An Atomic Moo Film Book Review
Now, I can’t review the film, because I haven’t actually seen it yet. My current budget (or lack of) isn’t allowing for any film reviews (though a couple of free passes from Warner Bros could totally fix that… just say’n), but we did receive a very cool edition of Titan Books’s 2018 Tomb Raider: The Art and Making of the Film. I love film and art books, and they’re a great resource for graphic inspiration, reference material, and plain old geeking out. Also, Titan Books has produced many high quality film books in the past, and this one is no exception. Written/produced by Sharon Gosling (She did the Art and Making of Wonder Woman we reviewed awhile back), the Tomb Raider film book gives a pretty damn interesting insight into the concept art, behind the scenes photos, stunts, and cast quotes about the movie.
This film book starts with forwards from director Roar Uthaug (might actually be a viking), and producer Graham King, then continues with more than 170 beautiful pages of film making. Like always, my favorite parts are the concept art used for creating the film. However, if you are more into the film making process, prop making, or sets, then there are dozens of pages covering all of that.
I’ve posted a few sample images (just taken from my iPhone) below along with the film official trailer and the official synopsis, but if you enjoyed the film (I wouldn’t know… too poor for movie tickets, popcorn, and candy) then I highly recommend finding a copy at your local Barnes and Nobles (or book store of choice), or even getting your own copy at Titan Books online store. Tomb Raider stars Alicia Vikander and is in theaters now! …or so I hear.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider follows the treacherous journey of a young Lara Croft as she takes her first steps toward becoming a global hero. Academy Award™ winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) stars in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave). Showcasing lavish concept art, behind the scenes photos, insight into the stunts, and fascinating contributions from cast and crew, Tomb Raider, The Art and Making of the Film, is the perfect companion to this highly-anticipated release.
Seriously, WB! Don’t you want your movies reviewed by a website about a fire-breathing super cow!?! WTF WB?
