In pursuit of a diamond, Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) battles a large robot in an Egyptian tomb; she disables it by ripping out its circuits. The diamond, revealed to be a memory card, is inserted into a laptop computer inside the robot to play music. The fight took place in a practice area of Lara's home and the robot was programmed by her technical assistant Bryce (Noah Taylor) to challenge her in combat. The first phase of a Syzygy (astronomy), culminating in a solar eclipse, arrives. In Venice, the Illuminati search for a key that will rejoin halves of "The Triangle", which must be completed by the final phase. Manfred Powell (Iain Glen), an Illuminati member, assures that they are almost ready, but actually has no idea of the location.
Lara Croft is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the video game franchise Tomb Raider. Paramount Pictures acquired the film rights for Tomb Raider in 1998, releasing two films in 2001 and 2003 with Angelina Jolie starring in the lead role.
