Hi all. Just thought I'd mention this in passing. I was at pinewood studios yesterday doing a gig, (I'm a musician), and pinewood is famous for being the home of the james bond movies amongst others. Anyway, I was looking at various framed pictures of different movies they'd made there, which included all the bond films, superman, aliens, mission impossible, and, Tomb Raider Cradle of Life. The description below the picture of Tomb Raider Cradle of Life said that most of the scenes were made in the main 007 stage. I wasn't allowed inside the bond studio but walking up to it it was simply an impressively MASSIVE hangar. That's all I wanted to say, thought you might be interested with the tomb raider connection. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
