a second trailer for the remake of famous TOMB RAIDER which will bring Lara Croft back to the cinemas this March this time played by Alicia Vikander! She is joined in the cast by Daniel Wu and Dominic West as her father with Kristin Scott Thomas also joining them.
Tomb Raider arrives into cinemas this March
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. She must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. As you can see yourself below, the new trailer is as lifeless as Alicia’s acting!

‘Variety’ reports that Ridley Scott is in talks to direct Disney‘s THE MERLIN SAGA which is eyed as a possible franchise based on 12 books from T.A. Barron which he started publishing back in 1996! He would also produce it with Lord of the Rings‘ and Hobbit‘s Philippa Boyens writing the script! Similar to the popular BBC series from a decade ago, THE MERLIN SAGA depicts the origin story of a young wizard Merlin who would go on to become the mentor of the classic literary character of King Arthur. It is even more interesting that Disney is preparing another movie from this universe – a live-action version of SWORD IN THE STONE which Ridley could also produce.
FANTASTIC BEASTS 2: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD featuring lead star Eddie Redmayne and also Jude Law. The movie which is out next November continues the story after the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world. Hopefully this one ain’t as ghastly bad and boring as the first one!
Jude Law plays younger version of professor Dumbledore!
The Fantastic Beasts has been imagined as the five movie series
Poppy Corby Truech is Vinda Rosier, Grindenwald’s trusted follower

A rather strange looking science fiction movie with Iwan Rheon (and under strange I don’t mean just his looks in the film) titled ALIEN INVASION: SUM 1 out this December in USA and Germany!
An aggressive race of aliens took over Planet Earth and humanity’s at its end, living in giant bunkers below ground. Young Military rookie S.U.M.1 (Iwan Rheon) is sent to the surface to save a group of unprotected survivors. He seems to be almost the only cast member in this movie. His Inhumans series isn’t scoring a huge success over at ABC currently in its first season.
