Tomb Raider

Synopsis: Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father's global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he's truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can't understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad's last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn't be

Further research on Himiko.

According to legend.

Himiko, the first queen of Japan

was a powerful sorceress who ruled her

empire through dark magic.

Spreading death and destruction,

by the mere touch of her hand.

She was only stopped by

a single twist of fate.

An army of her own

Generals bound...

and dragged Himiko...

to an uninhabitable island

in the middle of the treacherous

Devil's Sea.

There she remains entombed

beneath the mountains.

I found a spec, on an

old map that no one else has.

And she's there.

Waiting to be unleashed.

I have to get there first.

Even if it means doing...

the last thing

I'd ever want to do...

Leaving my Lara behind.

You gotta make decisions, Lara.

You gotta make something to happen.

Counter punching doesn't work for you,

you don't have the skill.

- Thanks, Terry.

- You're welcome.

Come on, Lara!

Stop dancing, start fighting!

Yes girl!

Come on!

Nice one, Lara!

You've got this.

- It's over.

- Isn't.

Then get out of it.

Come on, Lara, tap out!

- Don't say it.

- You got whoops girl, you got whooped.

- Not whooped.

- Okay, not whooped.



She is not a freaking super hero.

The truth is, I let her.

We cool?

Yup, cool.

It was fun, actually.


I'll get you next time.

I'll marmalize you.

You're home early tonight, right?


Catch you later.


Who stole my apple?

Should've known it was you.

Why I wanna do a thing like that?

Cause you can't afford your own.

Just seen you're behind

with your payments.

Terry, look, I'll catch up on the payment.

I promise.

I'll make it up to you.

Get a job, Lara.

Do you think I'm dressed

like this for fun?

I like you, Lara.

I really do, but...


Good Morning Lara...


- Hi, all good?

- Yeah, having a great day.


- Yeah.

- Yeah?

Go to the action.

Invite her to dinner.

Come on!

Anything else?

No, no, no.

- Good bye!

- Good bye!


Why didn't you asked her?

You're stupid.

You got that fox hunt sorted right?

Yeah, more or less.

Got 30 hounds signed up.

Just gotta find the fox now.

Good luck on that.

Need someone quick enough to,

make it interesting?

Yeah, I know, find a thing quick.

But dumb enough to think they can win.

What are you plotting?

We are gonna do a fox hunt.

A what?

It's like a race. Except the fox

gets a head start.

- Leaving a paint trail behind his bike.

- For the baying hounds to follow.

And if they haven't caught by

the time the paint runs out...

he wins all the money.

- How much money?

- 600 quid.

I think you've just found yourself a fox.

Are you being serious?

Not quick or dumb enough for you?

No, I mean, I just...

- You're on.

- Hide fox and all after.

Ooh, Shakespeare?

Hamlet, is it?

Dunno, things just stick in my brain.

You know it's Hamlet.

And I ask you once again...

Why on earth are you bike runner?

You, Bruce.

I wanna be close to you.


5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Go!


- Careful!

- Excuse me!

- Dammit!

- Come on! Go, go, go.

Where did she go?

I won't be long.

- Oi! Watch where you're going!

- Use your mirrors!

Go, go!

Fancy seeing you here.


You didn't have to come,

I don't need a guardian anymore.


You've been decorating?

Haven't seen you for a long time.

You've never seen me.

I'm sorry.

Thanks for coming.

What was today about?

I needed the money.

No, you don't!

There's an inheritance waiting for you.

- If any you'd...

- I won't!

It's been seven years, Lara.

Tokyo Police stopped

looking for your father...

five years ago.

Private investigators won't even
