Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life Blames Videogame Counterpart
Apparently crappy videogames contribute to poor box-office numbers for movies bearing the same name. This is the announcement made by a recent Reuter's report that states Paramount Pictures is blaming Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness for the poor box-office performance of Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life ($21.8 million in its first weekend). Considering the way the Tomb Raider series is going, if another movie is made based on the videogame franchise, more blame is certain to come Eidos' way.
"The only thing we can attribute that to is that the gamers were not happy with the latest version of the Tomb Raider video game, which is our core audience," Paramount distribution president Wayne Lewellen told the news agency.
