If the Tomb Raider films starring Angelina Jolie just didn't satisfy your appetite as a fan of the Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics video game franchise, then a new fan film just might give you what you need. Trevor Addie directs and co-wrote Croft, a 20-minute short film based on female adventurer Lara Croft. Complete with a bow and arrow (which was added to the video game around the same time The Hunger Games made the weapon prominent again in mainstream action), Cassandra Ebner plays the title hero as she tries to save a young girl held hostage in the mountains by a group of mercenaries. It's pretty bad ass.
Here's Trevor Addie's live-action short film Croft, via ComingSoon:
Liam Carter, Devyn Dalton, Nickolas Baric, Shaw Madson and Brad Friesen also star in the film which won Best Action Short at the Atlanta Underground Film Fest. The film also received three nominations at the Action On Film Fest for Best Director, Best Short Action Film and Female Action Performer of the Year. Back in 2011, there were rumblings of a Tomb Raider reboot, but there's been no news since then, so this will have to hold fans over. For more information on the film, brought to our attention by ComingSoon, check out the short's Facebook page. Do you still want a new Tomb Raider?
