7 Guardians of the Tomb



[boy shouts, indistinct]


- What are you doing here?

- I'm sorry.

I did try to call.

Jia, we need to talk.

I have nothing to say to you.

I didn't ask you in.

It's your brother.

He's missing.


Are you kidding me?

He called from

the research site in China.

[Man on video]

Were you there too?

What was that?

- Go take a look.

- Ethan!

- Whoa!

- [men shouting]




[men shouting, screaming]

[audio stops]

I will find Luke.

But I need your help.

I have a team on the ground

in China.

We fly out tonight.






[rock music playing]

Could be in Shanghai

drinking beer.

Oh, come on. You should

take pride in your work.

Work? We might as well

be looking for Bigfoot.

Yeah. That's what

makes it fun.

Fun? A wild weekend

in Bangkok... that's fun.

You need to get out more,


- [phone rings]

- Get my phone.



Who's Jia?

- Oh, Jesus.

- [phone ringing]

She just doesn't give up.

Are you nuts?

She's smoking hot.

Hey, if you're not interested,

I could...

Hey. She's my sister.

[woman] The taipan.

One of the deadliest reptiles

in the world.

They are also

the most aggressive.

But I am an expert

in venomous animals,

so if anyone who says

the snakes are more afraid

of you then you are of them,

has never met

one of these.


[all gasping]

One bite can paralyze

your entire

central nervous system,

shutting down your major organs

and killing you in hours.

But don't worry,

we can play with this one...

it's fake.

- You want to play?

- Hmm.

Be careful.

It's gonna... bite you!

[kids laugh]

Don't worry,

I have a little brother too.

I bet one day

you'll be just like him.

He's a super-brave adventurer.


The rosy periwinkle...

long rumored

in its native Madagascar

for precious healing powers.

Nobody else believed it,

but our investors took a risk.

Together we've saved the lives

of over 12 million children

who would have otherwise died

of lymphocytic leukemia.

That, and it's the best

investment they ever made.

This is all very educational,

Dr. Kitteridge,

but if you want us to commit,

we need details.

And you'll have them.

We have a team in the field

due to report back any minute.

Gentlemen, I have a reputation

for achieving the impossible.

I'd like you to trust that.

Thanks for coming.

Lisa, will you please

see our friends out?

It'll be my pleasure.

[Lisa] So, are you

flying out tonight?

[conversation continues,


- There's other investors.

- Mason, we're almost broke.

- We need money.

- I know.

- I'll get it.

- When?

Every big pharma company

on the planet

is looking for a breakthrough,

and you've got guys

chasing a fairy tale.

It's not a fairy tale.

We're on the cusp of something

no one has ever seen before.

Something that would

bring Biotech back

as a leader in life extension



Here. Let's have a look.

You sure this is the place?

[phone beeps]

Here is where the locals

put the last sighting.

The northern edge.

Man, it smells

like someone died.

What the hell's that?

Gas build-up from

the old mine, I bet.

Probably methane mixed

with hydrogen sulfide.

It's only dangerous

if you strike a match.

Wasting your time.

The sooner we look around,

the sooner you'll get your beer.


- Luke! Luke!

- [groaning]

Luke, talk to me!

You okay?


- Yeah, I'm okay.

- What the hell's going on?



- Aaah!

- What?

What is it?

Luke, you're freaking me out,

man. Say something.
