I have a feeling that was the first draft that got unproduced from the writer of Mortal Kombat.

Is it the one that started with Lara on a school trip with her plane going down? If I recall correctly it also featured her parents being archaeologists.

Games and movies are two different mediums - that's why it can't be cracked. Playing a game is an entirely different experience compared to watching a movie.

True they are different, but there is always a general story that can be followed for most games. Not everything from the game has to be included. Certain spots in the game are honestly just to lengthen the gameplay.

This movie just needed a young Lara going on her first expedition to find the city of Yamatai with a crew and her friends. They ship wreck on the island they were looking for and find they can't leave. They find a cult on the island who worships the queen Himiko and are trying to bring her back within a new vessel. Lara tries to stop them all and save her kidnapped friend, who is chosen as the new vessel.

Too bad that concept has never been exploited as an ultimate finisher move in any of the games.

The same is also the case with novels, yet they are regularly adapted to films in a successfull manner. I think the problem with adapting games isn't primarily the medium itself, particularly not in the case of cinematic Hollywood style games like TR2013, but rather the manner in which they are adopted. They aren't being taken seriously enough.

Where did you read these scripts?

Do you think they're Solarii or Trinity kind type of characters? TBH. I think they're an all new force

^^ They look totally hideous and mundane.

Are they going to appear in the movie in this way

The final couple of pages are ruining my hype for this movie.

Where is the positivity guyz

EDIT: why would someone comment on a picture and then give out his phone number

It is a phone nmbr right?
