When People Say Movie Audiences Are Not Accepting of a Female Action Hero:

$102,515,793 & an Oscar Nomination with a possible sequel in the works.

$118,311,368 (making back its budget).

$136,307,228 with 2 movies/a $30 million budget.

$163,789,606 with 2 more movies coming out.

$196,828,266 with 2 movies.

$222,412,919 with 4 movies/a 5th in development.

$244,523,928 with 5 movies.

$269,361,252 with 4 movies/a 5th in development.

And of course…

$1,169,814,624 with one more coming out.

The Hunger Games was the #3 movie of 2012 after Avengers & Dark Knight Rises

Catching Fire was the #1 movie of 2013. 

Mockingjay - Part 1 was the #2 movie of 2014 after American Sniper.

I’m really surprised that we don’t have more female-driven films, not just action films. Pitch Perfect 2 just made a ton of money and Tomorrowland - starring Britt Robertson in the lead - just won Memorial Day weekend. So can we get more movies like this out there?


Some photos from Carlisle Comic Con yesterday!

18th March 2017.

Costume: Lara Croft’s Doppelgänger - Render/Wii version (Tomb Raider Underworld).

The organisers of Preston Comic Con​’s first event in Carlisle and it was a great success despite a few guest dropouts. The cosplay competition was fantastic as it was at Preston!
The audience was so enthusiastic and the atmosphere was lovely.
I’ll definitely go again next year!

There’s still lots of #TombRaider20 left before the year concludes! We’re on to examining the Lara Croft universe games. Check out the Lara Croft fankit on flickr.

The Lara Croft universe was established with the 2010 release of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. After concluding Tomb Raider: Underworld, explorations for a co-op, downloadable title began. The first experiment was a game named “Raiders” featuring an army of 3rd generation Croft Doppelgangers created by Natla Industries, now run by Amanda Evert. Here are some early explorations for Lara’s clones. The narrative and gameplay eventually evolved into what we know as “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light” today!
