DVD File have posted specs for the upcoming Region 1 Tomb Raider from Paramount. Based on the phenomenally popular computer game series, Tomb Raider stars Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft as she battles an evil archaeologist and travels around ruins all over the world. Unfortunately, while the concept has promise - a female Indiana Jones for the 21st Century, the execution left a lot to be desired. It's a shame that an actress as good as Jolie was given such poor material to work with.
Ah well, the DVD is due for release on 13 November retailing for $29.95. It will feature a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer, Dolby Digital 2.0 and 5.1 sound along with an audio commentary, "Digging Into Tomb Raider," "The Visual Effects Of Tomb Raider" and "Are You Game?: The Lara Croft Phenomenon" featurettes, a "Tomb Raider Chronicles" computer game demo, and trailers. There have been rumours of an extended director's cut, but there's no mention of it being released on this DVD.
