Tomb Raider’s upcoming movie appears to be really faithful to the video game

We don’t usually share this kind of stories but compared to other movies that are based on video-games, the upcoming movie for Tomb Raider appears to be really faithful to its source material. Warner Bros has just released its debut trailer and the guys over at IGN have made a comparison video between the video game and the movie trailer.

As you can clearly see, this is the most faithful movie adaptation of a video game ever released. And while we expect some differences here and there, the plot and pretty much all major details appear to be taken directly from the game.

The fact that this movie trailer can be easily recreated, shot by shot, via the game’s cut-scenes also shows how close to the Crystal Dynamics’ reboot this new Tomb Raider movie actually is.
