Paramount Pictures Lara Croft: Tomb Raider motion picture has joined its U.S. counterpart by topping the U.K box office during it's opening weekend generating 3.8m in ticket sales despite horrified reviews from critics.

Reports from various sources during the weekend have suggested that Eidos Interactive, after generating a much needed 1m from selling the Tomb Raider rights to Paramount Pictures, will not be getting any share of the movies box office revenue. The company instead wil be hoping a raise in public awareness will act as a catalyst to boost its software sales.

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider chronicles the adventures of a British archaeologist [Jolie] sent on a quest for an ancient time-traveling device called the Clock of Ages. The Paramount Pictures motion picture has netted over $100m since its' U.S. premiere two weeks ago with studio bosses branding Tomb Raider the most successful female-driven movie to date.
