Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is back. After the pair of financially successful (if pretty dumb) films starring Angelina Jolie in the early 2000s, the most famous video game archaeologist (sorry Mr. Jones) returns to the big screen. Because origin stories are all the rage, the latest Tomb Raider (following in the footsteps of the character's more recent comic adventures) takes Lara back to the beginning to showcase how she became the world's best tomb raider.

Katsucon 2018 Cosplay Showcase 3

Legends of Tomorrow - Amazing Grace

When Rock 'n Roll is never born, the Legends head back to 1954 to Memphis to help a young Elvis Pressley (Luke Bilyk) get his big break, save the city from ghosts, and recover the the Death Totem. To save history, and grab the totem for themselves, the team has to walk a narrow line of leaving the magical guitar in the hands long enough for Elvis to hit it big but take it back before things go all to hell. The result is one of the show's goofier, but not necessarily funniest, episodes. The episode also ignores the cultural issue of Nate (Nick Zano) and Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) making goo-goo eyes at each other in the South in the 1950s. Still, there is fun to be had in Zari's (Tala Ashe) frustration with living with a speedster as the show continues to work Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) into the mix.
