Walton Goggins is really excited to be in Tomb Raider. Alien: Covenant teases a bloody scene. Get a new look at Logan’s Caliban. Plus, a teeny bit of new footage from the Power Rangers movie, Ichabod’s on trial in Sleepy Hollow, and what to expect from the final season of Grimm. Happy Spoilmas Eve-Eve!
Walton Goggins is full of praise for the film’s script:
This director is an extraordinarily talented filmmaker, and Alicia Vikander I’ve met a few times, we have some friends in common, but I just think she’s one of the greatest contributions to any generation of actors, man. That for me was just a wonderful opportunity. But more importantly, the story is so good. It’s so good! I think I can say this: For me, it’s like Raiders of the Lost Ark meets a genre version of the Joseph Conrad novel Victory: An Island Tale. I just jumped at the chance.
Goggins also has this to add about his villainous role in the film:
Is he a villain? Sure, that is an easy description. An antagonist, for sure. But [like other characters] I have been so lucky to have the opportunity to play over the course of my career, there are real reasons behind his antagonism, and it’s not what you’d expect. He is very complicated, and his motivations are pure.
I’d just like to note at one point he also says, “I am ready to get lost in a goddamn tomb!” so, clearly, he’s rather excited for the film.
Here’s a new image of Stephen Merchant’s mutant character, Caliban, from the film.
A new international trailer for the film has a teeny bit more footage, focusing on the power coins that give the Rangers their superpowers.
A janitor is woefully absent in this latest picture from the film.
