1536. Tomb Raider Chronicles - HAS A BRITISH SCIENTIST FOUND NEFERTITI
While Lara Croft blasts her way through movie theaters, television has its own real-life version of Tomb Raider on the Discovery Channel. Airing tonight at 9, Nefertiti Resurrected tracks an expedition led by University of York scientist Joann Fletcher, a British expert on mummies, into a tomb containing human remains that, she suspects, are those of Nefertiti, the legendary Egyptian queen who died more than 3,000 years ago. If she is correct, she will be credited with the most staggering archaeological find since the discovery of King Tutankhamen.

The newest float in the summer sequel parade belongs to Lara Croft, the swashbuckling archaeologist and British aristocrat who rose to digital stardom as the protagonist of a pioneering video game.

The object of her search is nothing less than the original Pandora's Box, which is revealed to be some sort of intergalactic surprise package that was once the source of all life on earth but now contains the very essence of death and evil.

1540. 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.
