Tomb Raider Takes Cues from Batman and Bond Reboots

MARSHALL HONOROF:

Crystal Dynamics looked to Hollywood for a way to make Lara's story relevant again.

Origin stories can be a real drag, especially when you already know the outcome. We've seen Peter Parker get bitten by a mutated spider more times than we can count, and the story of a young alien named Kal-El has achieved downright mythic status. Even a well-worn origin story can be interesting in the right hands, though. Just take a look at Batman Begins and Casino Royale; Crystal Dynamics sure did. In its upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, Crystal Dynamics took inspiration from James Bond and Batman to learn how retelling an iconic hero's origin story can make it ring true for a modern audience. (Culture, PC, PS3, Tomb Raider 2013, Xbox 360)

Batman Begins certainly isn't a bad place to take inspiration from at all.

The bond reboots suck. :(
