Tomb Raider where filmed
Posted by Ra Moon
The new Lara Croft action-packed movie is based on the 2013 reboot of the original Tomb Raider video game from 1993. In this occasion, the athletic archaeologist will embark in a dangerous adventure looking for the fictional lost island of Yamatai.

Emerging star Alicia Vikander substitutes Angelina Jolie, who was the titular Lara Croft for the 2001 and 2003 films. Into the Badlands led actor Daniel Wu plays Lara's ally, Lu Ren, and the bad guy is interpreted by The Hateful Eight actor Walton Goggins.

Tomb Raider was filmed in South Africa and England. These are the spoiler-free filming locations for the movie reboot of one of the most successful video games of all time:

Where is the Croft Manor
In England, the new Croft Manor was filmed at Wilton House near Salisbury (Wiltshire). This is considered one of England's most beautiful country houses, seat of the Earls of Pembroke for the last four centuries.

An outdoor water tank was built in the studios lot specially for the film. So don't look for the river, the actual location of the waterfall or the island, as it was all created using digital effects. Images courtesy of Warner Bros

    1. Ciao Marco! We believe that this stone arch actually doesn't exist, it seems to be one more creation from the CGI team. Thanks!
