1516. Tomb Raider Chronicles - TOMB RAIDER STAR FINDS TREASURE IN GERMANY
In the film Tomb Raider Angelina Jolie plays a daredevil archaeologist who travels the world in search of precious relics.

1517. Tomb Raider Chronicles - KORN ALBUM ATTACKED BY MUSIC FANS
Fans attacked Korn's last album, 2002's Untouchables, for being too slickly produced, and it wound up being the band's lowest-selling album to date. Korn seems to have taken those opinions into consideration when writing its sixth album, due this fall. Did My Time is featured in the movie Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life -- but it doesn't appear on the soundtrack. The song opens with a raw guitar riff before switching to the heavy, bass-driven sound that has spawned many an imitator since Korn's debut nine years ago.

1520. 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.
