The British Crown Estate has reportedly generated an additional 11.1 per cent of revenue from tourism largely attributed by awarding Paramount Pictures permission to feature it's Swinley Forest in their latest action adventure motion picture Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

Swinley Forest was extravagantly transformed into the steamy Cambodian rainforest after original scenes shot in Africa were rejected in the final cut of the Simon West helmed movie. Although the Crown Estate remained quiet about the actual fee collected from Paramount, inflated tourism and a rise in awareness to be tendered to studios looking for locations to shoot their productions elevated last years total income to 147.7 million.

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, starring Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie, chronicles the adventures of Core Design's British aristocrat send of a quest to recover the ancient Clock Of Ages.
