View Full Version : Tomb Raider the Dagger of Xian Movie

i think tomb raider 2 would make a great movie because i can imagine the scope of the special effects that would be used in creating the Levels into real locations and also a backstory could be that Lara's Great friend was killed in searching for the dagger thats why she got involved, and maybe we could see a new love in Lara's Life,


Lara Croft= Angelina Jolie
Winston= Ian Mkellin (soz bout spellin)
Marco Bartolie= Jack Nicholsin

any of you want to post any ideas through then feel free, even with a few extra characters.

Hmm....It sure would make a great plot. Now the only thing that we have to do is to get the directors interested in this. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

I've always thought that TR2 would by far make the best movie of all the games, mainly because of the upturned boat aspect to the story.

Angelina/Lara training at the Assualt Course, a couple of action, gunplay, target practice, etc...

Lara goes to take a shower. She knows of the existance of the dagger.

After the shower, Lara is at her own library to search for some solid info on the Dagger, when Hillary walks in.

Hillary: Your tea Lady Croft.

Lara: Thank you Hillary.

seconds of silence...

Lara: Do you know what next Sunday will be Hilary?

Hilary:...No Ma'am.

Lara: It will be 5000th anniversary of the Legend of the Dagger Of Xian.

Hillary: Dagger of Xian?

Lara: One of the most powerful artifatcs in history. You see...

Lara: 5000 years ago, the Chinese Emperor Pai-Mei possesed this dagger called the Dagger of Xian.
This dagger had a hex put on it, and it was the dagger's blade that gave the power to the Emperor in ancient times. After gaining the power of the dagger for himself, Legend says that Pai-Mei became Xian himself.

Lara: Thus, war raged in China. After the vicious campaign, which lasted seven long years, Pai-Mei and his army were defeated.

Lara: After the death of the husband, Empress Lao-Ma knew that the power of the dagger was to great for any man to handle, and that it will only bring war, hunger and ultimately death.

Lara: So she ordered the dagger banished for ever. She sent over a thousand men to banish the dagger in the Temple of Xian, which today we call The Great Wall Of China, and none of them was ever seen again.

Lara: And no one knows if the dagger really is hidden in that temple. No one knows for sure what happened in there.

Hillary: Let me guess. You wanna find out for yourself.

Lara: You know me too well.

Lara: Legend has it that once every 5000 years the spirit of Xian awakens within the Dagger, thus giving he who posseses the dagger the power of the Dragon. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I hope you liked it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Lara:There is no need to apoligize Loren, it is obviously very traumatic..... i am deeply saddned by the news........ You say Richard was murdered, by whom?

Loren: Richard was off on one of his excavations In China.... you know he loved his work.... he was with a team near the west side of the great wall, and...... he a-a-nd his team was murdered, sh-ot all of them.

Lara: the great wall...... are the authorities looking into it?

Venice, In a huge gothic building a group of important looking men sit around a round table with a symbol of a dragon in the Middle. The boss is shrouded in darkness cooly flipping a coin. One of the Men stand up.

Jericho: This was not how it was supposed to happen Bartolie, the nera ferma Cult are not thugs, we do not kill innocents.

A man from the other end of the room


chaos breaks off in the hall, everyone argues and abuses. Gun shots come from the Main man. Everyone falls silent.

Bartolie: People..... can everyone just be civil.... cant we all just get along i mea...

Jericho: But bartolie....

At that moment bartolie pulls out his revelover and shoots jericho five times in the chest, jericho falls 2 the ground.

Bartolie: know, without any further intoruptions, i have something to say..... *Bartolie places his reveolver back in his holster* we do not have time to argue about the current situation, because we dont have time, Gentlemen.
We still need to locate the seraph. Know everyone its Late im tired and i dont want to play little childish games so, without further hesitation im going to burn some people who have been.... shall we say invaluable.

Bartolie exits.

Lara smiles knowing to herself that fredrick would love to hear Laras dangerouse adventures.

Lara: Just here and there nothing new or exciting.

Fredrick: Ah well it was lovely to see u Lara..... i think i will go try the dip.

Lara smiles to herself as Fredrick walks away.

Loren aproaches Lara and asks her to come into the study.

Loren: I dont want to keep u to long Lara..... im sure u would want to relax in that country estate of yours.

Lara: Its no bother Loren, really.

Loren: No no i think u best go home anyway.... research these notes that richard left for you.

Winston: The flight to china is on ur command miss.Croft whenever u feel like it.

Lara:Thank you Winston. i will be in the Libary if you need me.

Lara walks up her stairs through a long corridor and into the massive yet beautifull Study.
Lara lays down the folders on her desk and begins to study it.
After hours of reading Lara finds out that Richard had a similar interest as Lara, he was researching the Dagger of Xian.

Lara: 500 Bc......yes.......mmm..........of course......... 4000 years Later............. ahhhhh.

Lara comes across a Painting of the nera Ferma cult and its symbol.

Lara: "The Nera Ferma cult are an ancient regime of devotee's who seek the mythical Dagger of Xian, to corrupt its power in the use of great evil" they couldnt make paradise could they.
"The dagger has the power of the dragon, and the heart that is worthy will recieve the ultimate power of carnage and chaos".

Lara reads on and on for a couple of pages and then comes to a final part a message from Pollard.

"Lara, never tell Loren what i am about to tell you, for trust is only granted when those people you love believe in you, and i dont want to lose Lorens trust even in death. i am in trouble Lara, the ferma cult know of my doings and are threatining to kill me and my loved ones, Last week i was captured while coming home from work, i was held for 2 hours as the Nera Ferma cult interagoated me, they couldnt open the doors to Xian, si i did something terrible, i told them they need to Locate the seraph, but even i do not know its resting ground. Lara if i die go to the west side of the Great wall of china, underneath the chasms u will find the doors to Xian, u cannot enter them but you must see for urself the true nature of the dagger and also u must believe it exsists in order to enter the temple with the seraph. Destroy this letter when u have read it, and i will see you in the afterlife Lara, Goodbye".

Lara sat shaken in her by her desk, she had to Leave for china now.

Lara orders winston to tell the plane to be at her private air strip in one hour as she is going to the great wall. Lara go's into her Grage and unlocks her weapons case, her two Dual pistols are hanging in a special case.

Lara: Well, lets go have some fun.
