Tomb Raider

Perhaps the most famous videogame-based adaptations are the pair of films that starred Angelina Jolie. The first, released in 2001, has grossed more than $131 million to date — more than any other game-based film. The lesser-reviewed sequel earned a still-respectable $66 million. The franchise isn't finished, either. A planned 2013 reboot is expected to focus on the origins of Lara Croft (one year after a new “Tomb Raider” game explores the same theme).
