2018 has a lot of potential films out there that may hit or miss, much like 2017.  On paper, you just can’t be sure until you start to see the trailers.  For 2018, the trailers that have been released so far are nearly all for films January to February or big blockbuster franchises.  So, there may be releases coming in the first half of the year that will blow us away that we just haven’t seen any footage for yet.  Solo: A Star Wars Story has had to sit on the bench until The Last Jedi fades at the box office, but I think we’ll see our first look at that fairly soon, since Disney has five months to hype a Star Wars film people are on the fence or completely oblivious about.  Of the 2018 trailers released thus far, here are my ten favorite (Disney has the top 3, so it looks like another huge year for the biggest studio on Earth).

Tomb Raider Trailer #1 (2018) *Her Legend Begins*

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.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex MachinaThe Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner.

Opening in theaters on March 16, 2018, Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West (Money Monster300), Walton Goggins (The Hateful EightDjango Unchained) and Daniel Wu (AMC’s Into the Badlands).

First published in 1996 by the London-based video game company Eidos, Tomb Raider became one of the most successful video games of the time. A reboot of the series, telling the origin of Lara Croft, was released in 2013 and sold over 5 million copies. The most recent game, titled Rise of the Tomb Raider, was released in 2015 and is available now for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Rise of the Tomb Raider (Xbox, Playstation – 2015) PLUS NEW TRAILER

I can count on one hand the number of games I’ve played all the way through twice just because they were that much fun.  Crystal Dynamic’s reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise’s only flaw was a horned-in multi-player component that had no place being in the game.  Not every game needs multi-player, something I’m glad to see fixed this time.  Lara went through a lot in the first game and there’s a lot of really cool character development going on with her as in this game we get back to basics: the tombs.  I’ll be there when Rise of the Tomb Raider releases in November 2015.  For all your achievement needs, check out the list below courtesy of xboxachievements.com.
