    TF 3 - Yep

    Fuck that noise let's go all out and get a John Madden Football 92 film made. I think there's a story to tell there.

    Don't at all like the direction of the new 'Tomb Raider' games, and from the looks of this (looks like a direct film adaptation of the first reboot), I shall be giving it an equally wide berth.

    The neck memes thing is kinda funny though!

    So, now we're finally getting a video game adaptation which is true to the video game and people don't like it...because it's true to the video game :)

    I don't know how close it's going to stick to it but by all accounts, it looks pretty close.

    Not close enough, imo. I'd be fine with a straight adaptation; it's a pretty decent, grounded (until the end), coming-of-TR tale that would work fine on the big screen.

    It's the stuff they've added/changed that ruins it for me. That and the really shitty CG/wire work/slo-mo shots that all look really cheap.

    Well to be fair no one's seen the film so we don't know what the extent of the changes. Regardless I personally don't think it's going to be anything worth your time, just like most game to film adaptations.

    Doesn't look as bad as the Assassins Creed one I guess

    Looks exactly like the 2013 game except, somehow, less realistic....

    Seems like a pretty typical action adventure movie. They can be a lot of fun but I will wait for reviews because they can also be terrible.

    A lot of it looks good, in context to the latest version of TR. But the action looks crap and I find it more unbelievable on film than in the game.
    I don't get why they had to have her dad asking her to save the world either, that's not a thing that happens in the franchise - its more Lara finding a thing and the fallout of it.

    Looks a bit bland ... Wonder if it will completely copy the game and be all shooty bang bang with the odd tomb 'room' thrown in randomly

    Will she cry after her first kill?? Before turning full on psycho Rambo

    Early professional reviews suggest that the film is...not utterly terrible, which is unexpected. Vikander herself is getting quite a bit of praise.

    Will she cry after her first kill?? Before turning full on psycho Rambo
    Apparently, yes.

    Reviews are coming in. Film is apparently a bit dull and not much fun.

    I'm looking forward to this. As far as video game adaptations go the TR reboot game seems like perfect material for an action movie.

    They play this 20 second trailer at the gym over and over with a dramatised version of Beyonce's 'I'm a survivor '. If that's the tone to go by then I'm out. And it looks a bit boring, even with all the shooty shooty

    For some reason they felt the need to give the other film a 4k release

    The best news about this releasing is that I don't have to watch the trailer....every...single...bloody...time I go to the cinema like I have this last year.
