Don't hold your breath. Even the regular trailers are just commercials for the video game.

I would say "no" to that.

Commercials doubling as movie trailers. Great, we have now officially hit a new low.

Can't we please just round up all these marketing weasels and put them into camps?

I'll bet we don't see one that doesn't advertise the movie Tomb Raider II.

When is this movie coming out? I saw ONLY ONE trailer for it a few months ago and nothing since. I have no idea when it hits theaters.

I saw an actual trailer on TV, and it still featured in the images both the jeep and the video camera that's advertised.

I'd assume that the makers of TR: TCOL were so desperate for funds this is what they had to do.

Even the posters or standees advertise Jeep and from what I've read, some theaters won't put them since they're not getting paid by Jeep for the advertising.

The standees I've seen advertise Jolie's breasts more than Jeep.

In fact, her beautiful frame covers up the actual name of the title. I think that speaks for itself.

So it goes.

Don't forget to take a picture with the Panasonic Digital camera that's advertised.
