Lara Croft: Tomb Raider The Cradle of Life

To bad it's in "Real" format but it looks okay still have to wait quicktime for best quality. The trailer looks good but who knows how it really is, thouth I think I'll go and see it everyone likes a good popcorn flick right.

wow...that was the most dull trailer I've seen for a big summer blockbuster in a long time... I am stunned at how much that trailer blew... I'm not sure how the movie will be (i didn't like the first one) but the marketing team really needs to re-evaluate what they're doing, because that was cliched dullsville....

Looks like a remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark...but with a better looking lead.
Cradle = Ark and Globe = Medallion
I'm sure I'll watch it when it comes to DVD though.

This movie looks a bit too eXtreme for me!

What, with all the crazy motorcycle and jet ski stunts, that I'm sure are absolutely necessary.

I liked the first one, but this one looks like rental only.

It's not the most intellectual looking trailer (it is based on a video game character, after all)

Looks like a good Saturday matinee/get out of the heat/ogle Angeline Jolie/mindless escapism kind of flick.

My god does this look bad, I don't care how hot she looks, if we see this piece of crap, we will have to deal with more and more sequels so lets end them now.

I can't get the trailer to come up. kazaalite must've messed up my hosts file so some stuff just won't come up. Anyone have a direct link or anything?

I think I said this exact thing after seeing the first Tomb Raider trailer: "It looks awesome....TO THE EXTREEEEEEEME!"

I think I'll pass on this Raiders-wannabe stinker.

For everything going on, a very underwhelming trailer, no big pop.

I used to have a major thing for Jolie, but she is just too damned weird for me now (Billy Bob Thorton? Your Brother? Sheesh!) Regardless, the trailer looks really boring (saw it before The Core last night)...

Really a completely underwhelming trailer.

I didn't really care for the first one, I didn't hate, but it was very "blah!".

Could I be convinced to see this one, sure, but not with that trailer. Talk about paint by numbers. Though it did have some nifty stunt work.

Looks like it will be ok. It'll probably be like every other sequal and be inferior to the first, so I'm not expecting anything other then 2 hours of decent entertainment.

Why did you buy the DVD if you hate the film and dislike the star?

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

I thought it was gonna say "THAT DOESN'T SUCK".

I would say "no" to that.

I was wondering the same exact thing, I totally want one of those panisonic thingies that does everything though

I seriously hope this movie bombs so they don't make a third one

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.
