[ March 20th 2001 ]

IGN Filmforce scores this info from an upcoming Tomb Raider TV slot:

ABC Television in Australia will have a special report on the film Tomb Raider and one of its shooting locations, the Angkor Wat ruins of Cambodia in Southeast Asia. The Angkor Wat exteriors were used during some climactic scenes of the film, and the television special looks at the effects that renewed tourist interest, brought on by Tomb Raider, could endanger the historic monument to Cambodia's past. The Tomb Raider shooting locations ranged from England (Lara Croft's English manor) to Iceland (exploration of ice caves in a volcano) to Cambodia. Angkor Wat was used to create the temple at which the climactic scenes of the movie take place.

The temple is home to an ancient treasure pursued by Lara and her enemies, and a full complement of bizarre booby-traps (like robotic monkey-soldiers) make extracting the relic a difficult feat! As far as shooting sites, a better location could hardly have been found - Angkor Wat is one of the world's most famous and spectacular archaeological sites. The show airs this Wednesday and may contain new footage from the movie.
