With some pride and not a little enthusiasm, my source at Paramount announced that they were going to the UK Premier of the second Tomb Raider movie on Tuesday (in its entirety: Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life – they really must sort out their franchise designation if it’s going to be a runner).

Will it, I enquired, be any good? In fact they had already seen it once.

And is it any good? Angelina Jolie is very hot! – came the reply.

Great! And the film itself – any good? But I was offered another drink instead.
