Angel of Darkness blamed for poor box office

Producers of the movie <i>Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life</i> blame the game Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness for the film's poor box-office performance.


According to a Reuters report, Paramount Pictures believes that Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life's relatively poor box-office performance ($21.8 million in its first weekend) is due to the reception of Eidos Interactive's Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness game, which was released on the PlayStation 2 and the PC. "The only thing we can attribute that to is that the gamers were not happy with the latest version of the Tomb Raider video game, which is our core audience," Paramount distribution president Wayne Lewellen told the news agency.
