This Tomb Raider UE5 cinema video with Angelina Jolie and Christoph Walz is impressive

A new Tomb Raider UE5 cinematic video featuring fan favorites Angelina Jolie and Christoph Waltz has been released.

Created by digital artist “Lorenzo_CGI,” this “The Last Revelation Teaser Tribute” is a short cinematic video in Unreal Engine 5.3 that looks really impressive. In the video, we see Angelina Jolie portraying Lara Croft and Christoph Waltz portraying Mr. Von Croy. No AI or deepfakes were used to create this video, which might make it even more impressive. “For this project, I used Texturing xyz for skin texturing and for the hair maps for Lara, I used (with some retouching) the hair from the 3D Scan store,” the artist writes. “For the creation of the environment, I tried to recreate the game's environment with some differences using the assets from Megascan.”

He added: “For the animation I used a combination of motion capture I created (see picture of the cheap helmet) using the Metahuman Animator and the amazing tool Metapipe and Iclone software from Reallusion.”

You can watch the new cinematic below. Let us know what you think of this video below. Although it's just a fan project, it might offer a glimpse into what's possible with the upcoming new Tomb Raider game using Unreal Engine 5.

Crystal Dynamics' next Tomb Raider was announced to be coming in 2022. Here's what the studio's general manager had to say about it at the time:
