Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has been shooting scenes for Par's Tomb Raider sequel The Cradle Of Life in and around Hong Kong capitalising on the panoramic splendor of Victoria Harbour - littered with traditional boats to modern cargo ships - as backdrop for a series of electrically charged action-packed sequences involving unscrupulous crime boss Chen Lo, played by oriental actor Simon Yam.

According to a witness report from movie magazine Dark Horizons, one scene sported Angelina Jolie and a male co-star rushing from an office and into a glass elevator. Jolie was wearing a tan-coloured jacket with two Desert Eagle hand-guns strapped to her side. Jolie is then attacked by her co-star during a later scene. The production will then move to Ocean Terminal for an action sequence involving a double-decker tram.

The Jan de Bont helmed production has entered the final stages of filming before post production prepares the movie for it's July 25th silver screen debut. Jolie, who recently toured the war-torn region of Kosovo raising awareness for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, returns as fearless British aristocrat Lara Croft in the second of three adventures spawned from the successful video-game series of the same name.

The original Simon West-helmed adaptation garnered more than $230 million in revenue worldwide, coining $48 million during its domestic opening weekend and remains the highest ever box-office earner for a female-driven movie. Tomb Raider remains one of Britain's most potent video-game franchises to date, supported by over 30-million unit sales featuring the worlds most famous digital heroine.
