Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) is back in action and faces her most perilous mission: to recover what ancient civilization believed to be the essence of all evil, Pandora's Box. She must travel the globe, from Greece to Hong Kong to Kenya and beyond to get to the box before it's found by a maniacal scientist (Ciarán Hinds) whose plan is to use it for mass annihilation. For this adventure, Lara recruits her ex-partner - Terry Sheridan (Gerard Butler) - a dangerous mercenary who has previously betrayed Lara and their country. She knows he's the best for the mission, but can she trust him again? Join her as she races through furious hand-to-hand battles, blazing shoot-outs and breathtaking sky-diving escapes to try to save the ancient artifact... and mankind's future.

  • During the Luna Temple sequence the guys wearing SOLA wetsuits. This brand is worn by Lara in the video game Tomb Raider II.
  • The scene with the underwater scooters was shot dry-for-wet, as actual underwater test shots with the scooters proved unsuccessful.
  • One of Angelina Jolie's stunt doubles was a man.
  • The wrist watch Lara Croft wears is a Tissot T-Touch.
  • Jolie wears considerably less (and possibly no) padding in this film, as the decision was made to give Lara more realistic dimensions.
