Tomb Raider fails to live up to box office expectations


Angelina Jolie's new Tomb Raider movie has failed to live up to expectations - entering the US box office charts in fourth place.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider II: Cradle of Life took just 13.8 million over the weekend - less than half what the original film earned when it debuted in June 2001.

It was beaten by new movie Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, which took the top spot with an estimated 20.5 million.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Legend of the Black Pearl held on to second place with an estimated 14.2 million, while last week's number one Bad Boys II dropped to third spot with 13.9 million.

Real-life racing film Seabiscuit came in fifth, with 13.6 million.
