movie rumour mill Aint It Cool News scores this
report on an upcoming trailer for Par's Tomb Raider
sequel The Cradle Of Life starring Oscar winner
Angelina Jolie and Red Dwarf star Chris Barrie.
The Jan de Bont helmed production is concluding
at Pinewood Studios before post production wields
scissor and tape to ready the film for it's July
25th silver screen debut. Details as follows:
plot looked straight forward enough. Lara is looking
for "Pandoras Box" so that some bad guys do not
get their hands on it first and mess up the world.
Nothing new there. The action looked pretty good.
There were some cool shots of Lara firing her
trade mark two guns at a car and then running
over the top of it. Another shot of her on a motorbike
jumping off some ledge out into the air.
was one underwater scene with a shark which looked
even more fake than the ones in the computer games,
but I was told that the effects are still not
finished. By far the coolest scene almost at the
end of the trailer was Lara and someone else sky
diving off a really tall building. [Download footage
HERE] Cut in with all this was some shots of various
Lara at different exotic locations. There was
also a sex scene which may have involved Lara,
the scene jumped by very quick!"
