New Tomb Raider movie?

January 28, 2009

I realize that what I’m about to talk about isn’t exactly animation or comic related (I suppose one could argue that Tomb Raider was made into a comic series and the video games are “animated”…)


I found this article today on Yahoo!

Another Tomb Raider movie? Really?

Now, I’m not a stodgy, pretentious movie critic so I’m not going to go into how terrible the Tomb Raider movies were because in all honesty, I thought that they were okay, not great or good but something to watch on a bored weekend. 


Another one? 

If that one doesn’t get you then the fact that they’re switching out Jolie might but that depends on whether or not you like her. 

What gets me is the line the article about changing her origin story. Why? What are they going to make her a tough woman from the Bronx so that she’ll relate to Americans because you all know how we can’t possibly understand aristocratic Brits (yet they’ve made like 5 movies based on Pride and Prejudice and all of them have made disgusting amounts of money, disgusting as in why would you watch that movie?).

I just wanted to pass that information along in case anyone else is a fan of the Tomb Raider games like me. 

That series takes it back for me. The original Tomb Raider was the first video game that I ever beat by myself as a kid. I was a reader not a gamer.
