Cinemas across America are being asked to step up security next week (beg21APR03) as sexy new posters promoting the TOMB RAIDER sequel appear for the first time.

Film bosses at Paramount fear the sexy posters, which feature ANGELINA JOLIE in a skin-tight silver wetsuit, will fly out of cinemas as soon as they arrive - when lusty fans take them home.

Lara Croft: CRADLE OF LIFE director Jan De Bont admits he's thrilled with the posters.

He says, "It's just as much Angelina as Lara."
