Tomb Raider Producer Reveals Why Angelina Jolie Cameo Didn’t Happen

Tomb Raider producer Graham King has revealed why the production team felt an Angelina Jolie cameo appearance wouldn't work in the new Tomb Raider movie reboot.

In an interview with CinemaBlend, King explained the film doesn't have a story moment that justifies having Jolie suddenly show up and interact with the new Lara Croft, Alicia Vikander.

"It was never a story that had that moment where you could, you know what I mean?" King said. "Pass the baton over."

Jolie portrayed Lara Croft in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003's Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life. Warner Bros. still wanted to find a way to include Jolie, according to King, but he and the rest of the team ultimately decided against it for fear of ruining the reboot's different tone.

Westworld Season 2: The Biggest Clues Hidden in the New Photos

Plot details for Westworld Season 2 have been kept tightly under wraps since the show ended its freshman season in December 2016, but between the intriguing Super Bowl trailer and these newly-released photos, we're starting to get a vague sense of what we can expect when the show returns on April 22.

First, check out the 11 new images below.

Some of these photos confirm what we already suspected, assumed or gleaned from the trailers, like Dolores and Teddy joining forces to get revenge on the guests, and gunslingers like the Man in Black and Hector still looking badass and ominous.
