TOMB RAIDER - Official Trailer #1

Yesterday my tweet feed got really worked up over the premier of the new Tomb Raider trailer. There were a lot of "Is this the first good video game movie?" takes, which first off is ridiculous. Mortal Kombat was the first good video game movie. Secondly, I don't think this trailer looks that great. Call me an old crank but this just looks like 2 hours of the cut scenes from the video game.

Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE the new Tomb Raider video games and I think they're ripe for adaptation but this almost looks to close to the source material. The action scenes don't look super cool, they kind of look ridiculous and full of questionable CGI. Also if the movie follows the breakneck pace of the video game, we might as well call it Crank 3: Jungle Boogaloo.

Which I guess would be cool... I don't know. I think I just talked my self into liking this trailer.

Wait, are you saying Double Dragon wasn't a good movie? Alyssa Milano! Scott Wolf! Scott f-ing Wolf !!! And it made 2 million dollars !! What more could you want?!?

In researching this also found out Street Fighter made a hair under $100m, that' good money for 1994 (though Mortal Kombat did $122m).
