    Bah, the only thing Angelina had going for her at the time was she was the "it" actress that every guy just HAD to see nude. Her acting skills were no better then anyone elses then, and they still aren't now. I really wish the people associated w/ the film would get over the "Oh my God! We've got to replace ANGELINA JOLIE!!!" mentality. She's not THAT good, and based off the changes she had made to the script of "TR:CoL", I'd say she more then likely knows nothing about TR anyways, other then "Ah, she's got big breasts. I've got big breasts as well. I should play this part."
    Gotta admit I had a laugh earlier when I read someone said they wanted someone with meat on their bones like angelina, and not some twig playing Lara. What's Angelina weigh? 100lbs. soaking wet?

    Excellent, hopefully this movie turns out well, the old ones I found enjoyable. And if it's got the same people that have produced some big films in the past, that proves promising! I'll have to keep my eye out for news on this one

    Yeah that is an interesting poi.... whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???

    Are you *BLEEPING* kidding me? I would post the joker "not sure if serious" pic here, but I'm sincerely HOPING you aren't.

    Is Tomb Raider, Wanted, and Beowulf the only Jolie movies you've seen? You should really check out Life or Something Like It, Pushing Tin, Girl Interrupted, Gia, and MOST especially Changeling. Angelina is NOT just an actress who get by her looks alone. She is a genuinely accomplished actress, I mean actual credible talent here who has on many occasions delivered an outstanding performance.

    Basically she has more than proven herself and shown how she has earned her oscar and each and every nomination she received.

    But to get this back on topic, my confidence is still placed with Summer Glau to bring to life the reimagining of Lara. She also has demonstrated great talent as well as possessing the combat training to pull off the physicality of Lara. Plus she's classically trained as a dancer which which may seem irrelevant, but that includes some gymnastics which would translate well into Lara's acrobatics prowess.

    In short, the looks, skills, and acting ability. It's gotta be Summer

    I disagree.

    I just cannot envision Summer Glau, arguably quite the spoiled little Drama Queen (and I don't mean that in a bad way to be mean, to be flaming, just to describe most of her roles, or how I see her) as playing a strong-willed, probably taller and more mature looking Lara Croft. Glau just doesn't have it, whatever it is, the caliber of Jolie or anyone else who'd be suited to play her.
    Qu'est-ce que

    I do have to agree with you; she's done some pretty cool films were she has been pretty good in the part.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0i9vHYiW2g - As you said

    And of course, Bone Collector in the days before she became as famous I think (1999, I beleive) I used to love this film as a kid!

    I agree with Ants and adobeARTIST, Angelina Jolie has proven herself more than once as a capable and talented actress!

    As for the actress to portray Lara in the new movie, I'm with adobeARTIST (as I've said before)! Summer Glau would be simply FANTASTIC for the role! Not only she is beautiful, she is a really talented actress! And I do think her background as a dancer is a huge pro for the role!

    As for the other news, I'm really optimistic after reading the news about the chosen writers for the project! Maybe this time we'll have some really good argument for the movie!

    This.

    Jolie really is a great actress even if people find her overrated.
    LOL I love all of those movies you listed, as well as Original Sin.

    No, I'm not "bleeping" kidding you. I've never seen the big deal about her, acting or looks wise. Never seen "Wanted" or "Beowulf" actually. I read the Wanted comics, and that's well enough for me while the latter just didn't catch my attention based on the previews I saw. I wouldn't use "Pushing Tin" in your argument, tho. 'Cos one could easily fire back that it really isn't THAT hard to act like an alchoholic floozie, hang all over Billy Bob, and lie in bed with a shirt unbottoned a bit. As for the TR movies, I walked out of the first one in the theater after the big robot showed up and didn't get any further then that into it till, oh, a year ago or so. Honestly can't say as it was a definitive performance in my eyes. In short, she's just not a favorite of mine. Call me kooky, call me crazy, call me a blasphemer or whatever, but it is what it is: my personal opinion. Obviously a few million film goers dis-agree with me. Cool. Whatever.

    Summer Glau I can't comment on. I don't watch television, so I've not seen any work of hers. Still gonna stick with my opinion that Eidos should just do a self-funded CG movie.

    Oh, and the Oscars are just like the Grammy's: It's just a popularity contest.

    Was having a few drinks w/ the only gamer friend I have last night (sad, yeah, but everyone else has "grown up" except us two ) and we had one of those "Man, wouldn't it be cool if...?" convos. Anyways, long story short, here's what our beverage fueled creativity, um, created. The movie we'd pay to see...

    First of all, what looks? To me, Angelina looks like a retarded fish. She is the furthest thing from beautiful I've ever seen (ok that's an overstatement, but she really isn't that good looking).

    I watched Changeling, and it was an incredible movie, and Angelina did, I have to admit, give an outstanding performance. However, I still don't think her acting ability quite matches up to some other performances, such as Natalie Portman in Black Swan or Colin Firth in the King's Speech.

    And when it come to Summer Glau, DEFINATELY!!!!!!
    Behind Jennifer Garner, she is my FAVOURITE actress and I think that she is incredibly awesome . Perfect fit for Lara (I've only thought about how wonderful she is for the part now )

    It was so sad when she got shot in Dollhouse though, I know it is all fictional, but still

    OT: I personally thought Black Swan was horrible.
    Natalie Portman has played in better films than that.

    I guess we all have our own opinions.

    Summer Glau would be perfect for this role. I hope she gets it.

    If I'm honest, right now, as of this moment... until this thread I'd never heard of the likes of Summer Glau.

    @LC is Me - Black Swan, not my cup of tea at all and will never watch it but I've never been a fan of Natalie Portman either... not that I remember anyway.

    I'm more of a old school fan of people like Pam Grier, Kurt Russel, Clint Eastwood... non of that over-the-top Hollywood rubbish. But I'm more curious about who the director will be... please be somebody who never went to 'film school', whatever that is.

    Whoever gets the role will have some pretty big shoes to fill, don't you think?
