Video game adventurer Lara Croft comes to life in a movie where she races against time and villains to recover powerful ancient artifacts.
Highest grossing action film with a woman in the lead role. Second is Aliens (1986).
In the opening fight scene, Lara slams her back against a sarcophagus in order to pause to reload her guns. The sarcophagus gives forward and shakes in reaction to Lara's back, revealing it to be made of rubber or some soft material in order to not hurt Angelina Jolie's back.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
