The Tomb Raider Teaser...

The Tomb Raider Teaser... premieres today. I received an email about it, and it seems Paramount's pushing it really hard. Perhaps it's just me, but I've noticed that since Episode I, Teasers are becoming just as popular as the full blown trailer. Anyway, here's to hoping Paramount has a well thought out story and good acting to boot.

I stumbled across this yesterday, funny how promo shots are syndicated as news.

You're kidding, right?

That teaser looked an awful lot like a trailer. I hate trailers because they give too much away and are too long--this one is certainly the latter. Sheesh, just give us the general mood, okay?

And yes, it looks bad. How many of you are going anyway? I know I am.

So how's her British accent?

You can go right to the trailer here. Her accent isn't too bad. Looks like a fun flick.

I'm sure Paramount's chief concern was with matching Lara's technical specs.

I don't know, I'm not going to trust anything with Angelina Jolie in it.

Doesn't Lara Croft has red hair (or at least reddish brown), not black?

I think y'all are thinking too much about a video game movie. ;)

Throw this on the heap with Street Fighter.

Hey, are you disparaging one of the greatest movies of all time?

Why, next you'll be saying that "Super Mario Brothers" was bad...

(And, yes...I haven't slept much in the past week. I'm seeing all kinds of pretty colors right now...)

It's a movie based on a game that's a rip-off of a movie. Whoop-de-fricken-doo. Why don't they just make another "Indiana Jones" sequel? It'd probably be better and make more money.

1. If they made another Indiana Jones sequel, the lead character wouldn't have big boobs.

2. They are going to make another Indiana Jones sequel.

I dunno, if Harrison Ford lets himself go in his old age...

2. They are going to make another Indiana Jones sequel.

That rumor has been going around forever. Supposedly it's on Spielberg's plate, after A.I. And Minority Report. And Memoirs of a Giesha. And...

AJ doesn't have big boobs anyway! I think the movie will be bad. I'm not planning on seeing it.

According to the Register article cited above, Jolie is a DD. Seems big enough to me.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! DD? OMG! She is not even close.
