1511. Tomb Raider Chronicles - LARA CROFT COUNTRY GEARS FOR TOURISTS
North Wales is preparing to welcome a deluge of movie-minded tourists all keen to follow in the footsteps of screen adventurer Lara Croft. The release on August 22 of Tomb Raider 2 is expected to trigger massive interest in Snowdonia, the location of a Chinese village in the film. Nearly a year after Angelina Jolie arrived on the shores of the lake Llyn Gwynant with 150 cast and crew members the area is about to receive international exposure and tourism agencies are at work behind the scenes to ensure that Wales receives recognition as the real star of the sequel.

1512. Tomb Raider Chronicles - PARAMOUNT CITES AOD AS CAUSE FOR FLOP
Paramount Pictures has cited the mediocre performance of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness as possible cause for the failure of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life at the U.S. box office this weekend where the Angelina Jolie driven motion picture netted just 21.7 million and ranked fourth. The pic, armed with its usual armada of commercial partners to help ensure a degree of success, also came under heavy criticism although most argued the sequel faired marginally better than the original.

Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over came in first at the box office this weekend with $32.5 million, but the mystery remained which of four contenders would come in second. Two new films - the Angelina Jolie adventure sequel Lara Croft: Tomb Raider The Cradle of Life and the true-life racehorse drama Seabiscuit - became locked in a virtual dead-heat for the follow up slot with the recent releases Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and the action-comedy Bad Boys II.

1515. Tomb Raider Chronicles - ADRIAN SMITH TALKS TOMB RAIDER 7 & 8
Core Design boss Adrian Heath-Smith has sensationally revealed details on the future direction of British aristocrat Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider series: The story in The Angel of Darkness has been really important for us, it's been argued that there's maybe too much story in this game. The reason is that we decided we'd do more than one game from the get go, rather then one new game and then go 'guess what guys, you've got to do another one'.
